My daughters used to say, "Back in the 'olden days' when you grew up, Mom ... " and then ask a question about how things were done. I came across this recently and it reminded me that the world of the Fifties really was different from the one they grew up in. No wonder they had so many questions!
Do any of those ring a bell with you?
