The Best of Everything

With all that’s going on in the world, my husband and I like to escape to a different era by watching Turner Classic Movies. We recently enjoyed a classic that we learned was the basis of a television series which aired in 2007-2015. This got me to comparing the two, and how they portrayed their characters.

Have you ever heard of the 1959 movie, The Best of Everything?

My Celebrity Family

witsendI’d love to say that I come from a perfect family, but I’m a realist. I know my family can be dysfunctional. This is not to say that I don’t love my family, or that we didn’t have some wonderful “Leave it to Beaver” times, because we had some of those moments, too. The key is, to accept all the moments, and I’m grateful for them. They are a part of this journey called, Life.

Now, onto the celebrity portion of this post. You see, some celebrities have actually taken a part in my family life.

While we temporarily stayed with my mom, the three of us decided to dive into Netflix. Since none of us had seen Mad Men, we started from the beginning.

Let’s get on with the award etiquette. I haven’t been able to accept awards in quite a while, because I haven’t had the time. Since I have no other blog posts scheduled, the award timing is just right. Thank you, Lovely Lady Layla.

Made of Marshmallows

For my quote of the week (End of Week Wisdom installment), I didn’t feel like posting a profound quote this time. I wanted something funny. So, I’m resorting to a sitcom. However, this silly little sitcom scene actually has a deeper meaning.

TV with a Heart

Have you heard of, or seen, the show Everybody Loves Raymond? The television series is no longer running new episodes (since 2005), but the reruns are shown in syndication. Yes, I know that not everybody loves Raymond, but I do. It now equals my other longtime number one favorite, The Dick Van Dyke Show. Continue reading “TV with a Heart”
