I'm taking off for the Great White North later on today to be reunited with my family—I'm so happy I could just spit! To celebrate this occasion, how about a pair of Happy Days bubblegum cards? These were found in an old worn out box that contained a bunch of my old belongings from back in the day. I'm talking about 1976, kids. I was 7 years old at the time and it seemed like Happy Days was the biggest thing on TV. Our family watched that show like it was going out of style. And The Fonz? Man, he was the shiz-nit, wasn't he? Everyone loved him and wanted to be like him. Well, at least in my neck of the woods. I remember kids in my grade school acting out Fonzerelli poses and quoting signature lines from the show. This and Welcome Back Kotter. We always gravitated to those rebellious types, those who were "on the fringe", I guess you could say.
For seconds, here's another bubblegum card featuring Potsie and the show's Everyman, Richie Cunningham:
I'm so excited to see my family! Driving up tonight and coming back on the 4th (that's always fun). Have a great weekend and a fantastic 4th of July! See ya soon.
