Dino Days

When I was about five years old our family lived in a house up a long lane. Several poles were needed to connect the power to the house, so we didn't have power for a few years. This was not uncommon in rural Nova Scotia in the early 1950s.

When my grandson, Adam, was about five or six year old, I told him that when I was his age we didn't have electricity yet, to which he asked me, "Were there dinosaurs on the earth then?". I quickly replied, "Yes, I had some for pets!"

He is now thirty-five and from time to time I remind him that I am so old that dinosaurs were around when I was young.
