I remember Klick Klacks too! I remember I got a pair and thought they were pretty fun and how disappointed I was when my mom took them away from me because she had heard they were dangerous. I remember being mad at her at the time, but she didn't care. I guess sometimes Moms have to be cruel to be kind! :)

I just read a ton of these memories and I remember them all....I guess I'm older than I think, but on the bright side, just think of all the wonderful things that today's young people never even heard about. Old ain't so bad from that angle.

Klick Klacks. They were two glass balls hung from strings that met in the middle and when you moved your hand up and down real fast, the glass balls klicked and klacked together, when they did glass would chip from the balls. No kidding. Mine were green. In retrospect I can't believe this was a kids toy.

And the first moon landing. We watched it in school on a black and white tv.

And cars being broken into to steal the 8 track tape players.

And smoking in grocery stores.

Dang I am old.

No remote for the TV...no phone for your car...no such thing as a VCR.

Playing outside until the street lights came on, rotary phones, 8 track tapes, playing hopscotch, Chinese jumprope, no remote controls, taping songs off the radio, Casey Kasem's top 40, 45's, having a milkman, wearing knee high socks, getting one pair of new shoes every fall when school would start and thinking that was a big deal--I remember lots of these things. Just getting old, I guess!

In my home town we had a butcher shop with the saw dust on the floor and a 5 and 10 store. I remember going to a soda fountain before they were retro. I remember when you could use a pay phone in a telephone booth.

I remember rotary phones. I saw a toy rotary phone at Target and thought, "My nieces wouldn't know what to do with that."

I remember when the tv channels would go off at night.

I remember taping songs off the radio.

Our party line phone. There were 7 kids in my house, so whoever had to share with us certainly hated their setup! And, we had 3 TV stations that all went off air after Johnny Carson (and the National Anthem playing to a picture of a waving flag).

Remember the skates you put on over your shoes and that if you didn't pull the strap over your foot tightly when you crashed the toe of your shoe was still firmly attached to the skate.(Ok I admit it I still have my skates)
