The Waltons TV Show at 50yrs

I travel to or near Charlottesville often and every time I think about the show.

Now 71 and starring as lawyer Atticus Finch in a touring production of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Thomas said he still hears fans call “Good night, John-Boy!” after each performance.

What? Scooby is older than the Waltons? That’s not something I ever even thought was possible.

I loved that show, not least because being a teenager who wanted to be a writer was 1) respected and 2) validated by the fact the ‘writer’ was the adult narrator ostensibly reading from his own book.

Remember when John Boy got caught up in the Hindenburg disaster? Best episode ever.

Didn’t really get into The Waltons but I’m still hooked on Little House On The Prairie.

Go figure.
