Here's one:

At work the other day, one of the younguns (she's 21, I'm 28) had asked me if I had ever watched the show the Osbornes. I said yeah, I have. She then says, "well what happened to Donnie and Marie? Weren't they part of that family?"

Carol, I remember when cigarettes were well under 50 cents a pack. /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Oh, I guess I shouldn't have admitted that. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I remember when, McDonalds had coffee stir'ers. Back then they weren't used for that and they re-designed them.

I remember when, a piece was a gun.

I remember when, baggies with a daygo T was cool to wear. Along with black socks and dress shoes. Score in my hair and mom had Dipidy Do.

I remember when, there were Greasers, Climb'ers then Hippies.

I remember when, a drive by, meant just that.

I remember when, you got a letter that smelled of perfume.

I remember when, Coca-Cola had cocaine in it.

I remember when, we all would crowd around peering through the window of a restaurant watching Johnny Weismiller eat.

I remember when, cars were $3000. NEW.

Can't believe how times fly.

Man, you guys are young!! I had a membership card for the circle four ranch, the badge and the ring! Tap danced on the Ted Mack Show, and the original Steel Pier in Atlantic City! I remember when "Four on the Floor" meant you had a fast car with a floor shift! When Dixie Cups had pictures of Hop Along Cassidy on the back of the cardboard tops. When you were only allowed to wear slacks to school one day a year for the class may day, and jeans were something that farmers wore! Gay meant you were in a good mood, heavy metel was in salvage yeads! Going steady meant you could kiss at the end of a date, and people got dressed up to walk the boardwalk in the evenings. All the drugs were sold in Pharmacys, where you could get addicted to cherry cokes, a nickel each, and baggy pants were worn by kids who weren't cool! A bee hive was a hair do, and the only Spider man was a grandaddy long legs. Drinking booze was what the boys did, and the only news man was John Cameron Swazy /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif. Seemless stockings were new in fashion, and blue suade bombers with clips were "It" for the boys /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif. All sentences, directed to adults, that ended in yes or no, were followed by Mam or Sir, and Doctors smoked while writing out your prescription! /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif In the shoe store, you stood on an e-ray machine and looked through the little window to see if your shoes were too tight, and you never wore your loafers without the penny, /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gifand it had to be shiney. Women switched from bobby pins to rollers, and there was "Something about an Auqua Velva Man /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif." Angora sweaters, torreador slacks, Oxfords and bobby socks, /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gifthree pair rolled down, bermuda shorts, Brill Cream, knee knockers, fake fur sweater collars with big fur balls at the end of the tie strings /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif, feather earrings, pop beads, car hops, big hawaiian drinking glasses, Nancy Drew, Mr Wiggley, Johnny Ray, cats eye sun glasses, cats eye marbles, Weebles, Story Book dolls, Tiny Tears, Halo Shampoo, I can still smell it! Funny thing is, when my daughter was about five, we were watching a western, the covered wagons were rolling fast into a circle to prepare for the indian attack, and she says, "Mom, were those wagons comfortable when you were a little girl?"
Gayle in Md. Still think the late forties, fifties and early sixties were great! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Hey woman! Boy, I sure miss you too Carol. I was going to play in Rockville, but we had relatives from out of town, kind of unexpected guests. Wish we could have gotten together! If you don't get over here the next time you come to Maryland, I'm gonna be mad! Gotta get together, had so much to talk to you about! Say hi to that nice husband of yours, Jim! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
