Slide1:  How did we survive ? Slide2:  How did anyone survive growing up in the 50s, 60s and 70s? Slide3:  We had no seatbelts, no airbags and sitting in the back of a ute was a treat… Slide4:  Our baby prams had the most georgeous lead based colours… Slide5:  No such thing as tamperproof bottle tops… Opening kitchen cupboards was a breeze… as safety locks were unheard off… Slide6:  Cycling was like a breath of fresh air… no safety helmets, knee pads or elbow pads, and with plenty of cardboards between spokes to make it sound like a motorbike… Slide7:  When thirsty we only drank tap water—bottled water was still a mystery… Slide8:  We kept busy collecting bits and pieces of this and that so we could build all sort of things … and we were fearless on our bikes even when the brakes failed going downhill… Slide9:  We showed off how tough we were by how high we could climb trees and then jumping out….It was great fun…. Slide10:  We could stay out to play for hours, as long as we got back before dark in time for dinner… Slide11:  We walked to school, or sometimes rode our bikes. Slide12:  We had no mobile phones, but we always managed to find each other…. Slide13:  We lost teeth, broke arms and legs, got cuts and bruises and bloody noses…. nobody complained since we were having so much fun. It wasn’t anybody’s fault, only ours. Slide14:  We ate everything in sight: cakes, bread, chocolate, ice cream—and yet we stayed skinny because we were always doing something and not just sitting. Slide15:  And if one of us was lucky to find a 1 litre Coca Cola bottle, we all had a swag from it. And guess what—nobody picked up any deadly germs... Slide16:  We did not have Play Stations, MP3, Nintendos, I-Pods, video games, 99 cable TV channels, DVDs, home cinema, mobile phones, home computers, laptops, chat-rooms, Facebook, etc. ... We had REAL friends!!!! Slide17:  We called on friends to come out to play—never rang the doorbell, just went around the back… Slide18:  We loved being let loose in the big world…without bodyguards… Slide19:  We played with sticks and stones, played cowboys and Indians, doctors and nurses, hide and seek, kickball games and others over and over again… Slide20:  When we failed our exams, we were given a second chance by simply repeating the same grade…without having appointments with psychiatrists, psychologists or counselors… Slide21:  We had freedom, success, disappointments and responsibilities... Most of all, we learned to respect others… Slide22:  Are YOU from that generation?? Maybe this message will help you forget the stress that surrounds you these days….and just for a few moments relax and smile as you remember what life was like for many of us in the good old days…… Slide23:  HAVE A SUPER DAY!
