I Remember When...........

Ok.....so im showing my age, but i remember when
  • My school got it's first computer and you had to punch out marks on a flow chart to ask it something
  • When our first colour TV was a plastic film stuck on the old "Black & White" screen, blue tint on the top for the sky and green tint on the bottom for the ground and grass etc
  • Right up until 19 when i left the house, Mum would ask "Where are you going?", "What time will you be home?", "Have you got clean undies on?". I swear to God if i got hit by a bus, it would all be fine if i had clean undies on


You may not be as old as me, you may be older, but what do you remember from times gone by?

I remember when.....
  • the baby of my dog was born...
  • the times that i am giving milk for the baby dog...
  • i smile when i've heard the first cry of the baby dog...


Now, when i've heard that news from my Mom that the baby dog died (just now). I've felt that my world crash down and my tears almost fell..

I remember when...

gasoline was like 17 cents/gall and Marlboro's were under 50 cents a pack.
at home we did not need to lock the front door at night.
dad left the keys in the ignition, doors not locked, with no problem.
snow drifts were over my head.
Penny candy was just a penny.
Crew cut hair was "in".
Eisenhower was president.
the cinema had intermission with news reels.
JFK was shot.
The Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show.

I remember . . .

Racing home from school to watch The Partridge Family. (I had a crush on David Cassidy)
45 rpm spindle adapters so I could play 45s on my record player.
Watching the 1st man walk on the moon (I was in class and they brought a TV in.)
Having every single record Elvis ever made and watching every movie.
Hearing President Nixon say "I am not a crook."
Feathered bangs.
Rotary dial telephones that were wired to the wall.

I am in my mid thirties. This was during communist rule in Russia. Everything was very cheap. You could sustain a family of four on one persons salary and have enough to spare for entertainment

I remember when the Romans came marauding across my land conquering all in their path.
























But that was in a past life.


In this life I remember not caring about money. Those were the days

I share all these memories with you, Bompa (except the snow... we lived in the South)

I also remember:

When JFK was shot
When the Russians put Sputnik up
When we moved into our first house that had indoor plumbing
When we were the second family on our block to get a TV set. It was a huge cabinet, with about a 9" diagonal screen in the center.
When we first entered VietNam with "advisors".
When Thailand used to be called "Siam"
When Hawaii and Alaska became states
When Hopalong Cassidy was my hero!
Having the boxing champ Archie Moore on our party line telephone

Computers were years from being invented when I was in school
My first electronic calculator, $200 (added, subtracted, divided and multiplied). Still have it.
17 cent gas and 33 cent Marlboros.
The day JFK died.

Hearing MLK, speak, " Judge others not by the color of their their skin but by the content of their character". When I heard this, I was sure my grandmother and his mother went to the same school or at least knew and taught the same things.

So here I remember all of them, on this Memorial Day weekend.
