Demond Wilson and Redd Foxx
I got my love for Westerns and Classic Television from my dad. I’m 100 percent sure he looks down from Heaven, appreciative of how I’ve carried on his love and passion for classic tv and westerns!
Like my mom, he died way, way too young but not a day goes by that I don’t think of both of them – especially when I watch movies or television shows we enjoyed together.
Growing up, we watched these shows religiously – as in every single time they were on:
- Sanford and Son
- Perry Mason
- Abbott and Costello (in absolutely anything)
- The Big Valley
- The Rockford Files
We had Sanford and Son on so often we memorized every single episode. It is, without a doubt, one of the funniest, sharpest, most consistently wonderful series ever on television. The cast was flawless and it simply never missed a beat. One of the coolest things about Sanford and Son is the fact that it is as hilarious today as it was then.
As we’re closing in on Thanksgiving, I thought these adorable pictures would be perfect for today’s pictures of the day.
