    Stay with this -- the answer is at the end -- it will blow you away.

    One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current
    events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the
    shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

    The Grandma replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:

    § television,

    § penicillin,

    § polio shots,

    § frozen foods,

    § Xerox,

    § contact lenses,

    § Frisbees and

    § the pill.

    There was no:

    § radar,

    § credit cards,

    § laser beams or

    § ball-point pens.

    Man had not invented:

    § pantyhose,

    § air conditioners,

    § dishwashers,

    § clothes dryers,

    § and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and

    § man hadn't yet walked on the moon.



    Your Grandfather and I got married first-and then lived together.

    Every family had a father and a mother.

    Until I was 25, I called every man older than I, 'Sir'- and after I
    turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, "Sir.'

    We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare
    centers, and group therapy.

    Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and
    common sense.

    We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to
    stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

    Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a
    bigger privilege.

    We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.

    Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

    Draft dodgers were people who closed their front doors when the evening
    breeze started.

    Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and
    weekends-not purchasing condominiums.



    We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters,
    yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

    We listened to the Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches
    on our radios.

    And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to
    Tommy Dorsey.

    If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan ' on it, it was junk.

    The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam.

    Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.

    We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and
    10 cents.

    Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar (3 cents for kids),
    and a Pepsi were all a nickel.

    And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough
    stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

    You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600 but who could afford one?

    Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

    In my day:

    § "grass" was mowed,

    § "coke" was a cold drink,

    § "pot" was something your mother cooked in and

    § "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.

    § "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,

    § " chip" meant a piece of wood,

    § "hardware" was found in a hardware store and

    § "software" wasn't even a word.




    And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a
    husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us "old and confused" and
    say there is a generation gap... and how old do you think I am?

    I bet you have this old lady in mind...you are in for a shock!

    Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at
    the same time.




    This Woman would be only 58 years

    No wonder I remember life making so much more sense when I was younger!! As I've thought; I was born right at/after the end of this era!
