52 Week Blog Challenge- Week 7

My Childhood Memories……..

When I think back to my childhood, I can remember that there were no cell phones and social media which is now the babysitter for almost every child and adult in life. We have gotten to the point where we wake up and first thing we think of is picking up our cellphone…right? Everything is all about technology which is a leading cause of some of the anxieties and stress in the world. Let me take you back to when times were simple.

Classic Drive-In Theatre with cars and neon sign

When I was a kid, me and my family used to go to a Drive-In movie on the weekends and on our way there we used to pick up our favorites McDonald’s or what we in Cleveland like to call the best barbecue polish boys in town .

When I was a kid, I loved watching the classic cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny. I also loved Scooby Doo and the Jetsons. When my dad would work the afternoon shift, right before he would leave we would watch The Flintstones, which was my favorite. For some reason, I can’t get into the new cartoons…too high tech and unrealistic.

I used to watch 70’s and 80’s television shows with my sister during the summer and some of our favorites were…

another one of our favorites was watching one particular game show and some 80’s music videos on……

In the 80’s, I was introduced to computers and because my dad was a programmer, I learned alot about using one and learning how to play games on them with what was called floppy discs. He was able to create once his own questions and answers to one popular game called Jeopardy….which was so much fun!!

My childhood memories in the 80’s and 90’s never included cellphones and social media just bikes and boom boxes. What if we all woke up one day and you had no cell phone, no beeper, no video game consoles, no social media, no Blu-ray, no high tech televisions, no dish, no Bluetooth, no laptops, no tablets and most importantly Alexa….what would you do?
