This past weekend, while driving to a roping event in Laughlin, NV, Nancy was driving and I was surfing the Sirius radio channels. This caught my attention. "Shot from guns, Quaker puffed wheat and Quaker puffed rice brings you Sargent Preston of the Yukon and his dog King" I recall as a young ignorant farm boy,how and why did they shoot puffed rice and wheat fromn guns. Now...that I am certainly older and supposedly wiser, I still don't know how and why they shoot puffed rice and wheat from guns.
Oh well, to continue...By sending 35 cents and a box top from Quaker puffed rice or Quaker puffed wheat, you can receive a 14 carat gold plated whistle with braided necklace, just like Sargent Preston has. Heck...35 cents wouldn't even pay the postage now. Anyway Sargent Preston and King still have it. In the midst of a blizzard they captured the thief"s holed up in an abandon cabin.
Other episodes where Fibber McGee and Molly, Jack Benny with Frankie Frontain, Bob Hope with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and Dragnet was coming on..and I was going out. You know you are getting old when "Happy Hour" is a nap. Perhaps some of you may relate to that.
