My Entire Childhood.
45 rpm spindles,
Metal Ice cube trays
Shooting 22 rifles off the back step, (neighbors didn't care the 22 was a gun kids played with)
Carrying a new knife to school to show the teacher. (try that today)
Drive in Movies Drive in restaurants
Driving around with a rifle in the back window of your truck.
The Fuller Brush Man
Reel-To-Reel tape recorders
Tinkertoys Erector Sets Lincoln Logs
15 cent hamburgers
5 cent packs of baseball cards
25 cent a gallon gasoline
Jiffy Pop popcorn
5 cent stamps
Gum wrapper chains
Speedy Alka-Seltzer Cigarettes for Christmas
Burma Shave signs
TV Test patterns
Timmy and Lassie
Aluminum Christmas Trees (but they were very tacky)
I am sure I forgot some. Maybe you can remember some others.
If you can remember most or all of these,Then you have lived And if some or all of these are unknown to you, I'm so sorry! You missed out on the "good stuff"! Life was a lot better back then.
Now I want to cry.
