It's not how much you know about God but how much God loves you, that makes the difference.


No matter what our kids And the new generation think about us,




OUR Lives are LIVING PROOF !!!  


To Those of Us Born  

1925 - 1955:   

At the end of this email is a quote of the month by Jay Leno.


If you don't read anything else, Please read what he said.     




1930s, '40s, 'and


50s, !! 



First, we survived being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank  

While they were pregnant.  



They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.  



Then, after that trauma, we were  put to sleep on our tummies  in baby cribs

Covered   with bright colored

Lead-based paints.  



We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets,  

And, when we rode our bikes,  

We had baseball caps,  

Not helmets, on our heads.  





As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes..  





Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.  



We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.  





We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.  





We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar.

And we weren't overweight. 




Because we were always outside playing...that's why!  



We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.  

No one was able to reach us all day.  

--And, we were OKAY.  





We would spend hours building  

Our go-carts out of  scraps  and then ride them down the hill,  

Only to find

Out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned  To solve the problem..  





We did not

Have Play Stations, Nintendos and X-boxes. There were  

No video games,

No 150 channels on cable,  

No video movies

Or DVDs,  

No surround-sound or


No cell phones,  

No personal computers,  

No Internet and

No chat rooms.  






And we went

Outside and found them!  



We fell out of

trees, got cut,  

Broke bones and


And there were

No lawsuits  

From those accidents.


    We would get

Spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, 

And no one would call child services to report abuse.  




    We ate worms,

And mud pies  

Made from dirt,


The worms did

Not live in us forever.  




We were given

BB guns for our 10th birthdays, 22 rifles for our 12th, rode horses, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and

   -although we were

Told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes.  



We rode bikes

Or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just Walked in and talked to them.

Little League had 


And not everyone

Made the team.  

Those who didn't

Had to learn  

To deal with




Imagine that!!  





The idea of a parent bailing

Us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! 





These generations have

Produced some of the best risk-takers,  

Problem solvers, and

Inventors ever.  



The past 60

To 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas..  



We had freedom,

Failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.  





If YOU are

One of those born  

Between 1925-1955, CONGRATULATIONS!  



You might want

to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers

and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.  



While you are

at it, forward it to your kids, so they will know how brave and lucky their parents




Kind of makes

you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it ?  


The quote of

the month 


Jay Leno:  


    "With hurricanes, tornados,

fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the 

country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist 

attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?"

  For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us...go ahead and delete this.   

For the rest of us..... please pass this on.
