I was watching the TVLAND channel the other day while I was cleaning my living room and MASH came on. That opening song takes me right back to high school, on the farm and everyone huddled around the T.V. to watch MASH because we wouldn't miss it. It always gives my heart a little tug cause it reminds me of my daddy and he loved that show. It was a special time when we sat and watched our favorite shows. There were no cell phones, no computers, game boys or play stations. We all watch TV as a family and actually had to get up and change to one of the three channels we had to choose from. We usually had two channels but we had three on a good night if one of the boys got on top of the house and turned the antenna just right. I think that is partly what is wrong with families today, there is never time spent together without something else going on. I have my DVR set to record The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Bob Newhart Show, there is nothing more funny than these two old shows .
Another theme that reminds me of my daddy is the Dallas theme. He would plan his farming chores around this show! The night they revealed who shot JR he was at one of our basketball games and he would go to a phone and call someone to see who shot him. I love these memories and hold them in my heart, I wonder if our children will do the same?
