65. easy there...
at that time(1979), I could not afford one; I had moved to go to college, and was on a very tight budget- I did not even have a car. For sometime after college, Hubby and I were quite poor; we thought being able to buy a boom box to play cassette tapes was extravagant.

Having gotten used to listening to radio then, I continued to do so. Now I am rather fond of streaming BBC and Deutsche Welle, and listening to Democracy Now. So I am not disconnected, just very selective. I find I have more time for crafts and music without the tube.

My choice now is cable modem or cable TV, I cannot afford both, and there is no TV reception in our area. So computers it is.
