Not Exactly New News

It’s not polite to speak ill of the departed. Natalie Wood’s death was controversial at that time.

The issue of whether or not it was accidental is not, new news.

Why it is being brought up now has me baffled.

On another subject, the three major television networks, failing to find any new programming ideas, are rebooting old series.

Rosanne, will come back on ABC. CBS brought back Hawaii 5-O, MacGyver; will bring back Cagney and Lacey, and Magnum PI.

Will they be successful?  Hawaii 5-O and MacGyver seem to be doing well.  I miss the scowling characterization portrayed by Jack Lord in the original series.

What other expended TV series could be reincarnated?  …Leave It To Beaver, Bewitched, Barnaby Jones, Moonlighting?

I happened to like Moonlighting–the theme song was great, the tension between Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard made the show.  I didn’t care for the way Seinfeld ended, either.

A “For Sale” ad posted on the wall near the entrance of a local supermarket–except it wasn’t real.  It was in my dream early this morning.

The star of my dream was Emily, a character in Haverty’s furniture commercials.  Emily and Ned are newlyweds.  Somehow, they miraculously raised a family in a very short time frame.

My conversation with Emily started this way.  “The Green Mountains–are you familiar with them?”

“No–I’ve never heard of the Green Mountains,”  Emily answered.

“They’re in Vermont, I replied–dropping a hint.  “Sorry, doesn’t ring a bell.”

“Haven’t you heard of Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys during the Revolutionary War?” I asked–getting frustrated.

Emily didn’t have an answer–appeared bored with my line of questioning.

“You surely have heard of Ethan Allen furniture–haven’t you?”

“Well–yes I have,”  Emily answered.  Ned, who had been quiet up to this point–nodded in agreement.

“It’s named after the same guy,”  I answered–breathed a sigh of relief.

Back to the real question–“Why are you selling your blog?”  I asked, somewhat puzzled.

“Ok–I just don’t need it anymore.  It’s cluttering up the house.  I’m much too busy these days,” Emily answered.

I liked Emily.  Once she made up her mind–that was the way things were going to be.

What in the world was “Smile School?”  It was too late to ask.
