fantasy island right after the love boat every saturday night. ricardo montalban played mr. roarke on fantasy island, a show about people going to a resort to live out a fantasy. montalban's character, mr. roarke, always greeted his guests with a smile, and encouraged his staff to do the same. now ricardo montalban may have died 3 years ago, but yesterday at sam's club, shopping for homer's, i saw mr. roarke. this man was got out of his car saying, "happy monday everyone! happy monday!" the beginning of the work week isn't usually a day most people get happy, but this guy made me (and others) smile, and suddenly i was back on fantasy island.
