T-Bird said...

new thread, I'll have to say I'm usually at work that is a new one for me

T-Bird said...

I'm not sure what to do :)

movin said...

GOOD AFTERNOON, FOLKS.

I had some puter problems, AOL this time I think, and had to shut it all down. Then I had to do a lot of tinkering with the adjustments. Hope it worked. I lost a large, beautiful email I was writing at the time, which does not make me happy.

But how are things in the world of our eagles today?

T-Bird said...

k jim-have there been any eagles today-I had no luck this morning?!

NatureNut said...

WOW, New thread---Thx, Steve. You must be really busy cooking up something?!
Just read all the past stuff---HELLO, NORMABYRD! How was your vacation w/escort? LOL Good to see your bright greetings again.
And Helen--A TV star! I assume that was you talking to the little boy on the Trail.
Been doing some work on pics--not all IDed yet. Hope to post anyway sometime tonight.
We had a short but heavy rain. Over now & sun--didn't get the bad stuff w/wind, hail, etc.

magpie said...

Hello Eagle Buds..
SISSY - I am "slam wore out" - gonna hit the sack for a bit, will get back up to check the skies for possible planet watching.

Might have to work midnight, ugh.
If not, then I am on my days off with several extra thrown in, leave/vacation time. WHOO HOO as JO would say.

NORMA: WELCOME BACK, WE SURE HAVE MISSED THOSE "HO's"

MEGAN: THANKS FOR THE MOON INFO, CORN MOON/STURGEON MOON, FULL RED MOON..COULD IT BE REDDER THAN LAST MONTH ??

Be back on much much later,

Happy Evening Everyone xox

wvgal_dana said...

Nice to see everyone. Need to read other thread. ( :

Watching Tennis waiting for "Dressage" to come on Olympics.

wvgal_dana said...

I see we lost A 65 Skye sad...

Although they spotted one they thought that had died. A 54 that's a good thing.

wvgal_dana said...

I have IE and the pop up cam stays up for me too Paula. ( :

NatureNut said...

I got my Park Butterfly Garden pics on the blog. The last blue flower has not been IDed yet, but I bet Megan knows!

BTW, Norma mentioned Jimmy Durante.I remember when he would sign off his TV show, he would say,"and goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are." If anyone else remembers that, they're either a trivia buff, or a senile citizen like me!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Nature I too remember Jimmy Durante...he could really make you laugh.

MITS said...

count me in as a senile citizen....remember it like it was yesterday...

MITS said...

BTW got to beach around 7....Beltway traffic as usual...few little raindrops....got gas at a station right after I got off the Bay Bridge....had to wait in line...$3.49:):)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Lord, I missed the new thread. Hi ya'll. How are ya?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Sharon said gas in Wytheville, VA was 3.49 too mits.

Mema Jo said...

Sure can count me as a senile citizen
Good ole' Schnozzola with his cigar!
Remember - Inka Dinka Doo

wvgal_dana said...

Shaking the ash off my cigar lol

Mema Jo said...

Frodocam Gallery has been started - only 1 pic to view right now - and it's not Jim's pic that he sent to them. I'm sure they'll add lots more

Deb said...

I remember Inka dinka doo, don't think I remember the goodnight thing though.

Who had the wife, Gracie? He would say, "Say goodnight, Gracie." And then she would say, "Goodnight, Gracie."

Deb said...

Wow, I love the pop up, too. Mine stays where I put it, though.

Ceil said...

Deb George Burns and Gracie Allen

Mema Jo said...

Wanted you to know SGT Ryan will hopefully be SSG Ryan the beginning of next month.He emailed that he had the promotion review board and that he maxed the board receiving 150 points out of 150.If it were not for you all keeping me in your prayers... I never could have done it. Thank you all for everything you have done for me and my soldiers. I miss you all so much and think nonstop about returning home

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening everyone. Justin and I arrived in Bedford a short time ago.

Ceil said...

Deb did you get up to the tower today

Mema Jo said...

We had just boxed up some items to ship to him in Iraq - goodies plus hubby copies movies on CD's to send to him. Now we are working on the box for SGT Patrick! If anyone wants addresses to send cards just email me. It really means a lot to the troops to receive mail & boxes. Ryan also makes sure that items are shared with the men under him that don't receive any word from stateside.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb your pictures are AWESOME !!! ( : thank you so much for sharing them

wvgal_dana said...

