Howdy

Post by wlampkin » Tue Feb 11, 2014 10:06 pm

Just stumbled across Bonanza Boomers today while doing research on the pulp writer William R. Cox. I hadn't realized he also wrote for "Bonanza."

I watched it regularly as a kid: Sunday nights at 8 (we lived in the Central Time zone). Actually, I should say "we" watched it — my parents, brothers and I. It was a family event.

I still have a brown plastic Bonanza wallet — complete with a B&W photo of the Cartwrights on it — that I got as a kid. It's packed away in a closet. I need to dig it out.

Cheers,
Bill
