Modern Day Television

DirecTV has now lost CBS, which leaves them with very little for viewers to watch. I was channel surfing tonight and went through 2 or 3 hundred channels selling junk. I ended up watching Perry Mason. After watching it for awhile I realized TV has made a lot of changes since Perry Mason was on prime time television.

In the episode I was watching Perry Mason was looking in a suspects car. The suspect walked up and asked Perry Mason, “what in the devil are you doing?” I got to thinking 20 years later the fellow would have walked up and said, “what in the hell are you looking for?” After another 20 years, the suspect would have said,” what in the F are you doing in my car?” Today, the suspect would have shouted “YOU M/F er,  what are you doing looking in my G/D car?

I believe TV has taken a few turns down the wrong road.

The Estensen family Reunion

As a youngster my grandparents Andrew and Minnie Olson attended the Estensen family reunion as often as there was one held in the community. I came across a newspaper clipping from a reunion that was at Lake Campbell near Brookings SD, decided to share this with my blogging friends. I’m sure there are many names for everyone to remember. I recall attending with my grandparents, even as a youngster it was a fun event. My wife and I attended our last Estenson reunion it Renner South Dakota in the early 1970s.



Family reunion were annual events at one time, or as close to annual as you could get. Reunions seem to be out of style in many families today. My wife came from a large family in Michigan and she loved to return to the family reunions in July as often as we could. I realized those reunions were very important to her so we attended often, even though it was a long drive. This year she didn’t want to wait until July so she went to the reunion in April, not to Michigan but that Huge Glorious Reunion where the streets are paved with gold. There is an eternal reunion with friends and family waiting, that is truly out of this world.

Trip of a Lifetime

Rose Marie’s Brother David Bowers took us on a trip to Hawaii in 1980. We stayed out at Makaha in a two bedroom condo for two weeks, rented a car and saw everything there was to see on the main island. It was a super fantabulous trip for sure. David’s wife Renee, their daughter Renee Junior and David’s father met us when we got off the plane at Honolulu. There was a swimming pool right outside of our bedroom window. We took in the usual Luau, ate on the Oceana, went on a disco Cruise, visited Brigham Young University, pineapple and Sugar plantations, Sea World the zoo, Wiamea Falls. The huge waves on the North Shore, the Pearl Harbor Memorial, the whole ball of Wax.

Speed Talkers

The world is going to hell in a hand basket! Speed talking should not get my hackles up, make me want to throw something at the TV set. Listening to talk on a soap opera you can understand, every word of it. That is because they are expounding on the sound of each word, so you hear and see their great acting ability. The love scene language may not be all understandable, as the scene reaches a crescendo with drums, heavy breathing, and music.

If you watch the news or hear a commercial. The speech is so rapid you are lucky to understand every tenth word. It resembles automatic weapons fire. You have no idea what the supersonic motor mouths are talking about, as they fill your brain with verbal bullets. They make an auctioneer sound like a slow talker with a lisp. The networks evidently pay by the word or it cost megabucks per second to use that precious airtime. The speed talkers want to get their money’s worth, that is more than evident.

A faithful deserving public should get together and boycott all the networks using speed talkers.
