Small Town Living at Its Best

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

Vintage Thingie Thursday - Final Day for "If this Secretary could talk"!

Well, here I am, my last little bit of history to give you. There have been so many changes through the years.
The computer is one of the main modes of communication these days, with cell phones being a close second, and mail being a FAR 3rd.
Eye glasses are used less, with most people using contact lenses or even laser surgery for eye correction needs.
Music, that was once only able to be shared through a record player, then tape players, and now CD or on the computer, as changed as much as anything else. The records that we played in the 50's and on, are now available for download on our computers. Where there were 10 songs or so available on a 33rpm back then, the IPOD can hold thousands, and is as small as a pack of Dentyne gum was back then.
Photos, that were once very rare, are now available in all shapes and sizes, color or black and white. They are taken with cameras that can store thousands, or print on the spot. They are found on telephones, computers, electronic frames, and many, many other places. Note from Sandi: Thanks for stopping by for this last installment of "If this Secretary Could Talk". It's been fun to look back through the years and see the changes that have occurred.

If you are interested in previous posts, there are 3 of them. Early 1900's is here, the 1950's is found here, and the 1970's is here.

Thanks for joining me as I join Colorado Lady and other Vintage posts, as found below.


  1. I enjoyed my walk down memory lane. I can relate to all of this. I worked all my life and used a lot of these things.

  2. I've so enjoyed your posts from your Secretary, so much fun to look back and remember.

    Wishing you the merriest of Christmases and much joy in 2011!

  3. What a fun post! I'm glad I stopped by! It's incredible how many changes there have been through the years ... and even though I have most of the "new" things, I'm still holding on to some of the "old" as well!

    Have a lovely week!
