When you remember the picture of the Indian that came on when the TV stations shut off for the night so you could adjust the vertical and horizontal on your set.

And divided shopping between double and triple stamp days at stores with S&H Green Stamps and Blue Chip Stamps and you spent time gazing at the catalogs of both...

You remember being given $.50 to ride a bike to the gas station, fill up the gallon gas can and mow the lawn.
Oh wait, we are headed there again!

When Gunsmoke was on the radio and Matt Dillon was played by William Conrad.

Damn, I miss that. Radio was much better than TV because you had to imagine so much more. It would be hard to convince kids of today of that.

If you remember doing chores by the light of a kerosene lantern and milking cows by hand.
