I vaguely remember Creature Features, wasn't allowed to watch very much daytime TV on the weekends, but it seems like I got to see it sometimes, like on rainy or very cold weekends.

I loved the Creature Features. They were a little corny, so it would never scare me, like Alfred Hitchcock would. My dad and I would always sit and watch all the old westerns together. I still get a kick out of them and it does remind me of times spent with him, as well.

elimar...ME tv is short for Memorable Entertainment tv. It is a free over the air channel where I live, but many cable companies carry it. I am just too cheap to pay for cable, so we depend on our rooftop antenna for our channels. We get about thirty free channels. Most of the programs and movies on ME tv are from the 60's and 70's. It's a hoot!

Oh, I will have to look for it. I usually just keep my HDMI 1 on and that's the satellite. I'll have to see if ME comes up on the over-air stations around here. Thx.

Just thought of that old series The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Not that he was a scary ghost. Kind of made me want a ghost romance too. I was an impressionable kid.

My television romance was Bobby Sherman from "Here Come the Brides". The show was kind of dorky, but he was definitely "eye candy" for twelve year old me. Had his posters hung up all over my room. For my fifteenth birthday, I got to see him in concert. He threw his love beads out into the audience and I was lucky enough to catch them! Hah...I haven't thought of that in years.

Elimar - ME is part of our basic cable package with Frontier (formerly Verizon). We also get the Decades channel too. They ran a marathon of "Gomer Pyle" recently. NativeMainer is correct. They run marathons from time to time. You may be able to catch the Ghost & Mrs. Muir on that station one day. Oh, and I do remember that show. I liked it too. Smile

Hey! Is this thread closed or what? NativeMainer, less drinkin', more thinkin'! Ha-haha!

I stopped by BCO to pay my respects to the memory of Marybe, but since I looked in here, I'll also dredge up a memory. I got a million of 'em.

Saw my little neighbors playing with bubbles the other day. I remember loving that soapy mess when I was a kid too; however, what kind of sadistic toy manufacturer made this bubble pipe pictured? Sure it created a pretty bubble cascade but there is not kid on the planet who did not get a mouth full of soap trying to use it. I bet you can almost taste that liquid soap just looking at this pic. I know I can!

Even tho' I rarely post anymore, I do like to view this thread now and then (because I have so many memories "stored" here..just in case I start to forget them.)

That Barrel-Full-O-Monkeys reminds me of two things. One, that my son had a tie with those red monkeys on it that he wore to h.s. graduation; and two, another set of plastic animals, which were the plastic dogs that came in cereal boxes. These should look familiar to a few of you guys, at least. I was a real good cereal eater way back when, so I had collected about half of the set before that promotion was over sometime in the 60's.

Since I might not think of this for next month (Veteran's Day,) I better post it now while it is on my mind. Anyone else have a bracelet for a Vietnam War POW/MIA? I think I either sent away for one or there may have been a fund drive at school where I got mine. I wore mine for the better part of a year, but then quit wearing it; however staring at it on my arm every day burned the name into my memory. Only recently did I think to browse the internet to find out if my soldier was ever found, if he ever came home. He did, but not alive. Sad.
