    I haven’t had a TV set since 1996 and don’t miss it at all. Many days I don’t even listen to the radio or music. I do hear the birds outside but enjoy quiet.

    I go barefoot most of the time (I’m 79). Started in childhood and has continued. When I was little the bottom of my feet were so tough that stepping on a sand bur or bee didn’t bother me. I liked school except for having to wear shoes.

    I don’t have a problem with political or anything else on TV – I haven’t had a TV in over 20 years – don’t miss it at all.

I was in Jr Hi when the dial system was installed.

    we used the empty waxed paper bread bags to make the slide slick- worked great especially on a sunny day! Plastic bags just don’t work.

    I remember seeing a B&W documentary about spaghetti- from planting trees to the harvest celebration. Don’t remember if it was a short with a movie or on TV. Sounded and looked very serious but was so funny.

    I listened to Fibber McGee and Mollie with my Dad. Opening the closet was always a highlight. Radio programs were wonderful for the imagination. Jack Benny, Sky King, Sargent Preston and King, The Shadow, and the list goes on—
