One of these days I'll invest in a real set of drawing pencils... not that that will make me any better, but it will help with getting blacker blacks and softer shad...

As for me, I like Steven Segall movies, Arnold Schwarznegger movies and Sylvester Stallone movies. I go in not expecting any Oscar nominations and I am never disappointed. Of course, since my daughter hates Steven Segall, maybe I just watch for the "irritation factor". Anyway, a movie does...

Don't quit now! Although this one is too tough, the concept is good... even if we just get to listen to some really good music.

Hi, Judith.

Ray Romano's TV wife was played by Patricia Heaton.

Tim Allen's TV wife was played by Pat Richardson who happens to be nine days younger than me (although she looks more like nine years younger at least.)

I've checked this thread twice and I can't believe that no one has mentioned Wagon Train! I remember it was one of the Westerns that we regularly watched in our house.
