How old is Grandma ? and Did you know ?

Hi There,

How old is Grandma ??

Stay with this -- the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.
One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events.
The grandson asked his grandmother what she
thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general..

The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:
' television
' penicillin
' polio shots
' frozen foods
' Xerox
' contact lenses
' Frisbees and
' the pill
There were no:
' credit cards
' laser beams or
' ball-point pens
Man had not
invented:
' pantyhose
' air conditioners
' dishwashers
' clothes dryers
' and the clotheswere hung out to dryin the fresh air and
' man hadn't yetwalked on the moon

Your Grandfather and I got married first, .. and then lived together..
Every family had a father and a mother.
Until I was 25, I called every man
older than me, "Sir".
And after I turned 25, I still called
policemen and every man with a title, "Sir."
We were before gay-rights,
computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centres, and group therapy.
Our lives were governed by the Ten
Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.
We were taught to know the
difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living
in this country was a bigger privilege...
We thought fast food was what people
ate during Lent.
Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.
Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.
Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.
We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny,and the President's speeches on our radios.
And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.
If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan'on it, it was junk
The term 'making out' referred to how
you did on your school exam....
Pizza Hut, McDonald's,
and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had 5 &10-cent stores where you
could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar,
and a Pepsi were all a nickel.
And if you didn't want to splurge, you could
spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, . .. .
but who could afford one?
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day:
' "grass" was mowed,
' "coke" was a cold drink,
' "pot" was something yourmother cooked in and
' "rock music" wasyour grandmother's lullaby.
' "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,
' "chip" meant a piece of wood,
' "hardware" was found in a hardware store and
' "software" wasn't even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.
No wonder people call us "old and
confused" and say there is a generation gap.or from the archives
How old do you think I am?
I bet you have this old lady
in mind....you are in for a shock!
Read on to see -- pretty scary if
you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.

OK so what age is the Grandma?
She would be only 59 years old !
It gives you something to think about ...
Pass it on to the old ones - the young ones wouldn't believe it.

Did you know ......
In Alaska It is illegal for a moose to walk on the sidewalk downtown In Arizona Hunting camels is prohibited. In Arkansas It is illegal to mispronounce Arkansas while there.
In California Community leaders passed an ordinance that makes it illegal for anyone to try and stop a child from playfully jumping over puddles of water.
