An old joke from Boy’s Life magazine back when I was reading it:
Did you hear about the snake charmer who married a funeral director? The towels in their bathroom say “Hiss” and Hearse.”
When I think “his” and “hers,” naturally I think of the late 70’s-early 80’s TV show Hart To Hart, with Robert Wagner, Stefanie Powers, and Lionel Stander. Remember at the open, they had the two of them driving side-by-side in his-and-hers cars?
I heard they’re looking into the death of Wagner’s wife, Natalie Wood, again, and again he’s a person of interest. I think it was a terrible accident, nothing more.
Here’s one of the weirdest things I can think of: his-and-hers bathtubs.
There’s a company in Los Angeles called His & Her Hair that specializes in hair extensions, wigs and toupees “for men and women with style.” Only in LA… There are probably many other companies like this one, not to mention things like The Hair Club For Men. I’ll bet they even opened one in Russia after the Communist Party fell in the early 90’s. You know who would have been a perfect person to be in charge of it? Mikhail Gorbachev!
Wonder if his wife called him “Spot”? Anyway…
I feel sorry for Christopher Knight, who was Bobby on The Brady Bunch. Now he apears in commercials for a hair-restoration company. That’s got to be a big come-down for him.
Speaking of LA and The Brady Bunch (we were, sort of), Eve Plumb, who played Jan, the middle daughter, bought herself a house on the beach in Malibu for $55,000 back when the show was running, and sold it a couple of years ago for $3.9 million. She bought it in 1969 when she was eleven. Wow, cute and smart. That’s another one of those “Ginger or Mary Ann?” questions, “Marcia or Jan?” I spent a lot of Friday nights with both of them in the 70’s, which should tell you something about my social life in high school.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now, here are Florence Henderson (who played Carol Brady, as it happens) and Phil Hayes for the 1959 Oldsmobiles!
I swear, that was a total coincidence…
