I could watch a round of Leave It To Beaver right now. Iconic show, indelible characters, perfect casting, beloved. June Cleaver was America's mom — and Canada's mom, too, Wally.

**** my heart aches,as i ponder the wonderful years of yesterday.At 49,friends will ask why I would I still be watching,"leave it to beaver" episodes. I say to them, why not? They are memories of a special time, a time lost to so called "NEW T.V.".."Reality Trash" Barabara Billingsly was A TRUE LADY, one of true grace,beauty,manners. In real life,she was no different. God Rest Your Soul.I will keep watching,and never forget.
