Those Born 1930-1979

READ TO THE BOTTOM FOR QUOTE OF THE MONTH BY JAY LENO. IF YOU DON'T READ ANYTHING ELSE---VERY WELL STATED




TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!




First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they
were pregnant.




They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get
tested for diabetes.




Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs
covered with bright colored lead-based paints.




We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to
mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.




As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster
seats, seat belts or air bags.




Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.




We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.




We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and
NO ONE actually died from
this.




We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank Kool-aid made with
sugar, but we weren't overweight because,

WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!




We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back
when the streetlights came on.




No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.




We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the
hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a
few times, we learned to solve the problem.




We did not have Playstations, Nitendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150
channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell
phones, no personal computer! s, no Internet or chat rooms.......

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!




We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits
from these accidents.




We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us
forever.




We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and
tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out
very many eyes.




We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the
bell, or just walked in and talked to them!




Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had
to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!




The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They
actually sided with the law!




These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers
and inventors ever!




The past 50 years have been an explosion of inovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL
WITH IT ALL!




If YOU are one of them...CONGRATULATIONS!




You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as
kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.

While you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave (and
lucky) their parents were.




Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!




The quote of the month is by Jay Leno:

"With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding,
severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with
the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time
to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?"




For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us...go ahead and
delete this. For the rest of us...pass this on.
