Back in the days and now.
I think most of us remember when buying a tv wasn’t just buying a tv. It was buying a furniture! The screen was small but the furniture was big 🙂 Some even had a record player in them but those were so expensive that very few had that kind where I grew up. I remember how the whole neighborhood came to look at the tv and there was a lot of OOhing and Ahhing and that was even before anyone even had managed to set the one channel we had back then 🙂 🙂 🙂
The tv was the most important thing in the home and one could even buy special thermos flasks called Tv pitchers over here. To set the channel wasn’t that easy all the time either. First one had to turn a button so that the right wave length was right and then one had to adjust the tv antenna too. There were always a lot of: no, no, no YES, no you turned it to far and so on 🙂 🙂 🙂
It’s not the same today is it. Unless the tv screen is over 50″ there aren’t any Aaaahs or oooohs at all 🙂 Rather why did You buy such a small screen 🙂 🙂 🙂 There are no problems setting the channels either, the tv does that itself and it doesn’t matter if the tv antenna isn’t completely right, it works anyway 🙂 As You must understand I fetched my new tv at the post office today 🙂 and I must admit that I did say a little Ohh and a little Aaah 🙂 Compared to my old one this is huge 🙂 🙂
I guess I’ll be watching a lot of tv today because the storm we’re having is anything but nice. It isn’t that bad down here in the village or even at the open fields. But my little Mazda did jump arround a lot on the road when I drove up the mountain to get the tv 🙂 🙂 🙂 The winds pushed it like it was a thin leaf 🙂 and I am amazed that the roads were wet because the rain didn’t fall down to the ground, it flew horizontally 🙂 🙂 🙂
So now I leave You for an afternoon and evening in front of my new tv, drinking lots of tea and eating lots of sandwiches 🙂 By the way, Orvar started playing with us on our walk this afternoon, something he hasn’t done in a long while 🙂 I think the medicine helps 🙂
Have a great day!
