1. I remember my grandfather having HBO (West Virginia) in the mid to late '70's

Actual cable too not "the West Virginia State flower" satellite dish.

Holiday dinner at the grandparents. The entire family was there. We watched "A Bridge Too Far". All the cousins laying on the floor while dinner was being made in the kitchen. Pappaw sitting in his chair by the window. WWII vet who spent 2 years at The Greenbrier healing from wounds. Worked in a heavy industrial nickel plant. Read constantly. He probably had "Ulysses" or "The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire" or something like that beside his chair as we watched the movie.

Man, those were the days.
