When I'm not thinking about restaurants....


When I'm not thinking about restaurants, I am generally thinking something like this:

If Anna Magnani had lived long enough, maybe she and not Betty Buckley would have been cast as Tom Bradford's second wife and stepmother to his children on the 1970s tv series "Eight is Enough." 

Then, when one of kids started acting all emotionally resentful and insolent, she'd have said:

"Oh, boo-ha-hoo, you big Crybaby, you make me sick.  What your name? Mary? OK, Mary, I tell you something, You listen to these words. Your mother, she dead. She dead, and she no come back. Never."

Not sure either Eve, but laughing hysterically over it!


I can imagine her relating their lame problems to when the Nazis burned down her village and worse.

I think a little tough love would have knocked some sense into Nicholas, and maybe he wouldn’t have turned out to be such a disappointment to Dick Van Patten.

silly rich, but very funny

Is everyone older than me or do I have brain damage? I have no idea what this show is.

Owl Meat -- this informative video should help jog your memory

Owl, everyone is older than you.

Maybe the show was on that year when I spent a lot of time in the solarium with Colonel Mustard crafting candlesticks.

Oh, it have been during the period where I was hangin' with my bro-yo Buddy Lembeck and I was going to college and taking care of the Powell family kids. Whew, all those hijinks seemed to happened in the Powell's basement. WIld times and fashionable suspenders! Good times

Owl, everyone is older than you.

Emotionally, for sure.
