Once upon a Time
• there was a pay phone on every corner & you could make a call for a quarter
• children were spanked when they disobeyed the teacher
• business lunches were 2 martinis
• we didn't kiss 'til the third date
• we could go to Europe on $5 a Day
• we wore backpacks only when we went camping
• we could have a delicious lunch for $5
• the frame was not more important than the picture
• women didn't dream of becoming President
• only men wore the pants in the family
• we used to write each other letters in script & mail them at the post office...
• we could have a cigarette with our drink
• we did our grocery shopping on Saturday, etc, etc...
