Miriam Flynn starred as Maggie Weston in this comedy created by Erma Bombeck.
The Weston household included husband Len (James Hampton) and three sons: Mark (12), Bruce (8), and LJ (16) – who wasn’t seen because he seemed to live in the bathroom.
If you could believe Maggie, these four males were involved in an insidious plot to destroy her sanity and alphabetize her spice rack – which amounted to the same thing.
She escaped this house of horrors by repairing to Loretta’s House of Coiffures, where the proprietress (Doris Roberts) and the natives were friendly, and talked about interesting things like toilet training and Brussels sprouts.
