I saw this term in a post down below, my grandpa always talked about the good ole days. Grandpa's family came back to Topeka from Quinter, Kansas sometime in the mid to late 20's before the market crash. Grandpa was born in Topeka in 1928, when he and his brother were in high school in the mid 40's they would go back to Quinter in the summer to work for his cousins. His good ole days were driving to Quinter in far western Kansas from Topeka in a model T Ford and spending his summers checking cattle with Babe, one of the horses on the farm and working ground with a one way on an H Farmall all night. Just a memory, I miss him, he'll be gone 13 years next week.

My grandpa was born in 1917, died 2008. Always said, "I want some one to tell what is so great about the good old days. Forget that, these are the good days." He was referring to the 1960-90s.

He had many stories of how hard the work was with the horses, etc. No electricity, candles, ice boxes, etc. They lost the farm during the depression due to a fire, burnt all the out buildings. No insurance so they lost the farm. He still helped on my great grandpas farm with the AC WC and a 2 bottom plow on 80 acres that took forever to plow.

He was in amazement over my NH3930, it was the fanciest tractor in the world to him. With a telescoping 3 point, 4 wheel drive. To him there was nothing that tractor couldnt do.

My Grandpa has been gone for 25 years now. He retired from farming before I was born (1967) so I never was around his farm. When he would come and visit I remember him reading the farm magazines and commenting on the size of the "new" farm equipment. I wish he was around now and could see the stuff their farming with now. He would be amazed for sure.
