Love that KFC! I remember they used to also offer an Orange & Onion salad. Sounds gross, but it was pretty good. Also, in my area at least, they've quit offering extra crispy chicken--and I'm grateful because there is no way I'd be able to eat that in moderation.

In the 70's, some KFC's made different gravies and my favorite was a yummy onion flavored brown good. And those little dessert parfaits were good.

I miss the simplier times....when you could just order a barrel, bucket or thrift box of KFC and be on your way (no need to choose a side, biscuits, etc). The only choice you had to make was "original or crispy." You don't want many choices when you're drunk.

Oddly enough, the first KFC restaurant opened in Utah (1952), far from Kentucky. Harland Sanders was dubbed an honorary "colonel" by the state of Kentucky, and he adopted the title henceforth. After 1964, Sanders had almost nothing to do with the corporation (being over 70 years young then), but appeared in numerous TV commercials nearly until his death in 1980. In my home town, Racine, Wis., KF chicken started selling within the local Big Boy restaurant in 1965. The first two free-standing KFCs opened in 1969, less than two miles from each other. Today, we still have two KFCs, though about five miles from each other. The north side store has a 1989 sign on one side, and a 2004 sign on the other. Frugal franchisees.

From the prime time TV vault, a KFC commercial showing several people painting a house. One guy walks around with a bucket passing out chicken to the workers. One guy nearly dips a chicken leg into a paint bucket. Ending shows Col. Sanders. Slogan: Have a barrel of fun. This aired on "That's My Mama" over ABC (10/2/74). Early episode with Lynne Moody as Cliff's (Davis) sister. Moody's early work included a minor part in a 1967 "Batman" episode, where she was a theater ticket seller who gets a dose of sleeping gas from The Penguin (Burgess Meredith) as he robs the cash box. Moody also played an attorney in "Young Lawyers" (1970), girlfriend of Lamont on "Sanford & Son" (1973). Also, a nurse in the "E/R" sitcom, and as a housekeeper in Agatha Christie's "Carribean Mystery" TV movie.
