Okay, I long for the 25-cents-a-gallon gasoline, the shoe cobbler, and the ,
but I lived on a farm and we raised goats. The milk was delivered in
stainless steel buckets by my Mom and it was warm. The knives, hatchets,
scythe, chain saw chains, axes, and chisels were sharpened by my Dad...and
no matter if we were good or bad, my older brother and I had to clean the
barns and weed the garden.

I've grown up to hate lawn mowing unless the mower is self-propelled. I use
both land-line and cell phones to keep in contact with my clients. We have
several desktops and a new laptop, a new HD-LCD TV and home theater. My
Epson R1800 is working overtime to keep up with a demand for my photographs
and the bushel baskets of fresh organic corn and green beans are screaming
at us to find them a home in the freezer.

Personally, I like Deteriorata, a parody of Desiderata that appeared on an
old LP titled "A Child's Garden of Grass" in the 1970s.
