Did You Know?
To Those of Us Born 1925-1970
- We survived – being born to a mother who smoked and drank during pregnancy and took aspirin,
- medicine bottles with no childproof lids, locks on doors or cabinets,
- riding our bikes without a helmet,
- riding in cars with no car seats, seat belts or air bags,
- drinking water from a garden hose on a hot day, and sharing a pop with 4 friends from a bottle,
- eating cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon,
- drinking Kool-Aid made with real white sugar … and we weren’t overweight!
- Because we were always outside playing – until the streetlights came on,
- We had no Play Stations, Nintendos and X-Boxes, no video games, no 150 TV channel’s, no DVD’s, CD’s, cell phones, P.C.’s, no internet and chat room.
- We had FRIENDS!
- We fell out of trees, broke bones and no one sued anyone because of it.
- We ate worms, mud pies, and dirt.
- We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house, and if we got into trouble with the law, our parents actually sided with the police!
These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever! We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.
If YOU are 1 of those born between 1925 and 1970 … CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with your kids and grandkids so they will know how brave and lucky their parents and grandparents [and GREATgrandparents] were. Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it?
An old man said: “Erasers are for those who make mistakes.”
A youth replied: “Erasers are made for those who are willing to correct their mistakes!”

A nickel goes a long way now.
You can carry it around for days without finding a thing it will buy.
