I was at Hornbacher's a few months ago in the check-out line. While checking out I was face to face with a young lady with an earring in her nose and a pearl in her tongue. The person putting my items in the bag had an earring in his eyebrow. Both were very happy and professional. I will say I was perplexed.

I am a product of the 50s where wearing jeans with holes in them to school just meant you were poor and that is all you had. I will admit I was among those saying "What is this generation coming to?" Boy did I get it wrong. It is said the people that fought World War II for us were the greatest generation. My dad fought then and I have a hunch if he was living would just say "It is time to step aside for the next great generation."

So, this old '50s guy has new respect for this generation and what they are doing right now.

So, thank you.
