A Senior Citizen is one who was here before the pill, television, frozen food, credit cards and ball point pens. For us, time-sharing meant togetherness, and a chip meant a piece of wood not computers.
Hardware meant hard ware and software wasn't even a word, teenagers never wore slacks, we were before pantyhose, drip-dry clothes, dishwashers, clothes dryers and electric blankets.
We got married first and then lived together (how quaint can one be). Girls wore Peter Pan collars and thought cleavage was something the butcher did.
We were before Batman, vitamin pills, pizzas, disposable nappies, instant coffee and even Chinese take-aways.
In our day cigarette smoking was fashionable, grass was for mowing, pot was something you cooked in, a gay person was the life and soul of the party and nothing more while Aids meant beauty lotions or help for someone in trouble.
We are today's Senior Citizens, a hardy bunch when you think of how the world has changed and the adjustments we have had to make.
