    Right on Sandy! This is one of my all-time favorite quotes although I wonder if one has to be of a certain age to “get it”!!

    Who is WIlliam Tell Overture and what is the Lone Ranger? 🙂

    • Di Anne Lewis says:

      Ha!! BTW in the 1950s I never missed an episode of The Lone Ranger mainly because I had a huge – – – I mean HUGE – – – crush on Tonto. I even looked forward to the credits rolling at the end with the actor’s (Jay Silverheels) name!

      • Jesse says:

        Who is Tonto, do I need to Google all this, does Google even go back that far? HEHE =P

      Who are you fooling Jesse!
