How Old is Grandpa?


One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events. 

The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general. The grandfather replied, “Well, let me think a minute. I was born before...
  • television
  • penicillin 
  • polio shots
  • frozen foods
  • Xerox
  • contact lenses
  • Frisbees 
  • credit cards
  • laser beams 
  • ball-point pens
  • Pizza Hut
  • McDonald’s
  • instant coffee
  • pantyhose
  • air conditioners
  • dishwashers
  • clothes dryers
  • and space travel.”
He continued, “When I was a boy, ice cream cones and Pepsis were a nickel. A nickel would buy enough stamps to mail a letter and two postcards. You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600 and gas was 11 cents a gallon.”
You probably think this is a very old man. If so, you are in for a shock! This man would be only 69 years old.
“For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” James 4:14
