...prayers in public school: we always said grace before snack in kindergarten.

...watching the original Star Trek the first time around, not in later syndication.

...long car trips in the summer with the windows down because we had no air conditioning in the Rambler. No seat belts, either.

Having to turn on the TV a good 5 minutes before the program started so that the TV could warm up. If you turned it on right when the show began, you'd miss the beginning while waiting for that.
I don't miss that.

Driving over a heavy cord that dinged when the car hit it to alert the gas station attendant who sold gas for 35 cents per gallon, checked the tire pressure, oil, and cleaned the windows. That was truly full service, wasn't it?
