We do not have cable t.v. in our house in Houston. It’s not a moral/ethical decision. . .it’s a monetary one. That being said, we love us some Discovery Channel and A&E and History Channel. When we come to my parent’s house, Tony is in science teacher heaven.
Yesterday, unbeknowst to me, I was whisked back in time. . .far, far back to my childhood. “Hee Haw” is alive and well on the The Nashville Network. Who knew? I heard Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn and Dolly Partin and Connie Stevins and Hank Williams Jr. I heard and saw skits I’d long since forgotten. . .though some have stayed imbedded in my mind all of these years. I forgot about the jokes in the corn patch. Here’s the one that made me laugh yesterday, ’cause it’s either funny, or I was “virtually inebriated” from all of the fake moonshine they had flowing on the show. . .
Hee Haw Honey: Archie, you’re a handsome man. Aren’t you ever gonna get married?
Archie: No, Lisa. I plan on stayin’ footloose and fiance free.
Oh. My. Goodness.
“Doom, despair, and agony on me. Deep, dark depression, excessive misery. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Doom, despair, and agony on me.” Can I get an amen?
It’s a time warp I’m tellin’ ya.
