Here you'll learn a little something about us: our interests and hobbies, the people in our family, and more. I've even included
a list of my favorite links to the 50s sites.
This was my first new car.
1957 Chevy Bel Air Sport Coupe model with the 283 V-8 Power Pack engine
Black & White TV
You could hardly see for all the snow
So you spread the rabbit ears far as they'd go,
a chair up to the TV set,
"Good night David, Good night Chet."
Depending on the channel
You'd get Rob and Laura or Ward and June,
Or Andy Griffith and Barney Fife,
or This Is Your Life.
I Love Lucy and The Real McCoys,
Dennis the Menace and the Cleaver boys.
Rawhide, Gunsmoke, Wagon Train,
Superman and Lois Lane.
Father Knows Best and Patty Duke,
Rin Tin Tin and Lassie too,

Where everything always turned out right.

In living color or on the screens.

And life doesn't always turn out right.

In a TV world of '63.
It felt so good, it felt so right,
Life looked better in black and
I'd trade all the channels on the satellite
If I could just turn back the clock tonight
To when everybody knew wrong from right -
Life was better in black and white!
