There was a time…
When patriotism was at an all-time high.
When men were gentlemen and women were ladies.
When movies were thoughtful and classic and intensely well made.
When women wore swishy skirts and gloves and lovely hats and just the right amount of make-up.
When men wore suits and ties and trench coats and fedoras.
When song lyrics actually meant something.
When movie stars were glamorous, debonair, elegant, classy…and not neck-deep in scandal.
And when the world moved at a gentler pace, for all involved.
Maybe those times weren’t perfect. But I still envy the people who lived in them.
