Thanks for sharing this. It's really relaxing and interesting to me to think about what those who came before us had or didn't have in comparison to
what I was born and raised with as a child of 91.
My great grandmother was born in 1908 and died in the early 2000's. I also thought of how amazing her life must have been. How spectacular and
interesting it must have been to be her. To see all the political changes, geographical changes, wars, depression, the bounce back, and even the start
of the recession. All the presidents she lived through, to see telephones, pagers, computers, gaming consoles, flat screen TV's, cell phones, and even
the start of the smart phone era.... glass-top stoves, INDOOR PLUMBING!! I think the outhouse is actually still standing on her property that our
family still owns.
It's just amazing how quickly things can and do change.
You've already seen quite a few yourself. I just wonder what kind of things I'll see.....
I was just telling my sons father, you know his children, our grandchildren, will joke about us, "our grandparents who lived through the stone age of
the VHS and DVD player. Our grandparents who actually paid for Cable, can you believe that?! They had a thing called Dial-Up even! Grandma said she
had to plug her headphones in with A WIRE!"
I knew things were changing for us too when the first car I bought, didn't have a CD player, just a radio, and a AUX jack.
I'm only 26 and I already feel outdated by new tech.
