I remember when my parents had to blow a whistle to get us to come in for dinner and then blow it again to get us to come in before bed. Also catching lightening bugs and riding our bikes and tv dinners were a treat only when our parents went out for the night. I miss those days and tried to raise my children this way. I am glad that I live in a neighborhood that feels the same way I do. My children are well adjusted because of that! Age 16 and 29!

emoticon I remember when you were on the road and needed the talk to someone you pulled over and used the nearest pay phone or used your CB radio. I teach middle school and was talking about pay phones and the students looked at me like I was from Mars! emoticon

I remember when I didn't ache every morning when I got out of bed. I remember when I could run without worrying about leaking in my panties. I remember when I would walk for miles - for fun.

I remember hooking my hose to some sort of girdle with hooks. I was excited when pantyhose was invented so that I could stop wearing the girdle thing. It was hot and uncomfortable!

I'm sorry to see that this thread has just fizzled out. Surely we can remember a LOT more!
Let me see... I remember getting new shoes for school and Mom wouldn't let me wear them until school actually started emoticon

I remember my girlfriend and I did these hand gestures to the song "Beep Beep". Remember that? It began with "While riding in my cadillac, what to my surprise. A little Nash Rambler was following me, about 1/3 my size..."

Girl Scout cookies went up in price from 75 cents a box to a dollar. All the neighbors were shocked and I had a hard time selling them that year. Now they are $3.50 a box...

Oh its a tv show on the tip of my tongue...she'd look through the mirrow and say "I see Tommy" and "I see Alice...' Was it Romper Room?

I remember going out to play in the afternoons and all day on Saturday with my friends. We'd roam all over the neighborhood and neither we nor our parents ever thought we were in any danger!

Oh, and the Mickey Mouse Club Show on TVemoticon
