When I was growing up we didn't have cell phones, ipods, or ipads.
The style of clothes have changed.
We got a telephone when I was probably about 6th grade. I remember my mother washing clothes with a wringer washing machine and clothes were hung outside to dry. My clothes were sewn by my mother.
When I was growing up we only had one black and white TV (no color). We only had one channel until I was 10 and then we had
When I was growing up we had TVs with no remote controls so I had to be my dad's remote control and change the channel when he wanted to see what else was on. We also had phones that didn't have buttons they were called rotary phones and had to be dialed and the numbers spun back and then you could go to the next number. It took a lot longer to dial a phone number.
A long time ago baseball players didn't use gloves.
At the museum the girls in my group didn't know what a clothes line was. I realized they were no longer used and explained to them how before dryers we line feted clothing. I felt old lol, so it begins!
In my group I new that in the 1980 thay had a clothing line.
But I didin no thay didint have a bath room.
When I was about Hailey's age I was fortunate enough to live in silicone valley in the early/mid 80s and my school got four apple computer. They were in library and we got maybe an hour a week to learn on them. The graphics were very blocky and pixelated. The computers were large and they was no mouse and everything had to be started by typing in a command line. My favorite games were QWERTY and Oregon Trail. What are your favorite games you all play on the computers, chromebooks and iPads at school?
When I was in Elementary/Jr. High school there weren't any computers in my school...when I started high school I learned to type on a typewriter and finally started using a computer as a junior.
I didint no that the farmer does crops.
When I was young we played outside roller skating, riding bikes, and/or hopscotch. We watch TV, listened to the radio, played board games, cards with our neighborhood friends and family. Oh, and we had chores we had to do before we could do any of it.
We played outside mostly. We were not allowed to watch t.v. during the week,we only had 5 channels to choose from. . We had text books, wrote out the problems from the books, we didnt have worksheets. There is so much more but I don't want to date myself!!!
How the community changed when i was little was more stores were built,new and improved houses were built. My dads kings soopers was built when I was born. I was born in 2002.
YOU ARE RIGHT, WOW THAT SEEMS LIKE SO LONG AGO. Our community has grown around us, even your cousins school is new. Great observation, Elizabeth!!
When I was younger I used an "Out House", watched my dad use a "crank" to start-up the Ford, listened to the Lone Ranger, the Shadow, other shows, and music on the radio (No TV), talked to an "Operator" to connect with another person by phone. Played outside with little Dragons until they were called in by their moms.
A long time ago there were no Ipads. You had to play board games, or
you could use chalk to play games.There were no smart phones.
We grew up with only one rotary phone for a family of seven. We also were on a party line, so had to wait until our neighbors were off their phone before we could call out.
A long time ago people did not have computers.
Our first home purchase in 1973 was 27,900. Now you can barely purchase a nice car for that amount.
When my mom was little they had no car seats for kids, now its the law.
I did not no they had a boat in the old days
When I was young phones were attached to long cords!
the telephone does not have the round dialing and has push button now and we have smaller cell phones.
The toilet was out side the TV's had no remotes
We only had VCR's instead of DVD and Blue Ray players.
Growing up we hung our clothes outside on a clothesline to dry, did dishes by hand and used a push mower to mow the lawn. We did a lot of physical work. Now we have machines do a lot of it for us.
I can remember using a paper maps on road trips and then we had access to special gps maps. Now we have gps maps, phone, internet, and much more all in the palm of our hand.
Our transportation has changed. Cars now are more safe and comfortable. A long time ago there were not cars. We only had wagons pulled by horses.
When I was a little boy my grandparents had an out house and was stinky!
My grandpa let me drive his tractor. He would work the pedals and let me steer and we would bounce down the old dirt road in front of his farm.
My grandpa had a phone that didn't have numbers for dialing. You picked up the phone and held it to your ear and a lady picked up and placed the call for you and could listen to your conversations.
The phones were what they call now "Landlines" and just about everyone had party lines. This meant that you shared with your neighbors. When the phone rang you had to listen to the ring. Ours was one long and one short, two short was our neighbor and my best friend. This also meant you had to be careful when you wanted to call anyone because one of your neighbors could be talking to someone.
I have 1 sister and 2 brothers and we played outside all the time. We didn't have computers, hand held games, etc. We rode our bikes or roller skated all over town. We made our own fun and they are such great memories!
The cartoons that kids watch have changed so much since I was a child! I can't believe how awful some of them are!! They also don't know what it is like to wake up on Saturday and watch the Saturday morning cartoons.
