COMMENTS MADE IN THE YEAR....1955

 

Comments made in the year 1955..

"I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20."

"Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $2000 will only buy a used one."


"If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous."


"Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?"


"If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store."


"When I started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage."


"Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls."




I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying 'damn' in 'Gone With The Wind,' it seems every new movie has either "hell" or "damn" in it.


"I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Texas ."


"Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the president."


"I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now."



"It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet."


"It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work."


"Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat."


"I'm just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business."



"Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to congress."


"The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on."


"There is no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel."


"No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood."


"If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut,
forget it."

A MOTHER'S PRAYER


A MOTHER'S PRAYER ...

A couple invited some people to dinner. 

 At the dinner table, the mother turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,

 "Honey, would please say the blessing?"

The daughter replied, "I don't know what to say."

The father told her, "Just say what you hear mommy say."

The daughter bowed her head and said............

"Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"

FEELING NORMAL

I have a doctor appointment tonight. It was the only one that I could get!

We will go over tests results. I want to stop taking some of the med's that I was put on a year ago after I had the stint put in near my heart.

I don't tolerate medicine very well. One of the med's is making me feel very tired.

Now, which one????

I heard once that getting old ain't for sissies and now....I know that to be true.

I'm not old in years but am feeling very old.

I start and exercise program on Wednesday and I know that it will help a lot.

I can't wait to get started and lose some of the weight that I have gained this year due to the med's (that's what I tell people anyway).

I just want to feel normal again.

That is what I will ask Santa to being me!!!!!

Feeling normal, what a nice gift that would be!!!

THE SHOE BOX

 

A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other, except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.




For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one
day the li ttle old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the
shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside.

She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000.

He asked her about the contents. "When we were to be married," she said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll."

The little old man was so moved, he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.

"Honey," he said, "that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?"





"Oh," she said, "that's the money I made from selling the dolls."







A Prayer.......

Dear Lord, I pray for Wisdom to understand my man;
Love to forgive him;
And Patience for his moods;
Because Lord, if I pray for Strength,
I'll beat him to death.
