Dear Arthur and friends,

Television memories may abound with a few questions:  When did your families get their first TV? Where was the best place in the neighborhood to watch a Red Sox-Yankees game?  When did you obtain your first color TV?  Explain the adjustments one had to make to make the TV operate.  What was your earliest favorite TV shows?  How many of your friends own more than three TV's today?  

Last of all, how did we all survive before cable TV arrived in 1983?

We were lucky to have a mini tv in todays standards. The old Dumont was a real draw from the neighborhood and our new friends...Amazing how we put up with the rolling pictures and the fuzzies and the need to twist the contrast dials etc.
