All  the girls had ugly gym slips

It  took five minutes for the TV to warm  up

Nearly  everyone’s Mum was home when the kids got home  from school 

 Nobody owned a purebred dog

You’d  reach into a muddy gutter for a  penny




Your  Mother wore nylons that came in two  pieces 

All  male teachers wore ties and female teachers had  their hair done every day and wore high  heels

All  male teachers

You  got your windscreen cleaned, oil checked and  petrol served, without asking, all for free,  every time..

It  was considered a great privilege to be taken out  to dinner at a real  restaurant
With  your parents

They  threatened to keep children back a year if they  failed the school year. . .   And
They  did!

When  a Ford Zephyr was everyone’s dream  car…
And  people went steady

No  one ever asked where the car keys were because  they were always in the  car,
In  the ignition, and the doors were never  locked

Spinning  around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause  for giggles?

Playing  cricket with no adults to help the children with  the rules of the game

Bottles  came from the corner shop without safety caps  and hermetic  seals
Because  no one had yet tried to poison a perfect  stranger

And  with all our progress, don’t you wish, just  once, you could slip back in  time
And  savour the slower pace, and share it with the  children of  today?

When  being sent to the headmasters office was nothing  compared to the fate that awaited you at  home

Two Interesting Years – Down memory Lane 2

Basically  we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn’t  because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs  etc.Our  parents and grandparents were a  much bigger threat! But  we survived because their love was greater than  the threat.
As  well as summers filled with bike rides, cricket,  Hula  Hoops, skating and  visits
To  the pool, eating lemonade powder or liquorice  sticks.

 Didn’t  that feel good, just to go back and say, ‘Yes, I  remember that’? 

I  am sharing this with you today because it ended  with a Double Dare to pass it on.  To  remember what a Double Dare is, read on, and  remember that the perfect age is somewhere  between old enough to know better and too young  to care.

Send  this on to someone who can  still remember  the Lone Ranger and Sgt Bilko
