(I can't seem to get Blogger to embed the youtube video today - this is where it is. If you are like me - you already have the song embedded in your mind!)

To commemorate let us away to Helen Hartman's Tempus Fridgadarius (Yes I am aware I may not spell it the same way each time, we're traveling in time so I have to assume that at some point one of you does something that messes with the language and therefore creates that change, it cannot be that Helen is too lazy to look up how she spells it every time!)
|Mom did you buy that fridge so you could store food in case you have MORE kids? |
No, honey, I bought the extra large fridge so your dad could have a place to cool off so we WON'T have more kids!
1962 - This was the cover of Ladies Home Journal Oct 1962 Camelot was still a fantasy -
|Did you read the article titles? Variations on themes we still wonder about today!|
|Rewarding and uncrowded accounting field? Who could resist?|
But most advertisers didn't seem to know it yet -
|Yes, in 1962 advertisers thought women dreamed of only two things - lovely hands and sparkling dishes! Personally, I think the lady in the ad is wishing for that glass to be filled with something else that's bubbly and sparkling.|
A more common job for women was
|Personally, I think AVON was and is brilliant in so many ways but I think that lady is way too enchanted by that bottle.|
Those silly gals back then, so easily
medicated soothed by things like pills talcum powder!
|More lastingly than costly cologne. Ah, now we know why the Avon customer was so fascinated, apparently cologne was a rare and costly treat back then. But who needed it when one's talc would cling more lovingly?|
Kinda makes ya want to stay back in those days of soap and rose scents, right?
Well, let Helen dissuade you of that right now. It wasn't all dishes and deadend jobs for ladies then, you know. Housewives in 1962 had kids to feed and these kids had high expectations!
|Beans N Wieners, y'all. On real plates with real forks, because Mama needs her dish washing wish fix!|
No wonder housewives back then were just about ready to break out of their mold!
|They had to break out of their mold - these recipes were killing them, not the food, the having to wrestle down their families to force them to eat this stuff!|
Whew, all this has Helen's head spinning! Cue the Carson music and let's head back to 2012 - I sure hope you all behaved back then and didn't make a faux pas that might mess with Helen's spelling here in the future. If you find any so-called misstakes, you only have yourselfs to blame!
