What I miss most, being born in the early '50's is the "innocense." I can sum it up with this little story...my daughter being around 5 or 6 years old at the time asked "daddy, what was it like when you were my age?"
I thought about it for a moment and got some tears in my eyes. I said baby, everything was different. First, Grandpa would make breakfast for all of us. Then, while we were getting ready for Church, Grandma would start the sauce. Then after Church, we would have dinner, of course macaroni with homemade sauce, meatballs, etc. Then later, we would go to my Grandma's house - along with the rest of the family. At that time, probably around 40 or so. Then there would be more food and in the summer time? Man, the BBQ's and pots of food, cakes, pies, chickens, steaks, ETC.! It was a wonderful time. And, by the way, you made sure you bought all you needed because there were NO STORES OPEN ANYWHERE!
Now, Sunday is like - Tuesday and I don't think it'll ever be like that again. Doesn't mean we can't act like that, just because the rest of the world is going nutso! That's what I miss. The innocense. The concept of family. Yes, I mean husband, wife, 3 kids, a car in the garage and a chicken in evey pot.
