When I saw the news that James Garner had passed away I had flashbacks to my family room when I was growing up.
I remember every Saturday night getting together with my mom, dad and brother and watching The Rockford Files.”
I couldn’t tell you what episodes I watched, but I remember watching them every week with my family.
I always liked James Garner. I loved him in “Murphy’s Romance” and “The Notebook.”
When I Googled pictures of James Garner, here were some of my favorites.
R.I.P. James Garner, you will be remembered.
Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86.

I’m watched the TV show, “The 80′s: The Decade That Name Us” on the National Geographic Channel.
As I was watching it, they started talking about Calvin Klien and his underwear.
Then this picture popped up on my TV screen.
My jaw dropped down on my desk.
Tom Hintnaus is also known as the first model in the underwear advertising campaign of designer Calvin Klein. The photograph by Bruce Weber of a well-muscled young man in white briefs, leaning against a thickly white-washed chimney on Santorini Island in Greece, became the iconic image of “male as sex object” in the 1980s. American Photographer magazine named the photo as one of “10 Pictures That Changed America.” (From Wikipedia.com)
And I have to agree, this was a picture that changed America!

Places in Michigan.
I was reading a list about Michigan and the was on the list.
The Cross in the Woods Catholic shrine in Indian River has a 31-foot high crucifix, the largest one in the world.
I have been to Indian River a couple if times. The Cross is so beautiful. When your in the grounds, it’s so peaceful. If you ever get the chance, you really need to visit The Cross in the Woods Catholic shrine in Indian River.
