The Remember Game

The good old remembering game. We have all played it at some time or another. The “safe” place for your money, when it comes time to pay that bill, you have forgotten your hiding place. The glasses still on top of your head, the car keys in your hand-forgot you had them with you when talking to your husband on your cell phone you are still looking for.

The fun we have with the aging process. Sometimes, I think I am losing my mind. You make the aging lists and forget half the items on that list, because…. being in a you forgot your list still sitting on the kitchen counter. or better yet, preoccupied by visiting with a friend in the store, you forgot the one item on your list you went specifically for to dinner preparations for company tonight. Isn’t getting older fun!!!!

Growing up was a different time for many of us. We didn’t have the technology the kids have today. We had to actually call our friends on a rotary phone and ask to come over, spending Saturday at the double feature movie, family gatherings, flying home-made kites in the park, summers spent at the beach, baking with grandma, learning how to crochet, feeding the animals on the farm, there was not instant music downloads you waited by the radio for your favorite song to come on and tape recorded it.

A lot has changed since I was a kid, seems like the work ethic has changed, customer service are run by teenagers with no customer service training, texting and driving, putting on make-up and driving,reading and driving, eating and driving, talking and driving, day dreaming and driving(there is a scary one for you), road rage, the teen driver that I feel sorry for they are as scared as you are to share the road with them (video games they found out lie in comparison to reality driving). I miss the good old days where grandma had cookies and milk waiting for you when you arrived, riding my horse Geronimo, 4-H, taking off in my first car just driving around Thousand Oaks, and hanging out with my friends.

    Me, too. I think a good, old garbage bin would be nice for all this technology.

      I think our generation really had more fun because so many of us used our imaginations to think of new and fun entertainment.

        I outlawed computer games on Sunday and they each spent the evening in creative play. I felt so much better watching them.
