Been feeling that way lately.

I've been enjoying older music- you know, The Beatles ... Van Morrison, Nick Drake ... ah - Neil Diamond. GOOD TIMES.

and then I started watching older shows- like The Beverly Hillbillies and every Sunday night TVLand they show two episodes of Bewitched and then I Dream of Genie. I have been having the BEST time.

I also discovered AMC channel and I watch all the old movies. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof with Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor was AWESOME!

My most recent thing has been reading the 1988 book by George Burns called "Gracie, A Love Story"- as you know, he lived to be 100 years and 7 weeks old ... but his poor wife died when she was 58. He was married to her for 38 years and then lived another 32 without her. Heartbreaking. But they had a long and lively career together- I never knew. They also had a show called the George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (I know, original ...) for 8 seasons and I had NO IDEA. I have been watching the old episodes on Youtube ...

So anyway, that's what I've been up to. I've been this way since Christmas.

Oh and Conrad has asked me to say something about Petticoat Junction, even though I've never seen as much as one episode. He wants me to mention it so I will talk about "Hooterville".
