For the oldies in here ;)

DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN...?

All the girls had ugly gym uniforms?

It took five minutes for the TV warm up?



Nearly everyone's Mum was at home when the kids got home from school?

Nobody owned a purebred dog?



When a a shilling was a decent allowance?

You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny?

Your Mum wore stockings that came in two pieces?

All your male teachers wore ties and female teachers had
their hair done every day and wore high heels?




You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and petrol pumped,
without asking, all for free, every time?
And you didn't pay for air?

Cereals had free toys hidden inside the box?

It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner
at a real restaurant with your parents?

They threatened to keep kids back a year if they failed. . .and they did?



When a 66 Ford was everyone's dream car?
No one ever asked where the car keys were
because they were always in the car,
in the ignition, and the doors were never locked?


Lying on your back in the grass with your friends
and saying things like, "That cloud looks like a ."

and playing footy with no adults to help kids with the rules of the game?

Stuff from the shop came without safety caps and hermetic seals
because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger?

And with all our progress, don't you just wish, just once,
you could slip back in time and savour the slower pace,
and share it with the children of today?

When being sent to the principal's office was nothing
compared to the fate that awaited the student at home?
Basically we were in fear for our lives,
but it wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc.

Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat!
But we survived because their love was greater than the threat.

Send this on to someone who can still remember
Nancy Drew, Laurel and Hardy, The Famous Five
Secret Seven, Biggles,
the Lone Ranger, Phantom,
Roy and Dale and Trigger.


As well as summers filled with bike rides, cricket games,
Hula Hoops, monkey bars, jilgying, visits to the beach and "conversation" lollies.

Actually I remember we had a TV, actually still do...but it's broken...that used to flicker for ages before it finally decided to stop and show a proper image after over 5 minutes a lot of the time! Being a youngun, it was annoying!
