The famous Maynard G. Krebs line from old b&w tv, “The Dobie Gillis Show.” Yes, I’m reaching waaaay back. Hey. I remember it from the re runs smiling innocently. Most of you will be WAY too young to remember that old show, or not have been living in the US during the stone-age, but as soon as I saw this shot, I said that line to myself. Then it took a while to figure out where I’d heard it from … and … why it’s been a part of my vocabulary all these years!!!! I’m rather proud of myself that I actually did … finally … remember!!
