Back in the day. We only had black and white television.I didn’t think about it much until Sheriff John would bring out his DiMaggio carrots in full black and whiteness. Sheriff John would cheerfully tell us that these orange beauties were so good for us because of the green tops. I knew what I was looking at was wrong. But of the children shows of my day, this show was one of my favorites. I can still sing all the words to his Happy Birthday song. I’m dedicating this song to Linda G. Hill whose birthday was yesterday.  And to my friend, Michele whose birthday is Friday. And I’m glad this is a tribute to a man who was part of the lives of Southern California kids in the 50s and 60s.

About the time of the Moon Landing July 16, 1969, we got out first colour TV.

For all the grey of the moon, that flag was in full colour. I could never go back. To this day I HATE the first part of  Wizard of Oz. I KNOW it represents the dullness of life prior to Dorothy’s adventure to the Emerald City.  Many people love the quaintness of noir or black and white movies but I’ll just stay home and read a book, thank you. B&W is BORING!

I’m so glad to live my life in Living Colour!

 

Of course, back then most of the shows were still about men. We’ve come a little way, baby.

 

Just Jot it January is Linda’a gift to us.

“Supernatural Snark” brought us the prompt: Colour. Here’s her link:  https://supernaturalsnark.wordpress.com/

 


I thought I’d take the liberty of not writing a long blog today. I spent the day frogging and restarting the knitted hat a started a couple days ago. It seems I used too small a crochet hook for the chain to start the cast on for the hat, and too large needles. So I used a large hook and smaller needles this time. I’ve been so busy on that that I didn’t even realize we had gone into tomorrow! So there was Just a Jot. Thank you, Linda G. Hill for helping me do daily writing even if it is just a jot.

Thank you, Jill.  Check out her blog, “Capt Jills Journeys”  Here’s her link:  https://captjillsjourneys.wordpress.com/
