"Back in the day" by Rikki66

Back in the day before pesticides and preservatives, we judged apples easily. Red or green, Macintosh, Granny Smith or Jonathan. The best-tasting apple was the one without the worm.

Back in the day cars were BIG and shiny with chrome. They were fast and faster. They had fins like sharks, dolphins, and jets. And you could get a beauty for less than three-thousand dollars
