Remember the good old days?
The days before television, before penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, xerox, contact lenses, video tapes and the pill. We were before radar, credit cards, split ATMs, laser beams and ballpoint pens, before dishwashers, tumble driers, electric blankets, air conditioners, drip-dry clothes... and before man walked on the moon!
We got married first and then lived together (how quaint can you be?). We thought fast food was what you ate in Lent, a BIG MAC was an oversized raincoat and "crumpet" we had for tea. We existed before house husbands, computer dating and "sheltered accommodation" was where you waited for a bus!
We were before day care centres, group homes and disposable nappies. We never heard of FM radio, tape decks, artificial hearts, word processors or young men wearing ear rings. For us "time sharing" meant togetherness, a "chip" was a piece of wood or a fried potato, "hardware" mean't nuts and bolts and "software" wasn't even a word!
Before 1950 "made in japan" meant junk!, the term "making out" refered to how you did in your exams, "stud" was something that fastened a collar to a shirt and "going all the way" meant staying on a double-decker bus till the terminus.
In our day, cigarette smoking was "fashionable", "grass" was mown, "coke" was kept in a coalhouse, a "joint" was a piece of meat you ate with your family on sundays and "pot" was something you cooked in. "Rock music" was a fond mother's lullaby. "Eldorado" was an ice-cream, a "gay person" was the life and soul of the party, while "aids" just meant beauty treatments or help for someone in trouble!
Those who were born before 1950 must be a hardy bunch when you think about how the world has changed and the adjustments you've had to make.
It's time to take the good old things back and TRAVEL !!!
