When I was a kid my dad told me “nope, no TV when I was a boy, crystal radio.
We just had our friends from college here for New Year’s with their kids….Among the 8 of us (the four kids were 17, 15, 11 and 10), we had 7 digital cameras (if you count phones)), three iPods, five digital phones, 14 email adddresses… Just like when I was a kid. Sheesh.
My little one can hardly grasp that when I was a kid:
no answering machines
no touch tone telephone
no cell phones
no fm radio
no pbs (we did have wnet but it was aimed at in-school viewing)
