Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Our 55 Ford, I did the customizing on it! (the bar grill and hood scoop!) We lived in the 42x8 trailer in the back ground.
Before I start, I just saw this on FB:
This is me and Jack Wiley. I didn't know Kiersten (his mother) had this picture. I am sure she or Matt took it, I held him while they ate and he just cried once!
Then and now. We in our church denomination
smile at times concerning ‘sins’ of the past. I was never ‘allowed to go to the
Show’ but I did sneak off and risk that sin. When TV became available to the
average home in the USA, many people in our denomination ruled it a sin, in the
category of the Movie Show. My dad did not consider it a sin, but since it was
widely shunned in our denomination he would not allow one in the house. I did visit
friends that had TVs and loved to watch Wrestling on Sat. Nite, then run home
just after midnight!
watched Wrestling, you had to suffer through “The Hit Parade.” It aired just
before wrestling. The hit parade put on the top ten songs of the previous week.
If you are fortunate to remember it you will remember the names: Dorothy
Collins, Snooky Lanson, Gisele MacKenzie, and Russell Arms, with bandleader Raymond
Ok, sorry to chase a rabbit with this entry, this
is about TV! With a hurricane in the wind we turned to the TV. What a waste. I
think there was 5 mins of weather and 15 minutes of commercials. The News and
Commercials have folks who compete with each other to see who can say the most
words in 60 seconds.
listen that fast. So as I watched I thought, maybe the church leaders were
right, this thing is a SIN, LOL. Maybe
NOT back in the 50’s. Back then Howdy Doody, wrestling’ ‘Your Hit Parade’ and
cartoons on Saturday morning was on. BUT what about now when vulgarity and news(LOL)
are allowed.? I’m not sure. I might ask Victor, since Billy Graham is dead and I cannot ask him.
