A Veryvery Late Friday Five

Singing Owl from Revgals writes:

Yesterday I had two separate conversations in which people were musing about how much change is occurring. The WW II generation, of which my mom is a part, went from horse and buggy to automobiles, saw the lessening, or even the end of many diseases, went from widespread use of kerosene lamps and outhouses (in the country, and most folks were rural)) to a totally electrified and plumbed society. The fastest means of communication was a telegraph. The second conversation--gulp--was about MY generation and how much change occurred in the last half of the 20th century. The person said his 13 year old had not seen a vinyl record album until a few days before, couldn't remember a time without cell phones, and on and on.
As for the questions!

1. What modern convenience/invention could you absolutely, positively not live
without? GoG's skooshy bed. It has water in it or something. But you can't see the water, or feel it. But I don't care, cuz it's a grrrrrrrrrreat place to sleep.

2. What modern convenience/invention do you wish had never seen the light of day?
Why? The Electric Dust Suckers. They are eeeeeeevil... they chase me all over the house...

3. Do you own a music-playing device older than a CD player? More than one? If
so, do you use it (them)?
No... I'm a cat... I just listen to the Talky Box or GoG's laptop. (the picture is the Talky Box)

4. Do you find the rapid change in our world exciting, scary, a mix...or
something else?
I dunno... A mix I guess. I don't follow the changes of the big world. I just concentrate on my kingdom in my house.

5. What did our forebears have that we have lost and you'd like to regain? Bonus points if you have a suggestion of how to begin that process.
LEAVING KITTEHS ALONE WHEN THEY DON'T WANT TO BE TOUCHED!! NO matter how many times I tell GoG to let me down, she just won't leave a poor kitteh alone...
