JOKE: I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying: Hi, how are you?
I'm not the type to start a conversation in the restroom and I don't know what got into me, but I answered, somewhat embarrassed, Doin' just fine!
And the other person says: So what are you up to?
What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this! is too bizarre so I say: Uhhh, I'm like you, just traveling!





At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question. Can I come over?
Ok, this question is just too weird for me but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation. I tell them, No..I'm a little busy right now!!! Then I hear the person say nervously...
Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions.

Cell phones, don't you just love them.












"; $duration[]=40; $song[]="images/model-t-ford.bmp"; $title[]="DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN...Your grandfather talked about his car?
One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events. The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general. The Grandfather 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: hose, air conditioners, dishwashers, clothes dryers, and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and man hadn't yet walked on the moon.
Your Grandmother 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 lived quite well before computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, 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 Chevy 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 your mother cooked in and 'rock music' was your 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. and how old do you think I am? How old do you think a Grandpa with these experiences would be now???

Would you believe he would only be 59 years old?
