How Old is Grandpa? Can you Guess?

The age might just take you by surprise.  It did me. 

Stay with this -- the answer is at the end.  It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events.
The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at
schools, the computer age, and just things in general..

The Grandfather replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:

*       television

*       penicillin

*       polio shots

*       frozen foods

*       Xerox

*       contact lenses

*       Frisbees and

*       the pill

There were no:

*       credit cards

*       laser beams or

*       ball-point pens

Man had not invented:

*       pantyhose

*       air conditioners

*       dishwashers

*       clothes dryers

*       and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and

*      man hadn't yet walked on the moon

Your Grandmother and I got married first, .. ... ... and then lived

Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, "Sir".
And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title,

We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers,
and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand
up and take responsibility for our actions.

Living in this country was a privilege; serving this country was an even
bigger privilege..

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.  

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.  

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and
weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt,
or guys wearing earrings.  

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our

And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy

If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan ' on it, it was junk  

The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam...  

Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a

And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough
stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, . .. . but who could afford one?
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.  

In my day:

*      "grass" was mowed,

*      "coke" was a cold drink,

*      "pot" was something your mother cooked in and

*      "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.

*      "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,

*      " chip" meant a piece of wood,

*      "hardware" was found in a hardware store and

*     "software" wasn't even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a
husband to have a baby.

No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation
gap. and how old do you think I am?

I bet you have this old man in mind....you are in for a shock!

Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the
same time.

 Are you ready ?????

This man would be only 59 years old. 
Drag and drop me

Father's Day 2011

Father's Day is all about fun and celebrations, therefore jokes and good humor should always be included in the celebrations so that it becomes easier to see that lovely smile on your Father's face.

  • When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. - Mark Twain
  • By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.  - Charles Wadsworth
What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail.

- Unknown

  • "My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me." - Jim Valvano
  • "He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." - Clarence Budington Kelland
  • "One father is more than a hundred Schoolmasters." - George Herbert,
