I see your control panel is empty, too. I wonder if this isn't a case of corrupt preferences. Have you tried resetting them?

Are you looking at a based-on master, with the items on the parent?

the master page itself was selected.  I did finally get this to work I'll add your's as the correct answer just becasue i'm replying to it. I had to reset my Preferences, delete my cache several times and select this master page several times for it to work.

Try resetting your preferences and if that does not work then try resetting the cache. See instructions at the link below
