Fwd: 57 YEARS AGO








 
57 YEARS AGO
1955
Comments made in the year 1955!

I'll tell you one thing, if things
keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $10.00.



Have you seen the new cars

coming out next year? It won't
be long before $2,000.00 will only buy a used one.

If cigarettes keep going up in

price, I'm going to quit; 20 cents
a pack is ridiculous.

Did you hear the post office is

thinking about charging 7 cents
just to mail a letter.

If they raise the minimum wage

to $1.00, nobody will be able to
hire outside help at the store.

When I first started driving, who

would have thought gas would
someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving
the car in the garage.


I'm afraid to send my kids to the

movies any more. Ever since they
let Clark Gable get by with saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it.

I read the other day where some

scientist thinks it's possible to put
a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas .

Did you see where some baseball

player just signed a contract for
$50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President.

I never thought I'd see the day

all our kitchen appliances would
be electric. They're even making electric typewriters now.

It's too bad things are so tough

nowadays. I see where a few
married women are having to work to make ends meet.

It won't be long before young

couples are going to have to hire
someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

I'm afraid the Volkswagen car

is going to open the door to a
whole lot of foreign business.

Thank goodness I won't live to

see the day when the Government
takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are
electing the best people to
government.

The fast food restaurant is

convenient for a quick meal,
but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

There is no sense going on short

trips anymore for a weekend. It
costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

No one can afford to be sick

anymore. At $15.00 a day in
the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.

If they think I'll pay 30 cents
for a haircut, forget it.


Know any friends
who would get a kick out of these, pass this on! Be sure and send it to your kids and grandkids, too!
so busy...
I don't know if I found
a rope or lost my horse
