Congradulayshuns.

I'm not worried about my beer belly.
It's coming along just fine.
I'm watching my waistline and it's easier if you get it to a position where you don't need to look as far down in your dotage.

__________________________________________________________

If you are over 50 you might enjoy this....
(If you are under 30, you are probably asking WTF???)


My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same

cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem

to get food poisoning.



My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter AND I used

to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax

paper in a brown paper bag, not in icepack coolers, but I can't remember getting e.coli.



Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake

instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.



The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell,

and a pager was the school PA system.



We all took gym, not PE... and risked permanent injury with a pair

of high top Ked's (only worn in gym) instead of having

cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in

light reflectors. I can't recall any injuries but they must have

happened because they tell us how much safer we are now..



Flunking gym was not an option... even for stupid kids! I guess PE

must be much harder than gym.



Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national

anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of

negative attention. We must have had horribly damaged psyches.



What an archaic health system we had then. Remember school

nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.



I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before

I was allowed to be proud of myself.



I just can't recall how bored we were without computers,

Play Station, Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.



Oh yeah... and where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit

when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed



We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on

vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the

48-cent bottle of Mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it

didn't sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked. Now

it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a

$49 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue

the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where

it was such a threat.



We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either because if

we did, we got our butt spanked there and then we got butt spanked again

when we got home.



I recall Donny Reynolds from next door coming over and

doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off. Little did his

Mom know that she could have owned our house. Instead, she picked

him up and swatted him for being such a goof. It was a neighborhood

run amuck.



To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been

told that they were from a dysfunctional family. How could we possibly have

known that?



We needed to get into group therapy and anger management

classes? We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills, that we

didn't even notice that the entire country wasn't taking Prozac! How did

we ever survive?



LOVE TO ALL OF US WHO SHARED THIS ERA, AND TO ALL WHO

DIDN'T- SORRY FOR WHAT YOU MISSED. I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING

Pass this to someone (over age 50, of course), and brighten

their day by helping them to remember that life's most simple pleasures

are very often the best!

Happy B, 1Bullet!

Monday will start another chapter in my life. THE DREADED DOWN HILL SIDE


I thought that dreaded down hill side was after 21. Mr. Green

Happy B-day Bullet!

Doug: great post (if your over 50). And at 37 I didn't experience them all but was fortunate enough to experience most of em.

Thanks for all the well wishes. Happy Birthday to you too Bush.
Speaking of things to remember.... My 1st car 65 Chevy Impala SS cost me 500 bucks in 1974.
Remember the Soda fountian at the Drug Store.... My Granddad had one.
10 cents would get you a small Coke...15 a Medium, and 20 cents a Large.
50 Cent burgers.....
Remember when there were no seatbelsts in cars...
As a kid you could sleep on the rear deck of your parents car while on trips and you could stand up between them when you wanted to....
metal dashboards
Not much on the FM dial
getting up to change channels on TV... No color TV...only 3 channels and you could only pick up two that were clear enough not to have to climb up on the roof to adjust the antena......
Rabbit ears.....
You had to listen to your parents music on long trips No Question
You only had one TV....
Banana seats
Gunsmoke....Bonanza....Combat....Leave it to Beaver...The Carol Burnet Show....Ed Sullivan.....
30Cent gas...
you could stop at the Gas station and get 2 dollars worth of gas and the attendent would pump it ..check your oil and clean all the windows
And the list goes on and on........
