The Big Valley 24 April 2014


There are shows I watched as a kid that I could live in: Little House on the Prairie, Bonanza and The Big Valley. I’d love to see these shows up and in production again, right alongside Firefly. Then there’d be something worth watching on TV. I’d ride along with Little Joe and Hoss as they checked cattle in the high mountain pastures and I’d really appreciate the meal waiting back at the ranch. I’d ride into town with Heath and Jared and have my pistol on my belt too! I wouldn’t mind walking behind the horse or mule to help Pa plant the crops, teaching in the one room schoolhouse or helping Ma in the garden. If these three scenes took place on different planets, I’d love the ride! I heard on the news today that people who drink their coffee black, enjoy a simple life and are straightforward in the way they live. I think that is me–at least I know I like simple in life, down-to-earth and yet full of a slew of stars and planets and celestial bodies. Admittedly, I do add a bit of sugar now.
