Queen - The Invisible man

I'm watching Flash Gordon film clips. Flash Gordon used to be one of my favorite TV shows when I was about 5 years old, and no....I wasn't even born when the first episodes were being made. Flash Gordon was around at least 10 years before I was a twinkle in my parent's eyes.

Flash Gordon's space ship used to look so real to me and now it looks kind of lame, but you have to remember that I was 5 at the time. Sometimes his space ship would bounce haphazardly on the ground of some distant planet and then wobble around a bit as if it was being dangled from an invisible wire, and there were times when I thought I had seen that wire sparkling in the lights when I got older.

In this clip Flash Gordon parachutes from a Rocket ship and right into the door of another space craft. My favorite Flash Gordon episodes were the ones where some bad guy would put him in a tank and the tank would fill up with water, but Flash always managed to get free. I never missed an episode and I guess this was the start of my trekkie years and Star Trek, Lost in Space, Planet of the Apes and anything to do with space travel and aliens.

Sandy, seems like you are making good use of your indoor cold weather time!

I have been online more often with all this cold weather we've had. I'm hoping it'll get above freezing today like they said!

I love Cucoo's little scarf! Cute!

Rachel...Yes, I have been on the computer a bit too much lately but that has given me time to visit some of my bloggy friends too. Although I love snow, I'm ready for some warm sunshine and Spring already. This is the longest that we have had snow on the ground for several years.
I love Cucoo's little scarf too...I made it for him and his little hat too. I don't know why I didn't make them matching since it takes little yarn, but that's all he gets and I'm not making him another set. hahaha
