Learned a lot of stuff from that tube, back when it really was a tube...a black and white one until we finally made the jump to color and a real antennae. I wouldn't have known how to act with cable HD and a couple hundred channels back then. It seemed to always be snowing on the black and white tube no matter what I was watching, even if it was a scene filmed in an August Death Valley :-)Add a comment
