I'm so old.....

I'm so old that I've actually made calls on a rotary dial phone

while listening to an 8-track tape

watching a black & white TV

with aluminum foil on the rabbit ears antenna!

Heck, I am only 54 and 10 months old and I have done all those things, I even remember listening to music on a real-to-reel. I even remember the first remote control TV (with rabbit ears), not really that remote as you had to drag the cable across the floor, so that really isn't that old :-). Now if you say your first car was a brand new tucker 48 than I would say you are really old.

Well now,
I can remember dad making hay before hay balers. Crank handles on cars. Your car came with a real tool kit!

I'm old enough to know how to drive a non-syncro transmission one ton truck.

I used to tease people in the Southern States when I called them and ask if they had those new fangled push-button phones (calling from Canada). That was only a very few years ago. Some would even bite.

I told someone at work I was older than most trees. A guy said he was older than a mountain. An elderly lady there chimed in and said she watched the dirt being made to create the mountains. She wins, I guess, but she died two months later......................

Yes and hey, what do you think of this electricity? Something else ain't it?

With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy. One of his best.

Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Off the subject a bit, but good. Four year old nephew told me (an electrical engineer) that he had seen electricity. I told him no way, you cannot see electricity. He replied that he stuck a spoon across the prongs of a loose cord pugged in the wall and seen the electricity. And it was Blue. He wins....he did see it!!!!!!!!!!!
