I thought it was strange that 3 grown men would live with their father. No chicks were ever out to the ranch. Hown many different dishes could Hop Sing really make?

I used to wonder why these men always obeyed Daddy too. But I remember plenty of female guests and "ladies in distress" that needed saving.
I did love this actor. Rest in Peace.

What it didn't show was the boys sneaking off to Virginia City after dark to visit the ladies upstairs in the saloon and putting the bill on Ben's tab. Remember, they were a wealthy family and didn't want women coming in and changing the decor of the Ponderosa, think about it, this was a man's ranch, they didn't want to hear a squeaky little voice beaming out, "Will you boys take your boots off before coming in here", nuff said!

I loved them all......

Me too. Amanda Blake's face just flashed through my mind.(Miss Kitty on Gunsmoke)
Though now that I've lived this life a while (or many lives as Cats are apt to do), I realize most men LOVE to have a woman in the home, making it a home.
My husband, who is 4 years younger than I am loves that I retired and have his dinner ready for him every night. He's as crazy as I am about our fur family so he also loves knowing they have me for company.(Back when I worked, he says we didn't see each other enough because I so often worked late).

Oh Yes, Miss Kitty..... Those were the days when men were men and woman were thankful for it! I always had a heart flutter when Miss Kitty graced the screen and longed for the chance to spend a night at the Long Branch at the table with her (maybe go upstairs too Shhhh). The for a change of pace Iwould admire Barbie Stanwyck in the Big Valley, she was a little to forceful for me but I think I'd like the spankings, know what I mean ;-).

Yes, I liked Barbara Stanwyck. But Lana Turner, I think, was the most elegant of all.
And don't forget Linda Evans In The Big Valley. I think she's a cat too.. has lived many lives! >:o)
Dynasty, of course and even as Yanni's girl.
So who is your favorite celebrity today?
Male?
Female?

Well, that's a tough question as I like quite a few, it's not like years ago when Stars were Stars, today they seem to come and go.
