85% match. I always wanted to be a Barkley or at least marry Audra. Other than Hoss, the Cartwrights were always too diva for me. 🤣

I Definitely Would Have LOVED to Be the Only Female Honorary “Cartwright!!”
Yes, I Say Honorary, but I Mean, I Would Have Been the Caring, Loving, Yet WORKING,Wife (& Mom), to “Little Joe!!”
When I Say “Working Wife,” I Mean, On the Ranch, NOT JUST in the Kitchen,...and DEFINITELY NOT Barefoot & Preggers w/6 Cartwright Kids Bouncing Around “GrandPa Ben” & “Uncle Hoss!” Besides, “Hop Sing” Would Kick Her Out, at Least at the Main House!! 😉
Of Course My Character Would Insist on a Separate Home Built Not TOO Close to “Pa,” & “Hoss!!”
My Character “Cassandra O’Shea,” is the daughter, of an old friend of “Ben”
Who Came to Stay with “Ben,” After Her Father’s Funeral. He and Ben Were Both 11 year old deck hands on a New England Schooner, when they met!! A Union Officer, and Medical Doctor, “Colonel Francis Xavier O’Shea,” Was Tough, Yet, Very Well Loved, By Subordinates, and Officers as Well!!

Everyone Called Him “Colonel!” He Saved MANY Lives, and Was Awarded One of the FIRST “Medals of Honor” by President Abraham Lincoln Himself, Not Long Before the President Was Assassinated.
“Joe & “Cassandra” were More Than Friends when they were young, but “Cassandra” & Her Father moved Back East, to Boston after Cassandra’s Mother Died (“Mrs. Mary (Ryan) O’Shea) to Live with His Maiden Sister, “Miss Elizabeth O’Shea,” (Who Along With “Mary,” and for a while, “Cassie,” Were Nurses During the War & Afterward).
“The Colonel” Lived for Many Years under the Loving Care of His Daughter & Sister. When “The Colonel” died, “Ben,” “Hoss,” & ”Joe” Attended the Funeral, Near “Virginia City,” Where His Wife Was Buried.
“Cassandra,” (Whom Joe & the Cartwrights called “Cassie”) & “Little Joe,” Immediately Fell Head over Heels in Love, and
Within Months, They Built a House, & were Married!! They Had 3 Children,....2 Boys & a Girl!! The 1st Boy is; Benjamin Eric Cartwright, Who they Call, “Benj,” of Course, Named after His GrandPa, and “Eric” for “Hoss’” Real Name!! The 2nd Boy is Named “Francis, “Frankie,” Ryan Cartwright, after “The Colonel” (“Ryan,” after Mary’s Maiden Name). Their Adorable Baby Girl, named after her Grandmother, and Grand-Aunt, “Mary Elizabeth Cartwright, who came 5years After Frankie was born, Became Her Family’s Princess!

When “Aunt Elizabeth,” came to stay with the “Cartwrights,” Surprise, “Elizabeth” & “Ben,” (Who, of Course, knew each other for Years), Fell in Love!!
Then “Cassandra” Invites her Best Friend From Boston to Visit, her Name Is “Sally Simmons!!”
Sally is Tall, Lanky, But Sweet, Loving & Kind,...a PERFECT Match for “Hoss!!”

NOTE: I KNOW, This Made Up Fantasy IS Silly, Kooky, Untrue, LOL 😂, But What the Hell!!
It’s Just Poking A Little Fun at a Bygone Era, and My Crush on “Little Joe Cartwright,” (Michael Landon), and All the “Ponderosa” Boys!! “Bonanza”
BTW: This Takes Place IN MY MIND, AFTER Pernell Roberts, who Played “Adam Cartwright” left the show, (1965), and “Adam’s” Name & Personage, were stricken from the show!!
Jeez, Couldn’t they Just Have Said, “Adam” Died??!??

71% similar. For "who would be your friend and confident", how could there be any choice
but Wrangler Jane from F-Troop. Even if she gave you bad advice, who cares?

Bonanza was a clear winner in this sampling!!

63% similar. I’d rather say that I’m 37% different than most. And 100% didn’t care much for this quiz.

No love for Zorro?
I guess I can't complain, because I picked James West in that question.
I can't believe how many of you want to play cards with Bret Maverick. If you want to give away your money that badly, send it to me.

I think in terms of the pleasure of his company! After all he was pretty darn charming. And if you became his friend maybe he would share some poker tips!

Just a thought!

LOL 😂 Good One, John!!
Me Too, Pacificsun, “James West,” (Robert Conrad,” was One Good Looking Man!!
Hmm, Hmm, Hmm!! 🤗 🥵 ☺️

80% who wants to play card's with a good card player?
I wouldn’t want to play with Charlie Wooster. He cheats.

I know, right? I picked Joe Cartwright because he's the second-dumbest Cartwright brother.
Pacificsun John 6 days ago
Just begging to be asked .... so which one was the dumbest? LOL!
MikefromJersey John 6 days ago
Joe Cartwright was light years smarter than his brother Jamie. Hoss was a trusting soul with a
good heart and slow to condemn others. I don't think that makes him dumb.
In real life Korean war vet Dan Blocker was an intellectual who taught at a college in Texas,
and resented when people approached him and talked at him as if he was a yokel.
