We had a big black and white television set in an Early American style hard rock maple cabinet. The front of the speakers was covered in a gold threaded fabric and it had the four knobs mentioned above. We got a total of four stations, two of which were fuzzy with snow unless you adjusted the rabbit ear antenna and squished aluminum foil just right on the tips and then they came in just fine.
Our set had a habit of losing its hold and the picture would start to flip, flicker, and fade. A little adjustment of the horizontal hold button and it was back in business. More often than not it would loose its vertical hold and the picture would wibble and wobble in long vertical waves.
I was thinking about this as I stepped out of bed this morning and dearly wished I had a vertical hold button to stop the wibbling and wobbling sensation I felt while trying to remain vertical. All this reminiscing said to say that I am some better but need a few more days to adjust myself and then the picture of perfect health should appear and be all clear.
I thank you all for all your precious messages of well being. I have been so sick I have not even been on the computer until today. I ended up with a terrible flu-like bug and wished that my old TV hero, Marcus Welby MD would come and doctor me. With all the strangeness of a cheesy Sci-fi thriller, I then thought I had entered The Twilight Zone and aliens must be doing probing experiments on my poor aching head when I awoke from a sudden sleep with searing brain pain - a lovely migraine to cap off the flu. Then as if that was not enough, I became Bewitched! or at least my nose started to twitch like a witch followed by spells of sneezes and allergy wheezes!
I am sufficiently stuffy, shaky, and my head is still a little quaky but other than that I am just fine. It seems as if this is now a Family Affair as Handy Hubby is not feeling so bubbly. Too bad we don't have Mr. French to take care of us. I am vertical and holding!
I hope each of you have a healthy and happy weekend!
