Imagine these sisters - born in the 1860's - listening to the miracle of radio on a Sunday afternoon.

My maternal grandmother was born in 1887, and used to tell me ,"we live in such wonderful times". Sh thought her recliner, her color tv, and her aluminum Christmas tree (with color wheel) were truly the most wonderful things one could own. I believe she was right! 😉

I’m in my 70s (born in the 40s) & have lived thru the advent of commercial TV, frozen food, microwave ovens, home computers, moon landings, fall of the British Empire & Soviet Union, cheap airfares & cellphones. I’m now looking forward to electric cars & renewable energy for everybody. Amazing!

I think of my great grandmother, born in Kentucky in 1863, listening to baseball games on the radio in Brooklyn in the 1920's. Amazing.
