Those who were born in the 30's to the 60's are the last generations who played in the street. During our childhood we "walked" over a mile a day when we played & played "hide & seek" outside at night with no worries or fear of anything bad happening to us.

We are the first generation who played video games and the last to record songs off the radio onto a cassette tape. We learned how to program a VCR before anyone else, we were the first to play from Atari to Nintendo.We are the generation of Tom & Jerry, Looney Toons, & Captain Kangaroo. We traveled in cars without seat belts or air bags, lived without cell phones and caller ID. We did not have fax machines, flat screens, surround sound, I pods, Facebook, Twitter, computers or the internet, and through it all we had a great time.

Don't forget...we also drank out of hoses and played with our neighbors until suppertime! :-) Yes, I'm part of that generation. I walked to school with my neighbors, although sometimes we rode our bikes! THOSE were the days!

Wonderful facts, well documented. :)

It is true! I think there's a lot of over-worrying today, but things like car seats and seat-belts have made a huge difference in road safety so those are good things. I hope you're having a great weekend - the dogs and I just got back from a walk in the new neighborhood!

You got that all right. But we had polio, the Cold War, institutional racism, unfair treatment of women in the workplace (which continues), horrible dental instrument, and we lacked many facets of health care which make living longer possible. :)

It was a long time ago, Sylvia, I can't remember any of it.

Thanks for your visits while I was away. I'm back now but got lots to do before heading north.

A good time indeed! Now we are all dotty by the cell phones!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
