    A Timeline Question

    So I was thinking....

    I remember older relatives (when they were alive) referring to stories from the 20s, the 30s, the 40s and so on when they were younger. I don't remember what they called from 1900 thru 1919. The 0s and the teens? No. That's lame.


    So....
    My question is -
    What did people call those years back then AND what are we suppose to call our years now? 2000-2019...

    WE will be those old dead relatives that our kin will remember so I want some proper verbiage so I can accurately tell my stories. The 20s on up will be easy to label.

    And hurry.... the 20s are about to begin so some of us don't have much time.




    00 - 09 = ?
    10 - 19 = ?

    I remember hearing the word teens when my older relatives were discussing something.

    Was "Aught" something that's said though?

    As a joke in 06 I referred to that year as Aught 6 in honor of one of my favorite rounds the 30-06. So I was doing it right and didn't even even know it.



    When my Great Aunt talked about those years, (1900-1919) she just used a year or "sometime around" a certain year. But I would have remembered her saying aughts and teens.

    Aughts and Teens.... OK. I can do that.

    My Grandpa used the term. I always thought of it as a kind of an old farmer term....and he was an old farmer.

    I've heard the more recent batch referred to as "the naughties". I don't know if they were just trying to be cute.
    Geeking out on ancestry; 17th great grandson of Geoffrey Chaucer, and a bunch of dukes, knights, princesses, kings and stuff. Of course, once you turn over a rock and one king crawls out, you're pretty much infested with them. And what did I tell you? Charlemagne, Holy Roman Emperor, Charles "The Hammer" Martel, and a truckload of others. This is getting better: "The Bonny Earl O'Moray" was an ancestor, and the origin of the term mondegreen: They slew the Earl O'Moray and Lady Mondegreen

    I can't remember anything since the 60's...........
    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.
    Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.
    And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind."
    Major Michael Davis O'Donnell KIA 7 Feb 1978

    My son-in-law has it pegged. Anything before that very moment is "the other day..."

    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous...
