Default Do you remember these?

Back in the 1960's Swanson had good TV dinners. Mom was a single mom working 2 jobs. These meals were easy on hectic days.

I loved the large variety of entrees, vegetables, potatoes, desserts and you got soup!

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

We never had those. My dad would not eat anything like that. He wouldn't even eat casseroles. My mother was cooking for a family of 7, so they were much pricier that just cooking something from scratch.

When I finally moved out on my own, I did try some. I never thought they were very good.

The meat loaf was my go-to favorite.........


When the woman who was to become my first wife invited me to dinner for the first time, her idea of cooking me dinner was a Turkey Swanson TV Dinner...... she burned it ! Later that evening, she accidentally spilled a cup of hot tea in my lap ........... Lordy, I should have gotten the message........ Woman gave me four of the happiest years of my life...... unfortunately , we were married for seven .............

Marie Callanders are my favorite! The problem is that my local grocery stores freezer case is at the far back of the store and most days I can’t walk that far . The vegetables, fruit, milk and bread are close to the front so they’re easy to get to.

Schwans stuff is good and they deliver. The delivery guy brings my order in and sets it in the kitchen. He’s been with the company 26 years. Back then he delivered to my Mom, then to my brother when he moved here after Mom was gone, and now to me since I moved back after my brother passed last year.

Jim, two questions: 1) can you get Marie Callendar products through your store's delivery service? 2) does your store have the battery-powered seated carts for handicapped people?

No and sometimes. Only one and its in use often when I go Even when I’ve used it getting up and down to reach things just wears me out.

If I go to the City couple of grocery stores have curbside pickup by appointment. Call your order in and they give you a day and time window to pick up your order. Just a long drive and they never have everything.

On a good day it hurts just to move around. On a bad day I just stay in the recliner and read.

I’m not very mobile. Inner ear is messed up so no sense of balance. Circulation problems in one leg causing weakness and constant pain, venous ulcers and at times venous infections. Back problems too

Cobwebs cleared away to extract the following information.

It was Kips Big Boy in Texas. I only remember one in Dallas maybe on Mockingbird Lane? In Houston on Westheimer and I think there was one on the freeway close to Hobby Airport. I think they all were closed by the 1980ís.
