I miss Red. He was both a gentleman and a gentle man. He could have tears rolling down your face from laughter and never have said a "bad" word. This is lost on so many these days.

First the news then the weather then the late show

If you can sing it, then you are old.

We lived so far back in the sticks the only outside communication was by letter with a two cent stamp.

You used a reel to reel tape recorder.

Used to send my Grandma Bless (in California) audio tapes using the reel to reel when I was but a small boy.

Can't even find them now....

Test patterns on TV until five pm, George Gobel show, Red Buttons, Red Skelton, Captian Video, Tobor the robot (robot spelled backwards) Rinky Dink COLOR plastic to make your B&W have blue sky, green grass--even made concrete look green!


The only place to see undergarments was in a catalog. Or on a clothesline.
When you could buy BLUEING to whiten your white fabrics.


When your toilet got moved or remodeled due to age or height of the pile.
When the first pages to be used in the catalog in the outhouse were the index pages. And the last were the women's foundation garments pages.


When a 22 LR bullet thru the chimney on the outhouse got my uncle off the seat and out the door faster than he had ever done. This 9 year old kid didn't know how fast fast was until then!!

If you remember when a twelve year old boy could grab a twenty two rifle on his way out the back door and no one ever questioned why, and I never shot anything I shouldn't, I didn't fear my father but I knew the consequences.

If you remember during hunting season most lockers at the Jr High and High school had a .22 in them-no big deal. Or coming to school with a bit of blood from hunting in the morning.

It appears some folks here really are not to old YET.
Reel to reel tape Hell I remember hearing my voice on a WEBCORE wire tape recorder.

After that about 1953, my friend came to this country from Germany with his Magnetic tape Wollensak tape recorder.

Now today I record my voice on my Cell phone Wow how time has moved on.

Didn't they used to be aerial wires before they were antennas?

If you lived in southern California we had Street Cars before they removed the tracks for the buses. Now they are putting the tracks back in. Government in action?

Ariel wire with the big glass insulators. Used it to listen to radio free Europe and short wave from around the world. Remember the band selector and how about this. Do you remember your first television which did not have a click type tuner but a vernier tuner that you tuned in like a radio. RCA made it and so did Dumont/ it had a round tube and a green tuning eye
