Old TV Shows


My wife and I love to watch old TV shows. Shows originally broadcast back in the 50s, 60s, and early 70s. I often wonder why we watch these classic shows, and I guess we watch them because we enjoy the nostalgia. 

Whenever I get the chance, we watch Perry Mason before I go to work in the morning. It is nice to watch the shows and, we take turns trying to guess ‘who done it’ before we find out at the end of the show. We enjoy guessing and are happy when we get it right.

The shows play well for another reason. It helps us to remember, no matter how smart we think we are, there are always small items left or something that undoes even the best of plans. Some things get overlooked, and a few ideas go unconsidered. It reminds us to do our best in work and life for the good of everyone. In this time of our lives and at this age, I think that these ideas are something good to consider and remember.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
