This couple was something I had forgotten about years ago until just the other day when I was in the checkout line . Among all the tabloid magazines and last-minute impulse purchases was a magazine with this picture on the cover.
Nothing spells daytime TV like General Hospital and the Flintstones for me during the school year as a kid. I am not an expert or even a novice when it comes to knowledge of daytime soaps or as my grandmother would say “her programs” but I do notice Luke & Laura.
When I would have a half day at school or on the days when I was sick my grandmother would come over to watch me while my mother and father were at work. At lunch my Gram would make me a PB&J sandwich (crust cut off) and apple slices sprinkled lightly with salt. I would watch the Flintstones eating this gourmet lunch only to be followed by her program. General Hospital was just one of her favorites but I can remember how big of a thing Luke & Laura were.
Now Luke & Laura I believe are just a memory of General Hospital and my grandmother has since passed, but I would surely love to spend another afternoon eating salted apple slices while watching General Hospital with my Gram
