Happy Birthday, Grandpa!

My father-in-law turns 60 today.  As a present, we made him a video, in which my kids try to contemplate what life was like in 1950:

A few things to notice:

I recently took Jeffrey to a special viewing of the Charlie Chaplin film Shoulder Arms.  Hence, his description of film in 1950 is of a silent film.

Eleanor is under the impression that life in 1950 is more like life in 1850.

Poor William — look at what happens to him right around 0:20.  I’ve never seen such a patient, mellow kid.
