Remember the TV sitcom, Good Times? You know the show that depicted what family life was like in the ghetto. This is one of those shows African-American baby boomers, like myself, grew up with. There were so many stereotypes in the show it would make your head spin. But the one thing I always appreciated about the show was the fact that it had a father present and accounted for in the home. Yes, he was always struggling to take care of his family---but he was a strong father figure who wasn't running around chasing after other women or getting "drunk as a skunk" every chance he got. He loved his woman and he pushed his children to succeed in school and in life.
I'm giving you the opportunity to test your knowledge of the TV sitcom Good Times for your chance to win an autographed copy Bern Nadette "Thelma" Stanis' book Situations 101. Winner will be selected at random from all correct entries and announced during my show on BlogTalk Radio Monday at noon EST. I'll actually be interviewing Bern Nadette at that time. So c'mon and relive some of those Good Times:
Temporary lay offs.
Easy credit rip offs.
Scratchin' and surviving.
Hangin in a chow line
Ain't we lucky we got 'em
