Another question from the friendly folks at Omaha Steaks. Actually, in the spirit of this weekend, I've paired it with one of my own.
When did you get your first color television?
(Note to those of you under 45 or so: sorry to confuse you. Color TV didn't become widespread until the late 1960s.)
And, speaking of television, tell us about a fond Super Bowl memory.
Me first: My parents bought a color TV for Christmas 1965. No, they weren't rich; they were just barely getting by. But they always had to have the newest "thing", whatever that may have been. I called them "consumer innovators": first to have everything, regardless of whether they could afford it.
My favorite Super Bowl memories: Either asking my boys when someone was going to get a home run, or voting for the winner based on the guys who were wearing the cutest outfits. Hubby tells them of watching Joe Namath winning the Super Bowl in the snow in San Diego. Of course, they don't understand life with black and white TVs and no cable.
Happy Super Bowl weekend, everyone!
