cid:20130212081124.27CB5FAF@m0005309.ppops.netStay with this -- the answer is at the end... It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother
About current events.

The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought
About the shootings at schools, the computer age, and
Just things in general.

The Grandmother 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 yet 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 Grandfather and I got married first, and then lived together.
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, "Sir."

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 sense.

We were taught to know the difference between right and
Wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was
A 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 started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the
Evenings and weekends — not purchasing condominiums.
cid:20130212081124.27CB5FAD@m0005309.ppops.netWe never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CD's, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

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

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 (5 and dime) 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.

You could buy a new Ford 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.

cid:20130212081124.27CB5FAC@m0005309.ppops.net
We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. We volunteered to protect our precious country. No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.
How old do you think I am?

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

Are you ready????? cid:20130212081124.27CB5FA3@m0005309.ppops.net This woman would be only 61 years old.
She would have been born in late 1952.
GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.
PASS THIS ON TO THE OTHER “OLD ONES.”
<BECAUSE THE YOUNG ONES WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT.>

Undecided

As I have been looking around for a place to live around San Diego, I have to the realization that I would have to roommate with someone when I first get there seeing as how my current pay would be insufficient for the rent that is even just a minimum around the area that I am looking at moving to. Still looking at moving down there in the time frame decided. Would have to apply for unemployment once I get there if I am unable to find a job within 3 months upon arrival.

On a separate note, during my look into my family history, I have found that I have a Cherokee ancestor. When I am able to get down to who, I would then be able to find my tribal number. That’s what I have been told. The process will reveal how far I will be able to take it. It has been starting to look like it is about four or five generations back. If able to retrieve and qualify for a tribal number, than I will be able to focus more sufficiently I suppose.

Granted, during the time I have remaining here in Vincennes, IN I will be able to continue to search. Just hoping that I will be able to find out more info before I go to where the river takes me.

Have been thinking about going about getting me camping gear in that I may be able to make more of a journey down. Dunham’s Sports is the closest to an REI here but I have not been inside as of yet. Want to in order to see what it is that I am able to purchase from there. Though I am really not sure what kind of outdoor supply chain may exist down in the San Diego area.

Quote of The Day by Dianne Feinstein

Male or Female: This has got to grab hold of 'your dignity' one way or another and realize it is being shaken by a Devil.

Quote of the day by Dianne Feinstein..........

Dianne Feinstein: "All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms."

Yep, - she really said it on Thursday in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee...

and the quote below from the LA Times is priceless. Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.
Kurt Nimmo: "Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her anti-firearms bill."
Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:

"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California , but we seem to have a strange urge to elect

really obnoxious women to high office.
I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine , even comes close.

When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington , we're Number One.

There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein,

Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi,

they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'.
The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab.

You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."
Columnist Burt Prelutsky,
Los  Angeles Times

Be sure to forward this to all of the “mentally ill” vets you know.
