Roanokers have fond memories of Cactus Joe-Little Bitty Pete and Uncle Looney
I was watching Gunsmoke on television yesterday and one of the characters reminded me of Catus Joe ( Joe Grant) who had a television show on WSLS 10 when I was a child. I later saw a midget on an episode of Psych that led me to recall Little Bitty Pete, Cactus Joe's sidekick. I actually recall thinking his name was "Iddy biddy Pete" until I saw it in print. There was also a character named Uncle Looney. When I put their names in the search engine, it pulled up the group Memories of Roanoke where in 2018, many locals shared their stories about Joe and Pete, This was after Joe Grant Jr. the son of the local celebrity passed away. When you clock on the link you will read enough fond memories to fill a book.

Yes, he beat me to the punch this week when he wrote about his Naot Galaxy sneakers. I'm a little upset because not only did he admit that he doesn't listen to me, but the plan was to write about both his Men's Galaxy sneakers and my Halny shoes right here on Champagne Living - TOGETHER in one post. The man certainly keeps me on my toes. But, his admitting that I was right and he was wrong makes me feel a LOT better about it. After 42 years of marriage, the one-upmanship still exists.

What's eating you? Eating Disorders on the rise among baby boomers
Let's face it. Aging can be a challenge to body image. Although we may feel young and youthful inside, one trip to the mirror can wreck any youthful illusions we may have about aging gracefully without wrinkles and tummy fat. Still, in defiance of the obvious, a Pew Research Center survey confirms that most of us feel at least 10-20 years younger than we are. And a glance at the birthdate on the driver's license only confirms it. Have you recently applied online for any credit cards? Scrolling down through the years to find your birthdate can feel like hours.
