Every Thursday, Dayle, in Texas, hosts Simple Pleasures at her blog, A Collection of This and That.
It is a series of posts that was created by Dayle to remind people "to stop, to look, to listen, to slow down and pay closer attention to the simple things in life."
Here's my simple pleasure for this week:
Call it corny or call it lame, this week's simple pleasure, for real, is watching re-runs of The Waltons on the Hallmark Channel.
The colorful Baldwin sisters Little brother, Jim Bob
Cora Beth Godsey, Ike's wife
Ike Godsey, general store proprietor
The show has an entire host of great characters who can make a viewer laugh, cry, and sometimes do both in one show. For instance, who could forget the Waltons cousin, Cora Beth, and the colorful character, Ike Godsey, (he runs the general store) and the totally zany yet charming spinster Baldwin sisters, Mamie and Emily?
Grandpa Zeb is said to have a "gruff exterior and a soft heart." He plays an endearing part as well as his wife of more than 50 years, Esther.
The Waltons is a true simple pleasure for me. Forget the movies, forget going out to dinner, forget going shopping, if the Waltons are on the Hallmark station, I'm there!
