And Stanley, don't forget the Sears and Roebuck catalog. Times have really changed, though. When I go to the outhouse, I take my I-pod or my laptop with me.
Also, the country music was better back in the good ole days. Especially since I spent so many years in country radio. Songs like "You're the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly" by Conway and Loretta. And don't forget that classic "Take Me To The Cornfield Honey, I'll Kiss Ya Tween the Ears."
Real, true, meaningful stuff. I am still ticked that Conway and Loretta didn't get an Emmy..or Grammy...or Grampy...for that song.
And you learn real appreciation for the arts in school. Especially when the teacher would beat the living daylights out of you for doodling during math class.
Oh, and these days we have time out. My daughter is 12 now, and her cumulative time out will end when she is 47 years old. But that is pending whatever happens today. Back when I was a kid, my mom gave me time out. She took time out and whipped my hind end. Then she took MORE time out and did it again. I hated time out.
