NJVetteGuy77 said...and for many who did not grow up in the 1950's you wonder if life was ever that simple. One of my all-time favorites.
You were born when... 1977?
Who are you to be preaching about what life was like in the 1950s? I was born in the 1940s, and know the 1950s from actual experience.
Whether or not life was "simple" in the 1950s as you claim, which is open to debate, it can certainly be speculated whether you are simple-minded. Not to mention totally clueless about a time over 20 years before you were even born, and 30 years before you could have any cognizant memories. Maybe next you can tell us what life was like during the Renaissance.
Who is preaching? I said you "wonder" if life was ever that simple. I also called it escapist television. Obviously, you must have seen the show. There is no violence, profanity, or nudity in it, unlike what you are likely to see today. Most episodes had nothing to do with anything in particular. For example, one episode dealt with David getting a new house key, another with Ozzie finding a odd bolt in a drawer and spending the whole day finding out what it belonged to. The list goes on. For twenty five or so minutes, the viewer is able to be taken back into another time. Whether anyone's childhood in the 50s was like that, who knows? I never even ventured to hazard a guess. Whether that was your childhood or not, that is not my problem, nor my concern. My parents were also born in the 1940's, and I have always enjoyed hearing stories about what life was like when they were children. You don't have to have lived during a certain era to want to learn more about it. If that were the case, there would be no need for history teachers. Speculate on whether I'm simple minded? Go right ahead.
