    Kool-Aid was the drink of choice.

    Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.

    Class field trips.

    When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.

    When $5 seemed like a million, & another dollar a miracle.

    When you begged to go to McDonalds for dinner everyday.

    When Toys R Us overuled the mall.

    Go back to the time when:

    Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'.

    Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming 'do over!'

    'Race issue' ment arguing about who ran the fastest.

    Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in 'Monopoly.'

    It wasn't odd to have two or three 'best' friends.

    Being old referred to anyone over 20.

    A chance to skate as a couple at the local roller rink was like winning the lottery.

    Scrapes & bruises were kissed & made better.

    It was a big deal to finally be tall enought to ride the 'big people' rides at the fair.

    When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.

    When Ninja Turtles ruled the world.

    Another Baby Sitter Club and Little Sister (Karen) book came out and you put your name on hold for it at the library.

    When Aladdin was new, before the trilogy was complete.

    Before we realized all this would eventually disappear

    Who would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!!!!

                            And for the older folks.......


                            Dedicated to

                            Those Born 1930-1979!

                            TO ALL THE
                            WHO SURVIVED the
                            1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's !!

                            First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.
                            They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

                            Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

                            We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

                            As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.

                            We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.

                            We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank koolade made with sugar, but we weren't overweight because .

                            WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!

                            We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

                            No one was able to reach us all day.

                            And we were O.K.

                            We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down
                            the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

                            We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable, no video
                            movies or DVD's, no surround-sound, CD's or Ipods, no cell
                            phones!, no personal computers , no Internet or chat rooms.......
                            WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside
                            and found them!

                            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 were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays,
                            made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.
                            We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang
                            the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!

                            Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

                            The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.

                            They actually sided with the law!

                            These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

                            The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

                            We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned

                            HOW TO
                            DEAL WITH IT

                            If YOU are one of them . . CONGRATULATIONS!

                            You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as
                            kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives

                            for our own good

                            And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave (and
                            lucky) their parents were.

                            Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!

                              I am a bit shocked. Unless I skipped over it, you forgot to mention the greatest generation in world history... Or boys and girls who fought and won the second world war. Talk about men of steel.
