Classic Carol - The Carol Burnett Show #JBHolidayGuide16

Growing up, I spent many nights with my Nana.  (I know I am not the only one to have a special bond with a grandparent.)  We had many good times and even now that she has been gone for getting close to 20 years, I can still bring up vivid memories of her like it was yesterday.  One memory? Watching her favorite TV shows. My Nana was cool before I even knew what cool was!  She had 2 TVs in her living room, since her "stories" came on at the same time and she had to watch and know what was going on.  (Long before Sports bars were putting multiple TVs out for your viewing pleasure!)  Looking back,I guess I never had a bedtime at her house, because we would be up late watching shows until who knows what time.  One of her favorite shows?  The Carol Burnett Show. Now that was a classic and for all of us Carol Burnett fans, we can now own a Collectors Edition of THE LOST EPISODES.  I can only imagine how hilarious those are!
I have my fingers crossed that this will arrive for me under the tree this holiday season!  What are you hoping to be under your tree this year?
