It's a gorgeous day out there, considering it's "almost winter" - high of 55, all sun, no rain, just fresh air and brightness! Enjoy it while it lasts, peeps.

Today is "World Television Day". Some of you have a rough idea how old I am, and I've been around TV before I even went to school in the early 50's. (Holy crap, I'm freakin' ancient!) My father worked as a salesman for General Mills in this area, and was very interested in advertising, so we had a TV very early on. He watched as if he was studying the medium, and it turns out he was. When I was about 5, he got a job at a radio station that was just entering into the world of TV, and he ended up hosting a show on this new station, featuring "Hopalong Cassidy" movies. The host's name was "Cactus Bob", and I actually have photos of my dad sitting on a horse along side Hoppy sitting on whatever his horse was named. He finally told me, much later in life, that his face was just pasted in the photo, in those pre-Photoshop days. Every once in a while, when some of the other shows would need people to fill their scenes, my mother and I got to be "extras", unpaid, of course. And I got to meet Oscar Meyer, and had a ride in the WeinerMobile.

Does that last part sound as weird as I think it does? :crackup:
