sunday night dinner: march 11, 2012 — lover come back

i will say dad cooked a fabulous dinner of steak, baked potatoes, broccoli and of course cole slaw but the only pick of this truly yummy meal i got was…….

now that's a steak


why because while dad was cooking up a storm, mom and i became heavily distracted by the 1960s “raunchy” comedy “lover come back.”  a classic doris day pic of her refusing to give it up till she’s got a ring on her finger plot.  something about doris day really irks me perhaps it was the fact she sang songs like “how much is that doggie in the window”  or her i’m a tease but too whole-some to know what a tease is characters.  but i will give her this, paired up with the oh so gay rock hudson, these comedies are highly cleaver and i’m sure quite scandalous for the era.  even dad wanted to know the out come as we sat down to eat.
