Saturday morning television offered some of the best shows. There were times when we'd wake up earlier than usual on a Saturday morning, and be faced with the old TV test pattern. old test patternThis was a signal that television - all 4 channels . Yes, that's all we had been and they would go off the air at night - weren't ready to come on yet. How sad it was to see this horrible thing on the screen for a couple of hours moms were sleeping in. Television recognized this and provided for us, an entire culture transfered to us from TV airwaves can not be sold a bunch of crap but back in 62 we had lots and lots on Saturdays
one of my favorites showed was The Cherie Lewis Show, which featured such characters as Hush Pu Charlie Horse, Lamb Chop, and Wing Ding, a black crow. Lamb Chop, who was little more than a sock with eyes,
Rocky and Bullwinkle aventures of the two title characters, the anthropomorphic moose Bullwinkle and flying squirrel Rocky main adversaries in most of their adventures are the two Russian-like spies Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale.Supporting segments include Dudley Do-Right (a parody of old-time melodrama), Peabody's Improbable History (a dog named Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman traveling through time),
Popeye the sailor man: how ridiculous I imagine a foreign substance like spinach giving one strength and power courage I know if only there was such pill you could take or perhaps something you could drink or maybe smoke, really spinach?
My favorite was mighty mouse let's not forget Huckleberry hound and a course Yogi the Bear and I suppose we have to include think I think I just saw a puddy cat, from Tweetie, there was Yogie doggie , who did I forget?

.Advertising shall not cause moral or physical detriment to minors, and shall therefore comply with the following criteria for their protection: we see I'm not best children's programs today because FAC rules slowly prohibits direct selling minors therefore it's not profitable within the put on TV shows with their audience

the FAC rules 1987
it= means the broadcasts

a. it shall not directl it exhort minors to buy a product or a service by exploiting their inexperience or credulity;
b. it shall not directly encourage minors to persuade their parents or others to purchase the goods or services being advertised;
c. it shall not exploit the special trust minors place in parents, teachers or other persons;
d. it shall not unreasonably show minors in dangerous situations
In addition:

e. Children’s programs may only be interrupted if the scheduled duration is longer than 30 minutes
f. Product placement is not allowed in children’s programs.
g. The Member States and the Commission should encourage audiovisual media service providers to develop codes of conduct regarding the advertising of certain foods in children’s programs.

Well that pretty much killed sponsors for children's programs

\but back to 62 I was enjoying my TV shows
when all of a sudden the doorbell rang three times as it one time was not enough to put me in a state of shock everybody on our street knew my father work swing shift and the doorbell was not to be ready until 12 PM
who would do such a thing before I could even get up my mother was coming out of her room still in her nightgown and she was cursing my mother seldom occurs but I know I heard the S word from her mouth as she went to the door(I kind of felt sorry for whoever was at the other side because I knew my mother was going to kill that person) she opened the doond and there was one of our neighbors down the street who look like just woke up herself with her she had three children of her next door neighbor one of them was in my school class the other one was a little bit younger than me and the other older or older sister Judy who occasionally babysitting for us when we could not get the regular babysitter. She's apologize to my mother immediately but told her she would came over this was a real emergency and she has some very sad news Judy died last night Mrs. Blake and so much to do she wanted to know if the neighbors could take care of some of her children until the afternoon and she was wondering if my mom could help out. My mom is very saddened by the news and said she'd be more than willing to help. Now we really did not like Judy babysitting for us because she was very strict she was not like our regular babysitter Ray who was a lot of fun. He play games with us for example I had a little jungle figurines he could make us believe we were really in the jungle sort of like Dungeons & Dragons it was amazing he had a magic ring that would take us down to that level. He taught us to write stories how to sing funny songs how to make dollies. He would play games like hide and seek and we had no bedtime except a few minutes before he knew our mom and dad would be home. Now Judy play no games and she was very strict about that time she was not a lot of fun she always looked angry she had a cane with her and always threatened to hit us with it if we did not behave. What I liked about her was her little dog 's name was Precious but now she was dead ! The neighbor told us that she had died in her sleep probably a severe stroke. You know how she always had seizures you know there was probably something wrong from birth and it just now showed up anyway she think my mom and the kids(
who didn't seem to really be alarmed or upset about the death of there sister ) I think we were more,they sit down to watch TV with me and my mom went back to her room to get ready for the day she told me before she went to her room to ask the kids if they wanted to eat some cereal and if they did to help you make a bowl of cereal. I asked my mom what was a seizure? And how do I know I'm not going to die in my sleep. She said a seizure was something that happened to people when they had something wrong with them they would shake all over and not be able to control it couldn't stop it it happen automatically and she said that's ever happened to me not to worry I was okay she said something to me in this affect I don't remember the exact words but I do remember shaking and not being able to stop something your body just did a you had no control.
That week at school Judy's little sister was out the whole week. And I was sitting next to my little friends Janet and Cheryl. Ms. Spano passed out paper and we were to color a picture they were going to use it as placemats for the upcoming banquet Janet was hogging the crayons you see we shared the crayons but she would not turn them over to me I was getting upset my face was red I turned to her to tell her she was selfish to share the crayons when all of a sudden I started shaking all over over I couldn't stop what's wrong with me? I'm having one of those seizures I will probably die in my sleep soon! Oh, my God, this is it I got it! It only lasted for a few seconds actually but to my amazement, everybody in the room was looking at each other saying what was that? What happened ? Our teacher was looking out the window and she said kids that were an earthquake.

Boy years later I found out that Rocky Flats was putting chemicals into the ground but it's like they do with the like fracking .
Anyway, this story happened a few months before we were hiding under our chairs and desks from nuclear bombs which are an another story.
