Peanut Gallery — Patty Duke

My mom used to work at Rosaurs on Appleway Anna was a regular customer there and my mom said she was so nice, I always hoped when I was in there one day I'd run into her, but never did. I used to watch Patty Duke re-runs on Nick at Night when I was younger, but now Nick at Night runs stuff like the Cosby show and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air stuff from when I was a kid.


DFO: One of the joys of being my age (almost 56) is that I remember watching "The Patty Duke Show" in real time. The family would gather around the boob tube for her show and numerous other sitcoms and variety show including, of course, "The Ed Sullivan Show," where I was blown away by girls screaming and passing out while The Beatles sang in real time. My g-g-generation has wonderful memories to share. BTW, Bre's right about Anna Pearce being a wonderful woman. I've run into her several times through her 15 years here. Always gracious. Always tiny.
