* NOSTALGIC SUNDAY *

It's Time for Another Nostalgic Sunday


This morning I've been thinking of other famous "aunts" in addition to Aunt Bee, in the world of TV and literature. Here's a few I've come up with:

Aunt Polly -- Tom Sawyer
Aunt Pittypat -- Gone With the  Wind
Aunt Clara -- Bewitched
Auntie Mame -- Mame
Auntie Em -- The Wizard of Oz

How about you? What famous aunts have I forgotten? To fit in my nostalgic category, they can't be current. 



 *Welcome to my newest follower, Janet at Creative Writing in the Blackberry Patch. hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! * 


P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment for my give-away before Midnight CDT, tonight! You must leave it at this blog post: http://beckypovich.blogspot.com/2013/07/give-away-books more.html
Good luck to all!

  4. AUNT JEMIMA.

    I know what you're thinking, but YES, she DID appear on TV. I saw her the other day sitting on Archie Bunker's kitchen table!

  5. Oh dear. No aunts to add to your list - just a sad anecdote. I was never a good aunt - and now I am a great aunt. Which I find terrifying.

  6. Hi Becky, your blog looks very pretty! What about Francie's aunt in "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"? I don't remember her name right now, but I do remember what she looks like.

    Have a super week!

    Hugs,

    Kathy M.

    1. Hi Kathy! Thank you for the compliment! And WOW...great answer! I would've never thought of Francie's aunt! I had to look it up....it's Aunt Sissy. I need to reread that book!

      That's one of my all-time all-time favorite novels, despite the fact that I'm not a girl who ever lived in Brooklyn. I think that says a lot about the story and the writing.

      I have a first edition copy of Betty Smith's classic which I have read probably three times. And I think I'm due to reread it again soon.

    1. Oh, Karen! That's a fabulous answer! I should've thought of her because I LOVED Mama's Family!! Vicki Lawrence was hilarious in that! Thank you for commenting! Oh, I hope to make it to C&C tomorrow...not sure yet, though. Thank you!

  9. Fussy old skinflint Aunt March in Little Women. She made Jo work so hard by promising her a trip to Europe and then she took Amy instead. She put everybody down, no one was good enough for her. She did come through in the end, but at what a cost.

    1. Marcia, that is a FABULOUS answer! I'd totally forgotten about Aunt March. You are so correct about her, too!! Thanks so much for stopping and commenting!

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
