Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..March 28th

March 28th……“GRANDPA, DID YOU HAVE A TELEVISION ON YOUR FARM IN YOUR YOUNG MINNESOTA DAYS? WHAT HAPPENED IF IT BROKE DOWN”?

POEM – “The TV Guy Came By” by N. Elliott Noorlun

Ahhhhh for the days,

When the TV guy,

Would hear our call,

And to our house would fly.

1958 found Jim Engebretson as a Senior at Kiester High School AND helping out at Ralph’s Radio & TV Store.

With big tool box,

Full of tubes galore,

He’d spread them out,

O’er the Living Room floor.

For the television sets,

Back in our time,

Used to weigh so much,

It was almost a crime.

But with a twist of tools,

And a fuse tube or two,

T’weren’t long before,

Our TV was as good as new!!! 😉
