Remember 1955?

Hi, Friends,
An example of "Shock & Awe."  A look back in time to my "good ole days' that I remember so fondly.  I was a teenager in 1955, looking forward to graduation from high school in 1956; and on to college.  Read on, friend, and enjoy the memories and laugh with those that will read this in disbelief.



If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, 
nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store

When I first started driving, who
would have thought gas would someday
 cost 25 cents a gallon.

Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.

I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies
any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with
saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems 
every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it.

I read the other day where some

scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by

the end of the century. 
They even have some fellows they
call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas .

Did you see where some baseball player

just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball?
 It wouldn't 
surprise me if someday they'll be 
making more than the President.

I never thought I'd see the day all our
kitchen appliances would be electric. 
They're even making electric 
typewriters now.

It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. 
I see where a few married women 
are having to work to make ends meet.

It won't be long before young couples are going
to have to hire someone to watch their kids 
so they can both work.

I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to
open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.

Thank goodness I won't live to see the day
when the Government takes half our income in taxes. 
I sometimes

wonder if we are electing the best people to government.

The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal,
but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

There is no sense going on short
trips anymore for a weekend.
It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

No one can afford to be sick anymore.

At $15.00 a day in the hospital, 
it's too rich for my blood.

If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut,
Forget it.

Know any friends who would get a

kick out of these ? Pass this on !

Be sure and send it to your 
kids and grand kids, too !

LOL, TEE HEE, HAHA,  I hope that brought back good memories
to you who are "mature" enough to remember!  Maybe my
kids will now believe we didn't travel around in covered
wagons back then.  That's the honest truth....they believed we
were from another time entirely.

That's it for today.....keep on PASSING IT FORWARD!
