As previously mentioned, I rarely watch TV these days.  Between my  WQXR and Idagio apps, and as long as I have internet access (or the unlimited data on my phone) I am generally  content.

That being said, Alicia likes  game shows and I do enjoy teaming up with her to try to beat the contestants, on those rare evenings that I am home.  Family business is usually handled during commercials, but not during every commercial.

Last night, while watching “America Says”  I saw the commercial below, had a flashback and then teared up a bit.

I recalled the countless times we were driving around and as a young boy, I would give the “honk your airhorn” signal to truckers as we passed them by.  It was quite a thing back in the 1960’s-70’s and maybe still is today.

Things seemed so much simpler back then. Maybe they weren’t, but that’s how I remember it.  I can barely fathom being an adult today, never mind being a child. I recall my dad telling me the same thing at some point.

It must be a “generational thing”.

It made me think . . . wouldn’t it be great if we could all be puppies?  (no, I have not been drinking this morning)

    I used to try and get truck drivers to honk all the time. Seems like they should teach that in truck driving school…

    These really are brilliant commercials. I watched the compilation of Subaru ads.
