I don't remember what our first TV looked like.
It might have been this.

    1. You're welcome, Yvonne. Shows back then were a lot different to the shows of today. Mostly clean, family shows instead of crime. Have a great weekend too.

    1. That's cool, Pat. Compared to today's TV these were rather mild. I think we should go back, but times have changed. Have a great weekend.

  3. I knew you'd have Twilight Zone. I'd have to say that's my absolute favorite!

    1. You're so right, Karin. Good, clean shows seem to be history. The reason I seldom watch TV these days.

  5. Oh wow! Dick Clark and American Bandstand! That's a flash from the past. All of these shows were great choices, Beverly.

  6. Definitely seen a lot of I Love Lucy and a few episodes of The Twilight Zone. It's been a while since I've watched either of them, though.

    1. There will never be another I Love Lucy, Sarah. I haven't watched them in a while either. They were good shows, though. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Blog hopping from North Carolina during the #Challenge. I started WAY down the participant list figuring they wouldn't get as much traffic.I was in high school during the 50's and we finally a Tv to watch these shows on. The is a good theme for the likes of me. I have been writing about hotels and inns, the architects and setting. Come and learn something more about fixing tea or having tea at a lovely hotel.

    1. Hi Stepheny. Thanks for hopping my way. My high school years were in the 50s too. I don't remember what our first TV looked like, but my sister and I were excited. Hotels ad inns sound interesting. Will hop on over shortly, as soon as I catch up here. Nice to "meet" you.

  8. I like watching old Twilight Zone reruns. A lot of great twisty storytelling here. I remember one episode where this woman who is afraid of death meets Robert Redford, who plays Death, and he gently leads her away.

    1. It was a great show, Cynthia. I don't remember that one, but Robert Redford could lead me away anytime. :) Thanks for stopping by.

  11. They ran a Twilight Zone marathon one weekend on TV here--you can bet my husband and I watched a string of them! Funny thing, we couldn't remember seeing many of them but we must have, the show was a favorite for both of us in the 50s. Thanks for the reminders of other shows, too

    1. A marathon sounds like fun, Kenda. Sometimes I see something from years ago that's vaguely familiar, but can't always remember whether I've seen it before or not.
