Thank you Peggy, Clarence and Michael! I hope you realize the positive impact you've had on an entire generation! My generation!
They care for each other and they take care of each other. Anyone who watched this show in the 70's will still love watching them now. I bought the first two season, can't wait for the other three seasons. Please bring them out soon.
