-----early morning--looking over the lake----with a thin layer of ice over it!
Sundays, I always reflect----dunno why--maybe because I was born, sorta in the ice age----before there was television----Our 1st TV was a black and white Admiral TV---before that, our family had a console radio----As a kid, we'd sit in front of that radio and listen to "Teddy Bear's picnic" .
There were no fast food restaurants----We went out to eat quite often--could order whatever we wanted---family picnics beside a 2 lane highway were popular--
My Mom cooked everything--There were no "take outs"---
And we ran , like Hooligans around the neighbourhood--always felt safe---
I don't believe things were better then--just different---
Dessert then was an orange---or a homemade cake sometimes!
Fresh veggies were mostly from our garden--or a fruit stand beside the road----and they were plentiful---I don't remember treats between meals---
Sometimes on a very hot evening, Dad would buy us "Rolo ice cream things" which we would unwrap and put on a cone---or a bottle of orange crush--pop then was in bottles---
There was no bottled water---Water came from the tap-period!-
Life seemed uncomplicated---not better----just different----
Maybe there is more time to remember stuff --on Sunday!
