Back Over My Shoulder?
Well my dear friends, here we are about to venture into a New Year and what it brings us will be the big question?
This might sound silly but I for one dread most of all the last week before the new year. For have you ever noticed that the media will spend many hours on re-telling us what all the negative things that happened for the year---duh! Do they think we were not here and maybe on some other planet?
This only made me think about what events took place before I arrived in this time period. We somehow forget about early events and people. Oh yes, there were negative things happening then too but I will attempt to just bring some of the more pleasant events that i personally would have liked to have seen or been a part of.
Halley's Comet made its appearance. Everyone was caught up in dancing the tango.
Women could vote.
Prohibition was in but the speakeasy's did a brisk business.
The Charleston dance had become popular
Talking movies were invented.
First Olympic Winter Games.
Babe Ruth makes home-run record
First Mickey Mouse Cartoon.
Yes my friends, sometimes we just need to glance back over our shoulder and linger on some of those slower times and maybe learn from our past.
P.S I do have a piece of that past---my MICKEY MOUSE watch and it is still ticking!
