In the fourteen years I've lived in Texas, I don't recall a television ad for Carl's Jr. I'm sure they've been advertising all along but because I so seldom watch television, I may have missed any ad for Carl's Jr. (The few times I watch, however, I see a lot of ads for Sonic and for Geico.)
Tonight, while surfing across the basic 12 channels to check in on each of three simultaneous college football games, I caught a Carl's Jr ad while stopping to watch "Bones." Wow, a Carl's Jr ad. I don't recall a Carl's Jr ad since my days in California back in the late 1980's. For that matter I don't recall a Carl's Jr.
Regular readers will remember this post. It looks like it is starting: Carl's Jr moving to Texas in a big way. In 'N Out is already here. They have a huge mobile restaurant/18-wheeler that delivers to the elementary school on special occasions where our granddaughters are enrolled. Yes, Michelle, that's true. And I love the school's rules on "treats from home." But enough of this; I apologize for the digression.
[This is really quite funny. While posting this, I saw both a Geico and a Sonic ad. LOL. Life imitating blogging.]
A Note to the Granddaughters
One of my favorite memories while living in South Pasadena, California, 1973 - 1977, was visiting Carl's Jr on Colorado Boulevard on the east end of Pasadena.
