That and Rainforest Cafe are the highlight of our GLC trips.
I'd be up for GLC instead......or even for Southland....I'm not too picky

Sanders Hot Fudge is the most wonderful food in the entire world, and I just found a jar in the back of my pantry!!

DH graduated from Catholic Central in 1972 and MSU in 1976.. I graduated from Trenton High School in 1976 and UMD in 1983.

Also visited the Rotunda Christmas decorations until it burned. Then there were some animatronic decorations at a band shell in Lincoln Park that we started going to . Hudson's 7th floor was the best at Christmas.
they still sell sanders hot fudge...
and vernors.....i don't think i've ever met someone not from michigan who can stand the stuff....my dad never drank anything else...

you're right i think - the rotunda burned down..

sir graves just barely is ringing a small chime in my head...

as for lou gordon - he always seemed angry about everything....not sure about what..
i think my parents must have watched it, as it certainly wasn't me - but i do remember it being on...

your husband is a year older than i am (thank god somebody is)...
i graduated from kingswood (cranbrook) in 73...


by the way, whenever we had visitors, relatives or my father's business associates, we would always go to see the ford factory - which at that time meant both the steel and assembly plants - i remember how very hot the steel factory was.....i don't remember when it was that it was shut down...but the assembly plant continued on for a long time..
is it still open for visitors?...it was near greenfield village...

Also the 4:00 movie. I remember watching Roots on the 4:00 movie, I was too young to stay up late and watch it when it was on prime time.
I remember running home from school for the four o'clock movie for monster week!
Bill Kennedy and Rita Bell... it meant I was home in bed eating cinnamon toast and vernors, becuase we all know that is the only way to get better!

Sir Graves and the Ghoul. That song from Sir Graves during the birthday announcements "You've past your prime, getting grumpy and old..."

FYI, I don't know how many Sanders stores are still around, but there is still one at Macomb Mall connected to the Sears. The last time we went there though it had just closed. I wanted to get DD a hot fudge cream puff just like I used to get when I was a kid. We used to go to the Sanders store in Lincoln Park back then - the one in the strip mall that was connected to Sears. Does anyone know if that one still exists? I haven't been over there in 20 years.

Yes, I remember Lou Gordon being angry a lot..


OK, remember John Kelly and Marilynn Turner? When she was the weather girl for channel 4, she used to **gasp** every time she took a breath, you thought she was going to pass out...

I remember that strip mall with Sears..you would walk in the door and the smell of roasted cashews would just about knock you over. I thought I was "up town" if I got to buy something at Winkelman's...

I have been told on another thread that the Sander's store on Outer Drive and Michigan Avenue in Dearborn was still open. I get my jars in a care package or for Christmas from my DILs every year. I think they got it from Krogers. Sander's also has a website if you really need it.

I don't know if any Sanders still exist, but I got my first job at the Sanders at Eastland Mall. I worked there during my senior year in high school, as well as my freshman year of college while I went to Wayne State. It was a blast working there - we ate so much it's ridiculous!

I worked at the Sander's at Wonderland Mall in Livonia for a short time when I was about 19 or 20....now Wonderland doesn't even exist anymore.

DH went to WS, too. Around 1976-1978, I think. While going to school, he worked at Mt. Carmel as a janitor, and the ladies that he worked with used to love to feed him "soul food"-raccoon, possum, ick, ick, ick..he would eat anything and they would just laugh at him...

I have been to the Sander's in Southland Mall, don't know if it's still there or not..

Kind of off topic, but do any of you listen to Dick Purtan? Does Coleman Young still call in? (Obviously an actor since the real Coleman Young is dead, but oh, how funny those calls were).

We don't get WOMC up here.
