Just How old is Grandpa!!!! and True Courage and 2nd day of Maui

True Courage

There are many forms of courage:

Have the courage to ask people for help when you need it.

Have the courage to say, "I don't know."

Have the courage to ask questions when you don't understand something.

Have the courage to push forward even if you might make mistakes.

Have the courage to do the will of our Creator.

Love Yehuda


Maui, 2nd half of Adventures in Hawaii, Day Two. Pouring rain for much of the day, but we managed to be indoors in the morning in the Sugar Museum, and found a nice wet afternoon in Lahaina that we managed to walk between the rain drops and take some nice pics.
The way home was floating down the highway and an ark would have been better than a car.
We will see what tomorrow brings
Here are the pics


How old is Grandpa!!!!






Stay  with this -- the answer is at the end...It will  blow you away. 

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about  current events. The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age and just things in general.

The Grandfather replied, 'Well, let me think a minute, I was born before: 



 Polio shots

 Frozen foods


 Contact lenses

 Frisbees and  

 the pill  

There w
ere no:  

 Credit cards  

 Laser beams  

' Ball-point pens

Man had not invented:


 Air conditioners


 Clothes dryers

 Clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air.

 Man hadn't yet walked on the moon.

Your Grandmother and I got married first . . . and then lived together. 

Every family had a father and a mother. 

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, 'Sir'. 
After I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, 'Sir.' 

We were before gay-rights, computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers and group therapy. 

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment and common sense. 

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a  privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege. 

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. 

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. 

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.. 

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt or guys wearing earrings.  

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny and the President's speeches on our radios.  

And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. 

If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan' on it, it was junk.

The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam. 

Pizza Hut, McDonald's and instant coffee were unheard of. 

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.  

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a  streetcar and a Pepsi were all a nickel.  

And if you didn't  want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, . . . but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon. 

In my day:  

 'Grass' was mowed.  

 'Coke' was a cold drink. 

 'Pot' was something your mother cooked in.   

 'Rock music' was your grandmother's lullaby. 

 'Aids' were helpers in the Principal's office.  

 'Chip' meant a piece of wood. 

 'Hardware' was found in a hardware store.   

 'Software' wasn't even a word.

We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. 

No wonder people call us 'old and confused.' They say there is a generation gap... and how old do you  think I am? 

I bet you have this old man  in are in for a shock!

Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time. 

Are you ready ????? 

This man would only be 59 years old!!
