Misc. Remembrance:

In '78, mom was a member of a bowling league, and every Tuesday night she'd drop me off at my aunt Nancy's house, and I'd hang out with my cousin Karla for the night. We'd hang out in her room and listen to records and play a board game, then she'd call her girlfriends, then we'd watch Three's Company on her little black and white television set in her bedroom. When it was over, she'd turn the TV off then we'd go to sleep. When she'd turn the TV off, the picture would reduce to a little white dot, which would stay on for about 15 minutes. I'd watch the dot 'til I fell asleep. I'm guessing they don't make black-and-white televisions any more...

This brought back so many memories. We had one TV set on a cart that you could wheel around the house to different rooms. I remember a big event 1979 when we all gathered into my parents room and my mom made a big tub of popcorn on the stove and we watched the ABC Friday Night Movie, The Death of Ocean View Park. I am so glad I grew up in then. Your site is great and brings back so many wonderful memories for me. Thank you!
