Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.
This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!
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.
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 any more 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.

Loved this and also I was born in 1955 but don't tell anyone ;-(
Have a datetastic SSS cheer
I was born in 1951 so you're just a kid. 🙂
Love these. Could you imagine $2 a night for a motel room.
Yep, that's pretty cheap now days. 🙂
It's all a matter of perception.
It sure is Timothy. 🙂
Oh yes, I remember all those things. In some ways, those were the good days. Sandee, you and Zane have a fantastic Sunday.
I remember much of these things too Marg. 🙂
Tell stevebethere that I won't tell anybody that he's 60 because I'm 66 right now. I guess we are young bucks. As far as the jokes, they weren't funny then but they are funnier then hell now.
Have a great Sunday Sandee & Zane. See ya.
You're a year older than I am Paul. We're are very close in age though. Spring chickens we are. 🙂
Wouldn't those prices be nice today 🙂
They sure would wouldn't they. 🙂
Some things never change. You're paid what you're worth. That's why a baseball player makes more than the president.
You crack me up. You're so right about that. 🙂
those were the days, my friend, we thought they'd never end.
Yet they did end, and they are getting more expensive by the day. 🙂
30 cents for a haircut??? OMG OMG OMG!!! PS: I was born in 1955!! xoxoxo Have a great day!
Cheap isn't it. Hubby and I pay a whole lot more than that each month for our haircuts. 🙂
I remember the new New Car I brought—year I graduated college. A 1966 English MG–controvertible and fire engine red. It cost whopping $2000 dollars. That same car would easily cost in excess of $30,000 today. Of course, I only made $4000 the first year I taught school, which was in that same year. Just because things change doesn't mean it's always for the better. Have a great day Sandee!
Yep, I hear you Ron. Times were different then. Some good and some not so good. You have a great day too Ron. 🙂
oh my oh my…..how the dollar doesn't go as far as it used to!
Have a lovely day today!
A dollar doesn't go very far today. You have a lovely day too. 🙂
Heeheehee! Yep, that's about how it was, and how it is, and how it always shall be!
I could use some of that time for a bit though. It would help the pocketbook very nicely. 🙂
Hi Sandee, oh how some things change and others don't! We still think the same way, but how our lives have changed… Not necessarily for the better!
No, not necessarily for the better Debbie. 🙂
we got to go back!!
We can't, but it would be nice to experience life during a simpler time. 🙂
I can remember when I was about 7 years old and candy bars went from 5c to 10c. My neighbour and I vowed to boycott, thinking that it would make a difference.
And it never made any difference at all. It might to some degree now, but who knows for sure. 🙂
Oh how I wish! We are looking at hotels for vacation for our circus of a family and holy smokes can get it get expensive!
Yes they can get very expensive. 🙂
I wouldn't mind seeing those prices again.
It would be great as long as we're making the amount of money we're making now. Just saying. 🙂
I remember when Cokes went from 5 cents to 6 cents…and then to a whole dime! Outrageous. I ask remember when I coukd drink a Coke and eat a Baby Ruth and never gain an ounce. Gone are the good ole days!
Big hugs, honey…
I still remember…could…sheesh!
Things have really changed haven't they. 🙂
I knew what you meant Sandy. 🙂
2.00 for an overnight stay in a hotel room? wow! but then the year is 1955. 🙂
It was no different than now. The pay wasn't much so it was all relevant. 🙂
The good ol' days. 30 cent haircuts??? Outrageous!!!
It was a different time. A more quiet time, but things were just as expensive. 🙂
Born in 59:
Remember nickel fudgesickles at Lawsons.
Ten cent Shasta Cola.
A nickel for a large candy bar, not those bite sized ones.
Good times, good memories.
It was a simpler time for sure. 🙂