Going to watch some tv

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for giving us your current location EESharon!

HI JUSTIN

I bet Buddy was glad to see you!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Actually, gas was $3.45 cents in Wytheville but at the intersection of 220 and I81, it was $3.43. In between, in Salem, VA, it was 3.77.

Mema Jo said...

CU later Dana.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Buddy is busy right now chasing Justin all through the house. Buphals and Mopsy don't know quite what to do!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

God Bless Ryan and your family Mema Jo!!

Mema Jo said...

DEB - What a variety of pictures.
Trying to catch the fish is excellent
Had to enlarge the one pic to see what it was you were staying away from - YUCK! Spider sure is nasty looking!

Hope you answer Ceil's question about getting up into the tower and I hope you were able to hold an osprey

Floralgirl said...

Hey Jo, can you email me those addresses?
Naturenut, nice pics! That blue flower is a salvia-looks like salvia guaranitica- I love the hummingbird pics!

Floralgirl said...

I just finally finished looking at Deb's pics- they are wonderful also. Love the osprey pics, that spider gave me the creeps though..ew...

Deb said...

Yes, I got to go up in the tower and it was amazing. I am working on the pictures now. I only had trouble one time and that was when I realized the tower swayed when anyone moved. Not a pleasant feeling. I was glad to get my feet on the ground. I will tell all about my trip up in a bit, I need a pop.

Ceil said...

Just got to see your pictures Deb. Beautiful. Night Dana.

Ceil said...

Good for you Deb.

Deb said...

Congrats to Ryan, how great for him.

Glad to see Norma was on today, even though I don't get to stick around, I miss reading her greetings.

Dana, have missed reading about you, also.

Megan, that spider was huge, not quite as big as a tarantula, but grossed me out. The college students thought it was great.

Deb said...

I have my drink of Diet Coke and am ready to tell you about the tower. I will finish the pictures tonight, then you can see. Hope it isn't too long, but know a lot of you will find it fascinating like I did.

Deb said...

We had 4 birds to prep for release today. Toto and Moreau, the two back from the Raptor Center in St Paul, then Sneezy and Sioux (I got to name her). Toto was easy, we just painter the wings pink so we could find her easier. Next was Moreau, who was named after the river where the eaglet chicks were rescued from drowning. Their nest was about to be destroyed by the Missouri River, which rose 12' this year. That was good for the river, but bad for the nest. The eaglets are in Idaho at Jane's ranch. Moreau just had to have a tail receiver put on so we could track short distances, it will fall off eventually. Then we painted her wings.

MITS said...

sounds great Deb:)

Mema Jo said...

Loretta - Your turn for the compliments! Loved all your photos.
Need a close up of the county bluebird statue!~ The marsh walk is really pretty with lots of things to see. You keep a very pretty park!!!

Deb said...

The next two both had tail feathers that had been broken and had to be replaced. They use their tail for flying and when they are just learning to fly, it is important to send them out in the world with everything going for them.

The Raptor Center sent down 8 feathers for tails and quite a few for wings. We didn't have any broken wing feathers, but we ended up having to improvise on into a tail. This is not the preferred thing to do, but not using it would have left a space in the tail. Jane found a wing feather that fit quite well and put it in a non-strategic place.

These birds didn't get receivers as they wanted the tail feathers to stay in place without any interference. I got to hold Sneezy, the last bird we prepped. I say we, but I was just the photographer.

Mema Jo said...

I don't blame you for not liking swaying towers - especially if you're up in it! Deb, was Moreau an osprey or an eaglet?

Mema Jo said...

Where is Jane's home base, Deb.

Ceil said...

So glad you got to hold one. Lucky you.

Deb said...

I will tell you briefly how they attach the tail feathers. The feather shaft is hollow, as you know, so they use wood dowels that they carve down to the correct size to fit in the shaft. The dowel is then glued in the shaft. The feathers were all prepped on the ground, so that when they inserted them into the bird's shaft, they only had to size one end of the dowel to fit. It was very interesting to watch. Last step was to get the feathers all back in place and the tail looked good as new.

