Caper Journal took "The Wayback Machine," a new poem of mine. I've been playing footsie with them for a while. Also keep coming close with Leveler--they actually took a poem, but it was a simultaneous, so I withdrew it and haven't been able to hit again.

Now this one really zings, really hauls my butt back. I am a bit older than you, but had that same
imagination when it came to the early TV heroes, but do not forget the Cisco Kid, and the Disney Zorro, and John Payne in the Restless Gun, Steve McQueen in WANTED, DEAD OR ALIVE, Rory Calhoun in THE TEXAN, Henry Fonda in THE DEPUTY, Richard Boone as Palladin, all those early Matt Dillon B&W episodes, the Hoppy Show, the Gene Autry Show, the Roy Rogers Shows, FLICKA, LASSIE, CAPTAIN GALLANT, Gail Davis in ANNIE OAKLEY, BUFFALO BILL JR.,
WILD BILL HICKOK with Guy Madison and Andy Devine, Robert Culp in TRACKDOWN, Robert Lansing in 12 O'CLOCK HIGH, COMBAT, THE RAT PATROL, MEDIC, DRAGNET, BOSTON BLACKIE, Nick Adams as the laconic diary writing THE REBEL, theme song by Johnny Cash, those early BONANZA's in color when most of us still only had B&W TV's, THE BIG VALLEY, CIMARRON STRIP, LAWMAN, MAVERICK, CHEYENNE, SUGARFOOT, WAGON TRAIN....and on and on; images piled upon images, hours turning into years as we praise
the Wayback Machine.

Is Sugarfoot a real show? I just thought it was a joke from ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. Yeah, I was happy with this one. I'm kind of wondering if I shouldn't have shot a little higher with it, but I often wonder that. Most of the older shows I saw in rerun. I really wanted to work in a Real McCoys reference, but it didn't work.
