Laverne & Shirley: "The Diner" aka "Betty Please"

You might be wondering why I'm sharing this Laverne & Shirley clip. Well, it seems now that Mom and Dad are not here, there are so many little reminders of them left behind, and this episode reminds me of my dad.

I was making hash browns this morning, and it may me think of hash blacks and "Betty, please."

Both Mom and Dad had great senses of humor. I honestly don't know what it would have been like to live in a house where things were taken too seriously. Also, Dad always had Mom or one or us girls waiting on him, getting him something from the kitchen or whatever.

Well, after this episode aired, when dad wanted something, he'd call us by saying, "Betty, please," just like Laverne does. When he was done eating and wanted someone to take his plate to the kitchen, he'd say, "Betty, please pickup." It always made us laugh.

It's little memories like these that make me smile, but also bring tears to my eyes, because I miss them both so much.
