The Difference of Times

I hear quite a bit of "Back in the day" or "When i was your age"

I know... They were married and having children and working on the farms and in the vineyards of Transylvania. I am nothing but a city girl. I so not live on a farm, or anywhere near one for what matter.

So, when they were my age and back about 50 years ago, things were different. I can see how much by how the "I don't remember" happen less frequently for me than for my parents, aunts or uncles.

Transylvania of the Saxons, the one they talk about is almost dead. There are few who live there and even fewer who want to go back.

The times are different yes, but in the process the past is forgotten.
