Times they are a changin!

Recently my sister and I took a trip by Go Bus over to Toronto, Ontario. I am 71 & my sister is 74.


Everywhere we looked, people had cell phones attached to their heads ! Everyone in a hurry, and talk about every place we went .... packed !

My sister and I started to remember about when we were kids, no cell phones, no rushing, milk was delivered by horse & cart, the people in the neighbourhood that had gardens would scoop up the manure, kids played outdoors, we mostly walked wherever we could or catch the streetcar that took us to Port Dalhousie to the beach, did things as a family, no fancy shmancy anything, just lots of fun, television was black & white & nothing vulgar shown, made sure our homework was done and if we got into trouble at school, it was worse when our parents found out, no criminal charges laid against teachers doing their jobs, no guns brought to school and by the way, the Lords prayer was present without offending new immigrants and any of you folks out there who can relate.

Please voice your thoughts of " The good old days "
