Hello!

Post by loveadam » Sun Apr 25, 2010 9:26 pm

I love this site and appreciate all of your comments.

My addiction to Bonanza just returned in the last few weeks since I noticed it on TVLand and got caught up in it. One thing led to another and now I need a 12-step program to stop thinking about Adam.

I loved Bonanza when I was a little girl in the 70s. My favorite uncle lived with us for a while and he watched Bonanza every afternoon. I think I first thought it was boring but it was the horses that won me over. I so longed to ride a horse everywhere I went. This was during the oil crisis in the 70s (you may remember long gas lines, eventually gasahol etc.) and I literally prayed that we would just go back to using horses for transportation. I could imagine cars being retrofitted to be pulled by horses easily. I know this sounds ludicrous now but I was sure that would solve the world's oil crisis at the time.

Anyway, I used to dream of being on the show as sort of the little sister to the boys.
But eventually Adam entranced me so i decided I would marry him when I was old enough. I didn't care about the age difference.

Somehow my affections migrated to Little Joe. I think this must have been because the only episodes being shown were after Adam.

Now almost 30 years since my infatuations. I am again mesmerized by Adam. I don't think i would be able to breath if I was ever in the same room with him.

Again, I need a 12-step program to getover this fixation. I love the quote from a poster that goes somethinglike "The 24-hour a day observation of Adam Cartwright is not a recognized profession----yet!

That pretty much sums me up right now.

Thanks so much,

MM

:welcome to Boomers loveadam. I also remember the long gas lines in the 70's. I had just gotten my drivers licence after "drivers ed", the school giving us drivers education classes. I loved your idea about going back to horses! That sure would have fixed the problem. :laughing

We're glad to have you here with us! :thumbup
