I like to accomplish a bunch of things in the mornings, then have lunch and then a "date" with my dog Suzi on the couch. I watch Gunsmoke. I've gotten to love that show. I started out watching the later versions of it, but then they replaced it with 2 half-hour earlier versions, which are even better. I know so much of it is romanticized, but I still like seeing the simple lives.......and it isn't always pretty. The doc doesn't know that much, you can't call anyone when you're in trouble, no vaccinations, no much law around (except Marshall Dillon, who takes care of enough for 10 men....haha).
The black and white doesn't bother me at all. And what a job they had just taking care of their transportation (horses). Never enough food. Did people really drink that much alcohol back then? Where did Kitty, Doc, Matt, Festus and Chester go to the bathroom??
I love the night scenes when all you hear is crickets and frogs. Ahhhhhhhhh......
I just can't imagine what an incredibly hard life that was back then.
