Holiday News!

Hey If you’re visiting the east coast this holiday season, visit the tree in Rockeller Center N.Y.C.  It’s a breath taking view to see! A lot of hustle and Bustle going on and the crowds are amazing! I’ve been there a number of times over the years and it’s always like seeing it for the first time!I

Whenever I would go with my family there wasn’t enough time to do all we wanted, and the decorated store windows, we hardly saw any that year, only Macy’s and what a sight it was, as they were doing their windows as in the movie “miracle on 34th street”

Bloomingdale’s. Third Avenue at 59th Street. …

Barneys. Madison Avenue at 61st Street. …

Bergdorf Goodman. Fifth Avenue at 58th Street. …

Macy’s Herald Square. Broadway between 34th and 35th Streets. …

Saks Fifth Avenue. Fifth Avenue at 49th Street. …

You won’t be let down I can tell you that! There’s never a better time than the Christmas Holidays to visit New York City!

Movie Theater Christmas 56′

Back in December of 1956 I was 9 years old and one early one day in December, my Sister came home from the store and woke me up and said, Mike the Cop was outside with the other kids and he was taking them all to the movie theater for a Christmas show with Christmas movies, and a chance to win prizes!

I got dressed fast as I could and ran outside and Mike was about 2 houses away with the kids they were a little older than me and they didn’t want me to go with them to the show.

But Mike said, no! he’s allowed to come with us and so I went, we walked up to the theater about 25 blocks from my house, we always walked around then so it never bothered us. The show was fun to say the least.

We saw 2 movies then the theater manager would come out on stage and we would sing holiday music as I remember, then he would hold a raffle for the prizes and whomever had the winning ticket got to take home a great prize most of the time it was a new bike! Once my Cousin won a bike at one of the shows and rode it all the way home with a big smile on his face!

Father knows Best

The Andersons
Father Knows Best

This is a story about 1950’s TV in the 1950s my family and I watched the TV show, Father Knows Best, it was a great show starring the Andersons with, Margaret, Jim, Betty, Bud, and Kathy. My friend and I had a crush on Betty [princess] and Bud was about the same age as my friend and I and we liked the same things he did. And Kathy was the youngest one [Kitten] As her Dad called her and a cutie.

The show was on on a number of years and was a radio show before that a very popular one. Their Christmas show is on very once in a while there were only 2 that I know of one where the go out to cut down their own tree like their father used to do. And then  they get snowbound and find out the true meaning of the holiday.

The other epeisode was one where an Aunt comes for a visit and gets off to a bad start with kathy and it works out fine in the end, yeah it was a great show to watch and many others at the time great TV in the 1950s
