Default Re: remember when....

Penny candy could be bought for a penny, 2 cents for a tootsie roll pop

Your mom sent you outside to play with your friends and say don't come home til lunch or dark, and she didn't worry you were gonna get stolen or mugged or worse

Red Skeleton, Disney's Wonderful World, Ed Sullivan - that was entertainment

If you wanted to do research you went to the library

I remember 24 cents a gallon for gas

My first car cost me $7.00 to register and only needed a safety inspection - no such thing as smog, that was the stuff they only had in LA

if you wanted to heat something up you used a stove no such thing as a microwave

The coffee pot percolated

and one of my dad's favorites - he says he remembers the days when ships were made of wood and men were made of steel
