The Good Old Days

Do you remember the good old days? Well I sure do!
If your memory needs a little nudge, some of these things will
take you right back, and I hope bring a smile to your face!

Pick up the phone and you heard, "Number please?"

And you said, "Randolph 4- 3381."

Sometimes you picked up the phone and heard voices!
Remember those party lines! We shared the lines!
You had to remember your ring before you
answered the phone, one long, two short!

Playing tag and hide and go seek on a summer evening.

Catching lightening bugs in a jar.
Sometimes we pinched off the glowing end and
put it on our finger for a glorious glowing ring!
(I feel so guilty! How could we do that!)

Wringer washers! What work that was,
and then if you didn't get your arm caught
in the wringer you had to lug a basket of wet
clothes to the back yard and hang them on the line.

Sprinkle bottles...remember how we had to sprinkle
down the clothes after they dried and roll them up tight
and put them back in the basket? Then came the
hard part! We ironed everything! Then came steam
irons and we threw out the sprinkle bottle.

Do you remember any of these:
Window fans, Kick the Can, roller skates with keys,
coonskin caps, hula hoops, 45 records,
cherry cokes, juke boxes, pony tails, bobbi sox,
penny loafers, sideburns, Breck & Halo Shampoo,
drive in movies, jacks, going home for lunch,
marbles, monopoly, rabbit ears, aluminum glasses,
sweater sets, white gloves, and can can slips,
the smell of Old Spice, penny candy, and
Mother May I.

See The USA In Your Chevrolet

You'll wonder where the yellow went
if you brush your teeth with Pepsodent.

Step on a crack...break your mother's back.
(I still don't step on cracks)

Red Rover, Red Rover, won't you come over.

Pepsi-cola hits the spot,
12 full ounces that's a lot.
Twice as much for a nickel too
Pepsi Cola is the drink for you.

Hi! I'm Buster Brown, I live in a shoe!
That's my dog Tige, and he lives there too!

it's a gif

Everything changes and nothing stays the same and no one really knows why and thats why when every new generation gets older they think the good old days were when they were young,but yesterdays gone and tomorrow never knows and so all that really matters is here and now...

Party lines were the original chat rooms. They existed when I was very young, but by the time I had anything important to say they had faded away.
Thank god. chuckle.gif

Quote:Most people can recall the simple delight of popping bubble wrap or kicking up piles of autumn leaves when they were a child.

But far from growing out of these childhood treats, new research reveals almost a third of parents still enjoy these basic pastimes.

Favourite childhood activities that grown-ups still love include licking out the cake mix bowl, kicking leaves up in the air, popping bubble wrap or building a snowman.
