    Got this from another site i belong to but thought it was good so i wanted to share.
    Stay with this -- the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.


    One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events.
    The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, andjust things in general..


    The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:
    ' television

    ' penicillin
    ' polio shots
    ' frozen foods
    ' Xerox
    ' contact lenses
    ' Frisbee s and
    ' the pill
    There were no:
    ' credit cards
    ' laser beams or
    ' ball-point pens
    Man had not invented:
    ' pantyhose
    ' air conditioners
    ' dishwashers
    ' clothes dryers

    ' and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
    ' man hadn't yet walked on the moon

    Your Grandfather and I got married first, .. .... ... and then lived together..
    Every family had a father and a mother.
    Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, "Sir".
    And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, "Sir."
    We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.
    Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.
    We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
    Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege...
    We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.
    Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.
    Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.
    Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasingcondominiums.

    We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CD's, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.
    We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our radios.
    And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey or Buddy Holley.
    If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan' on it, it was junk
    The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam....
    Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.
    We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
    Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, Coke and Pepsi were all a nickel.
    And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
    You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, . .. . but who could afford one?
    Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
    In my day:
    ' "grass" was mowed,
    ' "coke" was a cold drink,
    ' "pot" was something your mother cooked in and
    ' "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.
    ' "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,
    ' "chip" meant a piece of wood,
    ' "hardware" was found in a hardware store and
    ' "software" wasn't even a word.

    And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.
    No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.

    Those were the days, my friend!
    How old do you think I am?
    I bet you have this old lady in mind....you are in for a shock!
    Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.
    Are you ready ?????











    This woman would be only 59 years old.

    GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.......

    PASS THIS ON TO THE OLD ONES,

    THE YOUNG ONES WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

    We are told that we shouldn't judge all Muslims by the actions of an extreme few. Why can't we offer millions of law-abiding American gun owners the same consideration?

    DucknFish, "The first quick-frozen vegetables, fruits, seafoods, and meat were sold to the public for the first time in 1930 in Springfield, Massachusetts, under the tradename Birds Eye Frosted Foods®". That alone would put this woman in her early 80s if the story was told today.

    But it sure did make me think, being 62 myself.

      Wow I just turned 51 and remember almost every bit of that, except gas being .11 cent. Didn't pay mind to gas prices that many years back but know when I was 10 my dad sent me to gas station with a dollar to fill the gas can for lawn mower, and I would fill it up buy a candy bar and a coke and still bring home change.
