I had one neighbor make a laughing but yet sly little crack at my Christmas lights still up around the 3rd week in January, I had to gently remind him, that he ought to be good to me if he wants any of his architectural applications approved in the future (I'm on my HOA board) After that, I never heard another word about it !...lol
Good for you to remind them who you are! =)

To my American friends, it will be airing this year in the States. You won't be able to view it online yet.

Sorry, for forgetting. It's been a hectic year for me.

Hope everyone is well.

I do remember you telling us about this. Thanks for the link!

So good to hear from you!

I just "raced" through the post tonight, I'm a bit tired. I feel like I am coming down with a cold. Hopefully a little medicine, some vitamins and a good nights sleep will help me to feel well in the morning!

Sweet dreams everyone!

We use to be able to watch them without cable, 38 also use to carry all the road games for the Red Sox & Bruins. We watched them with just an antenna all the way out here in Western Mass. I miss TV stations like that now, it's always the same things on now.
I've heard a lot about Channel 38 from Mr., and the vintage movies they used to run.

Yep, they're good, but you have to pay attention while you watch. The first one in the series has a tough plot to follow! We haven't seen them all yet, but in our opinion, anything with Lloyd Nolan in it is worth watching. We also recommend the Boston Blackie series with Chester Morris, and the Falcon mysteries.
