I don’t drive!!

About a year ago, I happened upon a scene I’ll never forget. It was on a rainy Thursday night.. Wait it couldn’t have been a Thursday because that’s poker night. Anyway, it was downtown and… Wait, it couldn’t have been downtown because I don’t drive or take the bus. Actually, I don’t even recall what happened. As you were.

One of my favorite TV shows when I was a young boy (as opposed to an old boy?) was ‘Green Acres’. It was a wacky, funny show that made absolutely no sense. I patterned my life after it. There were so many great characters on it. Mr. Haney, who would try to sell anything, Eb, the knucklehead handyman, even a pig named Arnold.

My favorite though was Mr. Kimball, who was sort of a jack of all trades and you never really knew what he did. He always showed up in some official capacity and would say things like, “Hello Mr. Douglas, it’s a beautiful day today, not a cloud in the sky. Well, I guess there’s a couple. Well, more than just a couple… In fact, it looks like it’s going to rain.” Killed me.

I really love crazy, nonsensical movies and TV shows. Pure, ridiculous entertainment when you just want to laugh without putting forth the effort to think in order to get the jokes. Not very often, but once in a while when I feel overwhelmed by sickness and life’s issues. Feel free to reblog

  1. Oh great! Now I have that damn jingle going through my head …

    ♫ Green acres is the place to be
    Farm livin’ is the life for me
    Land spreadin’ out so far and wide
    Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside

    New York is where I’d rather stay
    I get allergic smelling hay
    I just adore a penthouse view
    Dahling I love you but give me Park Avenue ♫

    Thanks, Jerry!

  2. We never had Green Acres. That said I was a devoted fan of ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’; ‘Bewitched’; ‘Car 54 Where Are You?’; ‘F-Troop’, to name but a few…Heck I even liked ‘My Mother The Car’ Those were fun days, and I learnt a lot about American culture; it’s surprising what you pick up through what makes folk laugh.
