OLDIES BUT GOODIES

My  niece sent me these links for those of us who reminisce about the earlier TV, mostly B&W of my childhood, so I thought some of you might enjoy clicking on them. A lot of them were idealistic, something that would not pass for good ratings these days.

I watch reruns, of Andy Griffith even today. There is a Bible study series based on some of his shows. Today I watch reruns of REBA, but even some of the subject matter and language in them would have been censored in the days of the following links.Clink on an underlined year, or underlined title, tolink and enjoy YESTERDAY, SO LONG AGO FOR ME!!!! Some are really blurry, but I remember we did not think so in those day when it was magic to have a "picture show movie" in your own home.

Firefox wouldn't open the links for me either. I also watch The Andy Griffith shows whenever I see them on.I don't know how some shows get on the air! Really nice finding your blog!

Arkansas Patti said...

Those were the good old days for sure. I remember just about all of them. My computer is just barely chugging along so I will check back later.
I am even having trouble getting most blogs to open. Grrr.

CHERI said...

I definitely remember a lot of these! Wish those days were still around. TV, music, movies...they're all so racy these days. Even the commercials are unbelievable. Who wants to sit and watch an ad on adult diapers or feminine pads????? I look forward to working my way through these links. Thanks so much for sharing:)