NatureNut said...

Hi Gang, I finally completed adding my "swamp things" to the blog. And Jo, I did name all but one, but I have my peeps working on it!! Enjoy

BBL--dishes,etc.,yuck

MITS said...

unbelievable, Deb

Deb said...

Moreau was an osprey, he was named after the river that comes into the Missouri River where the eaglets were rescued from. Did I confuse you more?

Bottom line, Moreau is an osprey.

Jane is in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Deb said...

Loretta, love the pictures. You have so many different plants than we do, the bald cypress tree is so neat. What are the green, roundish things on the tree?

Mema Jo said...

I got it Moreau is an osprey

It is just unbelievable (like Mits said) about this experience you are having. I am so very happy for you!

Ceil said...

Who needs tv when we have such great photos and life experience stories. Loretta beautiful pictures. Thanks everyone.

NatureNut said...

Couldn't leave yet,,,,had to read comments & hear about Deb's spectacular adventures!!!!If I saw a spider, I woulda been outta there even if I had to jump! Funny, altho I've been interested in insects for decades, I still hate spiders!! Maybe 'cuz they have 8 legs, not 6!?

MITS said...

I am just now getting to look at Debs' and Lorettas' pics....storm sounds like it is coming...so I'm going off for awhile need to upnpack and take some ALEVE, standing for so long yesterday and 4 hour drive today, has me a little sore.

Mema Jo said...

Talk to you tomorrow, Mits

Hedgie said...

Loretta,
Don't know when Durante did that...I remember it (Mrs. Calabash and inka dinka doo), but not sure if from trivia or tv spots, or if it was the real deal!! I'm 59...
Hey, Dana!! How are ya'?

Hedgie said...

Jo, congrats on promotion. I'd like their addressess, please!

Ceil said...

I think I will call it a night. Pleasant dreams. Prayers for all in need. WAKE UP MASON. Prayers for our military men and women for their safety.

Hedgie said...

Helen, glad your trip was uneventful....and that gas was cheaper!!

NatureNut said...

Hi Lynn, I remember Durante saying that Goodnight at the end of his TV show. Now does everybody remember Howdy Doody??? LOL

Thx, Megan about blue flower. I had no idea it was salvia! Naturalist who does the garden was out of town.
Speaking of 'puter problems, for awhile now, everytime I am adding pictures to Blogger and trying to do text,AOL pops on all by itself! Pain in the &*^%T!!!I keep minimizing it & it keeps popping!
I just went into Default programs & changed it to IE since we have to get on to AOL w/it anyway. Have to see if that works.

Hedgie said...

Loretta, your park is beautiful and you have captured it so well!

Hedgie said...

Deb, you are just having way too much fun, girlfriend!!! SO happy for you.

Hedgie said...

Margy...hope you don't have to go in tonight...they've had a heck of an evening! Big bad wreck on 81 w/ at least one fatality, 3 or 4 vehicles. Traffic stopped both directions, diverted, backup thru' town, etc.

magpie said...

IT'S HOWDY DOODY TIME, IT'S HOWDY DOODY TIME.....YES, I REMEMBER THAT (BARELY) - older siblings were watching it so I had no choice.


MEMA - SEND ME THE ADDRESSES TOO PLEASE...

I AM AWESTRUCK WITH DEB'S ADVENTURES, AND ALL THE FLOWER, FUR AND FEATHERS PICS YOU FOLKS HAVE BEEN PUTTING ON YOUR BLOGS...

MITS said...

ok, GOODNIGHT EVEYONE....WAKE UP MASON.......NOW!!!!.....LOVE WATCHING AND LISTENING TO STORMS OVER THE OCEAN.

magpie said...

...AND BUTTERFLY AND CREEPY CRAWLIES PICS..

I found a (deceased) blue dragon fly in my car this afternoon after work - just googled some words to look more up and somehow a site called 'MAGPIE MAGIC' opened up....Uh..what's that all about ??(It's a home-made jewelry site...)

Hedgie said...

Yeah, Howdy Doody, Ranger Hal, Miss Francis and Ding Dong School...the list goes on!!!

magpie said...

