Anybody remember the old Danny Thomas show, it is on MeTV.

I would have been the age of little Linda.

The role of women was so different back then.

It sometimes hard to watch these old shows with modern eyes.

It is fun to see all the old stars when they were younger.

Danny's wife Kathy must have a closet the size of Texas.

I have never seen her wear the same dress twice.

2. The first wife died from cancer I think.

The older daughter was wrote off the show.

I don't remember the first wife.

I wouldn't have put up with Danny's crap.

7. i read something about this recently and thought i'd google it

it's from st. jude's website:
"More than 70 years ago, Danny Thomas, then a struggling young entertainer with a baby on the way, visited a Detroit church and was so moved during the Mass, he placed his last $7 in the collection box. When he realized what he'd done, Danny prayed for a way to pay the looming hospital bills. The next day, he was offered a small part that would pay 10 times the amount he'd given to the church. Danny had experienced the power of prayer.

"Two years later, Danny had achieved moderate acting success in Detroit, but he was struggling to take his career to the next level. Once again, he turned to the church. Praying to St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes, Danny asked the saint to "help me find my way in life, and I will build you a shrine."

"His career took a turn for the better, and soon he moved his family to Chicago to pursue career offers. A few years later, at another turning point in his life, Danny visited a church and remembered his pledge to St. Jude. Again he prayed to St. Jude and repeated his pledge to build a shrine to the saint if he would show him the way.

8. Danny was smoking on the show.

It so strange to see it now.

I wonder did the actors really smoke or only for the show.
