#14 You remember buying gas for $.14/9, getting full service, green stamps, and a nice glass just for filling up.

Actually, I miss that being on the floor.

Its getting harder for me to get my foot up to the steering column.
Great one!

And don't forget to starter on the floor next to the accelerator. It was a real trick do the starter, brake and clutch at the same time when you were parked on a hill and no emergency brake.

...if you remember when electricity was first brought to your community! I do, and I remember thinking those linemen were superheros! My dad worked in a machine shop and he made me a set of "gaffs" that I strapped on my legs with old belts and climbed every tree around there!

I didn't walk to school but I did ride a horse to the four room school house I attended grades one through eight. Yes, there was a bus but it was a two hour drive or a 15 minute ride. Easy decision.

And when the President was on ALL THREE channels for the 'State Of The Union' speech.

And you wanted to watch The Red Skelton Show or Dragnet.

Oh, I forgot....

Watching the Fugitive, Vic Morrow on Combat, Gunsmoke, 77 Sunset Strip, etc in black and white when grandpa finally got a TV.

When they first aired Outer Limits and cut the last scene because the monster was supposed to be too scary. They had so many complaints, they had to show it later in the evening when all the kiddies were supposed to be in bed.
