Words gone as fast as the buggy whip! Sad really! The other day a not so elderly (65) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy and he looked at her quizzically and said what the heck is a Jalopy? OMG (new phrase!) he never heard of the word jalopy!!
She knew she was old but not that old...
Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and chuckle...

About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become obsolete because of the inexorable march of technology. These phrases included "Don't touch that dial," "Carbon copy," "You sound like a broken record" and "Hung out to dry."
Back in the olden days we had a lot of moxie. We'd put on our best bib and tucker to straighten up and fly right
Heavens to Betsy! Gee whillikers! Jumping Jehoshaphat! Holy moley!
We were in like Flynn and living the life of Riley, and even a regular guy couldn't accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill. Not for all the tea in China!
Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when's the last time anything was swell?
Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats,
knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers.
Oh, my aching back. Kilroy was here, but he isn't anymore.
We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, well I'll be a monkey's uncle! or This is a fine kettle of fish! We discover that the words we grew up with,- the words that seemed omnipresent as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.
Poof, go the words of our youth, the words we've left behind. We blink, and they're gone. Where have all those phrases gone?
Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it.
Hey! It's your nickel.
Don't forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper.
Well, Fiddlesticks! Going like sixty. I'll see you in the funny papers.
Don't take any wooden nickles. Heavens to Murgatroyd!
It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills.
This can be disturbing stuff!
We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeful times. For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more,
except in our collective memory. It's one of the greatest advantages of aging.
See ya later, alligator!

As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300. or $30.00 watch - - - - - - -
they both tell the same time...
Whether we carry a $300 or $30.00 wallet/handbag - - - - - - - the amount of money inside is the same;
Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 wine - - - - - - - - - - - - the hang over is the same;
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq.ft. - - - - - - - - loneliness is the same.
You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down - - - - - - --you go down with it...
Therefore..I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven & earth, .... That is true happiness!!
Five Undeniable Facts of Life :
1. Don't educate your children to be rich.
Educate them to be Happy.
So when they grow up they will know
the value of things not the price.
2. Best awarded words in London ...
"Eat your food as your medicines.
Otherwise you have to
eat medicines as your food."
3. The One who loves you will never leave you
because even if there are 100 reasons
to give up he or she will find one reason to hold on.
4. There is a big difference between
a human being and being human.
Only a few really understand it.
5. You are loved when you are born.
You will be loved when you die.
In between, You have to manage!
If you just want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone!
But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together!
Six Best Doctors in the World
5. Self Confidence and
Maintain them in all stages of Life and enjoy healthy life.
