    Yes i remember all those new-fangled things.

    Doesn't mean that young ladies, like LMD for example, wouldn't still find me fascinating.

    Butch wax! For that flat-top.

    pea-shooters----cheap fun!

    Now newsreels at the movies, that was a bit before my time.

    Got my first knife/axe set w/ Green Stamps. or was it Plaid Stamps?

    Wash tub wringers, well my grandmother had one maybe.

    Blackjack Gum, not sure about that one.

    Ah the smell of the mimeograph....

    Seems like I remember someone saying i looked a lot like our milkman....

    Newsreels and phone numbers that begin with a name were a bit before me but I remember everything else. My grandmother did have a wringer washer and a party line(it was fun to listen). Much simpler times.... miss it, I do.

    Of course I remember all of those things. You can still get Blackjack, Beeman's, and Clove Gum through the Vermont Country Store. Butch Wax is still around but under a different name. The was a web site I saw awhile back. There are still a couple of drive in restaurants around here and a big drive in movie theatre up in Auburn. I saw candy cigarettes in a store in Ohio two summers ago.

    I remember that stuff, but we didn't have a party line. There was also a popular tv show (early 60's) about skydiving...every kid in my neighborhood had a parachute with a little plastic figure attached...we'd spend hours chucking those in the air.:spin:
