Thank Goodness It's Friday!!!

Tonight Mr. D and I have a home cooked dinner and movie night planned (it's my turn to pick the rental); I'm so excited to be watching a movie rather than wishing there was something halfway decent to watch on TV!

With the lack of quality TV programs on Friday night, I always think back to my childhood. Monday through Thursday evenings were spent finishing homework, at swim practice, and at sewing lessons. Our extracurricular activities left little time for time in front of the television (thank you Momma!). Everything changed when Friday rolled around as the family gathered in front of the TV, with snacks in hand, to watch ABC's TGIF line up (circa late 80's - mid 90's). Remember Perfect Strangers, Full House, Mr. Belvedere, Family Matters, Dinosaurs, Boy Meets World, Step by Step, Sister Sister, Hangin' With Mr. Cooper, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch?

So many good times and great memories- which show was your favorite TGIF program (mine was a toss up between Full House, Boy Meets World, and Step by Step!)?

  1. Oh yeah! My brother hated Dinosaurs because one of the characters was named Earl. Of course Topanga was a favorite, had curly hair just like you. Remember the bullies, one of them played in My Name is Earl as his brother. Friday had a great lineup in those years. Always good memories.

    With all my love,


  2. LOVED ABC's TGIF! Particularly Full House, Family Matters and Boy Meets World, although I may be a bit biased towards Boy Meets World because our ages paralleled each other (isn't it great when that happens? It's like the show was meant for you)!


I LOVE your comments, and read them all! Thank you! :)
