Better late than never - but what can you expect from a geezer who remembers when half the population of the United States didn't have "flush toilets"?

There was NO television, there were 8-10 people on one telephone and they called it a "party line". Talk about making sure that nothing personal gets on the Internet, when you took a call (our ring was one long and three short rings), at least half of the other families on your line were listening. By the next day, everyone in your community knew more about your life than you did.

Not only did you have to make your dinner from scratch, but if you were having fried chicken, you first had to catch the chicken.

Other things are too mind boggling to even mention.

But it makes the life I've led all the more marvelous for the things I've seen.

Polio is now "wild" in four countries - and other medical improvements are simply unbelievable.

I personally met Dr. DeBakey in Houston (one of the first cardio surgeons to do open heart surgery) - up close and personal. My case was still less than the 1000th.

I would say I want to bear Louis' children, but I don't have time for the trip to Cali... Besides, they'd just be spoiled idiots anyway.

Yeah, but there was that one great, glorious moment from the late 60's to the early 70's when all the STD's were curable...
How do you ever get accustomed to rubbers? I still don't get it. Dental dams and rubbers, yuck. They TASTE so bad. This is NOT a good time for promiscuity. I had the best, wildest, most fun sex life in the world.
And along came AIDS.
Sigh. I mean, sex was generally a very dangerous sport for most of human history- syphilis and gonorrhea would kill. We had that one bright moment... and then along came herpes and AIDS.
Somebody should DO something.

emoticon So glad I missed the 60's! lol! I was born in 1970. Therefore, I do have a few extra brain cells that can be nuked by the microwave and cell phones! yeah!

I think we got our first microwave in the mid to late '80's. Dishwasher didn't come until after I moved out of the house and my mom still didn't like to use it because it didn't do a great job washing the dishes-according to her!

And yes, I still prefer using my stove/oven for cooking in-but yep. Throwing a baked potato in the microwave for 6 minutes does do in a pinch! lol!

Every Time I hear that dirty word "Exercise" I wash my mouth out with "Chocolate" !!!!!!!!

Success is succeeding one more time than you fail!

I'm on a low-crap diet and a get-off-your-butt exercise plan.

I have lost myself, I have gone to find myself, should I return before I get back, Please have me wait!

If you are going through hell, keep going.

Whatever brain cells were not destroyed in the 60's by all the street drugs, have now been wiped out by the microwave and cell phone.

I could dump the phone, but not "Mr. Mikey"

I don't know how many times I've gone to get supper fixed, something that takes me less than half an hour, and want a baked potato and realize that "Oh crap! It takes an hour to bake it in the oven." That's the one great thing about microwaves. Pop it in and in 6 minutes it's done.

I like the baked potato in 6 minutes. OH MY GOD! That is so cool.
Yes, better in the oven, yes, I love the way the skin gets when it it cooked in the oven... but a baked potato in 6 minutes.
Who can resist?
I do mostly stir fry or slow cookers, but microwaves totally rock.
Of course, it will probably turn out that the hippies were right, and we've all degraded out gene pool or something.

We never had dishwashers in our house. Me or my mom were the dishwashers. We did have a microwave later on, but she still cooked supper from scratch. I do that now. I really don't miss having a microwave, but the next apartment we're moving to is going to have one. So I can appease the others who like it.

So funny and so true! I tell my kids all the time they are spoiled brats! lol!

I tell them-they don't know what it was like-I grew up WITHOUT the microwave and dishwasher?!? What a joke-it had three names, my sister Steph, my sister April, I would take turns doing the dishes! Computers and video games-non-existent. Yes, they are spoiled.

I agree. BTW, try telling anyone in their 20s about how TV used to be. To have under ten channels and you actually had to get UP to change one....
