Back in the day

Things were different back in the day when there were no smart phones.

People had to use their brain more.

They had to go to encyclopedias and look stuff up, there was no google to go to back then.

You couldn’t play music, or stream TV on your phone like we can now.

If you wanted to listen to music, you had to turn on the radio, or a record player.

If you wanted to watch TV you had to turn on the TV and subscribe to cable, or else get the free channels that were offered.

You couldn’t just write notes to yourself or write lists on your phone like we do now.

If you needed to write a grocery list, you had to write it on regular paper.

There was no internet, no email, no world wide web.

Everything was simpler back in those days. It is too bad the world is not like that now.

Nowadays, everyone is rushing around.

Everyone is always too busy to notice the little things.

I wish we could go back to simpler times sometimes. I miss those days.

  1. It’s funny my grandmother used to say the same thing about the telephone and TV. It wasn’t simpler, I think. The problems were just different ones. I don’t think life is ever simple. It’s just us wanting it to be 🤗
