    We still do that around here sometimes 🙂 I grew up in the shadow of “Walton’s Mountain” – very close to where they actually lived and my childhood was very similar in a 1970’s kind of way.

    I remember watching The Waltons with my mother. For years at camp we’d go to bed by saying Goodnight John-Boy.


    He was a lot of fun.


    You are showing your age. 😉

    Exidor was a wonderful supporting character! The first M&M show he appeared on would probably make my top ten list of funniest sitcom episodes.

    Goodnight Yancy!

    Goodnight John-Boy.
