THAT’S ONLY 52 YEARS AGO!

“I’ll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way there going-----

it’s going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $20.00"


“Have you seen the new cars coming out next year?

 It won’t be too long before $2,000 will only buy a used one!”


“If cigarettes keep going up in price, -----I’m going to quite

 -----a quarter a pack is just ridiculous.”


“Did you happen to hear that the post office is

thinking about charging us a dime 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 started driving, who would have thought that gasoline

 someday would cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better

 off leaving the car in the garage.”


“Kids today are really impossible.

Those duck tail hair cuts—impossible to stay groomed.

The next thing you know The boys will be wearing their hair

as long as the girls!”


“I’m reall y 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 its possible

to put a man on the moon by the end of the century.--------

Yeh! They have some fellows they call “astronauts

preparing for it somewhere in Texas...Really!”


“Did you happen to see where some baseball player just signed

a contract for $75, 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 live to see the day all kitchen appliances

would be electric..They are even making electric typewriters now.”


“I’s too bad that things are so tough nowadays.

I see where a few married women are having

 to work now to make ends meet.”


“It won’t be long before young couples are going

 to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.”


“Marriage doesn’t mean a thing any more.-------

those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced

at the drop of a hat.”


“I’m just really afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open

us up to a whole lot of foreign business.

Just you watch and see.”


“Thank goodness ! ! !

I won’t live to see the day when the Government takes

half of our income in taxes.

I sometimes really wonder if we are really

electing the best people to congress.”


“The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather;

but I seriously doubt if it will ever catch on.”


“There’s really no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha

 anymore for the week-end. It now costs

nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel.”


“No one can afford to get sick anymore;

$35.00 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood.”


“If they think that I’ll pay 50 cents for a hair cut.

------just forget it.”
