I love the good old days! I donot understand why you say it was such struggle! Meeting friends in the park,at the library, in a get together, having real in person conversations ..That was LIFE! And what is wrong finding knowledge through books and Encyclopedias?

I am 68. I used or did all of these things. It wasn't a struggle. I enjoyed and appreciated these things that were available at the time.

Yes some things are easier with the internet. It’s certainly easier to find the lyrics to a song - I like that. But it has also led to constant connections to phones/computers, no full days off of jobs, vast amounts of misinformation, people using it from afar to harass people, connecting unscrupulous people like pedophiles or conspiracy nuts. Your commentary seems to focus on the good aspects and not the price to pay.

If we wanted to connect with someone, instead of using a cell phone we had to stay home to call them. Hard line connection, and I remember the old wall phone that you had to crank to get the operator who would connect you to your party and every one would listen in on your call. That's the old party line.

Hmm...not everything was good. I remember being told I could be a teacher or maybe a nurse...have loved my teaching career, but still...and luckily, I was born white in the south, because otherwise, my family’s life would have been so very different & god-awful. Oh, and antibiotics and medical advancements...

Giving away my age - I remember picking up the phone and giving operator the three or four digit number.

Talking on the telephone with friends. Sending more cards, and writing letters.

I don't remember recording off the radio...we went to $1.49 day once a month at Eaton's and bought our favourite "45". No post-it notes either - we had silver thumbtacks (not push pins)...and Mom and Dad bought a set of Miriam Webster encyclopedias from a door-to-door salesman just before I started school - it included a dictionary and a book on birds that I still have...there were very good things in the old days and of course some things have improved but memories are fun

I remember when making a phone call, you actually had to DIAL the number, and if you didn't know the number you looked it up in the phone book, none of this going to your contacts and tapping on the name. Those were the GOOD old days. Ashamed to say that I don't know phone numbers, because I just tap a name! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ 😊😊
