They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s start off this week’s childhood memories post with a photo reliving Christmas in the 1970s: No writing on the back of the photo, but I’m guessing it’s Christmas 1977. Why Christmas? Well, let’s “read” the photo — my youngest sister and I are each […]

The news this week: Ann B. Davis, aka Alice from the Brady Bunch, has gone on to the big kitchen in the sky. All the Alice news this week has brought back childhood memories of the Brady Bunch, and there are plenty. My sister and I spent many happy hours watching the Brady Bunch. It […]
