I remember getting my first blow dryer, colored tv, air conditioner (we slept under attic fans), listening to 3 dog night on 8 track. Life was a lot slower then, we played outside, came in only to eat. At night we chased lightning bugs and put them in mason jars.

I think I am older than you. I remember those things, but I remember things further back as well--like seeing Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show, Kennedy's assignation. The bad part about the old skinny jeans is that they didn't stretch!

Hope is the high; dread is the low; life is the stuff in between! -- Medium

"There is no such thing as destiny, only different choices. Some choices are easy. Some aren't. Those are the important one; the ones that define us as people." Quote from the movie 23.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: �What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.�� (C.S. Lewis)

Do you remember acid washed skinny jeans with zippers on the ankle? (the first time around, that is!)

Having to get up off the couch to change a TV channel, bucket seats in cars being a luxury, the sound of dial up internet (still out there), car phones, vinyl albums and record players, jeans being too casual to wear outside of the house on a regular basis, a can of soda costing $0.20, bell bottoms, and obese children being a a rarity.

I remember choosing to stay with my parent's friends so I could watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in color for the first time ever rather than going out to get the family Christmas tree; laying on the floor in front of our black and white TV with my sister watching the Mickey Mouse Club; going to the downtown variety store where they had a whole counter full of penny candy choices; going to the movie and it cost $.35 for kids to get in; when gasoline cost less than forty cents a gallon; when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon; seeing "grown-ups" drop and smash their cigarette butts on the grocery store floor; when cigarette commercials were on TV; singing along with the screen at a Shakey's Pizza Parlor; the original trolls; when "These Boots are Made for Walking" was first popular.......

I still have my metal roller skates.
I remember you could get a side order of mashed potatoes and gravy for 50 cents at the local restaurant. Sure tasted good when it was cold outside. It was our go to meal at lunch break when I was in high school. The other was a little place we called Grams where you could get for $1.25 a sloppy joe,chips and a pop.

Keep the faith.

If at first you don't succeed...try try try again

I recall watching the movie E.T. during its premiere week. Had to sit in the 2nd row because the theatre was so packed. People clapped at the end of the movie, which very rarely happens these days.

also when I was young, I had metal roller skates you could hook to your tennis shoes and turn the key thingie to tighten them. If you hit a big bump, the scates would come off and you would go flying and crash. I still have scars from those things.
