The Year Was 1955

Did you hear the post office is thinking about
charging 7 cents jut 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 anymore. Ever
since they let Clark Gable get by with sayind 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 some day they'll be making more than the

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

It won't be long before young couples are going to
have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can
both work.

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.

I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the
door to a whole lot of foreign business.

The fast food resturant 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.

(Thanks, Diana!)
