These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 65!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting).

Let's do the timewarp again!
I've become obsessed with black and white game shows. Specifically What's My Line, To Tell the Truth, and I've Got a Secret. The episodes I'm seeing every night on the Buzzr channel seem to be from the late 1950s and early 1960s.
I love how elegant the women were, how courtly the men were, how polite everything was. It captures an America on the cusp of change, a cultural tsunami the nation didn't see coming.
My favorite on these shows is John Daly, the host of What's My Line. He had such a good face, warm
I've become such a fan that I researched him and discovered he had an impressive, important career beyond hosting mystery guests like Elizabeth Taylor (then only on husband #2). As a newsman, his was the first voice to let America know about Pearl Harbor! Can you imagine? He also was a staple on TV's Presidential convention coverage.
The result, though, is that I know more about a man who died in 1991 at the venerable age of 77 than I do about people in current entertainment news, like Kendrick Lamar.
