getting up at 5:30 am saturdays to watch "wagon wheel theater", or "chuckwagon theater",
or any of its many other incarnations. Watching Roy Rogers take on the bad guys and win one for all of us. Remember when the good guys actually won? Remember when you could actually tell the good guys from the bad guys? Remember when there was actually a difference ... and it mattered? Remember when heros were actually more than just a target for some journalist to see if he can destroy him.

Ok, don't laugh. Bob Keeshan ... Captain Kangeroo. I loved that man, and his show. A show you could depend on, and for so many years.

Country music from the 50's thru the 70's. I gotta save up and get that timelife Country Classics set someday. Eddy Arnold, Sonny James, Marty Robbins, .... and so many more.

I gotta include pop music from the 50's. I LOVE Patti Page's "Allegheny Moon". Actually, I was a child of the 60's. But my mom sang around the house all the time. And she had records. I guess I gotta get the timelife 50's pop music set too.

All the western tv shows. "Gunsmoke" ( probably one of the best written shows of all time.)
"Tales of Texas Rangers", all the Roy Rogers movies and tv shows. ( I can hear "happy trails" in my head now.)

People whose careers were pretty much before my time, but I was fortunate enough to catch the latter part of their performing. .... Jimmy Durante, Phil Silvers, Liberace ( if you never saw his tv show ... it was very entertaining. Great pianist, and his enthusiasm pulled you in ), all the old radio dramas. The great voice of William Conrad as Matt Dillon on the radio version of Gunsmoke. ( who, of course, later played "Cannon" on tv.) Being up close to the radio to get all the sound effects when there was a fight scene.

I loved movies with Danny Kaye. "Man from the Diner's Club" ( there's a scene where he's in an all glass, soundproof room, full of old school computers. He's done something wrong and the computers are spitting out thousands of those old computer punch cards. And he's screaming and pounding on the glass walls, trying to get anyone's attention, and nobody notices him as he's buried by the cards. It was hilarious.).... "The Court Jester" .... and anybody who didn't cry at end of "The 5 Pennies" has no heart.

Movies with the incredible pairing of Bob Hope and Phyllis Diller. They were in like 5 or 6 movies together. " Eight on the Lam" " No Reservations", "Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number",
a movie where he was on a supply ship in the navy, I can't think of the others.

The tv series " F Troop ". Larry Storch was great.

Sarah Vaughn singing " Eternally", and "Broken Hearted Melody" .... You know, you can find alot of these songs on Youtube. A great place to go for clips of old time singers.

Old black and white horror and sci fi movies. "Tarantula", "Them", "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms", "The Creature from the Black Lagoon", and many others. Many of which can also be seen at Youtube, just in 10 minute segments. But still watchable. ( I also found a really dumb movie that I love on Youtube. It's called "The Alien from L.A." and stars Kathy Ireland. She falls down a hole into a subterranean world. Its DUMB, but I like it. )

Well, that's more than enough for now.

Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans!
I thought the captain was a very old man when I was little......LOL With the black and white tv, his hair and moustache looked white....

We talked a security guard into letting us in one once. He kept telling us to stay low against an upstairs walkway wall until we got well away from him.
He said "They'll have my job for this if you get caught"
How is your hearing?
My husband went to many, many Fillmore West concerts.....his isn't so great.....

I'm just a few minutes from their development, but I can't even think of the name of it...middle=aged hormones are the pits....I'm senile...have to drive by the place in order jog my brain...... It's an older development along the ocean....people buy homes in there and also the Monarch Beach development just to tear down and rebuild......

I had a friend who used to jam with Stephen Stills in that development.....he didn't live there......he would visit somebody who lived there....

Lots of famous people live in this area, but the richest ones, (or the most famous), are the most low key and discreet....

I don't recognize that store......is it still around? I imagine it has been run out of business by the likes of CVS, etc....

Bob Keesan "Captain Kangaroo" was actually only 28 in 1955 when he started The Captain Kangaroo Show.

I saw a lot of good bands at the Filmore West also and my hearing isn't very good either !
Coincident ?, -- I think not !!! A person could get wasted just breathing all the second-hand pot smoke at a concert there !

When you are 5, that's ancient! LOL Heck, I thought he was old like Santa.......

Yep, I saw pics of him later on...(without the wig, etc)...he didn't look like that at all......

I had forgotten about Bunny Rabbit......there was a song......'picking up xxxx, putting them in a basket, picking up xxxx, putting them in a basket'. What was the 'xxxx'? I want to say 'pom poms', but the rabbit was always in a little fake field of flowers.....

Hey, reziac ... Just so you know.. If any of those cargo ships strays way off course, and comes floating through Montana, I'm gonna be on it like Barney Frank on a male escort..... like senator kerry on a rich wife...
like a democrat on an illegal's vote... ( uh oh, I feel somethin startin )... like a Montana university football couch on a gang bangin inner city L.A. high school cornerback... like an aclu lawyer on a town that puts up a nativity scene... like an environmental group on a plan for a new oil refinery... like al gore on stock in a business that will skyrocket because of the global warming frenzy ( just coincidence, of course ... he couldn't POSSIBLY be in the middle of all this to make money... NOT GORE !! )... like an endangered species lawyer on a farmer who accidentally kills an protected rat... like obama on a socialist agenda ( if he could ONLY get everything he wants passed, without any REAL scrutiny, before the public comes down off their "obama high" and back to reality and starts paying real attention to what he's doing ) ... ( ok, I just said that last "paying attention" part to see if I could say it with a straight face... I couldn't. )... BUT ANYWAY, just wanted to let you know that I'm locked and loaded, and ready to pounce...but there's always room for one more pirate...pick up rickers, anyone else who wants to come...we'll find a nice lake and throw in our lines and wait for the ship to come by... with any luck, there'll already be some hijackers on it..we can use them for bait..a largemouth bass will eat anything.
