"...deck the hoo-ha with boughs of holly!"Wouldn't that be...prickly?*snerk*Sorry...I couldn't help it.
mmmmm. ribbon candy. 1978? There had BETTER be a Super Star Barbie in there or..or..or else!
...Tammy in Accounting! Oh..my..dear..sweet Baby Jesus!And a MOKS of toys? It really WILL be a happy Christmas morning!
My Grandmother had those mushroom cannisters. And the microwave, stereo, and television. My Grandfather worked at Sears in the 70s. It was spooky to see them all in the same place again.
Wow, that brings back memories. Not all of them good. *laugh* We owned those cannisters.
I have the 1979 version of that same microwave, and I will not trade it for a more current one. How else would I dye my wool?--blueknitter
The one thing about that TV and remote. That was in the day where the remote was connected to the TV with a long cable. Nothing says fun like a cord across the living room floor to trip up Mom.
Yeah, the mushroom cannisters and stuff - my mom had those. YIKES!
The mushrooms! OH the mushrooms! WHY WHY? Everyone's Grandma and/or Mom had those - I think my Grandma STILL has them! noooooooooo! I am really surprised you didn't mention the microphone with the primo stereo system. he he heHow did any of us escape the 70's? ew
Tee! I think I remember that Wishbook, too . . . ah, those were the days!And, did you notice--the PC is retroactive--even the 1978 Wishbook is for the "Holiday" season.
Dude, the kids in the Frosty pic are freaking me out. They're all zombie like. Probably had too many hot dogs.
Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah!Love your posts! Oh, and I thought you were supposed to decorate your hoo-ha with sprigs of mistletoe and lots of glitter? I didn't get the boughs of holly memo. darn.
you forgot FESTIVUS ... for the rest of us.as always, brilliant. that's what i want for x-mas. your wit. i know the baby jesus is smiling.merry christmas, and all that girlfriend. looking forward to the toys. because it's all about the toys.
I think we should throw that kid out of school for kissing the girl. Or something.
Happy Holidays, Stitchy! That was hilarious. Thank you.
....er, does this mean I have to return the Santa pinata I just picked up for the New Year's Eve party?
My mom had the mushroom teapot - a Christmas gift from one of her students when she taught elementary school. When we cleaned out Mom's things after she died, my sister and I originally put the teapot on the yard sale table, but after a while I took it off and kept it because I decided it was so awful it was fun. :-)So I am now the proud owner of a vintage 1970's Sears Mushroom Teapot.
Hope you and your holly-boughed hoo-ha have a spectacular weekend!
ohmygosh, my parents had that exact TV until, like, a month ago. And I know we've still got the mushroom plates, just saw them at Thanksgiving! LOL - thanks for reminding us of all that stuff! Happy Holidays!
Oh scary - I knew lots of people who had the whole mushroom set. Some of it MAY have lived in my house but I think I am blocking the memory out...
I got MARRIED in 1978 and we had the microwave, the stereo and the television set.And yes I remember those mushroom sets!!!! Oh my gosh was it that long ago!!!!(beating head on table)
Good gawd, we had that microwave in my house when I was growing up! And I have the Merry Mushroom canister set in my cupboard. I was 4 in good ol' 1978 so your post brought back great memories.
I know I'm days late, but we had that microwave, too. I remember that Grandma couldn't go in the kitchen when it was on because it would affect her pacemaker detrimentally.
I'm late too, but we STILL have that microwave and after literally dozens of moves around the country it still works like new.
I really really want the 8-track/cassette/LP system! But then, my hubbie and I both have large vinyl collections. With that gadget, I could start an 8-track collection and have something to listen to it on!
