I used to have a shirt that said, “Not a morning person doesn’t even begin to cover it.” I figured that was fair warning. Wish I could find another one.
I used to read them but they all say pretty much the same thing, so now I just scan them fast to make sure they haven’t thrown anything new in.
I looked it up. Apparently a Filofax is more like a Daytimer than a Rolodex and they are still in business.
In 1967 I was a junior in high school. On the last day of classes as we were leaving school, a senior I barely knew came up behind me, added a book to my stack, said “Read it. If you like it pass it on.” and kept walking. The book was The Hobbit. I read it, loved it, and bought the other 3 books as well. I’ve re-read them many times since.
The original Barbie only cost $3.00. My parents splurged for the box set that came with complete wardrobe – $10.00.
If you’re getting calls from the IRS it’s definitely a scam, emails too. The IRS only communicates by snail mail on official letterhead. The only exception to this is you have contacted them and asked for a call back.
I took my 2 year old to the theater with me to see E. T. when it first came out. She loved it and still does. The following year I took her with me to see The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi on a double bill. Same reaction. You never really know how a kid will react to something. I, myself, have nightmares when watching actual horror movies but sci-fi is ok.
When I was a kid we built our own kites from twigs and newsprint. If we could scrounge a dime we could buy a kit from the store that had balsa wood and tissue paper but you still had to know what you were doing to assemble them and get them to fly. Plus you had to make your own tail. Our moms all had rag bags that we could raid.
There’s always WordPerfect. Still around. Still doing a great job. Still user-friendly.
Our local McDonalds still require uniforms. All my children have worked there at one time or another and one still is. The company provides the shirt (price deducted from their pay) and they have to supply their own pants.
