Canned laughter floats through my home over the roar of the air conditioning.
Ever since my husband has come home from the hospital, he has watched tv to distract him from all the back, ribs, shoulder pain. Nostalgic channels seem to work the most miracles on him. You know the tv shows he watched as a kid that are rebroadcast regularly.
Oh there's Lucy and Ricky, The Brady Bunch, and even The Twilight Zone. But Mary Tyler Moore seems to work her magic the best. I love the old Dick Van Dyke show with Rob, Laura, Richie, Buddy, Sally, Mel, and of course the neighbors Jerry and Millie. But MTM also has Mary in the 70's--you know Oprah's idol, the news producer alone in the city. These two shows are back to back sometimes twice a day.
They say laughter is the best medicine and in this case, I guess it's true!
