Remember when...

Postby Timbales » Wed Jun 29, 2011 1:27 pm

... there was no internet
... the only channels were 3, 5, 9 and PBS
... comics were less than a dollar
... summer hit and I'd leave the house after breakfast and not be home until dinner, my mom not knowing where I was or what I was doing and it was totally fine
... there were no cell phones
... house phones were corded and had a rotary dial

I remember being so jealous of my friend Joel who got an Atari 2600 soon after they came out, and his parents replaced the living room TV and set-up the old one for him to use for it.

Two TV's! Unheard of!

I know right?

My dad didn't really let us have consoles. He preferred PC gaming. That being said, I miss the old school PC games too!
