The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

Lunch Box Elite

‘The Status Symbol’

Status for folks my age may be measured by how big your house is or how flashy your car is.  But, there used to be a more innocent time when status was measured by a much smaller standard.  On the first day of grade school, hundreds of hungry boys and girls marched into the cafeteria with shiny new lunch boxes.  Lunch boxes were a big thing back in the 60’s and 70’s. Really big.

Usually your lunch box depicted your favorite TV show or cartoon.  I remember going to the school supply section of our local store and spending quite a bit of time trying to decide which lunch box would be the coolest (or grooviest) to carry into the cafeteria.  You had to find the right one.  A great lunch kit would make you the lunchtime king!  I, like most kids back then, had a Brady lunch box.  How about you?  Brady?  Or another popular show?

    Houses and cars? Home prices are going down, but your lunch box is going up! $53 and counting on eBay right now. Hope you still have it…although how could you ever sell it?
