Thoughtful Thursday: the more things change the more they stay the same?!

A humorous look at similarities and differences through the decades (thanks, Francine). Which ones resonate with you? Do any of these induce nostalgia for anyone?! Enjoy. 🙂

  1. I’m hopelessly behind on reading blogs, but I’m grateful for this one, Jane. It was fun and easy to “read.” 🙂 Love the difference in attire for the 1940 man vs. the 2019 one. Ugh! – Marty

  2. Hilarious, Jane! I can relate to many, especially the one with the change in computers 🙂

    Progress ? Sometimes it seems like it’s not such a good thing although I am happy women’s rights have moved past wearing a dress and putting on lip stick before your husband comes home for supper! The lack of exercise is a huge concern. Makes me glad I have so much work to do every day!

    Being of an age that remembers garter belts, gloves and lots of ironing I don’t miss ‘dressing’ for work, school or errands. I personally strive for casual clean and save formality for special occasions.

    Love the humor, even though some of it is a sad reminder of the not so positive changes & things that go BUMP in the night recently. I especially like the progress of women, though, &, like you, Jane, not being expected to wear pearls & heels to prepare a hot dog dinner … LOL I am also grateful that we have been blessed with the ability to see things through humor. It takes the edge off & helps keep us healthy

      Lol. It’s good to be reminded of progress that’s been made among the questionable changes. I couldn’t agree more about needing to have some humour thrown our way from time to time. There’s not nearly enough to laugh at these days.

  6. Lots of changes. Some of them humorous. Others, not so much. My great-grandparents were potato farmers in northern Maine. I can just imagine what their reactions would be if they could see me on my exercise bike each morning, pedaling on the road to nowhere.

    • Jane Fritz says:

      Great example, Laurie. While I’m more than happy not to be expected to wear a dress and pearls every day, we really have taken many things past the extreme as we continue to damage our planet.

      • Yes, and my life, which involves a lot of sitting at the computer, is very different from my great-grandparents’ lives. If I didn’t get some exercise, it would not be good for me.
