Hilarious and how true! When did life become so complicated?

R♥
Thanks so much Toritto! I meant to put "Puffed Rice" - Not what you throw at a Pregnant Bride! ha ha
Thanks so much FunsunA! Oh yeah...and "Brocollini"!
Thanks so much "alsoknownas" - you're right about Books! You can't tell a Blog by its avatar!
I'd comment on this, Marilyn, but I have to go marinate an artisanal pheasant in pomegranate nectar.
That's funny Dan! While you do THAT - I have to wash clothes down by the rock!
Malcolm XY - 9 Planets? There's 10! Pluto & now Cranky...I mean "Grumpy"! Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks for stopping by Jane Smithie - it's ICE CUBE TRAYS! Next time I'll put a pic of a "Sanitary Belt" from the year 1900 I found on ebay! Not kidding!
Thanks blufeather for your laughter that we all need for the new year!
Marilyn, Here's another thing that's different: motherhood! There's a lot of pressure on moms now to be more and more natural and eco-conscious. I would never have made the cut, that's for sure! I would have flunked at the idea of making my own baby food and co-sleeping!
Diapers instead of engineered, wrap-around, leak-proof, supporting, instant hold tabbed, EXPENSIVE, throw-away, environmentally friendly (hah!), "huggies"......!
.
Nice piece. I remember all those things + kerosene lamps and I would trade them all for an iPad.

Thanks so much Linda P. It's so true about Motherhood! The Ad Men have got us from Cradle to Grave! Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks so much Sky! Oh, you've been down to the Landfill too! ha ha But you know - when those Diapers first came on the scene - it was Mother's nirvana! New Moms now just take it for granted.
Thanks so much Gerry! You're dating yourself - but I can do that too...I remember the La Brea Tar Pits before it had a Gift Shop! ha ha
