Thank goodness you didn't go with the Donner party. Of course, they were going in the direction you were leaving.

LOL!!

Hmmm. I had her going to St. Louis and then deciding to leave for San Francisco, where she once again bought a lumber mill, made gobs of money, built herself a mansion on one of SF's hills . . .

And of course, Rhett DID show up . . . He had followed the gold west, too!

I understand she and Mammy opened up a dress-making business that is very profitable because they create magnificent fashions out of curtains and drapes.

One of the most classic moments in the golden age of American TV!

Other ones include Jackie Gleason getting flustered while appearing on a TV game show in The Honeymooners, or Lucy stomping on grapes in an Italian vineyard in I Love Lucy.

As a complete and utter retiree, job opportunities do not intrigue me. But never say never, right?
Yes, the weather would be a big thing with me. I am, literally, a 'desert brat', born and raised, so cold places don't turn me on. I've lived in enough cold places (MI, AK, ID) that I have no desire to do it again. I was in South Dakota the first week of Mar. and about froze my patootie off! It was -5 the day I arrived and the high for the week was 24! Wind chill made it even worse. No thank you.

Arizona has enough "wide open spaces" for me!

There are lots of retirees who don't have to think about employment but there are others, like me, who do. One good thing about my job is that, if I wanted to, I could transfer anywhere in the US...or out of it for that matter. Not planning on any of that though.

I really enjoyed the Carol Burnett Show, and I love Carol. She is a brilliant comedian.

Some of my other favorites: Jerry Mathers as the Beaver in Leave It To Beaver; Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha in Bewitched; Paul Lynde in the center square in Hollywood Squares; Nancy Kulp as Miss Jane Hathaway on The Beverly Hillbillies; Eva Gabor as Lisa in Green Acres.

Anyone else have favorite TV shows and stars of yesteryear???

Inquiring minds want to know!
