A One a And a Two a...

I can't believe I'm goin' to admit this but...
I love to watch old re-runs of the Lawrence Welk Show. There! I said it!

(I can hear ya laughin')



Yep, its true. When I was young, I would roll my eyes when my daddy had it on; now I look forward to 7:00 Saturday evenins' on PBS.


Is it because it was a time when television shows were simple, clean and fun? Or because I get the biggest kick out of the gals' spit curl hairdos and the fellers' brightly colored polyester leisure suits they wore? The answer is, both.


We have all become so desensitized to the vulgarity, sex and violence on the tube these days, haven't we? When we see a T.V. show like The Walton's or a Charles Bronson movie, we scoff at how unbelievably lame they are.


Man, I sound like an old fart, but I can't help it. I flip through the hundreds of channels and see our values and morals flyin' right out the window and its acceptable and "cool."


So if I have the choice between The Lawrence Welk Show or MTV's Sex... With Mom and Dad, I'm goin' with Larry.
Wunnerful, Wunnerful.

Hi-
I find my way to you via Farmhouse Blessings. I too love Lawrence Welk...even our kids like watching sometimes. He is from our great state! I also love the Waltons and Little House on the Prairie...they are shows we can watch with our children! Anyway, I enjoyed reading through your blog. Stop in and visit me sometime.

Amen, Sister...
Bring back the morals and values.
I think many of us or gettin' on our knees more and more on the behalf of lost values in many areas in the country.
How innocence is lost so quickly and those innocent are targeted by those shows like you mentioned on MTV and others.
Ok, I'll stop. This could get long.

Anyway, loved this post.
thanks
