Color TV! Yes! I remember getting our first one.In the 1960's , we had a black and white tv. My neighbor had the only color set in the neighborhood. I thought that they must be rich
A clothes dryer.
I didn't get cable until 2014, lol, and I am about to pull the plug on the "basic" cable that's all that we still have, and nobody watches anymore. So cable TV will have had less than a ten-year run in my life. I still think only rich people can really afford it, along with decent healthcare.Way back when...cable tv. I remember my aunt and uncle having i believe one of the first...WHT.
I've never owned one but with the weather here they aren't needed much. I remember mum washing clothes in a an old boiler we call a copper, I think we were poor, lol.I was in jr. high before we got an electric clothes dryer. Except that the only place it could go was in our detached garage, so all laundry had to be packed outside to the garage if you wanted to dry it fast, otherwise it went on the clothesline. I remember carrying steaming baskets of wet laundry out to the dryer in winter.
I didn't even know what a mircrowave oven was when dad brought one home at about the same time. I sure thought we were "movin' on up" that year. Lol, I was pretty naïve back then.
