"When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 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 $75,000 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 are 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!"


"Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more.  Those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat!"

"The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on."

"If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut,
forget it!"
