    I love Magnum, But probably not in the same way you do. ;)

    He is a good detective but also light-hearted at times. Not overly cynical like some. But I don't mind the cynical at ti!es. I love the Rockford Files!

    I loved Magnum P.I. First & foremost for the mysteries & cast, scenery, etc. is just an added bonus that Tom Selleck is easy on the eyes ;)

    Rockford Files was awesome! That was my mom's favorite, she also adored James Garner.

    Hallmark movies and mysteries is my favorite channel, I love watching all the old mystery shows they run!!
    And I love the new Mystery series they have been putting out as well!

    I was lucky enough to get THREE Marx Carry-All Action playsets over several years as a kid. They were my big Sears Wishbook items. They were sort of tin metal suitcases with lithographs on outside and inside. You opened them and they became a playset environment. They contained plastic people, equipment, etc. I had Fort Apache, Cape Canaveral, & Fighting Knights. The latter two were my favorites. The Fighting Knights one had castle parts that snapped onto the case thereby turning it into a castle. Good times. I also had Major Matt Mason stuff as I was fascinated by anything space related. Then I found out that my great-aunt worked for NASA. Nerd-heaven!

    Do you watch Blue Bloods?

    I met Jamess Garner. He's from Norman, OK, which is right by my hometown. Us Oklahoma Cherokees have to stick together. ;)

    Seemed to be. I have my picture with him. Caden was just a baby and Garner played with him for a month, trying to take his pacifier. :)

    One of my fond memories when I was a tot was sitting down with the Christmas catalog and going through the toy section, writing down exactly what I wanted and what page it was on! For years I asked for one of those ballerina dolls that danced when you held her tiara, but Santa never brought her ...

    I too enjoyed looking through the catalog and making a list.

    I'm sorry Santa didn't come through. I'm sure he had a good reason...
