Our Simple Pleasures

celebrating life one moment at a time

Today’s 10 on Tuesday topic is interesting:   10 things that were better “way back when….”   Man…how many times have I said that something was better when I was a kid.  Wow……I’m going to have to narrow this down!  LOL

  1. Movie theater popcorn
  2. TV sitcoms
  3. Saturday morning cartoons
  4. Gas stations (and prices, for that matter!)
  5. MTV
  6. Cable TV
  7. “Playing outside” with our neighborhood friends
  8. Board games
  9. Customer Service
  10. Handwriting

I could have gone into the societal issues we now have that didn’t seem to be there “Way back when!”

For example:  A few common standard societal issues that have gone awry:   Respect,  Appropriate Appearance, Appropriate Behavior, Parenting standards, Allowing kids to just be kids…..play…..unstructured play, “quiet time” away from people (we now have instant access to anybody!)….I could go on and on…but I’ll stop now.
