How old is Grandma?
How old is Grandma?

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 Grandmother 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 were no:

' credit cards
' laser beams or
' ball-point pens

Man had not yet 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 me, "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 those who closed front doors as 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, CD's, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

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

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 (5 and dime) stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, 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 Ford 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.

We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.

We volunteered to protect our precious country.

No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.

How old do you think I am?


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

Are you ready?????

This woman would be only 60 years old.
She would have been born in late 1952.

GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

This made me think a lot. The things she mentioned here, we cannot even imagine our life without it. I feel whether there will be a day when I will also need to tell my grand children about some thing like this?

Re: How old is Grandma?
My Grandma is 101....and still remembers when her dad acquired a homestead in the black hills of South Dakota and built their first log cabin, later becoming a one room schoolhouse when they built their second home. They had a huge garden and pig farm and used to trade with a rancher neighbor for his beef. The mailman drove a horse and buggy and it would weave down the road as he read the mail he delivered. She saw Calvin Coolidge come to town. Someone had painted the horses gold that pulled his coach and being a hot day, both horses dropped dead from it. She remembers seeing the Native Americans on the land. For fun as a child, they used to bend small juniper trees and ride up and down on them. A different time indeed.....
