We are going to play a game titled “How Old is Grandma.” She is talking to her grandson one day about current events, he asked what she thought about school shootings, political fighting, the computer age and things in general.

She replied:

I was born before TV, penicillin, frozen goods, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill, plus Apple was just a fruit.  There were no credit cards, pantyhose, air conditioners, dishwashers or clothes dryers....you hung your clothes in the fresh air.

Your grandfather and I got married first and then lived together.  Until I was 25 I called every man older than I “sir.”  We were before computer-dating, dual careers, day-care centers and group therapy.  Our lives were governed by The Ten Commandments, good judgement and common sense.  We were taught the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.  Serving your country was a privilege and living here was an even bigger one.

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.  We never heard of CD’s, DVR’s, yogurt or guys wearing earrings.  Out family listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny and I don't remember anyone blowing their brains out over the music of Tommy Dorsey.

Pizza Hut and McDonald’s were unheard of…we had 5 & 10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for five and ten cents.  Ice cream cones, phone calls and Pepsi were all a nickel.  You could buy a new Chevy Couple for $600 and gas was just 11 cents a gallon.  Grass was something you mowed, “Coke” was a cold drink, and “pot” was something you cooked in.  No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap.

So now that you have heard all of this how old do you think grandma is.  Well she’ll turn 77 in the fall as she was born in 1946.  Hope you played along.
