  14. Excellent illo, Jack! Was just talking with the hubby about these shows a few weeks back. How much we enjoyed them, what a shame that there's none like them for kids today. Life before cable... ;)

  15. We didn't have color TV til I was about 10. I'm sad just thinking of watching Disney in black and white.

  16. Hey Jack, we still don't have colour tv! We habve a bit of coloured perspex which is blue on top, flesh coloured in the middle, and green on the bottom. Which brings me to your carpet! You must have lived on a diet of lime spiders...?

    Disney was on at 6.30 till 7.30 every Sundaty night when I was a kid, At 7.30 on came Mchales' Navy. Soemtimes when I was good I was allowed to watch it,


    thanks for the memories :0

    chow!

  23. uh oh...
    when I do the math logic, it turns out that if this memory is old fashioned, and I have this memory, then therefore I am old fashioned.
    I never liked math much anyway...
