"Excuse me, there's one more thing..."

About the same year Rick and I met each other, there was a series of detective shows that aired every Wednesday. They included Columbo, Hart to Hart and McCloud. Peter Falk played Columbo, the rumpled rain coat detective who always got on everyones nerves with his 'last minute' questions. "Pardon me, there's one last question I have." Gone today but not forgotten.

Dennis Weaver played the charactor of McCould. He was a New Mexico law man moved east to the Big City. Riding his horse through town and causing his boss to scream his trademake line, "McCloud!"

Then there was the loveable couple of Hart to Hart....."together, they spelled MURDER!". Today, all the shows are NCI and other bullshit that doesn't really hit home with the armchair detective at home. Oh well, Peter is gone and I will miss his stupid ways and mannerisms. Peace.

20,000 visits.....almost there....

The word has finally gotten out that The Moonpie Chronicles is here to stay. Rick and I have tried to bring some small piece of humor to everyone who stops by Moonpie. The great thing is that we would and could never be too serious with this blog. Sure, there have been some good times and some real bummers the past few years, but we keep plugging along. Rick has a real life and so do I...perhaps that brings us to the need for Moonpie.

At our recent Moonpie Chronicles World Conference, Rick and I worked for hours trying to come up with fresh ideas, new page layouts and new spiffy T-shirt designs. The fact that almost 20,000 times, someone has checked out the Pie, well, that blows our mind. Thanks again for stopping by and looking around for 3.2 minutes per visit. See you at 30,000 visits....this is fun.
