I remember playing outside and never worrying about getting kidnapped....or when the only way to talk to someone was calling them at home...no cell phones

...when gas was .35 cents a litre

...the ice cream man came down the street with a white cart

..going to school and the only fights we had were about trading bazooka stickers and smurf stickers....and to resolve it we would just not talk to each other at recess...no guns, knifes or shootings....

Learning to type on a manual typewriter. Calling my boss "Sir"

Wow, My mom is 88..She still recalls being in a hospital with scarlet fever. Mom also remembers nurses threatening kids, if they cried. (how harsh was that?)

Sunday school being closed because of the polio epidemic

Having a fortnight off school (quarantined) because my sister had scarlet fever.

Getting the cane for being late for school

I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

When kids played outside from morning to night and no one came out to check on you because your mom knew you were just out with your friends and you'd be ok. And when that all started to change with cable and the Atari 2600 (lol!)
