I am old enough to remember when people sat in front of a big radio in the living room and watched it. The thing I remember the most is children playing in the street (I grew up in NY) or their yards without fear. With all the technology there are things that are not replaceable from the "GOOD OLD DAYS".

Slap bracelets

Lucky rabit's foot keychains when they were really poor bunny feet.

"You Can't Do that On Television" and "Turkey TV" and "Pinwheel" and "Today's Special"-all of which I think was on nickelodeon.

I.O.U. Sweatshirts and when fanny packs were acceptable fashion gear.

Those shirts that changed color-especially on the armpits on hot days.

When cigs were a DOLLAR and some change

When it was okay for an eight year old, a six year old, and a four year old to walk to the corner store without adult supervision.

Matters and treating everyone with respect.

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

1 TV in the house, no remote, the TV had a big dial that clicked when you turned it. And it had fake wood paneling on it.

- 4 Television Stations (ABC, NBC,CBS, and PBS)
- only 1 phone in the house - and no - it was not a cell phone - but the old rotary phones,
- Pre-PC era (the first time I heard about a friend of mine getting a computer during his senior year of high school, I envisioned a large room like NASA Control
- We didn't have a house with air conditioning until I was 11 (and we lived in the Deep South)
- We didn't have a car with air until I was 14.
- The nearest McDonald's was 10 miles away - and we lived in the subburbs of a major city
- Once school was out for the summer we didn't see most of our friends (much less talk to them on the phone - no cell - no texting) until the next school year started.
- I was a freshman in college when the college had 2 NEW (and the only ones) computers on campus - no hard drive and we used 5 1/4 Floppies
- I remember when my cousin got Pong for Christmas - we played and watched that dot all day and night long.
- Star Trek - before reruns.
And the funny thing is I'm only 47 years old - not like I am 70.
