Waxing Nostalgic

At 68 years of age, while I appreciate all the technological and other wonders that I have and am experiencing, I do wax nostalgic at times of things that I miss like those listed below:

Major league pitchers who throw complete games

Basketball players who don’t take games off

Two way football players who play offense and defense

News that only comes on between 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. No breaking news every commercial break

Civil political discussion shows like Firing Line with William F. Buckley

Women without tattoos or nose rings

Swanson TV dinners

Quality local newspapers and local community reporting

Competitive heavyweight boxing

Cuff links

Pocket watches

The convenience of transistor radios

Gino Giants

Bosco

Wall St Week with Louis Rukeyser

Phillies Hot Pants Patrol

GE College Bowl

Comic books

Vaughn Meader

Big 5 Basketball doubleheaders at The Palestra

Doctors who made house calls

Calls to businesses answered by a person

People shaking hands
