Aloha Night Owl!

A little sun, a little rain and a chance to do a little good deed. So all in all a good day.

Seems like everywhere other than here and Alaska are celebrating the early advent of spring. Guess we'll just have to wait.....and look forward to St. Patrick's Dau.

I was born in the late 50s — gosh, I miss the innocence.

Good morning, MoochPooch.
I was born in the mid-50s
(actually the next thread will mention my birth...hehe)
and I'm with you. It was okay back then to be nice, innocent, cool
seems nowadays the kids want to be accepted by the bad guyz.

Good morning, CMN ((HUGS))

Thank you for that trip down memory lane.

I wasn’t yet born in ‘52, one sister was, and don’t remember a lot of what happened in the 50s - I do have snippets of it.

I do remember - “idyllic life then. No drugs - monogamy was still in style - very little crime. We had God in the schools - and incidentally - largely at the instance of the Knights of Columbus, the words “under God” were added to the Pledge under a statute signed by Pres. Eisenhower in 1954” - which rolled into the early sixties.

I was in kindergarten and (heaven forbid) walked to school! Just under a mile. No matter what the weather...lol.

I used to walk to school when I first started, too. I had 2 older sisters and we'd walk close to a mile to school. And we spent more time outside than in!

Just think...

If it hadn’t been a leap year, 3/15/12 would have fallen upon a WEDNESDAY instead of a Thursday.

Wednesday is my MOST unpleasant day of the week.
Thursday is my nicest.
Go figure!

An Arab enters a taxi cab in Dallas, Texas..........

Once he is seated, he asks the cab driver to turn off the radio because he must not hear music as decreed by his religion and, in the time of the prophet, there was no music, especially Western music, which is music of the infidel’s and certainly no radio ........

So the cab driver politely switches off the radio, pulls over to the side of the road, stops the cab, and opens the back door.

The Arab asks him: “What are you doing man?”

The Texan answers: “In the time of the prophet there were no taxis. So get your ass out and wait for a camel.”

You gotta love Texans!

I am flat bushed and ready for the weekend, it's been a busy and wet week.

No big plans, not really into March Madness, but looking forward to baseball season opening soon.

Daughter-girl may even bless me with her presence :=)

I hope you have a great day and a fabulouscool weekend!

Happy Friday To The Canteen


Thanks for the thread, beachy.I was a junior in college in 1952..
and married.
We did have a TV but I wasn't terribly impressed with the grainy picture.
My children were born in 54 and 56 while my husband was in the Navy
They are both glad they grew up in more innocent, conservative times

*Thank you to all who serve our country*

I’m here (waving my arms in the air)

Good morning, Pro ((HUGS))

Geez, missed you again today.

Seems we’ll have a busy weekend according to my husband. Got shopping to do. And we may try to get out on Sunday for a quick breakfast.

We must have a lot of moisture in the air because my curly hair - which has been almost as straight as a board this winter - has suddenly decided to frizz up after my morning walk. LOL

Hope you have a wonderful time with daughter-girl.

BTW, where you born in the 50s? Didn’t see where you took a trip down memory lane. hint

Have a sunnylicious weekend.
