On the Cusp of 50 (or 200+ in Dog Years) by Kim Muratore
A humorous, semi-autobiographical look back over changes in society, women's roles, and technology in the home and workplace during the past 50 years. Whatever happened to the home delivery milkman? How did you function at work before computers, voicemail, or copy machines? How much trivia do you remember from your childhood? If you are 50 years or older, reading this book will cause you to smile and exclaim: "I remember that!" If you are younger than fifty, you'll be amazed that people could (and did) function in a world where cartoons were only shown on Saturday mornings, your t.v. only had four channels and was black-and-white (no color), and a gas station attendant pumped your gas (there was no self-serve) This book is a must-read for anyone interested in how life in America has changed for better or worse over the past half century, as told through a series of short stories.
