January 25, 2018

Howdy y'all! It's Thursday Thirteen time again! Hope January has been good to you. Been colder than a frozen horned owl here in SW Virginia.

Thursday Thirteen is the easy meme where all you do is write 13 things on Thursday. You can check out a list of topics at the top if you aren't thinking well today. :-)

Sign up with Mr. Linky after Today's Fact and we'll come around and visit you.
Today's Fact

On January 25, 1947, Thomas Goldsmith, Jr. filed a patent for a Cathode Ray Tube Amusement Device, an interactive missile simulator game to be played on a screen. Prototypes were made and the patent awarded the following year, but no commercial models were ever released. This is the first known video game.

And here's Mr. Linky!


  1. Can’t do a 13 this week, but I wanted to say that someone probably bought the patent and then sat on it. It’s done all the time. 😼✌🏻

  2. Getting the Valentine decorations out for the holiday made me think romance shouldn't be just one day a year. Check out my list about Love Notes.


Welcome to Thursday Thirteen, and thanks for playing!
