I miss the Seventies…

…on a regular basis and with alarming frequency


“Where the hell are my hookers?”

For instance when I see Broadway Joe wearing his pimpin’ big mink coat. That’s when it all comes back to me — the dry look, curly perms, leisure suits, ABBA.

And then I really miss the Seventies.

  1. Ahhh yes! I miss them, too… Sunday nights alternating between Mc Millan & Wife, Colombo and McCloud, while Nancy Walker peddled Bounty paper towels (“The quicker picker-upper”). In fact, I believe I spent most of the 70’s in front of TV, surrounded by the warmth of macrame plant hangers, shag rugs, burnt orange, avocado green and harvest gold tones… and plenty of cigarette smoke… I DO miss them…

  2. Although I was mostly unconscious and swaddled in diapers for part of the 70s – an occurrence that will undoubtedly repeat itself in another 30 years, every Tuesday after bingo night at the Elks Lodge – I, too, miss the 70s. Who doesn’t love a polyester paisley number that clings to every orifice of our flabby untoned bodies and sagging non-existent breasts?

    Incidentally, Joe Namath bears a striking resemblance to Maury Povitch in his most recent pic. They must have the same stylist.

    Go Hawks!

  3. Kind of don’t remember the Seventies, too much beer followed by Jack and maybe soe herbal thingies. I don’t know. Joe Willie came out this weekend saying he had problems after being concussed a few times.Watching the Super Bowl and wondering why. 43 to 8 Seattle.

  4. Then you must see the movie ‘American Hustle.’ Plunging necklines, bad comb-overs, and 70’s perms galore…
