Good 40º clear sunny morning.
It stayed cool yesterday and we only hit 70º. The big parade, Boatnik, was in Grants Pass. Our Tucker and his school band were in the parade... (taken by his dad!)
Today predictions are for warmer, up to mid 80ºs.
The Flintstones premiered on September 30, 1960, at 8:30 pm, and quickly became a hit. The first two seasons were sponsored by Winston cigarettes and the characters appeared in several black-and-white television commercials for Winston. In the commercials, Flintstones characters Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble were seen promoting Winston, and every episode ended with Fred lighting a Winston for his wife Wilma while singing the product's jingle. By the third season, however, the show's ads became more children oriented and Winston was replaced by Welch's.
