Oh, I remember those darling Steiff bears! My eldest had one in 1948! They were expensive. Well, that's a relative word when my first, custom built home cost $5,000.!  ;D ;D ;D
If you had kept it,it would have been a good investment.They are ever so collectable and fetch high prices.
Oh and if a bear does not look so good anymore they are known as "Well loved bears" so dont discard them. ;)

Yup, my parents were born in the 1800s…horse and buggy. And my dad lived to see a man walk the surface of the moon!My mom wore long dresses and bathing suits that came down to her knees. (With a skirt!)  My mom was a teacher and she was not allowed to teach after she married because it was "improper."

I'm at the age now that I plan on wearing long dresses over my bathing suit....

We have an indoor swimming pool here in this retirement center and water exercise classes. Let me tell you, it isn't pretty.  :(

Been reading posts off and on today. I do love humor. I've used it since I was young as a way to cope. I am glad I found humor. This made me really laugh. I am picturing the same scenario only fast forward say 40-50 years....same picture in my mind but adding all the tattooed seniors!

Hey, Catching Up, how are ya? Good to see you're around.
