In 1956 our TV broke in VA just before my dad got transferred to Juneau. He said to forget it b/c TV wasn't much good there. Sure enough for 5 years there all I got to watch occasionally were 2 week old Dennis the Menace reruns at a friend's house shipped up from Seattle to be played by the local TV station. Instead I learned to read and listen to the radio.

Ain't that something? How about this: I'm so old I actually read books as a child.

Yep me too . Went down to the library on my bike ,and got the limit 10 books at a time . Went home and read every book . Would find quiet places to read , like one of my parent's cars ,getting in the back and locking the doors so my younger brothers couldn't bother me . Big Oldsmobile under a shade tree and they didn't know I was there . Pat

I had streamers at one time too, but not pink ones.

I read every one..... in about 2 weeks.

Okay, that may be exagerating, but when I was young, up to my mid-teens when I found out about girls an partying, I read about 4 books a week.

I used balloons in the spokes, right amount of air so they would not bust often, Both sides in the rear, what a sound. Carl
