WELCOME to All Comments from the Peanut Gallery

Oops! does that title date me. For the clueless, the "peanut gallery" was the place were little kids sat on stage to watch the Howdy Doody Show which was filmed live back in the early 1950s. Here's the Howdy Doody puppet with his friend Princess Summer Fall Winter Spring. How do I remember that? The host of the show was Buffalo Bob!
