So enjoy reading these, LaraAnn. Makes me remember all those fun old commercials. Thanks for doing these.

One of my favorite commercials is one that doesn't have a celebrity in it... it's the one that has the Indian crying when the garbage is thrown out the window of the car.

I always was a softee for the old "don't pollute" commercials.

After I was done with this post I remembered the crying Indian one. I definitely liked that and was watching it on You Tube a little later. I'm glad that you enjoyed reading this.
