The Brady Bunch Turns 40
Forty years ago on this date, The Brady Bunch debuted on television. Whether or not you enjoy (or enjoyed) the show, you cannot deny it's enduring popularity! I DID enjoy the show - and I happen to be the same age as Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia. She was the oldest, and I am the youngest, but still - three sisters.
You knew this was coming, right? I also bought the book:
I haven't purchased Maureen's book "Here's The Story", but I do believe I would enjoy reading it.
Look at this sweet photo of Florence Henderson, below. It's from an article in Life magazine that was published almost exactly 15 years prior to the Brady Bunch premiere. The article was about a trip she took back to visit family in Owensboro, Kentucky , before appearing on Broadway in "Fanny". She turned 75 this year, still looks fabulous, and all I can say is "Way to go, Florence!" Still going strong, still as fabulous as ever.
I loved the whole cast, and it was a fun show to watch when I was growing up.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen a rerun in years - we don't get TV Land.
