The Year was 1955

THE YEAR                                                            WAS 1955
Did you hear the post office is 
thinking about charging 7 cents
 just to mail a letter?

If they raise the minimum wage
to $1.00, nobody will be able to
 hire outside help at the store.

When I first started driving, who
would have thought gas would
 someday cost 25 cents a gallon? Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.

I'm afraid to send my kids to the 
movies any more. Ever since they
 let Clark Gable get by with saying "DAMN" in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either "HELL" or "DAMN" in it.

I read the other day where some 
scientist thinks it's possible to put
 a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call "astronauts" preparing for it down in Texas.
Did you see where some baseball
player just signed a contract for
 $50,000 a year just to play ball!? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President...

I never thought I'd see the day
all our kitchen appliances would
 be electric; they're even making electric typewriters now.

It's too bad things are so tough
nowadays. I see where a few
 married women are having to work to make ends meet.

It won't be long before young
couples are going to have to hire
 someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

I'm afraid the Volkswagen car
is going to open the door to a
 whole lot of foreign business.

Thank goodness I won't live to 
see the day when the Government
 takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government.

The "Fast Food" restaurant is
convenient for a quick meal,
 but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

There is no sense going on short
trips anymore for a weekend. It
 costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

No one can afford to be sick 
anymore. At $15.00 a day in
 the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.

If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.

Know any friends who would get a kick out of these, pass this on! 

Be sure and send it to your kids and grand kids, too.
