HOW’S THIS FOR NOSTALGIA?

The girls had ugly gym uniforms?
Picture
It took three minutes for the TV to warm up?
Picture
Nobody owned a purebred dog?
Picture
When a quarter was a decent allowance?
Picture
You’d reach into a muddy gutter for a penny?
Picture
Your Mom wore nylons that came in two pieces?
Picture
You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time?
And you didn’t pay for air? And, you got trading stamps to boot?
Picture
Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels
hidden inside the box?
Picture
It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to
dinner at a real restaurant with your parents?
Picture
They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they
failed…and they did it!
Picture
When a 57 Chevy was everyone’s dream car… to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races, and people went steady
Picture
No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked?
Picture
Lying on your back in the grass with your friends
and saying things like, ‘That cloud looks like a…’?
Picture
Playing baseball with no adults to help kids with the
rules of the game?
Picture
Stuff from the store came without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger?
Picture
And with all our progress, don’t you just wish, just once,
you could slip back in time and savor the slower pace,
and share it with the children of today.
Picture
When being sent to the principal’s office was nothing
compared to the fate that awaited the student at home?
Picture
Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn’t because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat!
But we survived because their love was greater than the
threat.
Picture
…as well as summers filled with bike rides, Hula Hoops,
and visits to the pool, and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar.
Picture
Didn’t that feel good, just to go back and say,
‘Yeah, I remember that’?
Picture
I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a
Double Dog Dare to pass it on. To remember what a
Double Dog Dare is, read on. And remember that the
perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know
better and too young to care.
Send this on to someone who can still remember Howdy Doody and The Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, The Shadow knows, Nellie Bell, Roy and Dale, Trigger and Buttermilk.

Do You Remember a Time When…
 

Decisions were made by going ‘eeny-meeny-miney-moe’?
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, ‘Do
Over!’?
‘Race issue’ meant arguing about who ran the
fastest?

Picture
Catching The Fireflies Could Happily Occupy An Entire
Evening?
Picture
It wasn’t odd to have two or three ‘Best Friends’?
Picture
Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a
Slingshot?
Picture
Saturday morning cartoons weren’t 30-minute commercials for action figures?

cause for giggles?

Picture
War was a card game?
Picture
Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into
a motorcycle?

Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their Grown-Up’ Life . .
I Double-Dog-Dare-Ya!
