We are all survivors,consider the changes we have witnessed.
We were born before television,penicillin,polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox,contact lenses,frisbees and the Pill.
We were before radar,credit cards, laser beams and ballpoint pens.
We were before panty hose,dish washers,clothes driers, electric blankets,air conditioners,drip dry clothing and man walking on the moon.
We got married first then lived together, how quaint can you be?!
We were before house husbands,gay rights, computer dating and dual careers.
We were before daycare centres, group therapy,shopping malls and nursing homes.
We had never heard of FM radio,tape decks, electric typewriters,artificial hearts,word processors, mobile phones,email,yogurt and guys wearing ear rings.
For us Time Sharing meant togetherness not computers or condominiums.
A Chip meant a piece of wood
Hardware meant hardware and software was not even a word.
In 1950 'made in Japan' meant junk and the term 'making out'referred to how you did in an exam or interview.
Pizza, Mc Donalds and instant coffee were unheard of.
In our day cigarette smoking was fashionable,grass was mown, coke was a cold drink and pot was a thing you cooked in.
Rock music was Grandma's lullaby and aids were helpers in the Principal's office
We were certainly not before the difference between the sexes was discovered but we were surely before the 'sex change'.
We made do with what we had and were the last generation that were so dumb as to think you needed a husband to have a baby.
But we survived ! What better reason to celebrate! Cheers!
The above was given to me by D.Aisling and as it is too wet to go out in the garden I thought I would share it with you.
