Nostalgia is all around us. Back when I was a kid Ford Mustang was only $2,500.00 today it is made out of thin sheet metal and plastic and cost upwards of $90,000 for some models. Man those were the good old days. Nostalgia is so big in America that we bought a bridge in London, shipped it across the Atlantic Ocean, trucked it to Lake Havasu city, then reconstructed it there. Hopefully, the bridge was well known in London one would expect, as it is called the London bridge. Perhaps London has too many residents, and they are counting on these residents traveling to the United States to satisfy their Nostalgia for the bridge. Lastly the hope of the folks there is that the Londoners who traveled to the U.S to visit this old relic would just move to the U.S. to save future travel expense. Not real sure, but it could be working, there are lots of folks in the area with English accents complaining about U.S. Driving laws and Californians.
We like Lake Havasu, and the best place to visit the lake is at the London Bridge visitors center where the beach is only about a half hour walk. Holly, John, Amy, Sophia, and the boys took a ride with us in the Van to visit this rather new piece of American history, if not just plain escapist Americana.
Rollingshoebox.com has decided to ask the question are things better today that yesterday. In the 1950’s we lived under the threat of nuclear war. Our greatest enemy at the time in my opinion is not nuclear war, but the nuclear testing. The United States detonated many nuclear bombs in Nevada with people in Las Vegas and Mt Charleston in the cat bird seat watching the tests. Then we blew the Bikini Islands to hell, and they are still unusable today. I would assert the toxins from these blasts are still circulating in the atmosphere today causing cancers in humans world wide.
Today, the world still fears nuclear war, and more testing is being done.
Global News network states Trump is actually expecting a beautiful vase, but if it’s Missiles Trump says he is ready for that to, and it will be very expensive to Mr. Kim Jong-un. Really it appears the whole problem is Trump call Kim Rocket man and Kim does not like to be referred to as rocketman, and Kim has a better name to call Trump!
Nostalgia of Comedy
We have heard all of our lives that from the generations ahead of us, T.V. was not dirty in my day. Everything was clean and wholesome. So like the was thing we decided to see what changed. We picked out the the Don Knots show in 1970, and Saturday Night live for a quick comparison.
Based on my observations, humanity will remain humanity. Nothing is new, Nothing at all.
Well, it’s been fun. If your reading this, Kim did not kill us on Christmas. If this is all too serious, just spend time with Fluffy. He has something in common with us. He rides around in the country in a bus.
