ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events.

The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, terrorism attacks, and today's rock music.

Granddad replied, "Well, let me think a minute...I was born, before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill.

There was no radar, credit cards, laser beams or ball-point pens.

Man had not invented 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 grandmother and I got married first-and then we lived together.

Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than I 'Sir'-and after I turned 25; I still called policemen and every man with a title, 'Sir.' Sundays were set-aside for the family, Church, helping those in need, and visiting with family or neighbors.

We were before gay-rights, abortion, computer dating, Microsoft, The Internet, Ebay, and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by our own 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.

A draft dodger was a person who Closed the doors when the evening breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to the Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our radios, if you saw anything with 'Made in Japan' on it, it was junk.

Pizza Hut, McDonald's, instant coffee, and bottled water, 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, ride on a streetcar, and a 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 Chevy 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 out dated, they say we are confused" that we are apart of the generation gap.

Maybe there right, after all, I am 59 years old.
