I was 12 at the time and staying at my grand parents house in Carlsbad,
New Mexico (where I was born and raised...not Holbrook). They had a
nice color console TV then as my aunt lived with them and she was a
little more hi-tech than they were. Anyway, I remember my grandma
asking, "What are you watching?" as she was quilting, crocheting or
whatever she was doing. When we told her that we were watching men
walking on the moon, she replied, "That's impossible! I don't believe
that." We told her to "watch the TV, it's there....they are doing it
now." She refused to believe it all. She probably would have made a
good Capricorn 1 conspirator. ;-)

BTW-I remember the first color TV show that I had viewed....Bonanza,
about 1961 or 2? The quality wasn't that good as everyone was kind of
purple and lots of green (Loren) in the background. I do remember
SkyKing in black and white....it was one of my faves.

OK, I'm done.
