The last generation

backyard

Anyone who was BORN in the 50’s – 60’s-70’s…We are the last generation who played in the street. We are the 1st who played video games & the last to record songs off the radio on a cassette tape. We walked over a mile w/no worries on being taken…Learned how to program the VCR before anyone else…Played from Atari …to Nintendo…We are the generation of Tom and Jerry/Looney Toons & Captain Kangaroo…We traveled in cars w/out seat belts or air-bags & lived without cell phones. We did not have flat screens, surround sound, iPods, Facebook, Twitter, computers & the Internet…But nevertheless we had a GREAT time….

Found this on Facebook. It’s old. Something not mentioned above is the excessive use of anti-bacterial-everything. It’s a good thing to be clean and stay clean but sometimes I feel we – and particularly this generation – can become obsessed with it. A complete phobia of germs.

Just a thought. But to chime with the above, despite the lack of anti-bacterial lotions and creams and such “we had a great time”.
