TV Meme

Recently, I've been alternating between "serious" posts about my gay drama (right at this second, everything is  drama-free and fairly happy) and "sexy" posts, about my lecherous behaviour, ogling hot guys. This post involves neither category.  (oh, all right ... there is a <i>bit</> of ogling in here as well!!)  this post   This a trip down memory lane, courtesy of Cubby at Patently Queer.  Thanks, Cubby was fun!

I've never been much of a TV watcher. Never having lived in a house with cable or satellite TV,  there were usually only 2 or 3 channels from which to choose.  As a kid, I spent most of my time reading books or (with my brothers, cousins and friends) doing outdoor sports and doing things in the wilderness.  In fact, I didn't even own a TV when I first lived on my own from the age of 22 to 28.

  1. Excellent! that was fun. I had forgotten about Gary Sandy of WKRP. WUFF!

  2. Great meme Buddy. I really like Bo Duke too. I had many thoughts of riding around in the General Lee with him, hiding from the police behind some bushes in total silence, hearing only his breath and feeling his body heat... oh man!
