Re: [MOL] Christine,Kathy,Lil,Martha



Hi:  My sister loves Red Green.  I can't quite see what's so funny about
it -- and the other shows, of course, I've never heard of.  I did like the
McKenzie Brothers, though.  Especially their twelve days of Christmas!
Thirty-eight was a good age  --I vaguely remember it!  -- Love, Kathy
