At What Point in Your Life Do You Say . . .

“Fuck it. I’m not putting on shoes or pants just to go to Walmarts.”

I have a new 2nd favorite blog (after my own): “People of Walmart”.  Thanks, Debbie.

Why Can’t We All Just ‘Search for Tomorrow’?

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010


The worse thing about starting kindergarten was not being able to sit on the ‘sofa’ with my Mom for 15 minutes every weekday around noon to watch “Search for Tomorrow”. I felt bad about that. I’m sure she did too.

“Search for Tomorrow” was the longest running soap opera on American television. It started airing on Monday, September 3, 1951 and continued until the final episode on Friday, December 26, 1986. That’s over 35-years – 9,130 episodes. And what were the final lines – on the final show – on that day after Christmas, 1986? “Joanne Tate” the show’s star for its entire run, is asked, “What are you searching for, Joanne?” Her reply? “Tomorrow.” (MUSIC UP- FADE TO BLACK ).

It hardly seemed worth the wait. But I’ll never think about that dumb show without remembering sitting on our sofa with my Mom over a half-century ago.
