Am I an antique?

AM I AN ANTIQUE?

Isn’t it funny when we look back at the past and say, “Those were the best times of my life.” Without telling my age, I will say when I go back to the late ’50s and early ’60s, I think of that era as the best times of my life and they are my “good old days.”

Life seemed like it moved at a much slower pace or did it seem that way because I was younger?

I remember playing with books which had cut-out paper dolls and clothes in them. I would cut out the clothes and fold the tabs around the neck and dress the paper doll. I made doll houses out of cardboard boxes and lived in a world of “pretend.”
