We NEED more of this kind of patriotism in our country, or it will cease to exist.

New Zealand didnt get televison until 1962. I was already a fan of John Wayne western movies and all the rest of what hollyWood could offer, television opened up a cornucopia of entertainment i have never recovered from. It helped cement my life long love of all things American.

Friday 8.17am. Hi Doug. I meant to thankyou for posting that clip but in my excitment i forgot. Back then American television programes opened the floodgates of the world for me and the advent of the internet has made possible my jaunts down memory lane along with the realisation I'm getting old.
I have good days and bad days recovering from my experience and it doesnt help having become a walking skeleton. I lost over 30kilo's and I'm having problems trying to put it back. I'm as weak as a kitten and still dont have any taste or saliva glands back yet so eating is a pain. Plus its winter here and bloody cold. i sit by the wood fire just happy to be warm. Its blowing a southerly gale and raining hard here today. I think i might watch some old episodes of "The Blue Knight' with George Kennedy.

Good to know your getting better and yes getting old sucks. I know what you mean about weight....I'm nothing but skin and bones with a pot belly. Guess it's my DrPeppers. Doctor told me last week I had gout but when the blood work came back he was wrong...arthritis. Just as painful but I "think" the treatment options are a lot better. We'll see!
Take care and stop by and say "Hi" more often. Oh...I could use some of your cold weather. This weeks forecast is 100+° for the next 7 days. Above normal but still pretty typical. Did I say I hate hot weather?
Take care!
