After 1990

If you were born after 1990, you probably won't know a thing about these things, unless of course you read alot, LOL
The automat
Black & White Movies
Blue Laws
Carbon Paper
The Draft- not the footbal or baseball kind!
House Calls- not the tv program
Leisure suits
Paper Dolls
The smell of Burning Leaves
An Unanswered phone

Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,A medley of extemporanea; And love is a thing that can never go wrong; And I am Marie of Romania.
Dorothy Parker (1893 - 1967), Not So Deep as a Well (1937), "Comment"

I remember these about washers that you had to feed the clothing between the ringers to remove the excess water.Imagine a time time when folks did not have indoor plumbing and now there are multiple luxurious baths in homes. Read yesterday that the avarage age of the boomers is now 52.

I got my arm stuck in one of those wringers! luckily my older brother reversed the way it went and got me out!
We were chatting about outdoor plumbing the morning! the kids found it dascinating!-not me!
