may see me as Crane. Others may say I remind them of Cliff. A few might think George.

I rarely watched the show.
There was little I saw to draw me in, or keep me. I saw enough episodes to recognize certain character traits that remained steady and predictable. Like a collection of cookie cutters used to stamp out wheat flour, rice flour, oatmeal flour, sunflower flour, corn flour, all emerging with the same character shape stamped to a form.

I have never been in a bar. Ever. Anywhere. Don't drink, don't smoke, don't carouse and pick up... no drugs or vices. Really quite dull. Happy as a clam in a wilderness, in a rainforest, or on a high, cliffy mountain. Beaches? Boring. Hotels? Boring. Restaurants? Boring. Television? Boring. Above all else is setting an experience into music that defines it, or expresses it without so much as a solitary word. One moment grandeur, another terror, another blissful, and yet another anxious. Is there any character of Cheers to express that?

Nor can I attach anyone here to the cast, with a few glimpsy exceptions. I see a bit of Carla's feistiness in Poppet. Some of Cliff's hangers in Sprout. Sia might resemble Diane or Rebecca outside, but inside; no. A certain barfly troll reminds me a little of Crapense, if only by name. Glen, Greg, Tom regularly dispenses bar exam failure through constantly rotating aliases.

But darn if CGD isn't its own bar, and we're not its regulars! Only thing we don't have is a spray painted golden cow chip mounted to a plaque with the names of the farmers who flung it farthest in the annual contest, from 1984 to the present.

          He's got significantly less hair nowadays. LOL. I didn't know what to expect. Obviously, I "expected" wrong.
          • I don't see the "Harrelson" look butPH🍻🍻EY, Thu Sep 14 7:06am
            at my age I do have way less fur. Anyway I can see you are kind to play but it's not going to stimulate the high IQs on this BBS😀. I hope your dad is doing better this morning.
