Great price for the service call, but woe to the home television enthusiast when it "has to go back to the shop." I recall the dismay I felt, coming home from school one day to find an empty cabinet where my TV picture tube had been. No more Colonel Caboose, no more Saturday morning cartoons! It was interminable, or at least it seemed that way for a child of 7 years old. But evidently, I survived. Who knows, I might have even opened a book!
