Welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday hosted by Coloradolady. Stop by Coloradolady's blog today for more great vintage thingies.
I got these one day from a friend and thought you younger folk would have fun with these---you see I am VINTAGE---and this is just the way it was when I was growing up.
The more I see the changes in our world with everything related to God and christian values being eliminated and said to be hate crime, living a decent, moral life and our rights gradually being taken away from us ---the more I realize those really were The Good Ole Days.
You may find some of these interesting, so here we go:
As infants & children and even adults, we rode in cars with no seat belts (maybe not even a seat), no booster seats, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes.
We drank water from a garden hose or from a dipper( for well water ), and not from a bottle.
We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon.
We drank Kool-Aid made with real sugar, and we were not over weight---because we were always outside playing.
We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms (or Blogs).
WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them and enjoyed playing together and often making up our games.
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents!
We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house,giving no thought to a kidnapping or drive by shooting then---it was safe.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all and we did not need to be entertained all day---we made our own entertainment---we had some imagination and creativity about us and more importantly we survived !!!
So I hope you enjoyed a look at days past ---I look back and I really am glad I grew up that way---much better than this generation has it. I will try to come up with some other things we did at a later date---you know it takes a while to think and remember these things---especially when you are Vintage. Ha!
