The 1960 Elcamino, one of the sporty Pickups, referred to as the city slicker pickup.
I enjoyed the comments so much on my post about the changes in life so much I could not get them off my mind. The post was not earth shaking, we all think of the same thing. I just wanted you to know some of the things you said, just brought up more and more innovations. Rick mentioned digital photography. Ain’t that the truth? Remember when you had to be careful or you would run out of film? I know that is a minor part of the technology, but one the average ‘older person’ can associate with.
Bobbie mentioned 9-11 happened on their honeymoon!
Betty hit me with the Microwave and DVD (CD) (vs movie film.)
MA the internet (amen), Lisa the encyclopedias, Friend Glenda the GPS, I depend on that too much now-days.
That NanaDiana.. knocked my boots off with, ”I was dad’s first born and he was 53.” Her dad was born in 1897, WOW!
Myra and Darla mentioned the Medical technologies. Now here got me really thinking. We do have some ‘money hungry’ pharmaceutical outfits who have drove people to their knees and poverty at the costs. But, BUT we do have some dedicated researchers who have brought us some miracle drugs.
Injections to specific ‘points’ of the body, I can ‘halfway’ understand relief and healing. But, BUT! A pill that enters thru the stomach? As a friend asked, “How does that know my throat, toe, and finger or hip is what needs the help?”
These doctors in research are amazing, but some in management want to use the doctor’s search for healing to capitalize on citizen’s NEEDS for riches.
Personally.. After receiving two Cochlear implants I met someone who was a friend and university student with the person who developed the Implant. The developer did not ‘patent’ it, but put it into public domain to help the deaf.
To me that signifies someone more interested in healing than money!
PS: I am sitting here unconsciously tapping my implants and Sherry asks, "Are they not working?"
"They are working great, just thinking about them," I replied.
