...way back in the 60's. The hosts were Miss Mary Ellen and Miss Eppie. I was their biggest fan! I'd rush home from kindergarten and stay glued to the black and white rabbit-eared TV for that 1/2 hour.

Now here's the clincher...I just found Miss Mary Ellen and called her! This show has been on my mind for, obviously, years! Many times I'd ask an adult if they remembered the show, but not knowing it was aired only from Florida to Maine.

What a joy to talk with "Miss Mary Ellen", who just turned 80. She said that in all these years I was only the second "kid" to remember the show. LOL!!

At the end of each episode, Miss Mary Ellen and Miss Eppie had a "mystery box" to open. All sorts of goodies were inside!

With DH's 2-yr-old granddaughter, Grace, coming in a few weeks, I want to start a similar tradition...having some kind of "box" that we can explore with and have fun!

Anyone else remember it??

I've really wracked my brain on this one, Di. I don't seem to remember it at all! Of course, that doesn't mean that I didn't see it but it just doesn't seem I did. How cool, though, to call this lady and talk with her. I bet you made her whole week! By the way, is that title correct or a typo?

Oops......."FUN at one". I corrected it...thanks!

Yes, she was very excited and she said I 'Made her day".

For me it is very important to contact those people who truly impacted my life. I've been known to call my 7th grade teacher, past classmates, former co-workers etc. I like to catch people off guard, then thank them for how they influenced my life.

I don't recall it.

How cool that you called her. How did you locate her?

Wellll, I'm REALLY REALLY good at finding 'stuff' on the web. I did a very intricate search and sought her out.

Here is a link to the article I found...

Then I did more searches and found her email...then wrote!

This is the first I've ever heard of the show. It must not have aired in Texas.

I must research this now because I absolutely can't remember such a thing.

Hmmm...I can't even find anything online, Di! I googled "Fun at One" and then "Miss Mary Ellen" and "Miss Eppie."
