Fridays Are For One Question

This is a picture of the family Von Trapp then, when The Sound of Music was made, and now, some 45 years later. Pretty cool:   It also makes me wonder what reunions of other classic TV shows or movies might look like. So for today’s question, use your imagination: “What reunion of a classic [...]
