Happy Hump Day Guys and Dolls:
Hoping you all had a pleasant evening and will enjoy today and live life to the fullest. Last night Roe and I attended a social dinner at Olive Garden for her Sheriff’s Citizens Alumni Association. We both love the Pasta e Fagioli soup, nice and hearty but what to have for dinner was a tough choice. I like Veal Parm but they don’t make that dish at the Olive Gardens here. I’ll tell you my dinner choice later in this blog, keep you guessing for a few minutes.
Today is the anniversary of the TV premier of the Lone Ranger back in 1949. As kids in those days we did not have many TV heroes like today’s kids. Let me see if I can remember some:
The Lone Ranger and Tonto – Hi Ho Silver
Zorro – The Fox
Roy Rogers and Dale Evans – Was not really a big fan of Old Roy.
Sky King – Out of the desert sky comes Sky King.
Hopalong Cassidy – Can’t remember too much about Hoppy except for that big hat he wore.
Sgt. Preston of the Yukon – Always got his man.
The Cisco Kid and Pancho – OH Pancho, OH Cisco.
Ramar of the Jungle (My Old Time Favorite), just to name a few.
Then as I started to grow a little older came James Bond, Matt Helm and Our Man Flint movies. On TV we had the Man from UNCLE, I Spy, 77 Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, Have Gun Will Travel, Gunsmoke, Bonanza and too many others to mention. To me those were my kind of hero shows.
Suppose you could be a hero, what would you be and what would be your name? Pretend, just like Dom DeLuise as Captain Chaos in the Cannonball Run movies. I gave this a long thought and I’d like to be:
“LANCE LARSON, MAN OF MYSTERY”, of what kind of mystery I don’t know. Well Speakies don’t be ashamed send me your hero name. Until then Lance Larson over and out.
By the way my dinner choice was the never ending pasta bowl and I chose Angel Hair with Marinara sauce, I have lunch now also as the pig in me ate 2 bowls of soup. Roe picked her favorite, Eggplant Parm with a side of fettucini in garlic butter sauce and mushrooms. Have a great day Guys and Dolls and be careful out there.
