A boy watches television for the first time through a shop window, 1948.

I remember my mom and sisters would go window shopping at night when the stores were closed. Money was scarce and they spent a lot of time deciding what they really wanted to buy.

They also spent a lot of winter days thumbing thru the Sears catalogue, my dad called it their wish book. You always wanted to be sure to order at least once a year so you would be sure to get a new catalogue next year. The old catalogue had use at the out house.

Do you remember when they was selling cable T.V. They said you would not have any commercials because you are paying for the service. Ya right.

I remember watching cowboy shows on saturday morning with our first B/W TV. That was in 1954 I think.

Howdy Doody and Mickey Mouse, every boy had a major crush for Annett. W were not allowed to watch the 3 Stooges, too violent, or Hogans Hero's, nothing funny about Nazi's.


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

Beware! Jill Pudlewski, Ron Oates and Keven Begesse are liars and thiefs!

Space patrol was the first tv show I remember. Bob Steel was one of the cowboys I remember. I guess because I went to school with one of his sons and every time I went to his house he would be watching movies of his dad. I lived on the other side of the tracks from him though!

My uncle hated Hogan's Heros. He had been Nazi POW during WW2. He said there was nothing funny about it.

I remember that day well, I was discharged from the Army in San Francisco, they made an announcement that the Jets won.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Nittany First of all thank you for your service .We lived about an hour from Baltimore so many people thought of the Colts as their home team . Plus Namath was a young brash quarterback bragging how the Jets where a sure thing. He was able to produce what he said he would but my brothers and many others sure did not like the outcome of Super Bowl III

When we got rid of the Rabbit Ears and put up a Roof Antenna,,I was sent up on the roof many times to "Spin" the antenna a bit so a channel would come in more clear.Had a "Party Line" phone too.You would pick up your phone and someome would already be talking on it. smile
