DAYS OF OLD



Despite having to deal with the aftermath of the horrendous floods, Jenny has still managed to link us up this week with the book study. I, for one, appreciate Jenny's effort considering everything she has endured. Thankyou Jenny.

This week we ponder the tv series and movies we have loved and still do love. Wow! So many.

TV series.... As a child I loved Hazel, The Dick Van Dyke Show and Petticoat Junction. Creeping into my teenage years came The Brady Bunch and my heart just went ca thump ca thump watching gorgeous David Cassidy in The Partridge Family. It saddens me that he has now gone to the big music festival in the sky. Later on came The Waltons and The Sullivans and my fav of all time series Little House on the Praire. A bit further on I always got a laugh watching The Gilmore Girls.

Now, movies... hmmmm I loved all the Shirley Temple movies, and the classics such as Gone With the Wind and Jane Eyre.  Then there was the very funny Ma and Pa Kettle fims, and Doris Day with Rock Hudson in Pillow Talk. I still have a laugh watching Lucille Ball in The Long Long Trailer and I love Fried Green Tomatoes, The Ghost and Mrs Muir, and To Kill A Mockingbird. Needless to say, I have few DVDs of the above mentioned movies and TV series.

No pics today and I hope I haven't bored you. I would love to know your favourites.

  1. I was a David Cassidy admirer too. ;-) I also enjoyed The Ghost and Mrs Muir and had completely forgotten about it. Not that I remember any domestic scenes in either shows (though they would be there) but it's reminded me once more of simpler times. Miss them. x

  6. I loved your post. You listed so many of my favorites that I had forgotten. I've watched all of them, although I don't recall the Sullivans. I'll have to see if the library has it :)

RAN OUT OF OOMPH!

It has been a really wet and windy weekend here. I think we had continuous rain for about 48 hours and the winds were quite strong. Perfect ...
