Stories from the Olden Days by William P. Robertson

Stories from the Olden Days

Reviewed by Book Bug

– My Description –
When wise people talk of “The Good Old Days”, they refer to times gone by. (Anytime before 1990 is good with me. Before things went to hell.)

William Robertson recounts memories from his childhood in the 1950’s and 1960’s. William was born in 1950 in a small town in Pennsylvania. Everyone knew each other. No one was a stranger. Everyone was a friend.

William was your typical boy. He wasn’t happy unless he was getting into trouble. That is always fun, especially in “The Good Old Days.”

“The Good Old Days” were a special time. This being before political correctness became the norm.

When hamburgers were 15 cents, and going to the movie theater didn’t cost an arm and a leg. When children played marbles instead of shooting their classmates with a gun. When children could actually play with a toy gun. Bang-Bang. When children played hopscotch instead of selling drugs on the street corner.

Pure bliss. If only to go back in time….

– My Review –
I love anything to do with anything before 1990. The nostalgia gets me every time. So, I was excited to start this read.

My Mom was lucky enough to be born in 1948. She tells me stories of her childhood. Sweet stories of childhood games and even sweeter stories about my Grandparents and Great Grandparents. She saw The Blob in the movie theater. King Kong scared her something awful. I tease her about things, like “They had that back then??” We both get a kick out of it.

I enjoyed getting a glimpse into William’s childhood. I only wish he had put something in a epilogue to what happened to him after high school.

Thanks William for a trip down your memory lane. 😉
