So in 24 episodes I’ve been late twice. I am really sorry about that folks, really I am but when you consider I’ve got a 92% on-time rate I feel it’s okay. Not that I plan on making a habit of this. I’m really not planning on that. I just got caught up in the 4th of July celebrations last night and didn’t prepare for the holiday by setting all of this up earlier. I promise I’ll be better about it in the future.
So this week we’ve got another episode of daily life in the 70’s. Mostly we’re just hanging out waiting for something to happen. Unfortunately what happened wasn’t good. Mom’s dad (Grampa Bob) was involved in a fairly bad accident that sent him, his wife and her daughter to the hospital. Just bad roads and bad luck. I’m sure those of you who knew Mom then know of the accident and know that everyone involved pretty much recovered. Mat and I don’t know what the long-term effects were on Charlotte and her daughter because Grampa’s marriage to her ended many years ago but we do know that at 82 years old Grampa Bob is still very active and doesn’t seem to have any ill effects.
So go ahead and give this one a listen and don’t forget to support the podcast by shopping at Amazon through our link on the sidebar to the right or in the menu below. Talk to you all next week, it’ll be on time too, I promise!
February 25, 1978 – March 4, 1978
Mom spent a lot of time hanging out with friends. Our white-trash heritage is confirmed with Fried Bologna Sandwiches and Mom talked a lot about getting a waterbed. We find out that Captain Kangaroo is a really old show, a friend spent a lot on a new stereo, Mom planned on getting a perm and found out she got a chance to interview with the phone company. This episode ends with some bad news.
