Sunday Wander

This was part of every Sunday morning at our house as long as we weren't being dragged off to Sunday School and church.



Wonderama.

Hope you enjoy while I'm dragged off to buy groceries, etc.

  5. Oh, I LOVED that show! Every Sunday!! We were Catholic, so I could go to church the night before, or at 11 or noon or 5:30...

    ::sigh::

    What made you think of it today?

  6. I don't remember this show at all!

    My brother and I always started Monopoly games on Sunday mornings . . . hoping that our parents wouldn't wake up in time to go to church. (But they almost always did. Sigh.)

  15. So NOW I need to tell you more than you really want to know about me (I feel certain).

    I watched the video today (not yesterday, when I commented on it).

    I had a sensory experience of hearing his voice that was like a jolt throughout my body... such a strongly evocative memory of well-being and fun and... hard to say what else.

    Laughed like hell at "who's the president?"

    "Nixon?" I invented a whole backstory for that kid based on the way he said, "Nixon?"

    When I saw that the grand prize was a bicycle, I wept.

    And then I said to myself, "What the HELl is that about?"

    I remember begging my parents to take me to see Wonderama. And I remember my mom hating the show. Not simply not liking it, or not preferring it, but hating it. And it reminded me that... she hated lots of the stuff I loved as a kid. I believe she used the word "pervert" about this particular host. I also remember her hating lots of my friends.

    I think mom had a problem.

    There. Told you.

  16. I never saw that show, maybe it's a regional thing.

    Mr. Pop worked at this computer all day Sunday so I just vegged out watching mindless stuff on tv. It was kind of fun just lazing about and not wondering what kind of shit our president was up to as he tried to destroy our country. Haven't felt like this in eight years.

  17. Wonderama! The perfect antidote after sitting through a Catholic mass for an hour with my parents. I could not rush them home fast enough!

  18. I watched this with the sound off, but all it would take is some French dubbed descriptions of the natural habitat of boa constrictors and Chopin in the background to become an ironic art film.
