    i think it ran for a long ass time and all the kids grew up.

    I remember grandpa and grandma (she had a mean face) and at least one of them died.

    The mom, in hindsight, mighta been super pretty. I remember an episode where one of the daughters was afraid of a snake and the mom was cool.

    John Boy became a writer.

    Were there bad guys? I don't really remember who was causing them any problems.

    They all said g'night to each other at the end of every episode because their walls were so fucking thin.

    I remember the Fall Guy. Was the other one a show, or just a nursery rhyme?

    I go to Wal-Mart for my perscription drugs.
    What would cost me $60 at CVS costs me $4 at Wal-Mart.

    I know, F Wal-Mart, but I'm not passing up that kind of deal.

    I've gone to Walmart for my prescriptions as well and this is true. Also, my doctor would send it over while I was still at the office and by the time I got there it would be done already.

    I didnt watch that shit. It was based on the movie, Spencer's Mountain which was great. They failed badly in imitating the movie.

    My parents were big Walton fans. Of course I thought I was too cool for stuff like that and never watched it. However, I used to watch the Christmas movie when it was shown every year. It pretty much served as the pilot for the series. It is called "The Homecoming--A Christmas Story." It hasn't been on in a long time but I ordered it from Amazon. It is well-written and sweet, but has enough dark overtones to keep it from being cloying.

    I did some wiki-ing just now and I was reminded of Ike from the general store (who was cool) and his bitchy wife Corabeth.

    Always wondered why they switched the name to Black Sheep Squadron for syndication.

    They run it on Cozi tv. I think that's the channel.
