Signs of How Times Change


Remember when buying Cola Colas was “dirt cheap”?

you get a crate for the price of what you pay

for 6 today…

Or better yet, remember Gas stations were the first

one stop shops?

You could buy items under $5 including gas.

Now that’s really dirt cheap.


What about those haircuts?  Now, you can afford to get a hair cut a day

and your shoes shined if you pay  the price you paid during those day.


Remember the White high tops?

What about those Buster Brown shoes?

If you like me, you had them in every color.

Shoes like those lasted a long times, today,

it’ll save a few hundreds every few months

if you give up those Nike’s…


I know this car is still sitting

in someone’s yard, that’s how

good the products were…

if someone hit this one,

it will not easily bend

or fold like the  ones today.


Remember way back when record players

were cheap and you bought vinyl

albums all the time?  Well today, you hardly can

afford one cd at a time and don’t consider

the cost of today’s technology.

My oh my, how time has changed. Life was

simple.  You wore two sets of clothes because you

didn’t want the good  ones to get dirty. Prices were

dirt cheap and words to songs were not

considered dirty.

  1. If I tell you I wore those Buster Browns,( or as we called them in my small town, Saddle Shoes) while I played my vinyl Beatles albums on a tiny record player, then I would reveal my age, so I won’t.
