Getting Old

You Know You're Getting Old When ... 

...you find yourself standing next to your car with your keys in your hand, but you can't remember whether you're going somewhere or you just got back.

 ...you walk out to the parking lot of the mall, and not only did you forget where you parked, but you also forgot what car you were driving.

 ...your daughter takes you out to dinner, and the cashier takes one look and gives you both senior discounts.

 ...everything hurts, and what doesn't hurt doesn't work.

 ...you reach down to pull up your wrinkled stockings and realize you don't have any on.

 ...when you raise your arm, and you find your "muscle" is now on the bottom side.

 ...when you have as students the grandchildren of your former students.

 ...when you sit down to the breakfast table, and the snap, crackle, pop you hear isn't your breakfast cereal.

 ...when you bend over to tie your shoes and ask yourself, "Is there anything else I need to do while I'm down here?"

 "Inside every old person is a young one wondering what happened."

What's your been your saying for Getting Old.

Have a laugh as we grown older!


Bring back any memories?
 
Someone asked me the other day, 'What was your favorite 'fast food' when you were growing up?
'We didn't have fast food when I was growing up,' I informed him. 'All the food was slow.'  'C'mon, seriously. Where did you eat? ''It was a place called "home", I explained. 'Mum cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate, I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.
  
By this time, the lad was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I'd figured his system could have handled it:?
  • Some parents NEVER owned their own house, or wore jeans, set foot on a golf course, travelled out of the country or had a credit card.?
  • My parents never drove me to school. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow).?  ? 
  • We didn't have a television in our house until I was 10.?It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at 10 pm, after playing the national anthem and epilogue; it came back on the air at about 6 a.m. and there was usually a locally produced news and farm show on, featuring local people.
  • I never had a telephone in my room. The only phone was on a party line. Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn't know weren't already using the line.
  • Pizzas were not delivered to our home... But milk was.
  • All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers -- My brother delivered a newspaper, seven days a week.  He had to get up at 6AM every morning.
  • Film stars kissed with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the films. There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or almost anything offensive.
If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may want to share some of these memories with your children or grandchildren. Just don't blame me if they bust a gut laughing. ?
  
Growing up isn't what it used to be, is it?
 
MEMORIES from a friend:  My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have steam irons. Man, I am old.? ? 
 
How many do you remember? Headlight dip-switches on the floor of the car.  Ignition switches on the dashboard. Trouser leg clips for bicycles without chain guards. Soldering irons you heated on a gas burner. And curling irons that burnt your hair or your skin. Using hand signals for cars without turn indicators.
 
Older Than Dirt Quiz: Count all the ones that you remember, not the ones you were told about.? Ratings at the bottom.?
  1. Sweet cigarettes?
  2. Coffee shops with juke boxes ?
  3. Home milk delivery in glass bottles ?
  4. Party lineson the telephone? 
  5. Newsreels before the movie
  6. TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning. (There were only 2 channels [if you were fortunate])?
  7. Peashooters  ?
  8. 33 rpm records?
  9. 45 RPM records
  10. Hi-fi's? 
  11. Metal ice trays with levers? 
  12. Blue flashbulb
  13. Cork popguns ?
  14. Wash tub wringers
 
If you remembered 0-3 = You’re still young? 
If you remembered 3-6 = You are getting older? 
If you remembered 7-10 = Don't tell your age? 
If you remembered 11-14 = You're positively ancient!
 
I must be 'positively ancient' but those memories are some of the best parts of my life.
