You May Be Older... If You Remember These!

  1. It took for ever for the TV to warm up.
  2. Nearly everyone's Mum was at home when the kids got home from school.
  3. Nobody owned a thoroughbred dog.
  4. You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.
  5. All your male teachers wore ties and female teachers had their hair done every day and wore high heels.
  6. You got your windscreen cleaned, oil checked, and petrol served, without asking, all for free, every time.
  7. It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents.
  8. They threatened to keep children back a year if they failed. . . And they did it!
  9. When a Ford Zephyr was everyone's dream car...And people went steady.
  10. No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked.
  11. Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles?
  12. Bottles came from the corner shop without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger..
  13. And with all our progress, don't you wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savour the slower pace, and share it with the children of today.
  14. When being sent to the head's study was nothing compared to the fate that awaited the student at home.
  15. Basically, we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat.
  16. As well as summers filled with bike rides, cricket, Hula Hoops, skate hockey and visits to the pool, and eating lemonade powder or liquorice sticks.


Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say: 'Yes, I remember that'?
