Family Sunday

There were no malls and Sunday Blue Laws prevented stores from opening. Church, a drive in the country and an aroma of a roast in the oven wafting through the kitchen represented “Family Sundays.”

Playing outside was preferred considering we only had three television stations. Street ball or football in the backyard was our sport of choice. We didn’t venture far from home because we never wanted to be late for dinner. We dined as a family unit and sometimes even in the dinning room. Later we watched “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

Oh I miss the warmth of “Family Sunday.”
