    You have academic discussions about the differences between the "Thunderbirds" series. [Marionettes rule, btw]

    #488 1 year ago

    Do you remember when your family got a color TV? (Of course, some of your friends already had them...).

    How about the rotor on the TV antenna?

    Quoted from MrBally:

    We got our first one (19" Sears Silvertone) to watch the 1969 Apollo 11 mission. Got it in June. How disappointing it was to see the moon walk cameras were black & white.

    I remember the "Heidi Bowl" shortly after we got ours... learned some new words from my dad that day!

    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    Im too young for that, but WOW never thought of it before!!! Color T.V. and moon landing was B/W!

    It would've been too hard to fake the moon landing in color

    Quoted from jhanley:

    I used to get really bummed when Lawrence Welk came on the T.V. on Sunday because I knew I had to go to school the next day.

    Parents liked Mitch, Grandma liked Lawrence Welk... which was even more depressing, because that meant she was babysitting and we had to eat all our vegetables! I hated kohlrabi and rhubarb.

    Quoted from cottonm4:

    When you know what this is and you know that is not called a can opener and it is not a bottle opener but goes by a different name.
    Good times down fishing at the riverbank.

    Hallelujah brother!

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    Are you sure you did not slip on one of those scrubby poof things?
    I remember back in simpler times when there was a bar of soap and the stuff in the bottle was to wash your hair.
    Now the shower shelves are full of all shapes/sizes/descriptions of bottles. . . I imagine part of that comes with having a spouse though.

    *Plastic* bottles now - remember when we had glass bottles in the shower?!? Although, honestly, I don't ever remember one getting broken...

    Was in the doctor's office today and they had "Father Knows Best" and "Dennis the Menace" on TV... felt like I was in second grade and home sick from school...

    That was a powerful morning lineup back then... along with the "Dick Van Dyke Show" and "The Andy Griffith Show"

    ....Lost an eardrum from System of a Down,
    who also saved my ass in the hospital once.

    This piques my interest....

    The IBM 360 picture reminded me that I had to wear a jacket and tie to work when I first started... when I retired, people were coming to work in shorts and flip flops...

    Quoted from Don_C:

    If you are truly old you could have named those two guys in the video and their most famous roles in a flash.
    Don C

    Furthermore, all you really need to do is listen... you should be able to identify the roles by their voice only!

    Quoted from rollitover:

    I am familiar with that one but it was
    Status Pro Baseball by Avalon Hill,
    1984 edition.

    Anybody remember "Strat-O-Matic"? We played that for entire summers...
