Subject: RE: BS: No Telly?
My other half (primary teacher)when asked by some of her class of youngsters what progs she watched on TV, explained that she did not own a TV. The kids felt sorry for her that it may be broken but she explained she had NEVER had a TV and the last time she watched TV was as a child at her parents house. The bewildered kids struggled to come to grips with this strange existence until one of them said to her, in a stage whisper, "you can get them in colour now, you know".
Long, long ago, when my ageing Grandmother was given an old Eko console TV, she took to it right away, but when we next visited her, she asked when would the man be coming to change the films inside!!
A bit disappointing this Christmas, didn't get a card from the TVLA, they must be fed up with begging for a license fee. 8~)
