From the world of everything.
I miss the relative convenience of public payphones - portable phones aren't cost effective for my situation. Your other items are also excellent choices.
Thank you. It's true that people are putting pen to paper and calculating almost by rote but both skills seem rare which, admittedly, isn't the same as not seeing "it anymore" - the issue with high-quality items: same thing - my bad... twenty lashes with a wet noodle.
Why thank you :)
Oh yes the older things were better. When I am out at a store and notice someone with nich clothing I always know it is something old because nothing made today looks as nice.
me too it is too cold and I always wonder if i am doing it correctly.
We have some left although the one close to me went out of business. Seems cars like mine a prius just don't fill up enough to pay for pump attendants. One other place the owner an older man pumps the gas to save money.
Boz you got them all. Wind up clocks.
Public drinking fountains, police patrols on foot, letters written by hand, high-quality man-made goods, U.S. textiles made from the ground up, simple adding and subtracting in one's head.
We have walking police when there is a concert or event downtown. But mostly they are on dirt bicycles all summer,m the in shape guys at least. Fat old guys still stay in the jeeps.
There once was a gent known as JD,
Who said, to a well-bred young lady,
" 'Tis sad, website planners
Can't legislate manners;
The trolls are so crude, rude and shady!"
Indeed; you were the inspiration for many of them.
You can still find payphones here-
Usually in shopping malls and bus/train stations.But not that many really.
I know pay phones are important especially in places there are no towers no cell service. Lots of places like that on coastal Maine. They ought to put up a windmill with phone tower out there someplace. We really need both phone towers and electricity sources.
I have my newspaper delivered.The paperboy is 60!
Funny only older people want to work now, the kids think they deserve to sleep all day and live for free.
Civil discourse, smoky bars/pubs, floppy disks, Jarts, and console TVs.
Trees taking children hostage, non-reality television, people reading actual books.
That we are all the same. Only through the eyes of a child is there such hope and innocence.
bambi so cute
We still play with the lincoln logs but have added legos to the mix.
I got lincoln logs as a kid but they didn't help play with dolls.
CUTE GUYS!! :P well not entirely there just are less. What with such travesties as the hipster beard trends and the fedora vest combo look there really isn't much for me to look at there that doesn't scream "crazed eastern european ventrilloquist from the 20s"
Most of the rotary phones are gone and a stewardess (see how old I am) remarked on a flight I was one years ago that she had not seen anyone play solitaire with a real deck of cards in ages. I don't leave home without a book and a deck of cards.
Also steam engines
