    Party no. but one or two friends yeah but the parents would have to know. bottom line. my dad did it.

  2. Joy says:

    Yes Jason, we did let you guys have friends over and did let you drink but you stayed put. Nobody left the house. Things were also really different then. A cop could see you had to much to drink and offered to follow you home. Things have really changed as far as alcohol is involved.

    This is great. I love it. Things really have changed where drinking is concerned. Our parents let us drink and it was never an issue but now parents can be sued so I wouldn’t do it now unless I had everyone’s keys.

    Great pics of the 50’s perfect wife 🙂

    This reminds me of my grandma. I love that tray of drinks. Great one Joy. Things have changed. Hate to say it, makes me sound like I’m getting old but I can see they really are. It’s impossible now to go out for a few drinks without having to worry about how many drinks you’ve had.

    I just like the fun of it though Joy and I can see the humor you saw in it.

    I remember back when I was 15, I was going out with this girl from Northfeild where my mom lived and her older sister had just graduated from high school. Her mom allowed her to have a party and supplied alcohol and plenty of it. But everyone stayed there, and like Joy said it was different back then. P.S. I was way too young to be drinking, I puked my guts out on my girlfriends steps for about a half an hour. You couldn’t do that now a days,things are just way different.

    This is just brilliant, I can so see it being published as well phew there were some goldies in the “Golden” days. Remind me to forward you an extract from a British text book telling young girls the do’s and don’ts within marriage!

    My kids are older now but I never would have let them have a drinking party. I did let them drink when they were underage with a few friends who spent the night. When I was 18 it was legal drinking age. Its a totally different world nowdays.

  8. Joy says:

    Yes Sanity, please do.

  9. Paul says:

    Yes I did do it for my kids but today it is different. You can’t do it anymore the laws have changed.

    I would not supply alcohol for a party. Offering my kids a drink at home, probably; with other friends there…I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it!

    I really dont know what I would say or do, I have a teenage sister, that a few friends are fine, but I really do not think I will let my own children, who knows that will most likely be so busy in sports that they are not going to have the time to party any how. I will be very strict when it comes to the TEENAGE years.

    You can’t even let kids have a few friends over and leave alcohol in the house now. Its crossing a line and you can be jailed and fined over it. It costs thousands in lawyer fees and your reputation. I did some things as a kid i’m not exactly proud of and a friend of mine (an older friend) was punished for them.. She didnt “supply” us with the alcohol but it was in the house and the law was bent and used against her and she spent time in jail and thousands in lawyer fees..

    Just in keeping with honesty, I really just thought this ad in the paper was funny. I didn’t expect this many responses. It was pure humor. Weekends have been slow and I hate to put in a good post only to have nobody read it so I thought this would do for today. So, I am very surprised at the response to it. So relax, I’m not preaching to anyone.

  14. SanityFound says:

    It still surprises me but humour always seems to get people talking if not laughing out loud rolling on the floor gripping their sides… you had me in stiches today!

    I thought it it was hilarious!! I’ll probably let Bailey drink a few with us but when it comes to friends… too many risks. I’m not sure what I’ll do when that time comes. I’m sure it will be even more riskier in 8-10 years. We’ll see. Funny though Joy!!!:)

    My response would be more like “come over here so I can kick your butt.”
