There are a lot of great things about living in this age, so don't take this as a luddite longing for the past because it isn't.
I couldn't live without todays modern conveniences and much of what makes life worthwhile today just wasn't available to many of us growing up.
But still, from time to time I am reminded of the things and the ways of the past that I kinda sorta miss a little bit. This is an opportunity to recall those things with fondness.
It certainly isn't to invite a debate about which time or era was "better". Not the point at all.
I was just talking with SWMBO and noted that I missed the whole Television schedule thing;
You know, Advance notice of the new fall line up. A new season of TV shows starting in the fall when most people would be moving activities indoors and watching TV through the winter months.
Then in the Summer, when everyone was outside or on Vacation, the re-runs.
The New Fall Line-Up was quite the thing to anticipate and I remember making mental note of the new shows that I'd be checking out.
Seems that now, new shows start just about any time they please. I'm at a loss as to which shows are nearing their season finale now days. I don't watch much TV anyway, so I suppose the point is moot, but still, one remembers.
Do you remember this? Is there anything else you recall fondly that seems to have gone the way of the Brontosaurus?
(Oddly enough, even the name Brontosaurus went the way of the Brontosaurus and it is now the Apatosaurus)
