Default Born 1930-1979

Those of You Born
1930 - 1979
. 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-base paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles,
Locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode
Our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our
heads.

As infants & children,
We would ride in cars with no car seats,
No booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald
tires and sometimes no brakes.

Riding in the back of a pick-up truck 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, real butter and bacon.
We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar.
And, we weren't overweight.
WHY?

Because we were
Always outside playing...that's why!

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 them 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, Nintendo's and X-boxes.
There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable,
No video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's,
No cell phones, No personal computers, no Internet and
no 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 innovation 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 ?

Thanks. I of course am not the author.
It's just that so much of this hit home with me and I thought I'd pass it on.
Montreal for me, and not that early but no matter.

There ought to have been something mentioned about how a grown up could smile or wink at a child and no harmful motive was suspected.

A simpler and in some ways happier time.

Thanks again for your reply.

Big Grin Re: Born 1930-1979

yes i believe that. even though i wasn't around in the 1950's. i remember reading in "Marlon Brando's Autobiography that he wrote in i think the late 90's? i believe. that in the early 50's before "The Wild One" came out. he would park his motorcyle outside an apartment in New York City & not have to worry about it getting stolen. he said that after 'The wild one' came out

that for for a little B film like that. that nobody thought would really do anything or have such an impact. it had SUCH a big impact that after that came out we got the harley's angel's later on. i think because of that film. & after that film came out ThAN you had to start watching where you parked your hog. or something along the lines he said that.

Ah I see, well she is right, but of course women usually are and everyone knows they are so much more wiser and intelligent than men. They also dont need viagra or cialis to "love and to live",,,,,, like men do, n'est pas?
