The DIFFERENCE between who you ARE & who you WANT to be is WHAT you DO!!

You can only fail if you never have a chance to try again or you quit trying.

I am beautifully and wonderfully made...no matter what anyone else says...cause GOD said it's so!!!

I had a Revlon doll when I was about 8. She was sort of a pre Barbie doll, only slightly bigger. I wish I had her today--she'd be worth some bucks. I styled her hair constantly.

Remember those little sweet wax lips? You would wear them and eat them at the same time but the wax tasted sweet but you couldn't swallow it. Also remember the little edible necklaces you could buy for 2 cents?

Driving to town in the station wagon with my family to go to A & W. We'd pull up to an orange speaker in the parking lot. Dad would order for everyone and food would be delivered by a girl on roller skates and the food would all go on an orange tray that clipped on to the car window. How cool was that?! Root beer always came in a heavy glass mug.

I remember when were on a party line for telephone. Lots of time we couldn't get the line because someone else on our line was talking. I can remember as a kid doing some heavy breathing, and listening to other people's conversations. We made a game of it.

I remember spending $15 for groceries and have enough for the whole week with the exception of bread and milk.

I remember getting into the movie theaters with Pork & Beans labels, Brock candy bar labels.

I remember getting into the movies that only cost us .35 and having .15 cent left over for a nickel candy bar or .10 box of popcorn. I had a ..50 weekly allowance..emoticon

I remember when...
Before digital clocks were invented
Microwave ovens didn't exist
Milk was delivered
TV went off the air around midnight and there were only 3 channels
No one used seat belts
Soda Pop was reserved for holidays and special occasions
Before artificial sweetener was used in candy, gum, drinks and food
Having to wear dresses and only would wear pants in the snow
Man first walked on the moon
Before video games and home computers were invented
Before people had central heat and air in homes or automobiles
My Doctor had an ashtray on his desk in the Doctor's office
Before Factor 15 or higher sunscreen was available
Before food was sold in plastic bottles, jars and bags etc
When Cassette tapes were invented
Kids didn't carry back packs to and from school, only campers and military used back packs
