    A little earlier than Gilligans' Island!

    Maynard G. Krebs
    is the "beatnik" sidekick of the title character in the U.S. television sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, which aired on CBS from 1959 to 1963.

    The Krebs character, portrayed by actor Bob Denver, begins the series as a stereotypical beatnik, with a goatee, "hip" (slang) language, and a generally unkempt, bohemian appearance. His abhorrence of conventional social forms is signified by comical reactions to three words: "work", "marriage", and "police". For example, whenever the word "work" is mentioned, even in passing, he yelps "Work?!" and jumps with fear or even faints. He serves as a foil to the well-groomed, well-dressed, straight-laced Dobie, and the contrast between the two friends provides much of the humor of the series. Among the memorable phrases uttered in the series is Gillis' regular comment, "Good stuff, Maynard," which long-preceded its use in the Malt-O-Meal commercial from the early 1980s that so many reference as the phrase's origin.

    Yeah, it has to be her idea, as well. Mine is all on board and eager to make the move. The good news is that it's a pretty good time now for us to sell. Now if some buyers will just come around, we're ready to pull the trigger!

    That is the hic up in my plan.....the bride doesn't want to move.....I have thought of getting a driving job from central Ohio to southern Alabama with days of layover down there (pier time) then get something back home.....do it again,then again.....That would justify buying a house/trailer down there and vehicle while there.....just a thought/ not a plan just yet

    Of course work is pretty much by definition not fun. If it was, you would be paying the employer, not the other way around.....I have 2 or 3 years left before I have (mostly) full control of my schedule, assuming I still have my health. I may do a little part time stuff if I can squeeze it in.
