It's only on Cable TV & I'm the only person amongst my local pals who has cable. So, every sunday evening, I host a dinner where people bring food & I generally roast a chicken. We shovel in the food & then sit up & watch it.
This reminds me of a slightly Bittersweet Scenario from my early childhood.
When I was about three, TV finally arrived in Australia even though it had been going for centuries Elsewhere. My father had a business that sold TVs. So we got the first TV in the street. You can see where this story is going from a mile off, can't you?
For a short while, I was the most popular girl in the street. Every early evening, our living room was packed to the back gills with local boys & girls desperately awaiting the next instalment of 'The Mickey Mouse Club'. Even though I was three, I sensed it wasn't going to last. One by one, the kids fell away as their own families purchased the Beloved Box. Soon it was just me.
Hopefully, when 'Mad Men' finishes, my friends won't disappear. Maybe they'll be another compelling series on cable that will prolong our weekly dinners.
Last night's episode was a Real Corker. We all sat & cheered when Betty shoved it up Lying Cheating Don & chucked him out of the house. We never thought she had it in her.
I hope you like my New Decorating Touch, photographed at last's week's 'Mad Men Dinner'. I've had the large statue of The Blessed Virgin, who sadly is missing both hands, for almost two decades. She was in storage for a couple of years, but now She's Back looking over a couple of Genuine & Not-So Genuine Wonder Woman dolls in the kitchen. In case you're wondering who the Young Man on the left is, it's Tyler, my wonderful step-son.
Can't wait for next week's episode.
I wonder What Betty Will Do Next?
