I don't miss the glass bottles. I grew up in the 50s and 60s and
remember all the broken glass. It was everywhere. People tossed pop
bottles out their car windows, kids smashed bottles for fun.
I recently started watching Mad Men. I have been getting the discs from
the library and watching them in order,since I never watched it when it
was being televised. It is interesting to see the old stereotypes; the
male executives hitting on all the secretaries, the secretaries looking
for marriage prospects, everyone smoking everywhere. Last night we saw
the episode where the Draper family went for a picnic in Don's new
Cadillac. Don finishes his beer and hurls the can away. When Betsy folds
up the picnic blanket she just shakes off all the garbage and leaves it
on the ground.
