Does Anyone Remember.....

Unread post by GoCubsGo »

The NBC Mystery Movie?

My favorite was Banacek.


There's an old Polish proverb that says....
"A truly wise man never plays leapfrog with a unicorn."

"Read the whole library, my son, but the cheese will still smell after four days."

"Twelve good horses and silver candlesticks won't stop the snow from falling in Bialystock."

"It's harder for the spider to catch the fly, than for the fly to catch the horse."

"Only someone with nothing to be sorry about smiles at the rear of an elephant."

"Even though a man anoints himself with fragrant oils, he can still wind up with a broken face."

"When the wolf is chasing your sleigh, toss him a raisin cookie but don't stop to see if he eats it."

"Only the centipede can hear all the footsteps of his uncle."

"If the butterfly has teeth like the tiger, he'd never make it out of the hanger."

"A wolf that takes a peasant to supper probably won't need any breakfast."

"Just because a dress is red satin doesn't mean it comes off easily."

"A wise man never tries to warm himself in front of a painting of a fire".

"Though the hippopotamus has no stinger in his tail, the wise man would rather be sat on by the bee."

"When an owl comes to a mouse picnic, it's not there for the sack races."

"No matter how warm the smile on the face of the sun, the cat still has her kittens under the porch."

"The chicken that clucks the loudest is the one most likely to go to the Steamfitter's Picnic."

"A duck with three wings and a loaf of bread is brother to the turkey."

"Even a thousand szloty note can't tapdance."

"If your socks are not in your shoes, don't look for them in Heaven."

That would be another Billy, Billy Mumy, who went on to Lost in Space and a long career in TV and movies.
You left out his musical career

I didn't forget about Mumy's musical career; I never knew about it. And now that I do know about it, I'd rather forget it.

I absolutely agree, but after reading about it in wiki I had to give it a listen. I managed about 8 or 10 seconds of it before I began to plot my revenge on the person who reminded me of him.


Consider yourself revenged.

Anybody remember the Chevrolet tv ads and theme song? I think that after "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" this was the second song I ever heard.

That's the first high rise auto dealership I've ever seen.

It's been there for decades.

It's a landmark.

How is it you never noticed?

But around 2012 it was taken over by a Nissan dealership.

Figures.
Around here all car dealerships are low slung one story buildings with big paved areas for the cars. I just can't imagine a structure like that being a car dealer unless they have large doors and large elevators to have cars on every floor, and if not, what do they use all that space for?
