    Did Jed Clampett represent the first television urban survivalist? Sure he had millions of FRNs, but he didn't count on them. He maintained the hunt and continued to provide for the basic self-sufficient needs of his family.

    I was always amused by their "ricochet" shooting practice. I am always trying to bounce bullets into targets. Not a science, but it can be done.

    Well, the Cement Pond would last a family a good time thru The Troubles . . .

    I'm betting Jethro could make that old truck run on bio-diesel or corn squeezings, if'n he was of a mind to. [winkthumb]

    I was always surprised that Ellimae didn't whip Jethro for hunting wild critters when she was always turnin' em into pets. Sure miss the old shows like that. To the good ole days [beer]

    The Geico commerical had me riveted until it showed it was a commercial for Geico! I about fell over laughing! I usually ignore commercials. It hooked hubby too and he watched it intensely. They did an excellent job!
