You know you are a baby boomer, born in the 1950s and 1960s if you remember when:
- The milk man cometh
- the World Book Encyclopedia salesman showed up at your family’s front door
- going to the drive-in movies with your parents was exciting (I remember seeing Goldfinger at Timonium Drive-In….shhh…don’t tell my parents. I was supposed to be asleep in the back seat!)
- mail arrived accurately without a zip code
- phone numbers were only two letters and five digits
- pretzels and potato chips were delivered by truck in large tin cans
- the Girl Scout “flying up ceremony” was prestigious
- you had to walk to the TV to change the channel
- seat belts were not even in the vocabulary
- Miss Nancy ruled Romper Room
- Thumbelina was the most wanted gift on your Xmas List
- fun meant “hanging with the crowd,” at S.S. Kresgres or Reads Drugstore drinking ice cold soda, jiving to the juke box, and swirling around on swivel stools.
Those were the days, weren’t they?
As Robert Frost once said “In three words I can sum up what I have learned about life. It goes on.”