LYNN - So far, so good, have not gotten called in.
Sounds bad, the wreck you just described...have heard a of sirens off and on...I DO NOT like that kind of activity - and never cared for it when I ran ambulance calls either....I was never a TRAUMA JUNKIE...

MITS said...

DEB and LORETTA...what beautiful pictures you both did, very simple and beautiful....love them

magpie said...

How about Pic Temple?

Hedgie said...

Goodnight, Mits!! Nothing more peaceful to fall asleep to than the shore and rain!
Margy...so you have your own business, huh? LOL. Too bad someone forgot to tell you...or share the profits!

magpie said...

Sam and Friends....

Hedgie said...

Yep, Pick Temple, too!
Well, Margy, got to admit that trauma was not my favorite thing in nursing, but saw plenty of it in ER; we were very fortunate at GM not to have had many serious injuries...can probably count on 2 hands the number of "serious" in 28yrs.

magpie said...

DEB - Just love those names for the birds....you are having some magical experiences, the feather replacement information is fascinating.

LORETTA: your pictures are great too!

There is SO MUCH TALENT, WISDOM, AND COMPASSION ON THIS BLOG!


XO XO

Hedgie said...

Who/what was Sam and Friends??

magpie said...

HELLO AND GOOD NIGHT MITS....GLAD YOU ARE BACK TO THE ATLANTIC...

..THE LIFE OF A MOVIE STAR.....

XO

magpie said...

Sam and Friends came on very late at night, after the Steve Allen show I think, was a short little thing with some muppet like characters, Sam, I think, was kind of like Kermit....I have to admit I don't remember much about it...just caught a few glimpses during the summer when older siblings were home from school...

Gosh, I am still hearing sirens.

magpie said...

Prayers for the accident victims, and all the providers involved in these emergencies here....

NatureNut said...

Deb, your pictures are FABULOUS!!!!I love the fishing sequence. I don't know how you got pics w/out having to make a video! Early in the spring I watched an adult female dive 3 times to get a fish.How great these juvies are doing it already.
The round balls on the cypress leaves are the fruit--dark, rounded cones. Altho in Pine family, they shed their leaves/needles in the fall.This is about as far north as they will grow.
The Park areas I've posted pics of are just near our office. The whole Park is 2000 acres (the less space for bldgs!!!!)We have 11 other small properties open to the public---no offices.Mostly hiking, fishing & canoe/kayak launch areas.
Jo, congrats to Ryan & prayers for all over there and for Mason.

magpie said...

New York Ironweed and Cardinal flower, two of my favorites, Loretta!

Deb said...

I will have to finish today's pictures later, they are all technical type, showing a lot of what I described. I am getting a headache, I think too much sun and I am tired, too. No Olympics tonight for me, I am off to bed.

Night everyone, glad you are enjoying my adventures along with me.

magpie said...

Your spot sounds like a great place for a Field Trip, Loretta...is it open to the public?
What a great place to work !

Mema Jo said...

I had to google that one........

Sam and Friends was Jim Henson's first television show, a five-minute show that aired twice daily on WRC-TV, the NBC affiliate in Washington, D.C. The show ran from May 9, 1955 to December 15, 1961.

I never saw it..... lol

Hedgie said...

Margy, I've always been a law enforcement junkie, and with firefighter/paramedic S-I-L's have become EMS junkie, too. After nursing, I started what was then called Police Science degree program...got married and moved here and didn't finish that one! Went to Calvin Bayer to apply for a deputy opening, and the a-hole laughed at me and said "we don't hire women." Such were the old days!

magpie said...

Okay - that would explain the Kermit character...Thanks JO -

I remember one sweet little sequence they would do: "Inch Worm, Inch Worm..."

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, this was a late thread.

Late eve here too, busy, busy...

Getting ready to watch Phelps swim!

Deb said...

Thanks, Loretta, for the info on the cypress tree. We don't have them here. My camera is very fast, so I can get a lot of pictures quickly for the fishing sequences.

Off to bed!

Hedgie said...

Cool, Jo...I was too young to be up that late!

magpie said...

Haven't seen any Olympics yet, but I'm gonna now! thanks Paula..

NatureNut said...

