Just in case you weren’t feeling old enough today…..

The people who are starting college this fall were born in 1990.

They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

The CD was introduced two years before they were born.

They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable..

Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

Popcorn has always been microwaved.

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

They don’t know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard: ‘Where’s the Beef?’, ‘I’d walk a mile for a Camel ’, or ‘de plane Boss, de plane’.

McDonald’s never came in Styrofoam containers.

They don’t have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.

Okay Jim, I think you need new shoes! But I do have to say, I work in a school, in the attendance office. Kids come in everyday to sign in late or leave early and they stare at the clock and some have to ask, what time is it? They can not read a clock unless it’s digetal. What’s up with that? I watch them, they look at the clock and just stare, trying to figure it out and then sometimes still have to ask, what time is it? Just another sign of how old we are, I guess. Or what???

Gee Larry, I sure feel sorry for all those immature inexperienced young folks. I guess their world will be a lot different than ours has been. Of course most of you on this site don’t remember WWII. I owned a 1940 Ford coupe (with an Oldsmobile V8 engine) when I was 16yrs. old. That car was the same age as me.My best friend had a Ford Model A coup for daily transportation and it wasn’t even restored! I remember when dishwashers first came in. My mother said she didn’t know what the big deal was, but after a week she said she couldn’t live without it. I remember flying with United Airlines when they only had propeller planes. When I was a kid on my grandparents farm in 1944-1945 living there with the women while all the men where at war, we didn’t have electricity or running water. We had two plow horses and a hay wagon. The cows were milked by hand. We went to town 6 miles away on a dirt road in a Ford Model A sedan every Saturday night. This was in Onamia Minnesota. Slot machines were legal there, but Indians were not allowed to play them! I don’t mind being old because being retired has given me the opportunity to enjoy my woodworking hobby and I feel privileged to have lived in simpler, but much more optimistic times.

Great David. How about Dr. Kildare, Buelah, The whistler, The Shadow, The Lone Ranger. The Cisco Kid, G-Men, Spade Cooley, Sky King, The Creaking Door, Grand Ole Oprey, Henry Aldrich, Red Ryder and a host of others? I heard all of these on the latest entertainment equipment. It was called the radio, and it’s stilling going strong. We don’t get rid of things (except video tapes and cassettes thank goodness) we just keep adding on. Oh! and I forgot, The Lux Radio Theatre which we listened to once a week on the battery powered radio on the farm. I heard “The Yearling” on that one, I think before the movie was made. Great fun.
