Tuesday, November 9th, 1976

Was greatly harassed today. 

Alone with Mona in Study Hall (sorta).

Research booklet turned my FF ideas to EC.

WE get out early on Thursday. In fact, got out early today as we somehow ended up with no teacher for 6th period! Missed the Rosedale bus.


Both M*A*S*H and ONE DAY AT A TIME were reaffirmed as my two favorite programs.

NOTES: Neither M*A*S*H nor ONE DAY AT A TIME holds up particularly well these days in my opinion. Doesn't change the fact that they were great in their day. Just means that the timeliness that gave them both their something special means that they could never achieve that timelessness that shows like THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW still retain. 

Unfortunately this is a problem with many of the series in the 1970's that tried for "relevance." ALL IN THE FAMILY, CHICO & THE MAN, SANFORD AND SON and a score of other series suffer that same fate.