Sorry to hear of traffic accidents up there. Do you have to go to work, Margy?
I remember you mentioned Ironweed & now it's out. I missed a couple Turk's head lilies--out earlier if they survived & we should be having Turtlehead. Last year's drought did a number on plants--esp. at my house!
BTW, I didn't mention Pick Temple 'cuz he was local, but Lynn is from DC, right? "All Giant Rangers will grow big & strong." Giant food was his sponsor.

Mema Jo said...

My thoughts exactly Margie

Let's pick out a day when you are not working & Loretta can be our guide - Eagle express might even be available for a tank of gas!

Is the park in St Mary's County
Like 100 miles from up here?

Hedgie said...

TOo young in '55, anyway...so it started on my 6th b-day! Of course I remember Steve Allen...but don't recall how long he was on the air...Jack Paar took over for him, right?

NatureNut said...

Oh Boy--good Olympic stuff!!!
Thx, Paula!!

Good Night to all

Hedgie said...

Right you are, Loretta. Giant Food was the sponsor!

Floralgirl said...

Beautiful pics all around! love ironweed too, we have lots of it growing in our garden, great butterfly plant. Nite all, got to get up early and make the donuts..oops, I mean cut flowers..now I'm hungry for donuts..

Wake up Mason!!

Mema Jo said...

Headed out of here for the evening

Good Night Everyone
Peace to you & yours
Prayers for all being said


WAKE UP MASON

NatureNut said...

P.S. Our Park is open everyday but Thanksgiving, Xmas & New Year's, 8AM til sundown.

Hedgie said...

Goodnight Jo, Megan and Loretta! Sleep well. Blessings on you all!

NatureNut said...

PPS: Jo, Park is in PG County,10 miles E outside Beltway

magpie said...

Well, that was awesome! The home-town boy from Baltimore!

..I wouldnta seen all those shows without my older sibs born in 1939 and 1941...they would just howl with laughter, that's woke me up sometimes.

I guess I am IN for the night, no skies for the planets again, cloud cover again..

Yes, a field trip.

S'cuse me, gonna stand for the National Anthem.

xo

magpie said...

Wake Up Mason.....You gotta hear all this chatter !

Blessings, Prayers to all...Good Night, those heading for the feather pillows...


xo xo

paula eagleholic said...

Finally got thru this thread..pics will have to wait till tomorrow.

I can happily say I don't remember any of those shows! tee hee!

Gonna call it a night, would love to stay up and watch the women's gymnastics...but stayed up too late earlier in the week, I'm beat.

Interesting conversations tonight from everyone!

Mema Jo said...

Phelps is on in 14 minutes....

magpie said...

floralgirl: another AWESOME avatar...

Hedgie said...

Paula, you are just a baby!!
Goodnight, all. Prayers for all. Wake up, Mason!!

magpie said...

Phelps wins again!

magpie said...

I think PAULA comes in before Strawberry Shortcake, the Smurfs and Cabbage Patch Dolls, though....

magpie said...

My parents allowed my next older brother to take a nap before watching "The Untouchables"...
and I was kinda fond of the Red Skelton show...

magpie said...

It's either doughnuts, meat loaf, stuffed peppers, or OLD SHOWS on this BLOG -

Time to get ready to go back to bed...dodged the 9-1-1 bullet tonight...

Overcast at the Finney's sites..nothing in either nest.

Deer at the Salt Licks in PA woods..

magpie said...

Whoa, thanks Wanda, thanks JO for the alert you sent out Tuesday on Yahoo...the CNN top stories one..

I couldn't afford to fix the computer if this happens....

Chick on the nest at Finney's and sun trying to shine through at Over the Water...beautiful, both.
xo

magpie said...

That chick is WAY DOWN in the nest at Finney's - -

Mema Jo said...

It is after midnight - you two gals best get to bed.
Margie - 2 people were killed in that accident over on 81.

Goooooooood Night!

movin said...

GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY...

i'VE been kind of "out of it" a lot today ... definitely not my day!

I'm hoping and praying we all have a better day tomorrow and for Mason to WAKE UP!

i THINK I've had oatmeal every meal today (pre-flavored instant stuff); AND NOW I'm contemplating inventing "Fried Oatmeal." Sounds pretty good, I'm going to try it.

