    When you wake up like me this morning with the theme song from the Wyatt Earp tv show stuck in your head.
    My three favorite things are the Oxford comma, irony, and missed opportunities

    The problem with humanity is: we have paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and God-like technology

    lol. "Long live his fame and long live his glory and long may his story be told".
    Marty Robbins had a LP with the Bonanza theme on it but he added words. "Hello Friends, come on in, the gates are open wide.........."
    Then also "Cheyenne". "Like the restless winds of the plain......"
    And "Never underestimate a 'Sugarfoot'". I can sing these to anyone that wants to hear them

    And don't forget Johny Yuma was a rebel, he roamed through the west.

    Or Back when the west was very young, There was a man named Masterson, he wore a cane and derby hat…

    Or Whistle me up a memory, whistle me back where I want to be…

    Rollin' rollin' rollin', Though the streams are swollen, keep them doggies rollin'…

    There sure were a lot of western themed programs back then.

    Even more modern ones like Seventy Seven Sunset Strip > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnIjm4RHQw4

    How about remembering when you used one of these:

    Anyone still use them?

    I am so old I remember when Michael Jackson was black. Kids don't get that one anymore. They ask was he really black at one time?
    I am so old I remember the corona scare of 2020. You asked a girl out to see your tp collection back then. Movie theaters were closed so that was all there was to do. We looked at tp and my water bottle collection. The smart kids also had bleach and hand sanitizer to impress their girls with.

    I have one just like that, it's aluminum that was originally yellow on the outside, it's our camping coffee pot although we haven't used it for a few years. Must be 40 to 50 years old.

    We have one of those. Plus an Italian version to make expresso, similar in principle but a different design with a pressure chamber at the bottom which forces the boiling water up through the grounds from below. Ours is small enough to make one double.

    When you wake up and realize 40 years ago was 1980 and need to add another 20 years to “old” things and times.
