In grade school, if I forgot my lunch sack I went hungry that day. I was amazed when I began my HS freshman year, there was a cafeteria, I could buy lunch__if I remembered my lunch money.If I didn't have enough money, I walked 6 blocks to Spriggs Creamery and bought a chocolate shake for a quarter.

Yep, remember all of them. I even remember using the RC Cola bottle while ironing. Anyone remember starching shirts, rolling them up and storing in fridge till you got to them to iron?

I might be older than dirt but those memories are some of the best parts of my life.

Oven heated bricks at the foot of the bed at grandma's house

Mom handmade our play clothes

The best though was every Saturday, I'd sit in the back seat of the car at the bank and watch mom and dad figure out the budget for the week to determine how much cash to take out. They had cash envelopes before Dave Ramsey.

I fit the older than dirt gang. I lived on center Island in Toronto when I was real young and helped the iceman deliver ice to real iceboxes. Moby dick was a minnow back then.

Yep, I remember being quite distressed when they stopped selling 78RPM records and had only the 45's available. We didn't have a 45 player. Just couldn't believe that they would take those away.........................

I remember my Dad saying the same thing. Also "those 45 records are just for hippies like you". ( I had long hair back then) I just wish I had hair now!

DW has always said that she invented dirt, because God invented little boys.

It is truly an amazing world. According to the questions, I am older than dirt yet when I retired two years ago I was working on bleeding edge new technology.

Some of the first TVs I saw has small round screens but today I can view videos and computer screens in a micro-display that I that's running off a wearable computer system smaller than most cel phones.

The first color TV show I saw was Bonanza and its picture quality was fuzzy with bleached out colors. Today I can display and watch 3D holographic images and interact with virtual figures and objects through augmented reality.

I makes me wonder what my grand daughter will see throughout her lifetime.
