    I have no idea where that quote is from, but it is in my head. I could probably search for it, but I'm kinda loopy. It's 3:00 am and I really need to get some good rest for a hard day of eating!!

    So, goodnight (or good morning).

    The Waltons, a popular TV show from the 70's and 80's. The original movie, upon which the series was based, was incredibly good.

    The Waltons - They all say good night to each other at the end of the show. It was a big family. You're showing your youth, Nifty!

    I remember a night about 3 years ago when I bought my block of land up in the country.. Just me and my ( then ) 12 year old daughter sleeping in a 30 x 18 shed. Me one end..and her the other in our own beds but talking to each other as we drifted off to sleep.. I called out..." Night John Boy" I didnt expect a reply so nearly fell out of bed when I heard back... "Night Mary Lou" I dont remeber the names of any of the children except John. Does anyone know if one of the children was really Mary Lou?? It turns out a few weeks before my daughter had watched a single old episode of the show.

    I did really enjoy watching that show. [​IMG] It would be a huge culture shock for kids these days to be watching it.
