Also I have tried to see if Smaug would eat ants in a video, she has not yet. I suppose I should be glad about that because it means I have been feeding her well. I got a shipment of BSFL and she loves those.

I'm not ready for a walker yet but I remember having to get up to change the channel on a black and white TV (one of 3 channels), LOL!!!

+1 👍

Does my cane count? I remember 2 channels; ABC (I learned later) was in some cities/markets, but didn't catch up to us until the '60s. Then PBS, then the first independent in our market that later became FOX. Admittedly, we avoided cable for 20 years. :roll:

It took us until the '80s to convince Mom that color TV wasn't radioactive and going to make her grow another head. (Yeah, I know the history of the early models, but that was 30 years earlier.) :lol:

No, TELEMUNDO didn't come out until '84. I thought that was around when cable started, because that's when cable came to our area (silly me... :oops: ) Cable's history goes back to '48--even before my time, and is more interesting than I thought.

All we had was NBC, CBS, and ABC when I was a kid, all black and, white. Man, color TV was out YEARS before we got it, LOL (didn't get it till I was 6) in 64 :shock: :shock: :shock: . Like Jeff Foxworthy said, "If the president was on your night was screwed", LOL!!!

Lol! 😆
Petey's snoozing under his new uvb tube, hate to disturb him. 😉
Dunno about other people dragons but Petey definitely knows when I'm talking to him. I think it may be the pitch and tone when I say 'Petey Boy'. 😊
