    Wrong answer kiddo, If you had a phone and a TV you where not poor. For 10 years we had neither, nor missed them. Seat belts was what Dad did if we misbehaved. We got belted.

    Well, then we must have been poor and I think our tv only had two channels. But we did get an extra long cord for the phone! That was a big deal!

    Anybody within traveling distance to Kenosha Wisconsin- I hope you’ve taken note of the box up there to the right, and you’ll come see me at the festival. Frankly, I’d love to seed the audience with Buckets fans, otherwise, it’s gonna be all ‘Pearls Before Swine’ fans, and you know what that leads to.

    I’m a fan of Stephan’s strip myself, of course, I just wanna make sure The Buckets has some good representation there, too. As for the border laws, well, I suppose most folks wish all that hadn’t happened, and the few that are glad are pretty unpleasant people.

    Everybody was POOR then, compared to what people have now. The fact is, nobody (in this country, anyway) is poor in the sense anymore that it used to be defined, i.e., you don’t have a place to live, enough to eat, enough to wear, etc… We have so many social services now that the only reason for being poor in the true sense is just that someone isn’t aware of what available. Now being poor is defined as not having more than one flat screen TV, as not being able to live an upper middle class lifestyle.

    Well, I suppose in his day, anyone with a TV at all was considered “rich” by comparison. :-s

    Only three channels? I figured Grandpa would be old enough to remember the Dumont Network.

    Exactly. It’s sad, to be honest. I’ve been on the street. I’ve been given second and third chances (I was homeless 2 times).

    We Were Not Poor!!! That telephone cord could stretch from the kitchen to almost every room in the house! You could get almost 5 gallons of gas for, gee what did I spend? a dollar?. Best (compared to now) was Saturday night at the movies with your pals, including gas for the car and popcorn & drink – $5 each. …. wow… forgot how cheap that was.
