Daughter snapped a picture of hubby and me over Christmas and though I like the pic, I can't help thinking how much we resemble the couple who played on the cornflake commercial. Remember that one from ages ago? He held a pitchfork in his hand and the music was something like "New Country Cornflakes" or something like that?
Okay, never mind. Anyway, I've been thinking about how TV influences us over the years. I grew up watching Andy Griffith and Barney, Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore (please say you remember them), and as I got older, Little House on the Prairie. I can't hear that whistling tune signaling the start of an Andy Griffith re-run without getting a warm fuzzy. And when Charles Ingalls pops up on the screen, I grab my coffee and settle in for a warm-hearted, feel-good hour of entertainment. In other words, those programs shaped me into who I am today. Scary, huh?
So here's the question I throw out into the great cosmos today: What were some of your favorite shows or commercials as a kid? Do they conjure up a feeling for you when you see them today?
