    Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things..
    The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1987.

    They are too young to remember the first space shuttle blowing up on liftoff.


    Their lifetime has always included AIDS.


    Bot! tle caps have always been screw off and plastic.


    The CD was introduced the year they were born.


    They have always had an answering machine.


    They have always had cable.


    They cannot fathom not having a remote control.


    Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.


    Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.


    They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.


    They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.


    Do you feel old yet? Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list. Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading...

    like, "What was it like back then?" I tell them we could buy a candy bar for a nickel, the public pool cost 25 cents, and that we rarely locked our houses. They think it sounds neat in those respects....but they wouldn't want to give up their computer games, etc.

    When I was born the computer didn't exist. (Ball-point pens were not in use.)

    When my father was born this country had no paved roads.

    When my grandfather was born Lincoln was President.

    When my grandfather's grandfather was alive, Washington was President.

    I remember when these were new: the long-playing record; Rudoloph the Red-Nosed Raindeer; automatic transmissions; silly putty; Elvis; President Truman; I Love Lucy; TV Guide; the A-bomb.









    I am 65.
