HUMP DAY POTPOURRI — A LOOK BACK — MARCH 9

Nostalgic Moments -- the 1970s

This week I’ve seen two interviews that catapulted me backwards in time.

The first was an Oprah interview with Meredith Baxter.  Remember her as Elise Keaton, in Family Ties?

Then I saw her on The Talk.

Some of the snippets I gathered from these interviews were moments even further back, before Family Ties. Does anyone remember that old series called Family, starring Meredith Baxter, Kristy McNichol, Sada Thompson, and James Broderick, et. al.?

I had searched the various TV stations over the years, to see if it was playing in reruns on TV-Land, or a similar network.  Nothing.  But after the show, I Googled “Family – 1970s” (don’t you love Google?), and there it was.  A link to Amazon and a DVD of the first two seasons.

I was very excited, and, of course, I ordered it.  I received it yesterday.

Do you ever feel that “blast from the past,” echoing like long lost moments, with all the feelings that accompanied them?

Maybe it’s just me…getting older and all.  LOL

Okay, I don’t hear you laughing.  You’re saying that it’s obvious that I’m getting older?  Well, don’t worry…if you haven’t arrived at that point yet, you will.

What do you remember from long ago?  Maybe your memories don’t go backwards in time as far as mine do, but I’ll bet you can think of something that pushes that nostalgia button.  I hope you’ll stop by and share….

  3. I missed that interview with Mrs. Keaton, darn. I loved that show and LOVED Family Ties. Kristy McNichol was my tomboy idol back then–I was to young to be a fan of hers, but I still was one. Remember Little Darlings, when she & Tatum O-Neil were at summer camp & had the bet to lose their virginity? I saw that on cable last summer & had a similar experience to what you wrote about here with Family!

    Always fun to roll down tv memory lane!

    • Oh, yes, I loved Little Darlings….and Kristy McNichol was in a film with Marsha Mason in the eighties called “Only When I Laugh,” about a mother/daughter relationship that suffers from the mother’s addiction.

      I finished the first season of “Family” yesterday…watched pretty much all day long. It still felt fresh to me, even though it’s been so many years.

      Thanks for stopping by, Ghetto Girl.

  4. Yeah, I get those blasts from the past now and then. My dd’s friends had been talking about “real old” bands and music in school. She asked me about the BeeGees. I Youtubed them. Then my ds comes racing out of his room. He want’s an outfit like they wear in the video. *groan*.
