Hey Ollie, Things in this section of Kelsey's wooods have been pretty busy. Middle school track season has started, my son is during 16 and just shipped my daughter out to San Fransico for spring break to meet a friend. I started a part time job working at Walmart. Why? Got a son turning 16 and a daughter who is in everything. One of these days there will come a time when I can sit on the front porch and rock and say "Well, what's your hurry?" But not today.

Hey Spooky.

I haven't heard from Momma Jeannie since right after her father died in January. I've written her and plan to call her for her birthday one day next week ( a belated birthday call ). I'm praying everything is okay. Hi Lillian, Emma.

hey OTCB robert is doing really great. learning to talk quite a bit. it's so funny. how goes thing w/you?

i don't know if you guys have seen this show or not: mad tv. it comes on @11 pm on saturdays on fox. anyway. they did a skit where hannibal lecter came to mayberry. quite amusing, if not somewhat disturbing.

Hey, y'all! Hope everyone's enjoying a fine weekend. I saw that Mad TV episode last night, ollie! I was sitting there wondering how many other porch folk were tuned in. Aside from being gross, it had its funny moments. The guy who did Barn had me rolling!!! He had that voice down pat! ~Dež~>/FONT>

March 25, 2001, 12:44 pm Msg #1982
yeah, the impersonations were pretty good. ange's impersonator was ok: his voice was too high. the costumes were hilarious tho. yeah it was somewhat gross, eh? but funny.


March 25, 2001, 8:12 pm Msg #1983
Very gross, I thought the guy who did Barney was good too, and the guy who did Gomer (when I'd risk one eye and watch it) and Aunt Bee won't too bad. But way too gross. I don't know, overall I didn't like it. The guy who protrayed Andy didn't remind me of Andy aTALL. Hope everyone had a good Sunday. Miss Ellie

March 26, 2001, 12:20 am Msg #1984
Yep, definitely gross. REAL gross, in fact. I'd like to have seen a "nicer" (lol!) version done by the same cast. The guy who did Andy didn't have the voice down, but the eyebrow thing was great! Oh, and the mouth thing... too funny. However, the guy who did Barney just had that voice down perfect! I still crack up when I think about it! ~Dež~

I saw that MadTV skit myself. I agree with everyone that it was gross, but I think they did the characters pretty well. Hey to Ollie, Dež, Miss Ellie, Lillian, Emma, Spooky, and anyone else I missed. Hope you all have a great week.

Bess Myerson was a beautiful, elegant, contraversal, bright woman who was often seen on the panel of I've Got a Secret, or Candid Camera, and other games shows of that era. She was Miss America in 1945. She was heard as a caller on 'Frazier' a few years ago.

And, it's because of Bess that your milk carton has a freshness date on it.
