How old is this woman?

Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by AgeofKnowledge, Nov 6, 2015.

  1. She was born before:

    polio shots
    frozen foods
    contact lenses
    Frisbees and
    the birth control pill

    There were no:

    credit cards
    laser beams or
    ball-point pens

    Man had not yet invented:

    air conditioners
    clothes dryers
    and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
    man hadn't yet walked on the moon

    She married, did not live together with men.
    Almost every family had a father and a mother

    There was no computer-dating, term dual careers, and corporate daycare centers.

    Her life was governed by the Bible, Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.

    She was taught by her parents, church, school, and community to know the difference between morality and immorality; right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for her own actions.

    Serving our country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege.

    Fast food was what people ate during Lent.

    Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

    Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends - not purchasing condominiums.

    She did not hear FM radios, tape decks , CD's, electric typewriters, and guys did not wear earrings.

    She listened to Big Bands and the President's speeches on AM radios.

    If she saw anything with 'Made in Japan 'on it, it was junk.

    The term 'making out' referred to how well one did on school exams.

    Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.

    There were 5 & 10-cent (5 and dime) stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.

    Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.

    And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

    You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600,but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

    In her day:

    grass was mowed,
    Coke was a cold drink,
    pot was something your mother cooked in and
    rock music was your grandmother's lullaby.
    Aids were helpers in the Principal's office,
    chip meant a piece of wood,
    hardware was found in a hardware store and.
    software wasn't even a word.

    We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.

    She volunteered to protect our precious country.

    Today people call her "old and confused" and say she's part of the generation gap.

    How old do you think she is?

  2. Older than I am.

  3. Probably born between 1920 and 1929... a Mom to seniors, a Grand Mom to the 50's generation and a Great Grand Mom to the 20 to 30 something generation. A person that everyone can learn from concerning history, conduct, love of God, love of country and love of family. A true lady in all respects who cooked dinner each evening for the entire family, a person who went without so others in the family could have basic necessities and a patriot who honors the flag of the country and one of the best citizens that the country has ever had.

    This is also a person who is very close to meeting God, so cherish your time with her and learn from her while you still can.

  6. Before 1928 (Alexander Fleming - penicillin), and before September 7, 1927 (TV), and before frozen food (1924), so no less than 91 years old and no older than Susannah Mushatt Jones, who is currently 116 years old.

  11. If you use Back to the Future III, the Frisbee pie company, 1885 was when that happened. Actually they really did exist, but the frisbee of today wasn't made until after 1951 by Walter Frederick Morrison when he made the Pluto Platter. Then Rich Knerr and A.K."Spud" Melin saw them "flying" around and while their own company was struggling they partnered up with Mr. Morrison to create the Wham-O company and made the Frisbee. :p
