    just discovered wind on my back, it’s great! Happy not to hear vulgarity, obscenity and violence. sad it was cancelled.

  • The Gibsons says:

    I wholeheartedly agree with Joanne. We have enjoyed Wind at my Back ever since we discovered it. My husband gets so aggravated at May because she is so ugly and mean to Grace. It’s a good thing he can’t reach her or she would be in real trouble. We really look forward to each program and are really disappointed when “sports” takes it’s place. PLEASE KEEP IT RUNNING!!
