Getting Old According To My Younger Self!

November 17, 2016 6:00pm CST
Well here I am thinking about what I said when I was 18. That was a long time ago now as I'm preparing to celebrate 53 years of life on Friday. When I was 18 that was old. It was old even when I was 28, but now it seems like it isn't so bad. I've seen some exciting events over those years such as: 1. The Cost of a house in the 1960's was less than the cost of a car today. 2. The Average income for a year then is almost identical to the average made for a month now. 3. A gallon of Gas went from about $.15 to a high of $5.00 and settled in at just over $2.00 today. 4. The birth of Color TV, Cable TV, The internet and Cell Phones. 5. Records, 8 Tracks, Tapes, CD's, DVD's And then Blue Ray etc.... 6. Man on the moon to Shuttle Crafts and Space Stations. 7. The American Motors vehicles that could get 50 miles to the gallon being pushed out of the market and then the demand for fuel efficient cars. 8. AM Radio To Shortwave Radio and then to Cell Phones. 9. Fancy calculators (the first computers), Mainframes to computers where you can store several dozen libraries of information in a small micro chip. 10. Several Wars, Terrorism, and the move to Political Correctness. Can you think of anything else that has happened in the last 53 years?

@Berniezeitler I'm 54, so thanks for taking me back to memory lane---for me, memories are hard to come by---it's tough to remember things

There has been a vast evolution in the technology in the global scenario. So many new things are being updated daily. The cost and standard of living have been improved but there is no peace and harmony among the people.

The list is almost endless isn't it. Here in NZ shops used to be closed at the weekend, but in many places are now open 7 days. Cafes and restaurants never used to be open on Sundays. In fact cafes as we know them now didn't exist here twenty or more years ago.

Happy belated birthday to you @Berniezeitler ! For me personally, I jumped from my own childhood school years to now having my own family . . . it has been a long journey and I can't believe I'm "here" now!

Yes a lot has happened since you were born and most of it good and some bad things. We all have a lot of good things to be thankful for living in America.
