I can certainly understand her desire to do these things herself. In today's time, as women we have the same choice in a roundabout way. Some are lucky enough to choose if they want to be housewives, cleaning their own home, maybe making a dress or two (or more in some of our cases) and a number of other "homie" kind of things. Some women (and men too, I am sure) can choose between being "home" or working out in the public sphere. If we work outside of the home, while we can not twinkle our nose for a clean house and gourmet dinner, we can hire outside help. I am sure at some point, I might hire someone to come in a clean the carpets or take an outfit to the cleaners. In a way, this is making the same choices as Samantha. She chooses to do these things herself, sometimes they work out, sometimes they do not. We are very lucky to live in a time where we have more choices on how we live our lives. As much as I romanticise living in mid-century America, I am very happy to have the choices available to me in 2010.
I much prefer the black and white episodes. It is funny, however, how Sam became kind of "groovie" when the color episodes started airing.
Did you know that "Tabitha" had her own series spin-off? I do not remember this. It was only for one season is 1977. You can find it on youtube.com.
I love this photo of her in a ponytail. I love how is is kinda candid and casual.....but she is obviously posing because there is a FROG in her hand. LOL
