Bang!Zoom! Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 The daily paper used to be such a big deal growing up. Very solid routines on who read it first, and how they read it. I peek at my old hometown newspaper online, but it's just not the same. I always read the funnies *first* - then the headlines. Dad always read the headlines first, and then the rest in order. He always read every bit of the sports section, and all the business ads in classifieds. My mother always started with the back page obits and proudly declared, "It's a good day, I'm not in here.." :lol: The Sunday paper, I always got to it first and had to be really careful about keeping it together, in order and clean. (We'd always get fried sour cream powdered doughnuts on Sunday, they were greasy dusty monsters..). If we knew someone closely in the obits, we'd go back out and buy more copies, carefully clip them out and send it with the card. Same thing with any family or friend announcement, it was a nice way to stay in touch. This online jazz just isn't the same. Any of this sound familiar to you guys?
