"You're pretty, you're smart..."

"...you've stolen my heart."

These words of love were spoken by Edward Stratton III (Joel Higgins) to his soon-to-be wife Kate Summers (Erin Gray) on the totally 80s sitcom Silver Spoons.

While in real life my heart has only been stolen twice (both times retrieved), Erin and her characters were pleasant fantasies. She turned 58 on Monday and was paid tribute on John DuMond's Nobody Move. A day earlier I had bought the first season of Magnum P.I. for $19.59 mainly because it featured Erin as Joy "Digger" Doyle, for whom a spinoff series was attempted.

She's 58. I listed her age as 57 in my post. I guess I just thought she looked younger. Either that, or I totally don't know what year it is. Still getting my mind around 2008, I guess. Thanks for the link, Gerald.
