Remember when the doctor used to be the family friend, and you didn't need insurance or a lawyer to defend? The way that he took care of you or what he had to do, because he took an oath and strived to do the best for you. And, made house calls!
Remember when going to the store and shopping casually....and when you went to pay for your purchase, you used your own money? Nothing that you had to swipe or punch in some amount....
Remember when the cashier person had to really count?
Remember when you saw the milkman going from door to door?
Remember when there was a time when just one glance was all that it would take and you would know the kind of car, model and make by it's unique style. They were streamlined, white walls, fins and really had some style. Now they all look the same.
Remember when the music you played was from a vinyl, big-holed record called a forty-five? The record player had a post to keep them all in line and then the records would drop down and play one at a time.
Remember when life seemed so much easier and slower in some ways? Don't get me wrong, I personally love the new technology but I sure miss some of those days. So, time moves on and so do we, and nothing stays the same. But I sure love to reminisce and walk down memory lane now and then.
Oh sure, we had our problems then, just like we do today and as always we were striving and trying for a better way. Oh, the simple life we lived still seems like so much fun. How can you explain a game, just kick the can and run?
Or playing Jacks!
