You know your old if you can identify most of the tools hanging from the ceiling at Cracker Barrel, and have used some of them.

Delivering newspapers on a frigid winter morning and seeing the cardboard caps pushed up about an inch by the milk/cream freezing.

If you remember when the "rich folks" down the road bought the first TV in the community, and every night all the neighbors went to their house to watch a station 150 miles away that faded in and out constantly!

Yup, get under the school desk and close your eyes, like that would help.

Yeah, but it gave us something to do besides sitting there wetting ourselves waiting for the shoe to drop.

WE purchased our Margarine at the store and once home had to add our own color and knead it in ourselves to make it look like butter.
Our indoor bathroom had to be carried outside in the morning and be dumped into the two wholer by the oldest boy every day. (me)
The ice for our icebox was always cut out of the cattle water trough during the winter and our meat was either stored in the cellar and called Salt pork or the butchered beef was stored in town at the butcher shop.
The phone was hanging on the wall and our ring was two long and three short, the other 8 on the party line led secret lives that all 8 of us knew all about!
Our milk came from the barn and the cream was separated by Mom and the butter was churned by 8 kids shaken in a quart bottle and passed around when tired while we all sat around the counsel radio listening to Amos and Andy. The next day Mom would make cottage cheese and cure it by hanging it over the outdoor clothes line in old socks!

Wow, I didn't no two of "us" existed! Really thought all of us of that era were gone. Same here but my great grandfathers outhouse only was a one holer. No butchered beef stored only fresh couple times a year, just ham from the smoke house. Guess we were uptown the ice man came around once a week from the metropolis of Johnson City, Tennessee. The wagon was pulled by two mules. Remember the Fuller Brush man? Great time in America!

If you can remember storing your milk in a glass jar in the spring house beside your floating eggs

After reading Larry's (post 234) and Clay's (post 235) I think that maybe they are Michael Landon in disguise.

When we lived waay out in the country the "rolling store" came around once a week. It was an old converted school bus stocked with everything imaginable that country folks could need such as flour, meal, sugar, pots and pans, hair brushes, and best of all, CANDY! We all knew the sound of his horn blowing way down the road giving us time to get out there!
