FAVORITE TV DADS

They solved sibling disputes, dispensed wisdom, and were pillars of the community. These were our favorite fictional dads, the ones we watched on the small screen while we were growing up. • For 203 episodes, Michael Landon played the pioneer Charles Ingalls, loosely based on the Little House series of books penned by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Little House on the Prairie aired from 1974 to 1982, and chronicled the family’s life on their Walnut Grove, Minnesota farm in the 1870s and 1880s. The real-life Charles loved traveling and moved his family six times. In addition to portraying Ingalls, Landon directed over 40% of the episodes. Charles Ingalls holds the #4 spot on the TV Guide list of the greatest TV dads.

• The model dad of the 1950s was Jim Anderson, a salesman and manager of the General Insurance Company. Robert Young portrayed Jim for 203 episodes beginning in 1954 in Father Knows Best, a program with the ideal family and a moral lesson each week. Jim was the husband of housewife Margaret and father to Betty, Bud, and Kathy. The show was not successful its first season and was cancelled. CBS was inundated with viewers’ protest letters, and the series was picked up by NBC, who moved it to an earlier, family-friendly time slot, where it remained for the next five years. turn the page for more

• Another classic 1950s dad was Ward Cleaver, head of the family on Leave it to Beaver, husband of June and father of Wally and Theodore (the Beaver). Ward was a native of Shaker Heights, Ohio, who graduated from State College in Philosophy and served in World War II as a Seabee. During the series’ duration from 1957 to 1963, Ward was most frequently seen in his business suit and white shirt, toting his briefcase to his job at the trust company, although he drove his Plymouth Fury to Mayfield’s country club golf course on the weekends. In real life, actor Hugh Beaumont was a licensed Methodist preacher, who opted for a career in show business. After retiring, he began a new career as a Christmas tree farmer in Minnesota. • Baby boomers will remember the trials and tribulations of single parenthood from the longrunning series, My Three Sons. Steven Douglas ranks #7 on TV Guide’s list of the greatest TV dads. Played by actor Fred McMurray from 1960 to 1972, Steve was a widowed aeronautical engineer raising three boys on his own, assisted by cranky Uncle Charlie. MacMurray was the only cast member to appear in every one of the series’ 380 episodes. The sons changed over the years, with some growing up and moving away and others being adopted, and the addition of triplet boys to one son’s family in keeping with the “three sons” theme. • Single dad Andy Taylor served as the sheriff and justice of the peace of Mayberry, North Carolina on CBS from 1960 to 1968 on The Andy Griffith Show. Fans will remember the opening credits

that featured Andy and son Opie strolling down a country lane, fishing poles in hand, to a whistled tune called “The Fishing Hole.” Andy put up with his harebrained deputy Barney Fife, who also happened to be his cousin. Around town, Andy played checkers at Floyd’s Barber Shop, visited Gomer Pyle and his cousin Goober down at the filling station, and romanced schoolteacher Helen Crump. At home, he enlisted the help of his Aunt Bee for household chores and assistance with Opie (played by Ron Howard, who went on to movie directing fame.) • The old West had its own version of the single dad with Ben Cartwright, owner of the 600,000-acre Ponderosa Ranch on the shores of Nevada’s Lake Tahoe. Bonanza endured 14 seasons from 1959 to 1973, frequently ranking as TV’s number one program. Ben was widowed three times, with one son from each marriage – Adam, Hoss, and Little Joe. His first wife was from Boston, where Ben had been a seaman and later a shop owner specializing in supplies for merchant vessels. Newly widowed, he and Adam moved out West. Ben ranks #2 on TV Guide’s list of greatest TV dads. • It wasn’t the plan for Eight is Enough’s Tom Bradford to be a single dad. The series started out in 1977 with actress Diana Hyland starring as his wife, but Hyland fell seriously ill after taping just four episodes, and passed away 12 days after the first episode aired. Tom remarried a schoolteacher during the series’ second season. Tom was a columnist for a Sacramento newspaper, a storyline based on the real life of syndicated columnist Thomas Braden, a father of eight children who

