No, it's gone now. I guess they took root and became a new RV dealership😉

 

Don't forget the dinosaurs on the other side of the road

 

Oh yeah...(so many cute ideas along the way...until the the uptight changed things).  Heard that some freaked out with the big one looking like it was coming out to get them.  😉

I've been a grandfather 13 years. We had TV

 

I had to twist the tin foil to find chanels

 

I was the family's remote control..."hey ...go change the channel kid".   OK...hmmm...choice of three of them.  😉  Was super excited when the first color TV channel came on..."Walt's Wonderful World of Color".....   😄

Yep. I also remember the TV "repairman" that came to the house and he would have a mirror set up so he could watch the screen while working in the back of the TV to determine which tubes were faulty and needing replacement. No more repairs. We just throw them away and buy a bigger one!

Ah, the memories.  I was one of those "back in the day".

We were poor as kids but were one of the few families on our block (Redhook in Brooklyn, New York - circa 1950’s) to even have a TV.  
 

Does anyone else remember when those tinted plastic screens you put on the front of the TV to “simulate” color TV?  Man, they were horrid! 😱
