Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

The Rockford Files:

My grandfather loved The Rockford Files. I watched it a few times but it really wasn't my thing back then. Supposedly, the pic on the right is a shot from one of the final scenes of the show. I guess James Garner hurt his knee in that scene, and his knee injury was what cancelled the show.

Never watched the show as a kid, but loved (and still do) the theme song. All that synthy, '70s keyboard action...

I can't seem to get that song out of my head these days...

Ms Plow said...

That was an awesome song. My mom loved the cop shows and there were lots of 'em.

joe said...

Yeah at the time there was "MacMillan And Wife", "Police Woman", "Starsky And Hutch"....

Ms Plow said...

I think Macmillan and Wife was my favorite out of all those. Wife was so elegant.

Very groovy chick indeed...

I still love the Rockford Files, and will watch it anytime it's on. That and Quincy.

Noe: My grandfather was also a fan of Mutual Of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. I liked that one.

I remember at the end of every episode, Quincy always made these "noble speaches".. not that there's anything wrong with that.

I wonder where all those messages came from on his answering machine at the beginning of every episode when his classified ad didn't have a phone number!

joe said...

Hahaha that totally slipped by me.
And it looks like a modeling agency ad.
Or an escort service...

It's on Hulu and it holds up pretty well.
