I Am This Old

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I am old enough to remember getting spanked in public and having other adults say something like, "Well, she told you twice and you didn't listen."

I am old enough to remember paper grocery bags were bad because it used trees, so we went to plastic. Now we are using paper again. Strange.

The real question is are you old enough to tell your surly neighborhood tobacconist how much you paid at the PX for Balkan Sobranie in 1968?

If you are, please stop. Nobody cares. :lol:

I remember these converted into forestry air tankers flying overhead when I was a kid---polished silver and four big throbbing radials.
