This past Sunday was the last episode of Mad Men for this season.

For the past seven weeks I have looked forward to seeing what Matthew Weiner had cooked up for the Mad Men gang. Now there's nothing to look forward to this weekend!

This season was split up and cut short.

Now I have to wait until NEXT YEAR to see how life turns out for all those characters that I know so well.

The show was on from 10:00pm to 11:00pm. Some nights I would watch it a second time and catch things that I missed the first time. Sometimes after the show was over I would go to and read reactions and thoughts from viewers that gave me food for thought.

Every so often I'd look at the clock and see it was 11:30, it was 11:45, it was 12:00, the comments kept coming but this girl had to go to bed.

I wasn't done yet!

I have a friend that is hooked on the show like I am.

The next day we would get on the phone and analyze what had happened the previous night. What fun that was!

Sometimes she or I would mention something that took place that was subtle, you could miss it.

Each episode always had something that would surprise us, puzzle us, shock us or just leave us wanting more.

The midseason finale was fantastic.

What a surprise ending - Robert Morse who played the part of "Bert" dies.

Robert Morse made a big hit when he was a young man in the musical "How To Succeed in Business Without Trying."

He's now in his 80's, he did a marvelous song and dance routine with a group of chorus girls to the tune of "The Best Things in Life are Free."

What a way to end the season!

Millie, this is sure not me :)
I am up at 5:30 AM usually gardening by 8:30 if weather permits.
So this means I am usually in bed by 8:00 at night and read until I go to sleep.
A lifetime habit
when younger these hours, but family and working. I have some thoughts about a retirement place like you are now enjoying but do not know if I can leave my cottage in the woods - will see
as time goes by.
Hi Millie,

I enjoyed the contrast of the old and the new Robert Morse!

I too will miss Mad Men and the conversations relating to the Series! Great Job!!!
I give you 5 Stars for this Blog.

Not hooked, never watched MM. Saw HS in B with Matthew Broderick.
