    my mother was a big fan of I love lucy when I was little, so I have fond memories of it.

    I live not far away from Jamestown, where lucy was born. they have a lucy festival every year and a museum in her honor (also an additional comedy museum). maybe someday i'll get to them.

    alright tailor---it took me hours to create, after much research, having to resort to high end online tournament making software, we have a 32 team bracket with three preliminary pigs tails!

    for some brevity sake I had to leave out allllll sorts of goodies. I did make an effort to have a relatively even distribution of shows from each decade, 50s-80s, and to have each decade face each other a relatively equal amount of times.

    oh boy! looking forward to it!

    in the first prelim, bonanza vs gunsmoke.

    Lol !!!... sounds like March Madness in May... or as Father Mulcahy of M.A.S.H. might say: Bracketology!, Bracketology!

    I've watched a few episodes of Gunsmoke recently with my wife at her sister's house (they have Direct TV). I really prefer Matt Dillon's character over ___ Cartright... here's a bio of James Arness: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Arness. An aside: As "the Thing" he brought more depth to life than that of the character in The Addams' Family... (not referring to Lurch).

    Hogan's Heroes or M.A.S.H. ?

    good memory tailor---jocularity! jocularity!

    hard to beat the bonanza theme music though. how did the gunsmoke episodes hold up after so many years?

    ah---im sorry, being the tournament administrator im not allowed to answer that for fear of swaying the outcome! although ironically I left Hogan's heroes out. I say that because im watching and really enjoying that very show these days. I should start over and make a 64 team bracket!

    another pig tail:

    I dream of Jeannie vs bewitched.

    Gunsmoke held up very well for me.

    I dream of Jeannie

    Hmmm... guess I'll stay out of the realm of brackets and await enlightenment.

    Butterflies or Lady Bugs ?

    that's good to hear. i still love watching the old shows from childhood days.

    difficult to pass on Jeannie given her outfit!

    ah that's a fun one---lady bugs are cute and adorable and butterflies are beautiful and delightful. i'll go with the latter by virtue of their visibility.

    the last pig tail:

    the cosby show vs all in the family.

    I haven't seen much of either; I liked the edginess of all in the family - so go with it.

    Baby ducks or baby bunnies ?

    i suspect that might happen a few times at least tailor---"huh, I never even heard of that show!"

    my dad used to watch all in the family when I was a kid.

    oh that's a toughie, that's gotta be the wildlife version of like saying kittens or puppies?

    lemme go with ducks because I have a pond in front of my house. I get a mr and mrs goose family every year and its one of my favorite things in the world.

    right back into the fray for the first pigtail winner

    I love lucy vs gunsmoke.

    interestingly tailor---I write inmates, and in the letter I just read a couple days ago the writer told me she had just recently watched a gunsmoke episode and that it was one of her favorite shows.

    We had a duck in one of our ponds this year... then duck with eggs in the brush... then duck and ducklings swimming... then gone? Canada Geese are ubiquitous here... nearly every day I hear them

    Gunsmoke

    Best Foods/Hellman's or Miracle whip ?

    that's pretty neat tailor. I get ducks here too and I might have mentioned this before, only once in all the years since ive been here have they ever had babies. I wonder if maybe they don't like to do that with a goose family around.

    when I was a kid it would definitely have been miracle whip, but aging has grown mayonnaise on me. its more or less a toss-up but today, slight edge towards miracle whip.

    I have come bottles of a ketchup/mayo combination that are pretty good on French fries.

    this one might be easy---leave it to beaver vs M*A*S*H.

    re: ketchup/mayo combination has oft been a dressing on a green salad. I have never developed a liking for Miracle Whip... perhaps its magic eluded me.

    Yeah, M*A*S*H (family connection as I have mentioned before) though LITB was a staple growing up. I have a friend who followed Tony Dow... a So. Cal. connection I believe.

    my grandfather was one of those ketchup on scrambled eggs guys.

    golly gee beave!

    saved this for you, thought youd get a kick out of it:

    I don't technically buy into the zodiac, but its fun reading. im an "air" sign. all else being equal and I have to chose a date between water and fire, I say water.

    I may have tried catsup on eggs as a child... I believe my Grandfather did... but then he liked bacon grease with catsup too dabbed with white bread.

    Enjoyed the short... mine must have been the "Mountaineer" - didn't realize how large they came.

    Sanford and Son was a kick. Don't remember any FKB's episodes, though I remember watching it as a youth... going with S&S

    Sundaes or Shakes ?

    I suspect the white bread bacon grease meal was a culinary thing of the generation that preceded us.

    I used to have a mountaineer, now I appear to have the tinker. I know, its crazy isn't it?

    I always liked when fred feigned having a heart attack and told his deceased wife he was coming to join her!

    hmm, another toughie---the major upside of sundaes are all the fixin's, but lots of times I like drinking things as opposed to eating, and so small lean towards the shake. my vegetarianism extends somewhat into dairy products so when I have choices between all those things, I go with slushes instead.

    Ah, I've gone to almond milk - much less dairy now in my diet (such as it is). Almond milk's shelf life is longer than moo too

    A nod to Danny Thomas here

    Spring Break or Halloween ?

    I love almond milk. mayyyyybe the next time im at aldi i'll get some.

    that's a fun one---I liked spring break, even though I loved college, for the sake of having a week off. traveling to warmer weather was a part of it, but childhood memories of Halloween are hard to beat. plus October is probably my favorite month of the year.

    I think im going to have to insert Hogan's heroes into a later round.

    the burns and allen show vs hill st blues.
