Awww, man. That was cold.
I know I'm not the oldest codger here, but I remember (vaguely):
Getting our first COLOR
TV! (still had to get off your a$$ to change channels - or make your kids do it for you (like my dad did - called me in from outside once to make me do it...he thought he was pretty funny))
"Kung Fu" wasn't a rerun.
"Link" on the "Mod Squad".
TV stations actually went off the air around 1 AM and back on around 6 AM
They played the national anthem when they went on & off air.
We went outside
for entertainment (i.e. no computers, video games)
We went to the theater to see a movie (i.e. no VCR, DVD, HBO (came later))
Those movies cost 25 cents at the base theater and you got a cool cartoon before the show.
My dad complaining that the price of gas was getting ridiculous at 32 cents/gallon.
Cassette tapes were state-of-the-art media for music and the equipment was expensive - 8 track was much more popular.
I got more, just can't remember 'em. This sounds like one of those "do you remember when" emails that hits my inbox every now and then. Crap, I'm ancient.
