SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
The youth of today think they know it all. Maybe not
The "Green" Thing...
out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady
that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are
not good for the environment.
The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, "We didn't have
this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."
young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did
not care enough to save our environment for future generations."
older lady said that she was right -- our generation didn't have the
"green thing" in its day. The older lady went on to explain:
then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the
store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and
sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and
over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the "green
thing" back in our day.
Grocery stores bagged our groceries in
brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable
besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book
covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property
(the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our
scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown
paper bags. But, too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back
walked up stairs because we didn't have an escalator in every store and
office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a
300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.
But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.
then we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw away
kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine
burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes
back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from
brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.
But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in
then we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room.
And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember
them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen
we blended and stirred most things by hand because we didn't have
electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile
item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion
it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up
an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower
that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to
go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.
But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.
drank from a fountain (or hose, as kids) when we were thirsty instead
of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water.
We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we
replaced the blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor
just because the blade got dull.
But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.
then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to
school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi
service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole
house did before the"green thing." We had one electrical
in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances.
And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed
from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest
But isn't it sad the current generation laments
how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green
thing" back then?
Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson
in conservation from a smart ass young person.
don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to
really make us angry... especially from a tattooed, lazy, pimple faced,
pizza eating, entitled, multiple pierced smart-butt who can't make
change without the cash register telling them how much.

Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek
your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who
call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost
our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited
the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and
called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We
have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected
to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have
abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's
Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with
profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have
ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it
enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us
from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's
help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become
our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
