      That was pilot error on my part not Murray’s. I had a half dozen or so St Petersburg shots mixed in with Moscow (even one from Berlin!). I believe I have them all straight now.

      Hey Sov, where did you get the “G” from, it’s not on IMDB, I vaguely, very vaguely recall, that that was my first initial?

      • SovMarxist1924 says:

        Baby Boomer’s (dream=nightmare): Watching “Gilligan’s Island.” Some things stick with you (like scar tissue). I vaguely recall an episode where Howell adopts Gilligan and christens him “G. Thurston Howell IV.” You can buy the show on DVD. But why would you want to?!

        • SovMarxist1924 says:

          Maybe the “G.” stood for Gilligan. I’m going insane… (Capitalism and “Gilligan’s Island” will do that to you….)

          • Archy Bunka says:

            Ok that explains G.
            Gilligan’s Island was nice, family entertainment. No cussing, no sex, no politics, and yet it was funny in the old slapstick way, which I like.

  6. Thurston Howell III says:

    I knew the royal family well, I went to the fire sale.
