      Despite entertaining millions of Americans as June Cleaver, she was also well respected for her role in Airplane where she translated jive for millions of ignorant white Americans.

              I loved June! Thanks for the clip.

              June Cleaver, Margaret Anderson ( Jane Wyatt from Father Knows Best) and Donna Stone ( Donna Reed Show) are my heroes. My idea of wife and mother …although it's a bitch doing the housework in a shirtwaist, heels and pearls- they set my standard. Of course, I watched these in RERUNS in the late 1960's :) but I still believe they were perfect. I liked Danny Thomas's new wife Kathy (Marjorie Lord) on Make Room for Daddy too…but she wasn't typical and I thought being married to an entertainer wasn't normal or desirable- so I wasn't into her as a pattern for my future :).

              When I was younger I wanted to be the fun  Margie Albright ( Gale Storm– who lived in a hotel in New York City with her widowed Dad on My Little Margie), the beautiful  Mary Stone ( Shelly Fabres) and the fussy Betty Anderson ( Elinor Donahue) until THAT GIRL premiered ..then all I wanted was an apartment in the city, cute, mod outfits, a jet-black flip hairdo,GIGANTIC eyelashes and a handsome boyfriend named Donald. I thought Marlo Thomas was the perfect girl and I desperately wanted  a room that could be closed off by white shutters ( INSIDE an apartment— how glam !).

              Oh, the memories.

                I know how you feel.  Those homemakers were the best.  In a home life that most of us had, it was a drream to be like them. but I did not like pearls.  I loved  sweater sets, (never had one)  and those house dresses with crinolines .  She always knew (June) how to run interference with the Beav and Wally when speaking to good old Ward.  Did we know ever what he did for a living?  looked like he sold insurance or fuller brushes.

                 

                Make Room for Daddy, I adorded and wanted to look like Angela Cartright.  So many good memories that helped so many of us out.  My sister was ten years my senior, and my mother 30 years my senior, so seeing a different side of mom's and yes when Marlo Thomas hit the scene (same as Mary Tyler Moor)  I was overwhelmed in my own domestic diva'ness.

                  "are you tired?  run down?  do you poop out at parties?  if so  one spoonful of VitaVegavegamin will give you the much needed boost (ahhhh)  its delishus too!   cut…..take two……cut take three…..4 5 6 etc.

                  Hic!

                  I also remember     "Elinor Donahue, Billy Gray and Loren Shafen (cuse spelling)  it is soooo interesting in how back then in the early days of TV I can remember  ad jingles, introductions to the show, and often the lyrics and tune for the songs which were almost like full time songs.

                  I doubt I could hum or sing words (if any) from modern TV shows.

                          I DO love Lucy…but she married Ricky and you know how I feel about people in the entertainment industry…so, no.

                          Although, I think I could suspend my usual distaste for that crowd for a teensy bit…what I wouldn't give to be Megan on Mad Men !  [just for last night…I'm certain she will be in a heap of hurt soon and I don't need any of THAT].
