Are we to alternate from one panel to the other?
Truly there is nothing new under the sun.
Please teach your kids how to read analog clocks and paper maps. Their utility hasn’t disappeared just because something easier was invented.
Broken analog watches have the right time twice a day; broken smartphones are never right.
He sounds just like my parents not adapting to the times…
I always have a google printout and my car GPS when I go somewhere I am unfamiliar with. The GPS will get you there eventually, but not by the fastest route. I enjoyed my old one though, since they put a new bridge in and it had panic attacks when I crossed the Mississippi on it.
What will today’s teenagers complain about when they’re senior citizens?
I am getting older and there are a lot of things in this modern world that I don’t understand or don’t like
For the most part I figure that’s my problem
In the city where I live, the public schools are not teaching cursive writing any more. So the kids won’t be able to read all those family documents written in cursive from their parents, grandparents and so on. The kids can’t even sign their name.
Enrollment is way up at the private Christian school where my wife teaches. Just one of the many reasons is, they are still teaching cursive.
Those are great costumes!!
I did have a woman who had driven from Maine to pick up her husband in a hospital 25 miles south of me in the state across the river! She had no GPS, because it does not work that far north of Maine, and She may not have noticed any welcome centers in New Hampshire. Luckily, I still had a New Hampshire state map and marked it up and gave it to her! (and given the route she came on, she might really have never encountered a Welcome Center)
And while you’re at it…
GET OFF MY LAWN!
I’m reminded of an email that seemed to get passed around a lot several years ago. It quoted a passage in which the author complained about the poor behavior and disrespect for authority shown by today’s youth. The upshot is that the passage was written by Socrates, almost 2,500 years ago.
In the 1700s there were NO button up shoes! Most shoes for women or men closed with buckles, if could not afford then laces.
Wigs were worn to cover shaved heads (men and women). Much easier to deal with than washing one’s own hair especially in cold weather in a cold house and only the wealthiest wore wigs of white hair – so powdering wigs was a way to make them look more expensive if one could not afford same and most did not powder their wig except for very fancy dress occasions. (Geo Washington wore his own hair and powdered it.) Most men did not carry canes.
I am an 18th century (1770s) reenactor and I know whereof I speak.
