an old fashioned tree

when i was a child living in toronto from 1945-1950 we had a 78 record of jean autry. on one side it was here comes santa clause. on the other i remember an old fashioned tree. well to-night my daughter purchased it on e-bay on a c.d. i told my brother and he had tears in his eyes. we were a family of 5 children me the girl in the middle of 4 boys. we went to catholic elementary school and believe me we were taught by the nuns and the brothers. so i will be able to play this for my grands and explain to them about the christmas tree in our living room. we didn't have family rooms we had living rooms. lol we had a t.v. with howdy doody. anyone else remember. so i am quite exited about this. i can't believe she found it. i could always find here comes santa clause but never an old fashioned tree. so i had to share this and maybe some of the other pacers in the agr range can also remember. take care merry merry christmas jessie

My dad got our first TV in late 1949. In Seattle, Wa. I do remember Howdy Doody and the other things you have mentioned. I also attended Catholic elementary school. And the sisters could teach albeit with a little pain at least in my case. Slow learner, LOL. Before the TV we sat around the Radio that was the big night. Listening to the Shadow and other radio shows that never quite made it to Television. It is fun to find a little nostalgia. have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Bowlrbob

It is just over 10 years since a dual lead device was implanted for complete heart block. It has worked perfectly and I have traveled well near two million miles internationally since then.
