Papa’s World – Growing up in the 50’s – TV programs.

Goodday – from Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

A long way from the mountains I grew up in NWPA!

As a child growing up – I remember many programs I would watch on our black and white TV.

Sky King – Rin-Tin-Tin – Cheyanne – Wagon Train – The Rifleman – Have gun will travel –

Adventures in Paradise.

To name but a few – I remember playing on the front porch and we were talking about Grandpa –

He was little Timmy’s grandfather on “LASSIE” and he had passed away in real life.

Many shows were educational – Romper Room – and Kaptain Kangaroo!

I grew up with this cast from Captain Kangaroo!

I do not remember all the names – but the faces are still real to me.

Mr. Rogers and Captian Kangaroo

It was a morning show – as was Romper Room.

As was Commander Tom!

Commander Tom – out of Buffalo N.Y.

But Sunday nights were really special for me – at 7:00 pm.

We all gathered in the living room – my dad included.

And then the music – we only had THREE TV stations.

ABC – CBS – and NBC!

It was a magical time – before Disneyworld

The shows of Disney were the best in my mind.

I still can hear the music in my mind.

Thank you for going down memory lane with me!

It was a magical time in my youth growing up in a little town on North Main Street in ELDRED PA.

TV programs were a way for my imagination to see the rest of the country.

Even if they were in black and white.

I have many more memories of back then to tell and will in blogs to come.

Papa’s World – Push Pause – MEMORIES COME ALIVE!

My late brother – Roger and Sherry

Whenever we push pause on the TV – in a second pictures start circulating – ones we have forgotten!

It seems somehow it is tied into the cloud – and MEMORIES start a procession across the screen!

Taylor and Cassidy

At first, I just sat there and watched them roll by – then I grabbed my phone and started taking pictures.

You see – most of these have been deleted from my phone or are so far back it takes a long time –

to find them!

Today – this is Taylor!

Since I am not a “TECHIE” so to speak – Sherry explained where they were coming from!

However, it happens – I am thrilled to see them all once again.

Maddy – today she is a Junior in college.
Maddy – today she is a starter at the University of Lynchburg Women’s Soccer team
Ella – when she had her hair cut and donated.
Ella – today a Freshman at Randolph College and a starter on the Lady soccer team.

PUSH PAUSE and see the MEMORIES come forth.

I will continue in my next blog.
