Ellie Mae and Uncle Jed
Wasn't that Ellie Mae a cutie pie? I could always relate to her - her innocence, sense of fun and love of animals, but that's as far as the comparison went. I never managed to fill out a pair of jeans - or anything else for that matter quite like she did. And then there's Jethro.
Ya know , this ain't the best picture of Clampett cousin Jethro Bodine. He really was a bit more handsome than this. But, doggone it, he was dumber 'n a box of rocks. Kind a reminds me of this city boy I used date from Kansas City. Really good-lookin', but talkin' to him was like talking to a mule. Come to think of it, I think I had more intelligent feed-back from Grandad's mule than I did that boy. Hmm, and city people think us hicks are dumb. Which brings to mind my favorite sitcom character of all time.... the one..the only...
Granny!! She was sharper 'n a tack, she was feisty and she didn't take no bull-hockey from anyone - let alone those city slickers. And she was smart! I'll save Granny's words of wisdom for another time. I'm still havin' to take it slow and I've worn my self out a bit today. The next few blogs will be about lessons from old sitcoms that can and should be applied in today's society. Til then ((yawn)) I'm gonna hanker down right here on the sofa, got my remote in my hand and ...oh!!! gotta go.... "I Love Luci" is on.