In the world of beauty, Mary Kay is a household name. How much do you know about this talented and successful entrepreneur? Follow along and see! • Texan-born Mary Kathlyn Wagner married Ben Rogers at age 17, and the couple had three children before he headed off to the service during World War II. While Rogers was away, Mary Kay sold books door-to-door, amassing sales of $25,000 in just six months. When he returned in 1945, the couple divorced. She supported herself and her children by working for Stanley Home Products, conducting home demonstration parties. • In 1952, Mary Kay left Stanley, taking a position with the World Gift Company as its national training director. After nearly a decade with World Gift, she bid for a promotion, but was passed over in favor of a man she herself had trained. She resigned in protest, with plans to write a book that would help women succeed in business. That book became the business plan for her own dream company. • The year 1963 was an eventful one for Mary Kay, beginning with a new marriage at age 45. She then took her $5,000 savings and leased a 500-square-foot storefront in Dallas. She bought skin care formulas from a tanner who had created them while working on hides. Her products were packaged in her favorite pastel pink. Tragedy struck a month before the scheduled store opening, when her new husband died of a heart attack, just one month into their marriage. Mary Kay’s 20-year-old son stepped in to help launch the business. • The Dallas store opened with nine salespeople. It generated a profit its first year, and by the end of the second year had sold nearly $1 million worth of products. In 1968, the company went public. Mary Kay offered her employees incentive programs for their home demonstrations, including vacations, jewelry, and automobiles. Known for her love of the color pink, beginning in 1969, Mary Kay began giving pink Cadillacs to her top sales performers. The first cars were painted the color of one of her products, a shade of blush called Mountain Laurel. Twenty-five years later she had awarded 7,000 cars with a value of $100 million. The particular shade of pink used to paint the cars belongs exclusively to Mary Kay, Inc. and is not available to other customers. A General Motors dealer will not repaint any outside vehicle Mary Kay’s pink. GM estimates they have produced more than 100,000 pink Cadillacs for Mary Kay. • Mary Kay became the author of three best-sellers along her journey. The third book You Can Have It All, published in 1995, achieved best-seller status just days after its launch. • From humble beginnings of nine salespeople, Mary Kay representatives now number more than 2.4 million. From second-year sales of $1 million, worldwide sales in more than 35 markets are close to $3 billion annually. Fortune magazine has included Mary Kay, Inc. on its list of “The 100 Best Companies to Work for in America” and “The Most Admired Corporations in America.” Mary Kay was a devoted fundraiser for charities, establishing foundations to combat domestic violence and to fund cancer research.

OLD DOG NEW TRICKS

Pet Bits Q: My 8-year-old Golden Doodle has gotten bigger than my 5-year-old Shiba Inu. He doesn’t bite the Shiba, but kind of nibbles at her, and even tries to haul her around by her collar. Sometimes he even does this at night, so I crate him. Is there anything I can do curb this behavior? - D.S., Cyberspace A: “Your Golden is an adolescent, and like all adolescents everywhere, he thinks he knows everything and his judgment is terrible,” says Marjie Alonso, IAABC executive director and Boston, MAbased dog behavior consultant. “Crating the dog overnight is a very good idea as a management tool. The more often you allow your dog to practice this behavior, the more often you’ll see it, and better he’ll become at it. “If you haven’t done so already, enroll your dog in a positive reinforcement dog training class where you can focus on learning simple skills you can employ at home like ‘sit,’‘stay’ and ‘down’ to prevent the Golden from tormenting the Shiba. Also offer lots of play time, so your young Golden has an appropriate outlet for all that energy.”

wrote a book about his parenting adventures.

• Another widower, magazine publisher Tom Corbett, was kept busy raising his six-year-old son on The Courtship of Eddie’s Father. Eddie occupied his days scheming to find the ideal wife for his dad. Bill Bixby starred as Corbett during Courtship’s run from 1969 to 1972, moving up to direct eight episodes. When Bixby had a disagreement with the producer over the direction of the show, it was cancelled after its third season.

• It was the story of a man named Brady from 1969 to 1974. Mike Brady, that is – architect and father of three sons, who married Carol, mother of three daughters, to form one of America’s favorite blended families. The program was created by producer Sherwood Schwartz after he read a newspaper article in the late ‘60s stating

that nearly 30% of families had a least one child from a previous marriage. More than 450 girls and boys were interviewed by the producer before narrowing the number down to the six Brady children. Although Mike was considered one of TV’s greatest dads (#14 on the TV Guide list), in actuality, actor Robert Reed strongly disliked the role and was difficult to work with on the set. He had been trained as a Shakespearean actor at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and viewed the show as a silly sitcom and beneath his acting abilities. However, Reed genuinely liked his co-stars and would even take them on trips during their summer break. The storylines were drawn from the producer’s own family as well as those of the cast members. It must have seemed very realistic to many viewers, as fan mail from children frequently arrived, asking if they could live with the Brady family, due to troubles within their own families.

