ooooooooooooh...Atari 2.....
We had pong for the longest time & finally got cool when we got the first Atari, played, of course, on my parent's portable color TV (which had rabbit ears)

I think that may have been around the time we got our first microwave. Now that was fascinating.

I remember picking up our first microwave at Sears. That thing must have weighed 100 lbs. That's back when they made counters in new houses known as "microwave counters" so that you would have a nook to store it in.

Ah yes, the nook.

And, I remember asking if TV dinners could go in the new microwave so we wouldn't have to wait an hour to eat them. Mom laughed and said that would never work, since they had foil trays.
