Oh dear, I feel like maybe one of the youngest posters here!!
Allanswood, you cracked me up with that compact disc was a medical problem! Young kids now wouldn't know that would they?
I remember when a kid in Canada, we had milk deliveries but not by horse...by truck! Any home delivery is unheard of now I think!
Had to be quick in the winter! As soon as you heard the milkie...run to get the milk in...the glass bottles would explode if the milk froze! and it was near on frozen anyway so didn't take long! AND, then you'd have to go and shovel the driveway so Dad could go to work!
We kids used to sit around the radio on a winter morning...just to hear what schools were closed down for the day because of frozen pipes! Only ever happened a few times
Things were different here in Australia! Much different!
My husband still had the "outdoor loo" when I met him...and that was in 1970! Complete with redbacks!! ( and just in case anyone is wondering, we're both the same age...well except for me...I'm younger!)
I remember TV in Canada before I started school. He only had radio...but has many great memories of The Lone Ranger and other programmes that the kids raced home after school so they didn't miss an episode!
I only remember Play School...and that was many years before you had it here in Australia!
I remember my Mom doing the laundry with those revolutionary washing machines with the rollers on top? Hubbies Mom was still using the old copper when I first ever met her!!!
If there were three things today that I would have to choose right now!!!! to keep, I think, quickly, it would have to be, my washing machine (a copper scares me! too much work!), my airconditioner ( I hate it when it gets over 28 degrees!) and my computer! I hate not being able to SB at least once a day! And although I prefer a phone call to facebook, I'll check it out if I have to!
What would your three preferences be?
PS and it's not set in concrete Ã§ause if anyone comes up with something cooler!!! we are allowed to change our mind!!!
