I received some boxed sets of old favorite TV shows and I've just about narrowed it down. I figure it began in the early to mid eighties, slowly at first (most ominous things start that way) and building to the grand crescendo we have today.
Now, I'm no stranger to change (I am nearly 84) and I enjoy many aspects of it (change that is), but that doesn't mean I approve of all of it. Such was the case when I saw that dull black vinyl staring back at me as I paused my DVD player during my eureka moment. Just then I saw the future rushing towards us in one solitary product. The first plastic automobile bumper.
Prior to this invention (?), cars did, in fact, have times where they just bumped into each other. Often times, two drivers would tap bumpers, get out of their respective cars, check the damage (or lack of it), find none, shake hands and drive on. These days however, cars can literally break into bits with one low speed encounter.
As I watched, I realised an entire era was slipping away and no-one in my old tv shows had any idea where things were headed.
I miss the old cars with all the chrome, and now I have proof they existed. People say a lot of things from past eras never existed (like small towns with good values) and although I don't have physical proof that they did (I don't need another eureka moment to tell you this), I know it's true - I lived it. Cars also had front door vent windows that actually opened......but that's another moment.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
Griz.
