Remember When...

A computer was something on TV
From a science fiction show of note.
A window was something you hated to clean,
And ram was the cousin of a goat

Meg was the name of a friend.
A gig was a job for the night.
Now they all mean different things,
And that really mega bytes.

An application was for employment.
A program was a TV show.
A cursor used profanity.
A keyboard was a piano.

Memory was something that you lost with age.
A CD was a bank account.
And if you had a three-inch floppy,
You hoped nobody found out.

Compress was something you did to the garbage,
Not something you did to a file.
And if you unzipped anything in public,
You'd be in jail for a while.

Log on was adding wood to the fire.
Hard drive was a long trip on the road.
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived.
And a backup happened to your commode.

Cut, you did with a pocket knife.
Paste, you did with glue.
A web was a spider's home.
And a virus was the flu.

I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head.
I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash,
But when it happens they wish they were dead.

Beth - years ago I was always asking someone, when I was working, to borrow a knife and one day I saw a cheap Imperial Knife and bought it and after having my own pocket knife I always thought how could I have lived so long without a pocket knife.... From that point on I bought more expensive knives, Buck, Schrade, Kabar, Camillus, Victorinox, etc. and my daughter snagged about all of them and kept them in her jewelry box arrange in each drawer like they were diamond rings and she always had one in her jeans or purse.. She'd fondle them and go through them and rotate the knives every other day or so and put them all to good use. She loved knives like I did and appreciated the usefulness of them. She loved Harley's too! She rode with me all over Indiana, Ohio, and parts of Kentucky. She called one morning early and said, "hey dad, come by and pick me up on your Harley and foot me for breakfast" and when I picked her up I asked her where she wanted to eat breakfast and she said, "how about that restaurant we ate at once in Cincinnati, Ohio" - ha, that was my daughter and we rode 110 miles to get breakfast! Good for your daughter, you know, you can't have too many knives....

Beth, thank you for your kind words and leaving a token for my daughter, Marjorie. Even after all this time my eyes betray me, tears still spill. I like the poem on your bio page and gosh, I recall all! I can remember VE and VJ Day like it was yesterday.... Time goes fast! Have a great 2014 (what's left of it) and it was an honor to place tokens on your loved ones memorials.

Happy Thanksgiving
Today we are feasting on Swanson TV dinners! Later in the afternoon we are going to a "All You Can Drink Buffett." (Wheel chairs provided for those who can no longer stand!)

Seriously, wishing you a special lovely day. Hope you and hubby are doing well.

RE: Just wanted to
Dear Beth,
Thank You so much, Sweet Friend - I will catch up on private e-mail before the weekend, I promise. I literally have about twenty minutes on here tonight, and so please forgive me ignoring your pages - I will try to catch up on that, too. I will probably only be on here sporadically in December, too, sigh, it is really hurting my visiting, and some of my regulars have to keep being reminded to stop round, too. !!! Hopefully the new year will be a better one for all of us, ey...anyhow, lots of love to one of my best buddies on here, and know you are always in Gannon's and my hearts and prayers. Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue
