    My first apartment had electric heat so I kept the temp low. I used a blow dryer to warm up the tubes so my old TV would turn on.

    For a while we had a very tiny tv with about a 10" screen. It was black & white and we could only pull in 2 channels. My parents put it on the foot of their king size bed and all 6 of us huddled together to watch it. We loved it.

    I can only remember living close enough to walk to school maybe 3 or 4 times. Most of the time I rode a bus or mom took me.

    The rug was bunched up toward that end of the room so it was uphill at least in one direction. Fortunately the shiny tinfoil wrapped around the ‘rabbit ears’ showed the way through all the cigarette smoke. Also, crushing the steel beer cans was much much harder.

    But the good news is we didn’t have to change the channels much since there weren’t that many.

    And (as my dad likes to tell me) there were only 2 channels – Cowboys and Indians or Indians and Cowboys.
