Things went breezy at schol. I now have got all my books except for Geometry which is sold out! Spanish wasn't that hard and I got out of English all together. I caught the earliest bus back and avoided the crowds. I got off at Woolworths and picked up the Fall Preview TV GUIDE as well as THE STAR for an Evel article (as well as a Bruce lee one!).
Trouble is we fixed my glasses so well last night that I forgot they were broken and so forgot to stop in town for my test!
Got all nostalgic again. Oh, how I wish the "good old days" were still here!
Watched the debut of THAT'S MY MAMA tonight. Pretty good.
NOTES: THAT'S MY MAMA was an African-American sitcom starring Clifton Davis and Theresa Merritt. I thought it was pretty funny, especially Teddy Wilson and a pre-LOVE BOAT Ted Lange in supporting roles. It lasted only 39 episodes over two seasons. Last year, I watched a marathon of them on TV and they held up better than other, more successful, "black" sitcoms of the day such as GOOD TIMES and SANFORD AND SON.
"That's My Mama" was definitely an early TV memory for me, around 3-4 years old living in Princess Anne, MD about to move almost an hour to Salisbury the next year. Honestly considered the show a figment of my imagination until a local station played a mini-marathon of TMM's on a Sunday afternoon (around 1986, when Clifton Davis got a career resurgence on Amen...)
(Well, about to start the '74-'75 season....)
