Oh what a fun bunch of posts to read. I remember all that stuff. I also remember going to country school. All 8 grades in one room. There were 3 people in my class until I went to town school in the 5th grade.

Here's another oldie but goody.....rubbing cocoa butter all over ourselves to get a tan. My got we must have nearly cooked ourselves.

Getting up and walking across the living room to change the channel or adjust the rabbit ears (and maybe using aluminum foil to bring in that third network channel.)

Reel to reel tape players, then cassette players in the cars, then metal decks.

The little plastic inserts so your 45 record could be played on the 33 1/3 spindle.

AM radio stations that dimmed their power or went off the air at night.

Safety suckers with the looped string to hold onto so you were less likely to choke.

Taking the polio vaccine in sugar cubes - after you had already had the shot.

Red Ball Jets, P F Flyers, and Keds were the names of sneakers or gym shoes. No running shoes etc

Patent leather Mary Janes.

When wearing white sox wasn't cool.

Boys with duck ass hairstyles.

Using a comb to put a crease into your jeans.

Pall Malls rolled up in tee shirt sleeves.

DippityDo and SunIn for girls' hair products.

Pink curlers with snap on covers that left crimps in your hair.

Going to Woolworth's and Kresge's on Saturdays to shop and eating at the lunch counter.

Having a good winter coat, and one good party dress.

Moms & wives wearing housecoats & aprons.

Those 8 oz Coke bottles with the city it was made in on the bottom so you could collect them (until you couldn't resist turning them in for the 2 cents to buy penny candy)

Chocolate dipped soft serve cones - for 10 cents.

Raleigh cigarettes with coupons on each pack - or by the carton to get bonus coupons

Cigarette holders - black with sparkling crystals

Long before punk, old ladies with grey white hair using pink or blue hair rinses. Some even matched their poodles!

Watching these TV shows: Fury, My Friend Flicka, Sky King, Captain Kangaroo, Romper Room, Bonanza, The Defenders, Perry Mason, The Millionaire, The Edge of Night, The Jetsons, and Yogi Bear - in prime time no less. And Ma & Pa Kettle movies.

"Granny and Grandpa are more important than you"

It's difficult for young children, because they still reckon to be the centre of their world.
But teenagers nowadays could definitely do with a more than timely reminder of their place in the greater order!

You folks reminded me of Bill Haley and the Comets (Rock Around the Clock) and a few other things. I had a huge collection of paperdolls and added to the wardrobe by fitting the dolls to catalog (Sears, Wards, and Penneys) and magazine fashions. I looked at a poor and expensive excuse for paperdolls today at Barnes & Noble. And paperdolls could be anyone: The Lennon Sisters, Shirley Temple, bridal, Broadway musical characters, Annie Oakley, and on & on.

Wall phone in the kitchen (where everyone could hear) and 1 bedroom or familyroom extension where little siblings could listen and giggle or parents could interrupt and tell you to get of the phone. Now you have to program everything into a cell phone but they put parental security program into tv sets.

Booking a hotel for a few nights - before Internet.

Younger son mentioned this to me the other night - didn't know how folk managed before internet, which he'd just been using to sort out transport and accommodation fir a group of them to attend a national competition in a couple of months.
I replied that we wrote a letter or used the phone,
Yes, he said, but how did you find a hotel?
I used to send for a tourist brochure for the area - then I could browse at leisure, compare several on the same page, and list the places i'd contact.
Oh, right! was the confused reply emoticon

Going out to play and having to come home at dark. Not having a cellphone and your parents didn't panic, cause they knew you were safe with friends.

If you have the choice to sit it out or dance: I hope you'll dance!!

No indoor plumbing. Water was pumped by hand in the kitchen and baths were in a metal tub in the kitchen with water heated on the wood burning stove. Other bathroom needs were attended to in the outhouse in the back! emoticon

I remember gas for 19 cents a gallon, 10 cent Saturday double matinees with cartoons between, penny candy, candy cigarettes, sitting around and listening to The Shadow Knows, the Green Hornet and other radio shows, our first stereo, our first color tv that dad swore we would never be getting, old metal Tonka trucks, kids could go anywhere and be safe, we still have a soda fountain at the museum, ducktails on the boys, cigarettes rolled up in their sleeves, Christmas lights and decorations strung up across the streets in town and the street lights only at the corner posts, having to wear dresses to school cause pants were not allowed, party lines on your telephones and only 4 digit phone numbers, kids not wearing bike helmets and surviving, going swimming in the old water hole, hand me down scratchy fabric dresses, getting swats at school (though I never got any), sock hops, dancing with distance between boys and girls, not knowing or caring what anyones sexual preferences were, oh to be so innocent again about things. Thinking presidents were great people!!!

If you have the choice to sit it out or dance: I hope you'll dance!!

I remember, from visits to my grandparents in Alabama, vendors who came to the back door: the milkman, the Watkins man, the Fuller Brush man, the fruit and vegetable truck, the old lady and her grandchildren who brought freshly picked wild blackberries in a wheelbarrow and sold them by the sugar scoop. My grandmother never drove a car but lots of people came to you back then instead of making you go to them. I also remember ice from the icehouse, made from spring water, crystal clear and sweet as sugar.

I love the description of the fireless cooker... it sounds like the perfect slow cooker!!
I remember our milkman delivered the milk not to a box on the porch, but came in and put it in the fridge... the one with a "freezer" that held two ice trays total.

The fireless cooker, I can remember my great grandmother heating the round stones on the stove top. Then putting the one stone in the bottom of the cabenet and placing food on it then putting another stone on the top rack and going off to work all day. When she got home dinner was ready. kind of like our slow cookers. but without the use of electricity.
