Punky

15 Sep

Growing up, we were a one television household.  DVR and TiVo had yet to arrive and cable television was a luxury only some could afford.  For the rest of us, there was one night a week that was worth fighting for:  Sunday night television.  The problem we had in our household was that I had parents that also enjoyed Sunday night television.  NFL football has always been a top priority for my father and Andy Rooney and the 60 minutes gang were also a parental favorite.  Sunday night competition was tough.  However, I did everything in my elementary age power to persuade a few minutes of Punky Brewster.  Sometimes I just had to hope and pray for 60 Minutes re-runs.  Other times, it came down to hoping and praying the Miami Dolphins didn’t go into overtime.  Then there were the times I settled for catching the 90 seconds slots while the other shows were on a commercial break.  Punky was a powerful force and I couldn’t wait to see what she and her faithful dog, Brandon, were up to each week.

I guess some things never change.  My inner six-year old heart skipped a beat when I saw Soleil and her new sidekicks on one of the covers of Baby Couture’s Magazine’s 10 year Anniversary edition.

    You realize, one TV was by design!! It didn’t hurt you to watch 60 Minutes and Andy Rooney!
