No, I'm sitting in the pew with my siblings where She could keep an eye on us from the choir loft. Maybe I dozed. Maybe I took apart an ink pen and played with the parts, imagining space ships landing and taking off again on the hard polished runway made of oak or pecan. 
Maybe I read the hymnal or program or, gasp! the Bible; there in the book slot. Heck it could have been a toothpaste tube and I would try to read the ingredients.
But I digress.
The one thing to get my attention would be the music.
She was a singer. Dear God, had you blessed her. She had a rapturous voice and when She soloed the hair stood up on the back of my neck.
What a voice; silent now but for the memories locked in my heart. Carried out into space by the future.
She would be 86 today. I love Her so.

They forgot to invent color TV in this vision of the future - everything else looks pretty cool though:

My parents got a 16" b/w Zenith TV around 1956. That was the only TV in our house until 1979—and none of that fancy outdoor antenna stuff, mind you. When my dad finally cracked and brought into the family room an inherited color TV , connected to an outdoor antenna, I felt like a North Korean defector brought into the modern world.

The Three Stooges! Star Trek! Bruins hockey! 

Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken;
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He stared at the Pacific—and all his men
Look'd at each other with a wild surmise—
Silent, upon a peak in Darien.

I got suckered in a similar way. I was about four when "Flipper" came on and the announcer would say "In Living Color!" Almost every time I would get this surge of hope: were we going to get Living Color?!?!

I remember the Disney intro too. That was great. Wasn't Kurt Russell always starring in a Disney movie as a kid? Couldn't get away from him. 

I saw Batman the TV show later on as reruns. That show was MADE for color. The crazy sets and costumes. The cartoon-like characters and the zany "Pow" graphics. A shame it lasted for only three seasons. Adam West and Burt Ward swung pretty hard during their stardom...
