Happy Friday! It must be spring – baseball is underway and I have cut the grass. The days are longer and I am enjoying it! Even when things are going well, we are tempted to look back at times when things were simpler and, at least in our eyes, not quite as easy as they are today. Enjoy!
Back in my day, tweeting was for the birds.
Back in my day, we did not have cell phone we had two tin cans and some string.
Back in my day, we had to get up in order to change the channel on the television.
Back in my day, songs had lyrics that did not have to be bleeped out.
Back in my day, we had pet rocks.
Back in my day, Mom did not text you when dinner was ready, she would just stand on the front porch and scream for you to come home.
Back in my day, we did not have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the library and look it up in a book.
Back in my day, we had one phone in the house. It was black, attached to the wall and had a dial you had to spin.
Back in my day, you had to actually pay to make a long-distance telephone call.
Back in my day, we did not have email. We had to actually write somebody a letter, with a pen and paper. Then you had to put it in the mailbox and wait a week to ten days for a response.
Back in my day, we had tablets, they were made of stone and had commandments written on them.
Thought for the Week
