Hey, Carolina how many days do you consider a few?

The other day my husband and I took my grandson to see Monsters Vs. Aliens and the Fast and the Furious opened. As we came out of the movies there were kids acting crazy in their cars and my first thought was they should know better. My second thought was "Oh, no I have become one of "them". "Them" being that older generation that rains on your parade. It was just yesterday (yeah right) that I was the kid. Have you had a defining moment yet?

Baby's First Doctor Visit

This made me laugh out loud. I hope it will give you a smile!

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam.

The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.

'Breast-fed,' she replied.

'Well, strip down to your waist,' the doctor ordered.

She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination.

Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said, 'No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk.'

I know,' she said, 'I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came.'

Comments made in the year 1955!
That's only 53 years ago!

'I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20.00.

'Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $2, 000.00 will only buy a used one.

'If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. 25 cents a pack is ridiculous..

'Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 10 cents just to mail a letter

'If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.

'When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.

'I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it.

'Did you see 'I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas ..

where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President.

'I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now.

'It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.

'It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

'I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.

'Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government.

'The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

'There is no sense going on short trips anymore for a weekend, it costs nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

'No one can afford to be sick anymore, at $35.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.'

'If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it.'

I remember carbon paper.

I remember the smell of the mimeograph.

I know why we “dial” a phone number or “turn” it to a certain television channel.

I remember the fading “dot” when you turned off the television.

I used to draw against Matt Dillon in the opening credits of “Gunsmoke,” and won every time (of course, I was just using my finger, while he had a real gun).

I’ve illegally copied music by holding a tape recorder up to an AM radio.

… And that you used to have to push “record” and “play” buttons to get it to record.

I’ve opened a can of Spam with a key (and tuna fish too).

I remember when milk was delivered to your door in pint &quart sized glass bottles.

I’ve opened a bank account with one dollar.

I remember some relatives not having an indoor toilet.

I remember the insurance man coming every few months to collect a weekly premium.

I know there used to be leaded petrol.

You could only get watermelon in the summer.

I remember adjusting roller skates with a skate key.

I remember phone booths.

Crushing beer can took a LOT more effort, because they were made out of tin instead of aluminum.

When you returned empty drinks bottles, they sent them back to the factory to get refilled… and you got your deposit back.

Sorry for the delay. I'm to the age remembering what one is supposed to do is chancy at best. smile.gif In other words, I forgot about it till today.

Who was Boston Blackie and what kind of car did he drive. Boston Blackie was a detective on a radio show that became a TV show. He drove a Jaguar XK120.

Red Ryder was a popular fictional cowboy hero who started out in comic books then moved to radio, then movies and finally to TV. The best known iteration of Ryder was played by Wild Bill Elliot. In this series of movies, Ryder's Navajo friend Little Beaver was played by Little Bobby Blake who started in the show business in the Hal Roach comedy movie series Our Gang. When this series moved to TV, it was called The Little Rascals.

When the Soviets closed the road and rail line from West Germany to Berlin, the city was supplied by the Berlin Airlift.

What were Victory Gardens? During WWII, many food supplies were limited and rationed because the food was shipped over seas for the trrops. People were urged to grow their own food in a Victory Garden to help the war effort.

Before the mid fifties, many families avoided crowds in the summer for fear of polio .

I guess I am not a I think because I didn't know any of those. I guess Red Ryder wasn't that B-B gun after all.

Well this makes me look old I do remember all of those. My grandmother Davis had the outhouse on the farm and my grandmother King had one in town. I can remember when they both got indoor bathrooms.

As for that part time job hope to hear something this week as the lady that I had too talk is on vacation and will be back on Monday.

This was funny and not like that has happened too me,but I have gone to Dr visits with my daughter. I did have fun when I helped my daughter move into her collage dorm. The RA came into the room and introduced himself to us and was telling about the get together that was planned for all new freshman that evening. Said they would have food and drinks and hoped he would see us there. Well my daughter told him that I was her mother and I would be going back home, he told that was too bad but I was more then welcome to come anyway. It was always fun when I went up there to get her for the week-end getting invited to all kinds of parties that she always had to spoil the fun and tell them I was her mother. Some of the kids didn't seem too care said I could come anyway.LOL

You were close. The BB gun was named after the cowboy.

How about "Pinkey Lee?" That was a kids show on the first TV I saw. (A 6 or 7 inch round screen with a sliding magnifier in front of it.) Also the "Howdy Doody show". That is many years ago! There used to be a Circus show on sundays and the broadcast in our area was about two hours in the evening and 4 or 5 on Sat. and Sun. I think news was a half hour then.
