Places new and ladies too...

Under the category of "bad TV shows I would probably still watch if they were still on" or "shows TVLand should syndicate": BJ and the Bear. Yes, I was still years away from my first training bra and I had to sneak out of bed into the den to watch it because it was on after my bedtime, but I loved me some BJ.

In case you're not familiar, BJ McKay (played by Greg Evigan) was a trucker who traveled around the country in his big rig with his lady friend pet chimp, Bear. I think it was a Dukes of Hazzard spinoff because I vaguely remember Sheriff Elroy P. Lobo being in some of the episodes. One of the Landers sisters (or maybe both of them) guest-starred often. Oh, and BJ had a way with the ladies. One in particular, sitting on orange shag carpet wearing her Rainbow Brite pajamas, watching TV in the dark and dreaming about when she would be old enough to marry BJ and move into the cab of his truck. Funny...even at that age I was already wondering how to bring up the topic of chimpanzee boarding school (because you know chimps smell bad, even if they are wearing diapers, and I wasn't going to be stepmother to some hairy little beast with a load in his pants).

So yes, my very first crush ever was on a charming trucker. Go figure.

  7. Stupid or no, you BOTH want to touch my monkey.

    Touch him, love him!

    Does anyone care that the theme song from BJ and the Bear has been going through my head nonstop for over a WEEK?
