Get it while you can...... Dec 10, 2009
I had a hard time trying to purchase this DVD, but this site finally got it in so I grabbed it while it was available. I have not had time to view it yet (Christmas Season is a hectic time at my house) and I want to have the time to watch it in one sitting, to savor and enjoy. I have heard fantastic things about this show and am really looking forward to watching it. Will post another review after I watch it. But anything that has Tennessee Ernie in it is bound to be wonderful!
