Today my post is about memories as a young girl watching television with my family. It would start off with a black and white set of course because in those days that is how it was.
You always had to watch what the parents watched because there was only one set in the house..Can you believe it? Only one TV. The Dad when in the house had the charge of the set...what no remote control???NO Remote control they hadn't been invented yet.
My earliest memories sitting with Daddy would be of Westerns, WWII Shows and that is about it. One of the Shows he would watch was The Rat Patrol. I imagine with good reason he had come home from fighting that war and did start out in Africa in doing so this show was quite interesting to him. We did have color Television before this show came out thankfully.
A notable enemy on the show
Hauptmann (Captain) Hans Dietrich
A dedicated, but honorable German officer and the Patrol's main nemesis. by the end of the series it becomes clear that Dietrich, although a cunning opponent, never stoops to the cruel methods of fellow Nazi officers. Gudegast later became famous as a soap opera star under the pseudonym Eric Braeden born Hans Gudegast in Kiel, Germany, during WWII.
So began my love affair with Hans, Eric, "VICTOR NEWMAN"
Melody Thomas Scott as Nikki Newman (my favorite of course)
Eric Braeden as Victor Newman (my hero)
Chris, Lisa, and Nancy Hughes
As The World Turns
Charita Bauer & Hubby
The Guiding Light
I love it when the men you know come in when you are watching and of course no manly man would ever watch a soap opera but they can't help but say," What is Victor doing now? " No they don't ever watch that stuff.
Part two coming up with photos of When Dolly met Victor or Eric!
