HOW OLD IS…OLD???

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. His grandfather replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:

Grandpa and baby

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: panty-hose,air conditioners, dish-washers, clothes-dryers and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and man hadn’t yet walked on the moon.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings. We listened to the Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President’s speeches on our radios. And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan ‘ on it, it was junk.

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 cents. Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

So, 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 70 years old toda
