I’ve got big news today, classic TV fans. The “Sergeant Preston of the Yukon” DVDs I ordered from Amazon finally arrived! IN A REAL COLLECTOR’S TIN! Holy crap, this thing is SO DAMN COOL. There are two boxed DVDs inside with five half-hour episodes on each. I thought I’d post a photo in the Howdygram but the flash was creating too much glare because the collector’s tin is actually made of GENUINE METAL — you know, as in very shiny — so I’ll just include a regular picture of Sergeant Preston instead. In case you have no idea what I’m talking about here, “Sergeant Preston of the Yukon” was a half-hour TV series that ran from 1955 to 1958. Was he adorable, or what? Thank you.
It’s almost 9 p.m. and I haven’t had dinner yet so I’d better type faster and post this crap before I starve to death.
In my earlier post today I mentioned it was snowing in Dallas. Even though our total accumulation was less than an inch (technically, almost NOTHING) take a look at what happened to our rush hour traffic:
Hey. Check out what I just bought at Costco.com. I ordered a huge bottle of Vitamin D softgels because I’m old, anemic and decrepit, and at the last minute I decided to throw in a couple of nice new dress shirts for Sam. Costco’s dress shirts are SWELL, people. Only $17.99 in a million different sizes and they’re very well made. (Don’t tell Sam, okay? I want to surprise him.)
