#SoCS ~ 3/4/23

Howdee folks! Misspelling intended. Time once again for #SoCS where the lovely Linda writes & I copy paste: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wild animal.” Choose a wild animal (or many wild animals) and use it any way you’d like in your post. Enjoy! HERE are the rules & ping back. I think it might just get all Marlin Perkins Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom around here. LOL. I did not research or think about it but real quick here is a wiki link for the deets aka the 411, intel, info about the TV show.

As a family, Sunday evening TV viewing was most enjoyable. We’d watch Hee-Haw, The Wonderful World of Disney, & you guessed it Wild Kingdom. I think Jacque Cousteau may have been on Sundays too but my memory fades. I just remember time we spent together, watching & snacking because we rarely ate supper on Sundays. Instead lunch after Mass was enough to fill us up. But a nibble in the evening never hurt anyone. We’d take vanilla ice cream, sprinkle & mixed in Nestle’s Quik. Boy that was good eating. And yeah one might say TV is bad for you blah, blah, blah but it was never about the show, The bond was in the communal watching & discussing of said shows. Also you can give me some Barnaby Jones, Quincy, or Mannix to watch again anyday. Haha!

I love my family. Missing several who are gone too soon. I get nostalgic & sentimental these days. I yearn for simpler time. Yet I’m forever grateful.

As always, more to come.
