I loved the Brady Bunch. I was one of six kids myself, but we were more of an Addam's Family/The Munsters kind of dynamic.


My doctor asked me: "Does anyone in your family suffer from mental illness?" My answer:"No they all enjoy it immensely."

Wow, love all the posts!! I liked Addams Family Brady Bunch and Fanasty Island too. I used to like horror. When my son was in his early teens, he liked Freddie Kruger Friday the 13th and Chucky. I watched them all with him, as well as all the Rambo, Rocky series and Chuck Norris. Oh and WWF! He even bought a Chucky doll which he scared the crap out of me all the time with it. I hated having that doll in the house. He ended up at the city landfill.

As I got older and started having an interest in the life after death, I don't care for the horror movies anymore. speechless

Speaking of when my son was young, I had gotten him a Nintendo Mario Brothers game. I had no idea what it was, but it was Xmas or his birthday, can't remember which. Well, I got totally addicted. We played non stop. Couldn't wait to get home after work, or on weekends to play MB. We had an awful snow/ice storm with no heat or electricity for four days. We closed ourselves in the family room, which had an old stone fireplace. We lived in there for four days, playing MB, making food in the fireplace, friends across the street joined us, laugh out loud what fun!

Chucky oh my goodness! My childhood best friend loved to watch every one of those movies after school! Had nightmares for days! affraid

My grandma still has her Nintendo 64! I'm surprised it still works after all these years. Tetris is her game! No one can beat her @ that!

I got a taste for American TV after we moved to Regina, Canada in 1969. Coming from what was Yugoslavia at the time (now Croatia), it was quite the culture shock. Not only was there a foot of snow on the ground when we arrived...I had barely seen a dusting of flurries in my hometown of Split...but, oh the heavenly TV. Coming from what was a socialist republic...not quite communist...but, you get the idea, the programming was magical to me. I had grown up with mostly news, occasional concerts, old movies, some kids cartoons and lots of propaganda. Once here, I could not get enough of I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, Beverly Hillbillies, Brady Bunch, Perry Mason. Later on it was the Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Remington Steele, Magnum PI, Murder She Wrote, Matlock, MacMillan and Wife, Star Trek...all the incarnations. I still catch the reruns when they play. So much more fun than most of the stuff on now.

Sprite: me, my husband and two daughters were all born in Regina and we moved to Saskatoon in 1998. It's sort of a small world. Smiley

PS the shows you listed reminded me of another favorite, Hart to Hart.

That was another one I watched!

It is a small world. We were only in Regina for 6 months. Six months of snow! We arrived in December and left in June and it seemed as if the snow finally melted when we were leaving. We moved to Oakville, Ontario after but I still remember it so vividly. My favourite was that first night driving to my aunt's and uncle's house in all the snow and seeing all the Christmas lights on the houses. I had never seen anything like it and it was so magical. Still love seeing the Christmas lights and all the decorations!

If we dress my grandson in overalls and the striped tee and he has a tantrum(which is common at his age), he very much resembles Chucky. JMO

Haha Sprite, that must've been an exceptional year! Snow is typically gone here in March/April at the latest. I remember one freak year it dumped a heavy wet blanket of snow in May but obvi that melted right away. And another freak year me and hubs set up a basketball hoop and stand in shorts and tees in December. So it's not horrible horrible horrible. Hugesmile

GA, I wondered what type of music did ex-hub's band play?

We lived in Regina for 2 years and were there for the coldest winter in 25 years (at that time). I remember people leaving their cars running while shopping in the winter and having to plug in the car's block heater overnight in the garage. Brrrrrr.

Small small world! Funny, probably the least known about province in Canada! Smiley  Yes, haha leaving the car running while Xmas shopping (if you cannot find a vacant spot in underground heated parking) is not completely unusual normally, although most people have command start nowadays. This year it's been very, very mild. Today it's starting to get colder and is -6°C / 21.2°F and is forecast to get colder as the week goes on to -19°C / -2.2°F on Sat.

Texas would be a nice place to live. I've only been to Austin and it was in May so great weather. Regina and Saskatoon although only 2 1-1/2 hrs apart in the same province are very different. Over the years as I've gone back to visit fam and friends, we've found Regina very slow paced and less progressive than Saskatoon. I think it is the bigger university here and just more entrepreneurial and energetic. It is also the prettier city of the two. The people in Regina are very nice though! :gotcha:
