According to my grandchildren...When I was young the main source of transportation was buggies and horses unless you lived in areas that had cable cars. When I was young boys came 'a courting because there were no phones. When I was young children did chores not for allowance but simply because they were a member of the family and everyone pulled their weight. When I was young there were no malls because the dinosaurs would have crushed them. When I was young my petticoats kept me hot in the summer, warm in the winter and a proper young lady at all times. When I was young there were only 7 stars in the sky. When I was young I actually did as my parents asked of me without hesitation or without mouthing off. When I was young chocolate hadn't been invented so once a month I snuck out to the barn to punch a bale of hay. When I was young I dreamed of a day when traveling to other countries wouldn't take months. When I was young I dreamed of the day I would be a grandma... I just never knew grandchildren would make me feel so old.
