    I love these, Sandee ~~ Most seem to be bedroom or sex oriented, I'm still smiling. I watched that program but can't picture any part of it. YouTube probably has lots of episodes. ??? =))
    BTW, that day's shrimp salad was really good. Princess always has a snack bar besides the coffee bar with pastries and light eating. It was my lunch that day. Oh, I might have gone topside for a pizza or a krautdog or both.

    • May 7, 2015 at 8:50 am

      YouTube has tons of these old shows.

      That shrimp salad looked so good. πŸ™‚

  16. May 7, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    I remember those days, but never really a big fan of the show although I did watch it some. Keep in mind, not many choices in those times.

    • May 8, 2015 at 10:59 am

      There weren't many choices back then indeed. At midnight there wasn't any television at all. Just the test pattern. πŸ™‚

  17. May 7, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    BWAHAHA!! Never point and laugh and never no never do it in bed!

    • May 8, 2015 at 11:00 am

      So very true. Takes romance to an all time low. πŸ™‚
