Night George!

George Jefferson is dead.

Well, Sherman Hemsley is dead, which means George is dead.

I used to love the Jefferson's.  Mother Jefferson was my fave.  She was such a pistol, wasn't she?  And, I can see George doing his little dance if I think about it.    Every time my back hurts, I want Mr. J to come walk on my back. 

TV was so much better as a kid.  I watched the Brady Bunch, the Partridge Family, All in the Family, the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Newhart, and  O M G, the Carol Burnett Show. 

I think the CBS was my favorite of all time.  I loved the skits.  I loved Tim Conway as the old man.  I loved when Harvey Korman lost it and started laughing.  Oh, Carol Burnett, you were such a mainstay of my youthful Saturday nights.

I would watch it right now if I could. I would watch all of them right now. 

Throw in some Medical Center, Big Valley, and Roots, and I think I was pretty darn lucky growing up; I had great entertainment.  We may have only had three channels (if we were lucky) but we sure had some great shows.  Now, I have hundreds, and can't seem to find anything to watch. 

Mr. Jefferson, I hope you are living it up in that de-luxe apartment in the sky.

you're so right...he'll be missed right along with all the great t.v. I watched as a kid
for me? it was Little Joe Cartright and Mark from The Rifleman....
I did spend far too much time watching The Brady Bunch and wanting to look like Laurie from The Partridge Family..
today the kids have Miley...how sad is that?

He will be missed for sure.

I can totally sing that theme song right now! It's funny...my next door neighbor's mom is quite deaf, and she has her TV turned up sky high. Our window and their windows are open, of course--and I heard the theme song to "All in the Family" and my body had this weird visceral reaction--I was 10 years old again!

Oh, and the peach foofatini is nothing more than overripe peaches/nectarines, apple juice, vodka, and ice cubes, all whirred up in a blender. YUM! It also works with strawberries...or so I hear.

Brady Bunch. Laverne & Shirley. Happy Days. Charlie's Angels. Little House on the Prarie.


And.... Mrs. Wiggins with Tim Conway.

Mr. J. has truly moved on up.
