"Hoss?" answered Ben

"Little Joe!"
"Hoss!" replied Joe

"Yea?" sighed Adam 

"My goddam Levis ain't on the line"
"Watch the language" said Ben
"Sorry Pa"
"Don't do it again"

"Hop Sing!" shouted Joe
"He's the cook" muttered Ben

"Wash days blues
At Ponderosa again"

  1. Hi Bee. Love this. So funny. So atmospheric. And so FUN.

    1. Thank you! It was more difficult than I thought it was going to be and did not come out as I had envisaged. But there you go. Glad you liked it!

  2. Thank you for the giggle. fun and real. :-)

  3. And now in a twist of elegant irony , Hop Sing is running the show !

  4. Hey! You've captured my cross. The big white one I wrote about looked just like this, only taller and more imposing.

    I used to love that show. Wash day blues. Good one.

  5. Thank you Yvonne. I didn't realize there's an entire tv channel devoted to Bonanza!

    Yes it is, isn't it? I took that photo in 2005. It's the Gardens at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Lewiston, New York, north of Niagara Falls.

  6. Beautiful picture! I must confess, I've never watched Bonanza.

  7. I haven't watched the show, but reading this, I am sure it must have been fun :-)

  8. Ah the good old days at the Ponderosa...this made me smile...

  9. Tank you everyone. Apologies if I didn't get to you. With one thing and another, last week was a bit tough - and frustrating!

  10. So funny! I haven't thought of Bonanza in a long time. I had a crush on Little Joe : )
    Your header photo is amazing!

    1. I had a crush on Adam! He was so ''masculine"!!!.

      The header is rather nice, isn't it? I had forgotten that I had it until going through photos I took in 2005 whilst in Rochester. I have some really nice ones of that trip especially of parts of the Shrine, inside and out.
