Green Acres is the place to be
Standing upon Steptoe Butte, in heart of the Palouse region of Eastern Washington, my thoughts wandered back to my childhood. No, I didn’t grow up on a farm nor did I visit one. I was a New Yorker through and through. Manhattan was more my style. What I was pondering were all those TV reruns from the 1960s and early 1970s, on a black and white TV, with fun theme songs.
Green Acres is the place to be.
Farm livin’ is the life for me.
Land spreadin’ out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.
If you don’t know or remember the Green Acres TV show, check out the theme song here.
Remember, it’s all about the light – with a little help from Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor.
I loved that show, along with Petticoat Junction!
Never was a fan of Petticoat, but I did watch a bit of Green Acres. How can you not like Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor?
