Keeping Up With the Times

 Sometimes Old Alice's mid-century origins are very apparent...

Old Alice: It sounds like the Soviet Union is up to no good again.
Anthony: Actually, the country's name is Russia.

Old Alice: Oh, is that what they call themselves now?
I suppose that was Khrushchev's idea.  Hmph.

Anthony: Putin.

Old Alice: What's he putting?

Anthony: Uh, do you ever watch the news, Alice?
Old Alice: You mean the newsreel shorts in the showhouse before the movie starts?
Anthony: No, on television.

Do you mean to say that thing actually caught on?

Oh dear I think Anthony will have to try and bring old Alice up to date with the new-fangled technology, it may that him a while!
