How Old is Grandma? The world was a better place in the past, guess her age!

How Old is Grandma?

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 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.
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, 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.




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.
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.

Are you ready?????





This woman would be only 59 years old, Born in 1952.

GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT. PASS THIS ON TO THE OLD ONES. THE YOUNG ONES WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
1. Mass arrests of elites are ongoing, so don't worry be happy!
2. Banker resignations are in the hundreds and at that rate, victory by May!
3. NESARA, disclosure, ascension are all possible this year, be open minded!
4. Robogirls that look/act human and artificial wombs will burst the misandry bubble and free men!

Well, it is moronic...

Television was created long before she was born.. and from there the list falls apart and shows how much of a sheeple the OP is

I remember the early 1950s and we had some of those things. But, overall the list is good.

My great Aunt just turned 100, and she is extremely active and bright.

The secret to her longevity -> She has always eaten like a sparrow.

All she wanted for her birthday -> To die.

BS, I was born in the fifties, life wasn't as rosy as it is painted but I will admit it had it's charm and benefits.

People were still people, they were not all saints, or got along. Family strife was just as prevalent then as it is today.

So before you start thinking you are missing out on something, stop and think, you choose how you will view the world when you get older.

If you choose to have a family life and see the world as against you, you will not have a positive outlook on today's society.

If you choose to create a world of harmony with family and friends then you will have a positive outlook on those of us that inhabit the world today.

So from one of those that came from that era, we all had many ups and downs, it's called life.

Choose wisely.

That list is not right if she was born in 1952

Television was invented in 1926 and the first broadcasts were in 1935

 Quoting: Aunty Flo



All those that seek longevity should live to be 100.
One's perspective on life does indeed change as you age.

I had an Auntie that live to 103. She was great until they moved her out of her house and into a home.

As soon as they did that all she wished for was death. It was sad but at the same time she was really, really done with being here and needed to move on.

She attributed her longevity to her shot of sherry every evening, lol.

Happy Birthday to your Aunt, enjoy her while you can.

Thankyou hf

She lives in England, so I've only visited her a few times.

People that age are so accepting and calm about death. They have seen so many of their friends and family fall away, and they KNOW they will be meeting them all again.
