Re: Dinosaurs in space?



Dan,

I "think" I remember that show. I was only around the age of five at the
time.  I remember I had a lunchbox with a "space" theme on it. I probably
still have it somewhere in the house. Of course, I vaguely remember watching
a "space" show around that time. However, I do not recall the title of the
show or any specific episodes.  If that was the only "space" show on at that
time, it probably was "Men in Space". The name Col. McCauley sounds very
familiar.  If you want to continue to reminisce and see your life (as well
as mine) passing before your eyes, contact me off list.

Thanks,

Jim Hower
