I confused

I'm confused ... how come George got 21 right answers?

Oh, that's right. He's old, so he probably answered some of them twice.:) :) :)

Ol' George's doing better than I am!

I forget whether I answered them or not. And if I remember that I did answer them, I forget what answer I gave.

I remember!

Charles, you got one more right than I did. Or maybe it was one less. :wink What I can't remember is does that make you the more geezerly?

Now, don't get your bowser in an uproar - I'm only speaking in terms of this test.

:kiss

And

And, I still don't think it's kosher that George scored 21 on a 20 point test!

I don't care if he's old! It's not fair!

George, world's ALLEGED oldest living Casita owner,

Don't feel bad, I made a mistake once. I thought I was wrong and wasn't. :o

Extra credit

>>the correct score is 22

George, as you know, my wife is a teacher. She tells me she occasionally gives extra credit to "those who deserve it," making it possible to score 110 on a 100 point test.

My question is this ... don't go trying to pull this when my wife and I come to Durango this summer, ok?

Not that I'm the jealous type, mind you.

ah Growing Up

Hi....thought you would enjoy these memories...I did.

" Subject: Growing Up
My problem is I remember damned near all of this. Really I remember all of it but some of it just didn't exist where I grew up......... Growing up in the 40's and 50's Of course, I cannot relate to most of this, but thought some of you could.

"Hey Dad," My Daughter asked the other day, "what was your
favorite fast food when you were growing up?"

"We didn't have fast food when I was growing up."

"C'mon, seriously. Where did you eat?"

"We ate at home," I explained.

"My Mom cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we all sat down together at the table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate I had to sit there until I did like it."

By this time, my Daughter was laughing so hard I was afraid she
was going to suffer some serious internal damage, so I didn't tell her the part about how I had to get my Father's permission to leave the table.

Here are some other things I would have told her about my childhood if I had figured her system could handle it. My parents never: wore Levi's, set foot on a golf course, traveled out of the country, flew in a plane or had a credit card.

In their later years they had something called a "revolving charge
card" but they never actually used it. It was only good at Sears-Roebuck. Or maybe it was Sears and Roebuck. Either way, there is no Roebuck anymore.

My parents never drove me to soccer practice. This was because
soccer back then was just for the girls.

We actually did walk to school. By the time you were in the 6th
grade it was not cool to ride the bus unless you lived more than 4 or 5 miles from the school, even when it was raining or there was ice or snow on the ground.

Outdoor sports consisted of stickball, snowball fights, building forts, making snowmen and sliding down hills on a piece of cardboard. No skate boards, roller blades or trail bikes.

We didn't have a television in our house until I was 12. It was, of
course, black and white, but you could buy a piece of special
colored plastic to cover the screen. The top third was blue, like the sky, and the bottom third was green, like grass. The middle third was red. It was perfect for programs that had scenes of fire trucks riding across someone's lawn on a sunny day.

I was 13 before I tasted my first pizza. It was a Sam's Pizza at
the East end of Fruit Street in Milford. My friend, Steve took me there to try what he called "pizza pie." When I bit into it, I burned the roof of my mouth and the cheese slid off, swung down and plastered itself against my chin. It's still the best pizza I ever had.

Pizzas were not delivered to your house back then, but the milk
was. I looked forward to winter because the cream in the milk was on top of the bottle and it would freeze and push the cap off. Of course us kids would get up first to get the milk and eat the frozen cream before our mother could catch us.

I never had a telephone in my room. Actually the only phone in the
house was in the hallway and it was on a party line. Before you could
make a call, you had to listen in to make sure someone else wasn't already using the line.If the line was not in use an Operator would come on and ask "number please" and you would give her the number you wanted to call.

There was no such thing as a computer or a hand held calculator.
We were required to memorize the "times tables." Believe it or not, we were tested each week on our ability to perform mathematics with nothing but a pencil and paper. We took a spelling test every day. There was no such thing as a "social promotion." If you flunked a class, you repeated that grade the following year. Nobody was concerned about your "self esteem."

We had to actually do something praiseworthy before we were praised. We learned that you had to earn respect.

All newspapers were delivered by boys and most all boys delivered
newspapers. I delivered the "Milford Daily News" six days a week.
It cost 7 cents a paper, of which I got to keep 2 cents. On Saturday, I had to collect the 42 cents from my customers. My favorite customers were the ones who gave me 50 cents and told me to keep the change. My least favorite customers were the ones who seemed to never be home on collection day.

Movie stars kissed with their mouths shut on screen. Touching
someone else's tongue with yours was called French kissing and they just didn't do that in the movies back then. I had no idea what they did in French movies. French movies were considered dirty and we weren't allowed to see them.

You never saw the Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers or anyone else actually
kill someone. The heroes back then would just shoot the gun out of the bad guy's hand. There was no blood and violence.

When you were sick, the Doctor actually came to your house. No, I
am not making this up.

Drugs were something you purchased at a pharmacy in order to cure an illness.

If we dared to "sass" our parents, or any other grown-up, we
immediately found out what soap tasted like. For more serious infractions, we learned about something called a "this hurts me more than it hurts you." I never did quite understand that one.

In those days, parents were expected to discipline their kids.
There was no interference from the government. "Social Services" or "Family Services" had not been invented (The ninth and tenth amendments to the constitution were still observed in those days.)

I must be getting old because I find myself reflecting back more
and more and thinking I liked it a lot better back then.

If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may
want to share some of these memories with your kids or grandchildren. Just don't blame me if they wet themselves laughing. Growing up today sure ain't what it used to be like in my day.

Enjoy the memories !!!!!!

I got 19 , never had to draw a line up my legs so missed that one. But I agree with Mary, I remember the aluminum top on the coke bottle for sprinkling clothes, in fact I think my mother still has hers. I guess everyone remembers "Grapette" . First car I really really wanted was a Studebaker Golden Hawk, I still want one come to think of it. I expect with all the bad things we ate and the bad way we were diciplined and taught as kids none of us will live to be 50, and we will all be social deviants to boot.
