Neck lumps on old men. You don't see them any more. Or many men who've lost fingers in work accidents.
And people don't whistle nowadays, I always used to hear someone whistling as they walked down the street.

Plastic bubbles.
I used to chew that toxic crap like gum.
It tasted like burning.

Oddly there is still one doing the rounds by the Ex's place.

Infrequent I grant you.

We here in the deep south used to have thousands of different species of ants. Since the fire ant invasion of the early '70's, they've decimated the other ants. But, the fire ants have reduced the number of termites, also. I just wish the fire ants weren't so discriminating in getting the old pests that still eat up my garden.

Deer, coyotes and turkey are another group of pests that weren't around in the '60's like they are today. In the '60's a hunter could go deer hunting all season and not even see a deer, now I've got them in my garden. Turkeys, too. Coyotes aren't as bad as they used to be about 6 or 8 years ago, but they still serenade us to sleep about twice a week.

Oh, did I mention armadillos? Some scientist should grow one to the size of an 18 wheeler and use it for tunnel boring. My God, those things can ruin a yard.



Those are just a few of the things I can think of off the top of my head...


Definitely, see more diverse animals here in the suburbs 15 minutes from downtown Atlanta than we did in the '70s. We have had deer, coyotes, foxes, raccoons, snakes, frogs, owls, hawks, bats and a load of chipmunks, squirrels along with numerous other birds. I can sit on the porch late night and early morning and they trot up and down the road. When I lived south of Atlanta we had an occasional armadillo took forever to run it off finally read that bobcat urine would work and sure enough, it does, but you better pet them first LOL. works wonders if you get rodents in your basement or attic too.
