Z is for Zenith…

z4pThere was a little girl who

was so excited about getting a TV.

Most of her friends already had TV’s
and it seem so unfair that she didn’t.

One day Daddy came home with a Zenith TV!


She could hardly wait to watch The Lone Ranger, Annie Oakley,
Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and The Cisco Kid.

When the TV was all set up and turned on
first Daddy had to watch the Evening News and then
it was time for the little girl to go to bed.

She cried but still had to go to bed,
it was a school night.

Finally, one day she got to watch The Lone Ranger.
She sat in front of that TV and could hardly contain herself.

There he was the Lone Ranger, and Tonto, too.
They looked pretty good except for the white duds the Ranger wore.
She liked Tonto’s clothes, though.

But when she watched the story it was not
nearly as good as the stories on the radio.

She was very disappointed.
Same with all the other Westerns.

The cartoons were fun and the Saturday afternoon
Tarzan movies were good.
She liked Lawrence Welk, Ed Sullivan, and Queen for a Day.

But still TV was such a let down.

The little girl was not impressed with TV.
Her imagination was so much better than what TV had to offer.

  1. That little girl has told a lot of stories in April.
    I agree TV isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. Especially these days. I rather read in my spare time as well.

  2. I was a TV nut when I was a kid. Fortunately we had limited viewing options so I wasn’t planted in from of the set all the time–but enough.

    Congratulations on making it to the end of the Challenge..

    1. I was never crazy about the TV and don’t have one now. The challenge was fun. This is the second year I had a “theme”.
      Definitely makes it a bit less challenging.
