    I blame GamerGirl for this link. While she pointed out the celery art, I noticed this section about the Price is Right. It is like a Time Machine back to the look of the 1970s :)

    LOL. Funny stuff. That was a treat during school vacations - to watch TPIR at 11 before lunch.

    Exactly.

    When I was kid I did like the TPIR, and being able to watch was a real treat because it meant there was no school for whatever reason (summer/holiday break, snow day, sick day, etc).

    That was pretty funny. He had some good lines in there.

    While your there, check the page he did on the 1973 Sears catalog. Lol

    The best lileks pages are the gallery of regrettable food and the gobbler.

    Great link.

    I watched that show as a youngster but I don't remember those tight sweaters and short skirts.
