Taking a Break from the Christmas Decorations ....

Okay.  Consider this post a thank you to those of you who read my blog almost every day and who are getting a bit tired of all the Christmas decorations and fancy dishes due to my new "Linky Party" addiction.  Here is a bit of humor for you from my friend Katie in Vida, Oregon:

Just in case you were not already feeling too old today ...   

Nothing against you youngsters, but this is food for thought:  the people who are starting college this fall were born in 1992.  They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.  Their lifetime has always included AIDS.  The CD was introduced two years before they were born.  They have always had an answering machine.  They have always had cable.  Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.  Popcorn has always been microwaved.  They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.  They don't know who Mork was, or where he was from.  They never heard: 'Where's the Beef?', 'I'd walk a mile for a Camel ' or 'de plane Boss, de plane!' McDonald's never came in styrofoam containers.  They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter (but, hey, the keyboard is still the same!)  God bless you youngsters and God bless you oldsters.  Like me. 

Live, Love and Laugh:  
Life is too short for anything else!!

I DO feel old, but I am glad that I remember "the old days!" LOL!

Hi Gloria,

I remember the old days just fine, but it is the current stuff that slips my mind. That's what my to do list is for, I suppose.

Thanks for the laugh! I know I'm an old bagger and I don't mind it so much. Probably because I feel like a kid half the time, and as long as I don't look in the mirror I can indulge the fantasy. LOL
