How did one survive ? With Sound

PowerPoint Presentation:

How did one survive growing up in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s ?

PowerPoint Presentation:

We had no seatbelts, no airbags and sitting in the back of a ute was a treat…

PowerPoint Presentation:

Our baby prams had the most georgeous lead based colours…

PowerPoint Presentation:

No such thing as tamper proof bottle tops… Opening kitchen cupboards was a breeze… as safety locks were unheard off…

PowerPoint Presentation:

Cycling was like a breath of fresh air… no safety helmets, knee pads or elbow pads, with plenty of cardboards between spokes to make it sound like a motorbike…

PowerPoint Presentation:

When thirsty we only drank tap water, bottled water was still a mystery…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We kept busy collecting bits & pieces so we could build all sort of things … and we were fearless on our bikes even when the brakes failed going downhill…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We were showing off how tough we are, by how high we could climb trees & then jumping down….It was great fun….

PowerPoint Presentation:

We could stay out to play for hours, as long as we got back before dark, in time for dinner…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We walked to school, or sometimes we even rode our bike.

PowerPoint Presentation:

We had no mobile phones, but we always managed to find each other…. How? no one knows…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We lost teeth, broke arms & legs , we got cuts and bruises and bloody noses…. nobody complained as we had so much fun, it wasn’t anybodys fault, only ours

PowerPoint Presentation:

We ate everything in sight, cakes, bread, chocolate, icecream, sweet sugary drinks, yet, we stayed skinny by fooling around.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And if one of us was lucky to find a 1 litre coca cola bottle we all had a swag from it & guess what? nobody picked up any germs...

PowerPoint Presentation:

We did not have Play Stations, MP3, Nintendo’s, I-Pods, Video games, 99 Cable TV channels, DVD’s, Home Cinema, Mobile phones, Home Computers, Laptops, Chat-rooms, Internet, etc ... BUT, we had REAL FRIENDS!!!!

PowerPoint Presentation:

We called on friends to come out to play, never rang the doorbell, just went around the back…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We loved being let loose in the big bad world…without bodyguards…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We played with sticks and stones, played cowboys and Indians, doctors and nurses, hide and seek, soccer games, over and over again…

PowerPoint Presentation:

When we failed our exams we were given a second chance by simply repeating the same grade…without visiting psychiatrists, psychologists or counselors… such were the days…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We had freedom, success, disappointments and responsibilities... Most of all, we learned to respect others…

PowerPoint Presentation:

Are YOU from that generation?? If that’s the case, email this to all your friends from the same era… Maybe this message will help them forget the stress that surrounds us these days….and just for a few moments puts a smile to their faces as they remember what life was really like in the good old days……

PowerPoint Presentation:

HAVE A SUPER DAY!
