It was early
in the 1950's when television came to Baba & Dzedo Briscar's house in
Lemont. Delores would have no part of the little rabbit ears antenna.
Here she is high on the roof installing an outdoor antenna. I
remember the 9-inch Dumont TV with the beautiful wood cabinet, and of
course, 2 or 3 channels. That's all that was available then
says: My mother sure wasn't
afraid of heights. She would check out her roof at her house. She
painted the outside of her house with no problem climbing on a ladder.
You wouldn't catch wimpy me on a ladder!!
