If You Could Chose One from
 
Hi All! I was thinking how easy things of yesterday used to be, less complicating, somehow missing the less modern things of then.
If you could chose just one thing, ok maybe two...what would it be?? I'll start by saying, I really would love to have and actually use a nice old wringer washer!
I didn't mind the extra work, clothes were cleaner, less water waist and nothing beat clean sheets and towels hanging on the line!! :-D

An automobile (non-computerized) that could be fixed at home by my brothers!

even though is computer is great, i long for the day when folks actually communicated in person or written paper letters :)

smaller roads you could actually walk across. These blvds, and roads that are 5 lanes wide and more make it impossible to walk to the market, even if it is across the street.

I can see the gas station from my driveway, but walking there... I just can't really do it. They turned our 2 lane road into one that is 7 lanes wide. Crossing it, just isn't something I want to do on foot!

I just really miss being able to walk to places. (safely)

Edited TV commercials, no profanity, violence, nudity especially before 9pm.

I used to have a wringer washing machine when my kids were small. My mother in law at the time gave it to me. We had it out in the yard and used the garden hose to fill it up with water and when I needed hot water, we would boil a big huge pot of water a couple of times and fill it up. My daughters used to love to wring the clothes out with the wringer part.

So I would love to not have electricity, no tv, no electronics that way families can once again communicate with each other the way that it was meant to be face to face.

I would like prices to go back to what they were in the 50's!!

Gas stations that had people to fill your tank, wash your windows, check your oil and tires and smile and say thank you for YOUR service when they were done.

A real person on the other line rather than a recording
