Good morning everyone. I had a great day yesterday, and slept like a rock for nine hours last night.

This morning, I am feeling great. I just wish I could smell things again.

Secret Asian Man and The Girl With Colitis Goes By.

The best-known version of the Original Secret Agent Man as the theme music for the American showings of Danger Man, a spy show starring one of my favorite performers, Patrick McGoohan.  He went on to create The Prisoner, perhaps the weirdest and most confusing TV show ever.

And the Dali Lama is he one and only Sacred Asian Man.

It takes an iron man to play with a toy iron horse.

McGoohan was the star of two of my most favorite TV shows -- The Avengers, and The Prisoner.  Neither of those are available on my cable system.

Not that I know of.  It seemed to have a mind of its own, and was used to keep the prisoners in line.  It could chase people down no matter where they went or how fast they were going.

Number Six (McGoohan) was a former secret service agent who was imprisoned in the village.

Great (but weird) show!

My post said McGoohan was in the Avengers.  I didn't mean that.  The Avengers, with Macnee, was another of my favorites.  Attributed to happy hour before my post.

McGoohan was also in Secret Agent  Man before the Prisoner.

I finally got it organized

My brother and my best childhood friend Jeff are going to go up to Beast Lake.

When people say don't go back there it is antagonizing and much too tempting.  I finally got my two favorite people on the same page.

First I got to go back up to Wisconsin because my brother-in-law and Judy's sister miss us and she got two side by side Hilton rooms next weekend an hour and a half out.

I got to admit that sounds funner than going to look for Sasquatch.  Nobody else has ever found him and what makes me think we're gonnaLaugh

Well, I can't deny the smile on my face, It's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chasePirate

Actually it sounds like a really bad idea to walk back into that nightmare but it sure is always fun to talk about thoughLaugh

'Danger Man' with McGoohan was a half hour that grew into an hour.  ITV made it, and it was repackaged for the USA with the Bondish "Secret Agent Man" theme song. Roku has it available among its base-level offerings.  The prints and the sound are excellent. Lots of "The Prisoner" foreshadowing.  Long seasons with lots of episodes and actors you'll recognise like Lois Maxwell and Honor Blackman.

A one "L" Lama is a priest.

A two "L" LLama is a beast.

But I don't even want to meet a three "L" Lllama.

 

The sisters used to raise llamas. I put a toy doll on the fence post.

We called it the llama's dolly.
