If you want to understand people – understand their perspective. One of those perspectives is time.
I remember when:
Everyone had a black dial telephone – and party lines
Sunday night TV was Walt Disney and The Ed Sullivan Show
We got our first colour TV
Listening to records on the new Hi Fi – 45s, 78s and LPs
We bought milk in glass jugs from the corner store – I broke one
Getting the strap at school – more times that I care to admit
Wondering where in the world Vietnam was – and why was it on TV every night?
Listening to air raid sirens and wondering if this was the end of the world
If you want to understand me and people like me then you might need to appreciate some of those things.
