Those Were the Days


Aaaah… Desi and Lucy, I like Ike buttons, Goldwater Girls, The Honeymooners, All in the Family, Route 66, The Brady Bunch, The Monkeys, Lawrence Welk, Hazel, Poodle skirts, saddle shoes, Coke floats, drive-in movies, and Barbie dolls.

Ever get dreamy just thinking about the good old days?  You know, when things were better than they are today?   Well, a friend of mine just sent me an email with a bunch of pic attachments. I could hardly believe what I was looking at.

What a load of sexist crap women had to put up with back in the day.

Ah, the ironing of it all.

We’ve come a long way, baby!