Family reunions are fun and worthwhile. Being together with many generations is a wonderful experience. Often, these gatherings are highly scheduled, but remember to set aside time -- and a designated place -- to simply sit and talk. Here are some other great family reunion tips from our readers.

SASKATCHEWAN PRAIRIE WHEAT PUDDING 3/4 CUP WHEAT KERNELS (FROM A HEALTH FOOD STORE OR AN ORGANIC FARMER) (SOAK THE KERNELS OVERNIGHT.) COOK THE KERNELS AT A SIMMER FOR 2 HOURS OR UNTIL SOFT. COOL IN A COLANDER.

◆ T-shirts are fun for reunion memorabilia, but we also

did water bottle koozies this year, and they were a big hit. You can write your name in permanent marker on one side, and then you can keep track of your bottle.

STIR TOGETHER THE FOLLOWING: 1 (8 OUNCE) PACKAGE CREAM CHEESE 1 SMALL VANILLA INSTANT PUDDING 1 CAN CRUSHED PINEAPPLE AND/OR MANDARIN ORANGES, SOME JUICE TOO 1 LARGE COOL-WHIP

◆ We find that when planning our reunion, the young

adults really like theme parties, so we always have a mixer theme night to start. We had a scavenger hunt for the children, where we collected clues about some of our more senior family members. To figure out who it was, the kids would listen to them tell stories and ask questions. What a great time for all!

ADD TO WHEAT MIXTURE AND STORE IN FRIDGE UNTIL READY TO SERVE. (THIS RECIPE IS FROM MY MEMORIES OF HOME, GOOD PRAIRIE RECIPES) COOKBOOK.)

Make sure that you schedule sitters for the little ones so that the adults can relax and participate. Last year, each adult with kids (and some who just wanted to help out) took shifts to be official kid wranglers and entertainers. They did an outstanding job, and the unscheduled parents had time to reconnect with adults without dividing their attention. It felt good that someone was designated “in charge.”

◆ Our family has several members with allergy restrictions and alternative food requirements. I made sure to write up a list, which I made copies of and passed along to all our planned food venues. This way, there was advance notice for those who needed gluten-free and vegetarian options. MORE TV DADS

• A 1930s family living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia was led by John Walton, who ran a sawmill on the family property. In actuality, The Waltons was filmed entirely in California, split between the Warner Brothers Studios and the nearby Angeles National Forest. John Walton and his wife Olivia raised their seven children through the Great Depression and World War II for nine seasons on CBS television. The series was based on creator Earl Hamner’s childhood in the tiny community of Schuyler, Virginia, and Hamner served as the narrator of each episode. CBS executives wanted Henry Fonda to portray John Walton, but when he turned it down, Ralph Waite was chosen. • The bigoted and narrow-minded Archie Bunker

was the guy television viewers from 1971 to 1979 loved to hate. The Bunker family included Archie, his wife Edith, daughter Gloria, and son-in-law Mike “Meathead” Stivic living in the borough of Queens in New York City. As a young person, Archie was an excellent baseball player, and had a dream of playing for the New York Yankees, a dream he gave up when forced to drop out of high school during the Great Depression to help support his family. Archie served in Italy during World War II for 22 months, where he was awarded the Purple Heart. After the war, he worked on a loading dock where he eventually became a foreman. Every race, religion, and political party were the target of his bad-tempered barbs, many of which were delivered from his favorite armchair, which is now exhibited in the Smithsonian.

▶ At the Narcisse Wilderness Management Area in Manitoba, visitors can see more snakes than anywhere else in the world. For two brief periods each year, thousands of red-sided garter snakes gather near their winter dens. In the spring, they form huge knots as they mate before dispersing. In autumn they return to the dens, gathering by the thousands, before returning to their underground dens for the winter. ▶ An ancient glacial lake called Lake Agassiz located in the middle of the North American continent was larger than all the modern Great
