Knowing Southern California's penchant for health and fitness, are you referring to Molly or the moose?

Boy, stop me in my tracks. The Enquirer and the Star are the epitome of all that is good and true. I get both in the hardbound edition’s every month. I am soooo glad that they left the love child to our imagination. They at least have the decency to never demean Marlon, Jim or Molly (Bless her soul). Anyway one night great grandma made a stew from a recipe that she got from a book she sent away for called the “Wild Kingdom’s Eat on the run” series. I remember great grandfather had a dickens of a time coming up with the makin’s called for in the book. I think some substations were made. But whatever, even thought it had a peculiar flavor everyone ate up and mentioned nothing about it. Sometime afterward, I could see great grandpas twinkle in his eye (it could have been a tear leaking from his eye caused by the stew) a sure sign a bedtime story was about to be told. Great grandpa reached down from his easy chair and lifted me up on his knee, the effort causing him to let go, ‘a big one’ sounded like ‘putttweeeeeepoof’. Tonight I am going to tell you a story about am episode of “Wild Kingdom” where Marlon and Jim where on the plains of the Serengeti surrounded by all the wild animals. My eyes became as large as silver dollars either because I was about to hear another exciting story or that a wild animal odor filled the air setting the stage for another adventure. Anyway Marlon and Jim were stalking a herd of rhinoceros nearby which were kicking themselves up a dust bath, (something Marlon could have used) he always claimed the gray tank in the Overlander was always full. It seemed Lowell (remember Lowell) lost all interest in the Overlander after sleeping in the tent the night the Airstream was in use. Lowell couldn’t remember he ever owned an Airstream after seeing Molly holding her rack after the effects of the tranquilizer wore off. (Refer to photo # 1 in this thread). Great grandfather said it was just Serengeti fever, which is quite common when you’re deep in the bush, because he had it once with my great grandma, coincidentally while they were in Africa too. As Marlon ordered Jim to load his rifle with the dart the rhinos got whiff of Marlon. Even thought rhinos have poor eyesight one of them zeroed in on Marlon’s scent and begin charging. Marlon was cool as a cucumber because he was confidant that Jim would bolt out across the grassland carrying Marlon’s scent. (The same vacuum principal your Airstream has when in tow). Luckily for Jim, he scurried up the only boabab tree around for miles. That’s when he met the very young Roy, of today’s, Siegfried and Roy fame, who was just there by chance in the same tree. He was in a small blind, painted passionate pink with the words “Hello Kitty” painted on the outside. Roy was looking through the laced curtains of the blind looking for the prefect tiger to bag live, and train to fulfill a dream for a future show in Vegas. Jim couldn’t believe that Roy smeared cat food over his body to attract the kitties. Meanwhile Marlon had made his way back to the Overlander where he took a nap. Molly was no where to be seen but most likely went into town to pickup supplies. Back at the tree Jim could see that the rhino left because a big cat was approaching the boabab tree quickly. Jim leaped from the tree as the cat sprang up into the tree. As Jim made his way back to camp he could hear Roy was giggling to high heavens because he was taking a pretty good licking from the cat. Meanwhile at camp, Lowell had set up his video gear and put it on auto run to capture a local savage giving him a lesson on the use of a blowgun while standing in front of the tent. As the savage ‘blow gun expert’ was placing a tranquilizer dart in the blow end, Lowell was examining the exit end of the blowgun. For some reason, no one can explain Lowell rapped his lips on the exit end of the blowgun and inhaled causing the dart to sail down the tube and stuck Lowell firmly in the tong. Lowell immediately fell backwards in the tent for another long and un-necessary sleep. The savage took Lowell’s sunglasses his blowgun and ran back into the bush. Remember all this was caught on film. Jim arrived moments later only to find Marlon asleep in the Overlander and Lowell snoring in the tent. He looked around for Molly but to no avail. Finding the land rover missing he assumed Molly went to town for supplies. Well, it seems that Molly had way too much of the guys, and while in town bought a one way ticket and boarded a tramp steamer bound for the good old U.S. Several weeks later Molly relocated and got the job she still has today at the truck stop on I-94. Meanwhile back on the Serengeti Roy with kitty, Jim, Marlon and Lowell wound up in the Overlander and found Wally Bryam’s Airstream caravan and joined it. Eventually they ended their Wild Adventure in the States. You all know the rest of the story. We all should rally at the truck stop some day and give Molly the joy she really longs to see. That picture, and that Airstream Overlander, just one more time.

P.S. Is that what they mean by " Nice rack "?

No. A nice rack is something you can't look at when the wife is around.

Or, about the age Marlin Perkins was when he started hosting Wild Kingdom...
