Eye Opening Tuesday

Eye Opener Number 1:
1pm, my crowded office, Marketing team meeting. With assistant, 2 designers, outgoing marketing coordinator and incoming marketing coordinator present, I make a reference to The Waltons. First one, then another - eventually all of them - admit they've never, ever seen The Waltons. One asks "Wasn't it like Little House on the Prairie?" I am a fossil.

Eye Opener Number 2:
3pm, the cell phone, Kelsey on the other end. She announces "This Suburban is the bomb!" Why? "Because I'm on my way home from Costco where I dropped $200 on groceries and it barely made a dent in the space in the back of the truck."

Ok try to follow me..

Living in Alaska, we had and stil do a 1973 Explorer Motor Home. We called it The Fossil. It was a great motorhome and many fond memories.

As for The bomb, my heart begins to race when I think of how much big game could fit in it AND gear!!

Be encouraged Randy. I, unlike most people of my age, grew up watching the Waltons...much to my parents coercion. So no worries, you are not a fossil.
