I thought it was Bobby and Annette before they got the Mouse Ears. But I would never contend a point in history with you.

You all think you had it rough. I had to wade through 16 feet of shag carpet to change the channel. Those sissies today with their remotes just don't have any concept of what we went through just to watch TV.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

It wasn't good. But I did give my children a good upbringing and they know it and love me.

We didn't have TV until I was 13. We'd go over to my grandparents 2 or 3 days a week to watch TV when I was little. Sometimes mom would let us stay over on a Friday night so we could watch cartoons Saturday morning. My grandparents did like to watch Lawrence Welk and Hee Haw.

We were so poor we couldn't even pay attention! laugh
My mom was a big Lawrence Welk fan. She even played his records on our Magnavox stereo console.
Sometimes things went a little haywire on the show.

Yep, and had to adjust the rabbit ears for 2 of the 3 channels. Catch hell if I screwed up the tinfoil wings.

Paternal Grandma got Christmas cards from Lawrence Welk. Later when I had kids they began fighting over the TV regularly. I got tired of telling them to stop. Turned it off, unplugged it, and cut the cord off at the casing. It was that way for about three years during which they learned to play together, by themselves, or read, etc. It gave me more peace all the way around. Momma was happier too. Be Well, RZ.

Lawrence Welk, Ed Sullivan, Perry Mason, and the Friday Night Fights.

That's what I watched staying at grandparent's house.

Welk was on Saturdays. Mostly.

My grandad always said he'd watch the Lawrence Welk Show until ^^^ "he" ^^^ came on, and then he'd go to bed... laugh

Grandad meant it too! When that tap dancer came on, he'd cuss a bit, then get up, and go to bed! grin


Sounds like my GrandDad too !

I don't know what they were paid per show - but they were getting union scale or better and it was 1971 - so how many hours did they work for that $110 ?
