DJ is in the family room putting the exercise equipment to good use. I'm here, however, exercising my fingers once again. In the midst of trying to reach 223,000 on Tetris Marathon, I heard an old familiar tune from my childhood on the television.
Isn't it amazing how certain sounds can take you right back to 1967 or 1973? Hearing the theme song, I was immediately in the living room of my childhood home, snuggled up with Lucky #2 (We had three different Lucky dogs in my childhood ~ don't ask) and Carol Burnett was coming on CBS with her weekly variety show. I could practically smell the slight fumes from our floor furnace on those cold Oklahoma nights...
I honestly can't recall a program our family enjoyed more. Dad would laugh from the bottom of his soul and Mother would often need to grab a Kleenex as her eyes were full of tears or worse... Do you remember the Tarzan yell? Or how about the stairway scene in the parody of "Gone With The Wind?" And of course, there was Mama of "Mama's Family" notoriety.
Thanks Carol. We loved you then and we still do. If you're ever in Sunny, I'd love to introduce you to Max. Although I might slip and call him "Lucky."
