Were you a kid in the Fifties or earlier? Everybody makes

fun of our childhood! Comedians joke. Grand kids snicker.

Twenty-something's shudder and say "Eeeew!" But was

our childhood really all that bad? Judge for yourself:

In 1953 The US population was less than 150 million...

Yet you knew more people then, and knew them better...

And that was good.

The average annual salary was under $3,000... Yet our

parents could put some of it away for a rainy day and

still live a decent life... And that was good.

A loaf of bread cost about 15 cents... But it was safe

for a five-year-old to skate to the store and buy one...

And that was good.

Prime-Time meant I Love Lucy, Ozzie and Harriet,

Gunsmoke and Lassie... So nobody ever heard of

ratings or filters... And that was good.

We didn't have air-conditioning... So the windows

stayed up and half a dozen mothers ran outside

when you fell off your bike... And that was good.

Your teacher was either Miss Matthews or Mrs. Logan

or Mr. Adkins... But not Ms Becky or Mr. Dan... And

that was good.

The only hazardous material you knew about... Was a

patch of grassburrs around the light pole at the corner...

And that was good.

You loved to climb into a fresh bed... Because sheets

were dried on the clothesline... And that was good.

People generally lived in the same hometown with their

relatives... So "child care" meant grandparents or aunts

and uncles... And that was good.

Parents were respected and their rules were law....

Children did not talk back..... and that was good.

TV was in black-and-white... But all outdoors was in

glorious color....And that was certainly good.

Your Dad knew how to adjust everybody's carburator...

And the Dad next door knew how to adjust all the TV

knobs... And that was very good.

Your grandma grew snap beans in the back yard...

And chickens behind the garage... And that was

definitely good.

And just when you were about to do something really bad...

Chances were you'd run into your Dad's high school coach...

Or the nosey old lady from up the street... Or your little sister's

piano teacher... Or somebody from Church... ALL of whom

knew your parents' phone number... And YOUR first name...

And even THAT was good!
