How many remember the View-Master It took us to romantic places Like Rome and Paris and Amsterdam Sure put a smile on our faces More than sixty-five years of 3D vacations It still can be purchased today But now geared mainly towards the kiddies No more flying us guys away With the advent of the great world wide web View-Masters became out of date They're like dinosaurs in this high tech world Been pining for those times of late For those less hairy days way back when Been accused of reliving the past But find so much peace and solace there Life was an absolute total blast © Jack Ellison 2013

    The "simple pleasures," are often looked past. I look back and even some of the worst experiences don't seem that bad. I was younger experiencing life go by, but it ran me over. I remember the view master. I had Star Wars and Kiss lol. Nice poem and nice work in general, keeping people smiling.

    Really? My Hubby still has his view master... But our memories of the good old days are always filtered the way we want to see them... But then why not... Their our memories to do with as we please... Perogative of getting older... I had white coated my memories of my Dad... Then I went to help him... and the real memories hit me in the face.... OUCH...
