And it's not just physical. I came across this image today....<br><img alt="" src="http://www.mediacollege.com/video/test-patterns/television/indianhead640x480.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Oh sure it is from a pretty happy time in my life (as a kid waiting for cartoons to come on), but when you do the math as to how many years ago that was...

We used to see if we could create songs with all the different sounds from the test patterns on tv after hours...

I used to like the sound that the test pattern made when the TV went off for the evening. Why did they even do that? Why not just go dark? There are times when I think it should be resurrected.

I remember both test patterns.<br><br>
The first one from the TV station in Bangor, Maine that ran Howdy Doody re-runs when I was at my gramma's house.<br><br>
The second from the Portland TV station that was newah and fanciah.

If that came on while I was babysitting, it meant that I would feel RICH the next day....late night!!<br><br>
It also meant that I scrounged the bookshelves for something to read, and that was when one time, I found some really nice sex books at one family's house. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><br><br>
I got back from the eye doctor today, where I found out that I need to move to progressive lenses. I think that means I AM old, now.<br><br>
I've already changed the resolution on my computer monitor, but it was getting to where I couldn't see my watch while running, or the bike computer while riding. And, my arms are starting to get too short to read in bed. (*Sigh*) I remember my mom and dad talking about when that happened to them.
