I figured it was time to add to this.....................   Shocked Shocked Shocked

Do you remember when...............

All the girls had ugly gym uniforms

It took five minutes for the TV warm up?

Nearly everyone's Mom was at home when the kids got home from school?

Nobody owned a purebred dog?

When a quarter was a decent allowance?

You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny?

Your Mom wore nylons that came in two pieces?

All your male teachers wore neckties and female teachers had their hair done every day and wore high heels?

You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time? And you didn't pay for air? And, you got trading stamps to boot?

Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box?

It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents?

They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed. . . and they did?

When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car...to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races, and people went steady?

No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked?

Lying on your back in the grass with your friends?
and saying things like, 'That cloud looks like a... '?

Playing baseball with no adults to help kids with the rules of the game?

Stuff from the store came without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger?

And with all our progress, don't you just wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savor the slower pace? Share it with the children of today.

When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited the student at home?

Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat.

Send this on to someone who can still remember Nancy Drew , the Hardy?
Boys, Laurel and Hardy, Howdy Dowdy and the Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, The Shadow Knows,Nellie Bell , Roy and Dale , Trigger and Buttermilk.

As well as summers filled with bike rides, baseball games, Hula Hoops, bowling and visits to the pool, and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar.

Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say, 'Yeah, I remember that'?


I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a double dog dare to post it. To remember what a double dog dare is, read on. And remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care.

How many of these do you remember?
Candy cigarettes

Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water inside.

Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles.

Coffee shops with tableside jukeboxes.

Blackjack, Clove and Teaberry chewing gum.

Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers.

Newsreels before the movie.

P.F. Fliers.

Telephone numbers with a word prefix...( Raymond 4-601). Party lines.

Peashooters.

Howdy Dowdy.

Hi-Fi's & 45 RPM records.

78 RPM records!

Green Stamps.

Mimeograph paper.

The Fort Apache Play Set.

Do you remember a time when...

Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, 'Do Over!'?

'Race issue' meant arguing about who ran the fastest?

Catching the fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening?

It wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best Friends'?

The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was 'cooties'?

Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a slingshot?

Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute commercials for action figures?

'Oly-oly-oxen-free' made perfect sense?

Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles?

The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team?

War was a card game?

Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?

Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable aspirin?

Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?

If you can remember most or all of these, then you have lived!!!!!!!

This was great!  Thanks for posting it.  Our number when I was a kid was Emerson 3-6119!  I still remember it!

I remember those kind of phone numbers. In fact we had an old crank type phone and a party line that included the majority of the town. There is no way that I could remember it. I even have trouble remembering the one I've got now.   Tongue Tongue Tongue

YES - I remember those times with fondness and many times wish that we could go back in time. It was definitely a time of greater morals and innocence. Things were pretty uncomplicated.

Lying on your back in the grass with your friends?
and saying things like, 'That cloud looks like a... '?

YES, I remember doing this many times. It was really an awesome thing gazing into the sky, looking at the stars at night, and KNOWING WHO MADE IT ALL. I also remember saving for a long time and buying a small telescope. The world that can't be seen with the naked eye is just as interesting, so I eventually saved enough to also buy a small microscope. Things like this were fascinating.

Did anyone else spend some time in looking for a four-leaf clover? YES - I did.  Wink

I remember all the rest of it too. By the way, I got in trouble with the water-balloons.

We also had that party line, and we knew ahead of time when someone might need it worse than we did. We knew all of our neighbors, when they were sick, when someone was about to have a baby, etc., etc. By the way,  (E) for Elgin - 2305.

We all had chores to do for mom, and I had my first part-time job at the age of 8. Discipline was heavy, and I needed every bit of it.   Grin

THANKS for a nice trip down memory lane!

More to remember...........

Metal ice cubes trays with levers

Mimeograph paper

Beanie and Cecil

Roller-skate keys

Cork pop guns

Drive ins

Studebakers

Washtub wringers

The Fuller Brush Man

Tinkertoys

Erector Sets

The Fort Apache Play Set

Lincoln Logs

15 cent McDonald hamburgers

5 cent packs of baseball cards, with that awful pink slab of bubble gum

Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"?

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "Do Over!"?

"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest?

Catching the fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening?

It wasn't odd to have two or three "Best Friends"?

The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was "cooties"?

Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a slingshot?

A foot of snow was a dream come true?

Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute commercials for action figures?

"Oly-oly-oxen-free" made perfect sense?

Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles?

The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team?

Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?

Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable aspirin?

Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?

The National Anthem was played and we all stood, hands on our heart, as the curtains opened before the NewsReel and the first movie, The Three Stooges.  Grin

Tarzan, Jungle Jim, Tom Mix, Gene Autry, Wild Bill Hickok, Errol Flynn, The Lone Ranger, Sky King, The Invisible Man, Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff.

It was magic when Dad would "remove" his thumb.

Feeling the unrelenting love and warmth that comes from hugging a fuzzy puppy while it happily licks your face away...and all you can do is just laugh.

YES, Brother Bob, I remember them all quite well, but I go back a little bit further. We got in trouble for slingshots, so we used our imaginations on an arsenal of various weapons. Most of them were pretty innocent - like pea-shooters, clothes-pin launchers, spit-wads, rubber-bands, etc. It was fairly easy to get away with it if you could keep from laughing. YES - I got caught from laughing several times. I really had to stop because I rarely got anything done without being caught. I did have very strict parents and decided that I wanted to live.   Grin

Spit wads! Target ... clock front of room. The person furthest away from the bullseye got pelted with an onslaught of spit wads by all the others.   Cheesy Cheesy

I only used a pea shooter once. I almost didn't survive that one. I used my Dad's peas he had set aside for planting the next spring.  Embarrassed Tongue Besides that the school changed the straws to the kind that had the crinkles in them for bending them. They didn't make as good a pea shooter.