"Sweet dreams."


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

magpie said...

MOVIN: Hope you are more IN TO IT now, rather than OUT OF IT....best wishes for feeling better....

You take care.....

xo

NatureNut said...

YAAAAYYYY!!!! Gold & Silver for US women in gymnastics & Phelps gets another medal too!!

movin said...

P.S. Fried Apple-cinnamon oatmeal is good. I microwaved a packet with less milk than usual, so it was fairly solid. Then I browned it well in very little margarine. Probably could add jam or apple sauce...if you had some. Try it.

I think you could also go the other way with it: use the unflavored stuff, add salt, pepper, onions, etc.

Last week I added a packet of unflavored oatmeal to a half batch of pancakes, and it was good too, although it's flavor is kind of "pale" ... so far.

T-Bird said...

good morning all

T-Bird said...

Has anyone seen any eagles/juvies? Especially the juvies, which I, personally, have not seen for a long time.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Blogger cop is awake already this morning. So good to see those beautiful eagles this morning. God is so good!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

What a beautiful sight this morning!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I think Lib just left the nest.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

And now they are gone!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Gone, gone!! That was such a treat this morning. That is worth getting up this early for.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

An adult is back.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

And gone again.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I think the nest is looking like these adults are doing nestorations already! Looks like maybe Belle in there now.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh my gosh, Norma! You have no idea how much I missed your smiling face in the mornings!! So good to have you back!

movin said...

A VERY GOOD FRIDAY MORNING TO YOU ALL IN THE LAND OF THE AMERICAN EAGLE...


Don't know how long it will last, but I'm up early this morning.


T-Bird, I think our juvenile eaglets have all flown from the nest area and into their future.

Nobody has seen them in more than a week, but the adults have begun making visits to restore the nest, which they don't do while the young are still using the nest, AND they are never followed by hungry eaglets.

Apparently, the personnel at the training center haven't seen them around either.

Don't know if they might return, since it's still early in the season, but they are gone exploring now.

:~D

Floralgirl said...

Hello all:) I don't know Norma, rumor had it you were spotted on a cam at Sturgis, ND on the back of a Harley.... very foggy here this am, which is good, cause I'm still cutting flowers..bbl-

Deb said...

Good morning, everyone. I slept in a little this morning, but need to get out of here shortly.

Norma, every day I think about how wonderful it is to have this opportunity. Sneezy is off to the Raptor Center today, keep your fingers crossed that he comes back.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Parent back at our nest, working on nestorations again.

Deb said...

I hope Norma went to SD, not ND or she missed the bike rally.

magpie said...

I see that mOUNTAINEER on the nest !!

Deb said...

I am so glad I slept in and got to see a parent!

getting his dark feathers now, and it won't be long before it fledges,,,,

Weather here dull but fine,, we are waiting on more rain and storms for the weekend,, and have as always got the sandbags to hand,,,

My Sparrow-Hawks are doing just beautifully,,,,,

Daddy is looking after his daughter, who I have named "Poppy", they visit my garden every day,,,

Don't see much of mum and son now,, I think she has taken him off to train elsewhere,,,, but they all come back to their tree every night and sing for me,, just wonderful,,,,

Well thats all the news I can think of for now,,,,

Still in paroxysms of grief over Mei notgoing to produce a cub this year, ah well there's always next year,,, and we have Lun Lun who will hopefully give us a baby soon,,,

love and hugs

Mei keeps squatting on the sidewalk and then dancing at the fence, wanting back in!

magpie said...

Chrissy - are you on the still cam? We have not had live cam for several days now....

Just saw that Hobby get a meal...and parent is at the nest again..

One of the Loch Garten chicks was just on the nest too, and now nest empty, camera panning to the tree it is perched on.

Good Over the Pond morning to ya' and I'd have some of that Raspberry Pavlova if you could get it to me...I'd even do some of your ironing for it!

Hope all will go well for Frank, glad they haven't found anything yet...I guess that's a good sign...?

I guess I'm the only one who remembers when there was NO TV. Entertainment was Radio. Jack Benny, Sky King, Our Miss Brooks and The Lone Ranger.

And can't forget Emergency, All in the Family and MASH!
