Blog on Blob

 Have a Blob A Thon!
 There were two sequels to Steve McQueen's classic SciFi/Horror.  A delivery pizza, couple of beers and/or couple of bong hits.  Something to do on the day off when the weather is nasty.  
As a child in the '60's, living in the San Francisco Bay Area, I remember after school, my sister found this movie channel with all the good horror flicks.  The "The Two Headed Monster" and "Attack Of the Fifty Foot Woman" are two that I was our routine before dinner.

I am sure we had color TV because I remember the b/w to color transition from Kansas to Oz when we had Sharon Fahme (my sister's friend) on a sleep over and watched "The Wizard Of Oz".  Jumping from couch to love seat to couch singing the songs.  I was really afraid of the flying monkeys and the guards.

We didn't! Have color T.V., that is. In fact I never even got to watch "The Wizard of Oz". Being the youngest, I always had to be the antenna. Those bastards!

You must be joking. Maybe your parents cared about you more than mine.

I was kidding about the antenna part. My parents were the typical parents of the 50's and 60's. Children were to be seen and not heard. And being the 3rd child, I was kind of forgotten and had to rely on my own devices to amuse myself. Something that has continued to this day!

Yeah. I actually was going to type all the same in. Our TV was in the rumbus room that was on the lower level of our brand new split level. What they now call a family room, but difference being the only family that went there was me and my sister to watch our TV. It was there or outside unsupervised for countless hours. Many adventures outside until we could hear our mom yell for us. Every time my mom yelled for me, the kids would say "that's your mom! She sounds real mean!" Every place we ever lived in the TV was in a separate area and NOT the living room. Only later in life did we actually sit from time to time with the parents to watch anything together.
Yep I was going to type that all, but thought I'd just be whining.
