I just had a crazy text "conversation" with my friend Ang. It went something like this:
A: Ricardo Montalban died.
C: You mean the guy from Fantasy Island.
C: Sad, I liked that show when I was a kid.
A: I used to love it! That and Love Boat.
C: And Dallas and Falcon Crest on Fridays.
A: Oh wow. Forgot about Falcon Crest. Used to watch Dallas sometimes.
C: And Knots Landing on Thursdays. My Mom and I used to watch it.
A: Yeah. I don't think I watched that.
C: My Mom and I would go upstairs to her bedroom because Pops hated it and Hill Street Blues was on anyway. We would watch it together and I would get to lay on Pop's side of the bed.
A: That is so cool.
C: Yep, good memory!! Thanks for making me think of it.
I know, it was just a conversation about 80s television. Besides the fact that it just proves that I have always been addicted to TV (why isn't there any good shows on Saturdays anymore?), it also brought up a really good memory that made me smile big.
I am so thankful for this, it brought my afternoon to a really good, warm place... teary eyes and all : )
