I just turned 46 and also had one of these with the 16K expansion. Got it for Xmas in 82 or 83 I believe. Like you, this was also my first introduction to basic. To the best of memory, this started for me by hacking into frogger and increasing the number of lives. My brother and I were soon writing simple programs, self taught. We had a lot of fun trying to write D&D "role playing" style war games. We never completed anything, but learned a great deal and had a lot of fun doing so.
