New Years Eve, again

This year will mark the 63rd New Years Eve of my life and I will probably celebrate it like so many others during my lifetime, going to bed early. I could probably count on my fingers the number of times I went out to celebrate the coming of a new year. For the first 12 years or so of our marriage, Pat and I stayed up and watched the celebrations around the world while we ate snacks. Then for a number of years we snacked early and went to bed to watch the TV programs. Last year, we had the TV on but we both dozed off so the TV watched us.

Since this New Year will come and go the same way, I will speak out early and wish everyone health, happiness, and the best year of your life. I especially want to wish Jon the best and thank him for the wonderful job he does in editing the Nanty Glo Home Page. Jon spends a lot of time and money to publish a first rate website. He receives no compensation and if the general rule holds true, probably receives more criticism than praise. While surfing the Internet, I have encountered professionally designed websites that don't come up to the quality of work done by Jon. The Nanty Glo Home Page exposes the community to the world and offers former and current residents a place to share experiences and stories, an Internet Coffee Shop.

Thank you, Jon.

Older than dirt...

This made me think of a recent incident with Kati. My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but Kati had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to "sprinkle" clothes with because we didn't have steam irons.

Man, I am old.

How many do you remember?

  • Head lights dimmer switches on the floor
  • Ignition switches on the dashboard
  • Heaters mounted on the inside of the fire wall
  • Real ice boxes
  • Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards
  • Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner
  • Using hand signals for cars without turn signals
