I was born in the 50s and a child of the 60s. Things were quite different then. Simpler times for sure. I have a lot of fond memories of my childhood and although I truly love many of the modern conveniences that we have in 2011, it is still fun to look back at the things and adventures that were very much a part of my life.
Whether you were born in the 30s or the 80s, there are memories you associate with things and experiences that no longer exist due to our ever evolving society. Let’s share some of those with each other ( the good and the bad) and take a stroll down memory lane. I will start.
I remember when we had party telephone lines. Some of the old biddies, er I mean women, on our line would love to listen to my older brothers talk to their girlfriends and then tell my mom what was being said . Sometimes, not often, I would catch my mom listening in on others. She would always pretend she was just picking up the phone to make a call…but we knew better.
