I forgot about the guy once a summer that would come up the alley's and sharpen scissors, knives, lawn mower blades, anything. Also when I was pumping gas in High School it was 30.9 cents a gallon and you got a glass for a fill up. That's after I checked the oil and the air in the tires.

I got all 25 by personal experience, Papers on my route were only 25c per week and I kept a 5c of that. Delivered milk in glass bottles. Put 25c in the cigarette machine and got a penny change back inside the celephane wrapper. I could run my 55 Buick Special all weekend on $2.00 in gas.

Black Jack Gum

If you don't remember Black Jack, how about Beeman's, Clove or Teaberry gum (do the Teaberry Shuffle, anyone?)

A little local grocery a block from my Grandparents' house had a penny gumball machine with a few striped gumballs in it. If you got one of them, you could trade it for a nickel candy bar...they lasted through 3 generations of the owner's family before closing it. A small grocery near the house where I grew up had a live parrot in a cage above one of the shelving units. You won't see THAT any more...

At our local corner grocery store, when we went in for shopping, we just had them add it to the tab until payday. They knew everyone by name and everyone in town knew each other.

When I was just a kid we went to the theater in town every Saturday afternoon to see Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, The Lone Ranger, etc. When we started dating we graduated to the drive-in theater. Ever go to a drive-in theater with three or four kids stuffed in the trunk?

I forgot about the trunk(lol) @ the Drive in
I went to the grand opening of a Drive in Theater, Carmen the Nurse was the Lead in a 1920ish car. She took over the Local TV (Blk& white) show after Clancy The Cop Died, if I remember it right it was a spin off of the Mickey Mouse Tv show.
a 10 Sty Bldg sits there nowAnd the last one I know of around the city's closed and they are building a Walmart there now.

Yup, and it wasn't me in the trunk. The other kids all had small sport cars but, my parents made me dive a old Impala 4 door. It was embarrassing most times but, for Drive In's it worked out because I had the biggest car and could get the most people in it. So I got to drive and we crammed other kids into the trunk.

The just opened up a new drive in near me a couple of years ago. I haven't been there yet but, I talked to the owner and he said now they have a low power FM station that they use for the sound. I bet that is a lot better then the stupid squeaky speakers we had to hang on the window when I was young. Link to the Drive - In below

There was a drive in in a nearby town that as most, was having a hard time surviving. There last effort was to show porn movies. Bussiness picked up considerably then one day it was gone, bulldozed. I ask a local what happened to the old drive in and was told the farmer that had the dairy farm complained that his cows quit giving milk and bought the drive in.

Lots of folks drove off with those speakers still hanging in the window! I think the drive-in owners considered replacing missing speakers a normal operating expense!

25 out of 25 plus the rest put forth by the members.
We have a drive in about 25 miles from here that is open in summer. It tried the Porn thing for a couple years then went back to regular movies.
I remember taking a quarter to the store, A nickel for the pop machine was the old chest style, Hires rootbeer in a glass bottle. A Big Hunk and a look Bar and a dime change.

My Sister would get told to babysit me, She is about 6 years older than me. She would get me in the bed room and sit on me until I would have an asthema attack then get let to go play.

Remember- All the things we have now were introduced fairly quickly....take a look back:

Subject: HOW OLD IS GRANDMA?

















How old is Grandma?





(Read this to the end-- quite an eye opener.)













k



Stay with this -- the answer is at the end... It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother
About current events.





The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought
About the shootings at schools, the computer age, and
Just things in general.





The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute,

I was born before:






'
television
'
penicillin
'
polioshots
'
frozenfoods
'
Xerox
'
contactlenses
'
Frisbees and
'
thepill

There were no:







'
creditcards
'
laser beams or
'
ball-pointpens

Man had not
yetinvented:






'
pantyhose
'
air conditioners
'
dishwashers
'
clothes dryers
'
and the clotheswere hung out to dryin the fresh air and
'
man hadn't yetwalked on the moon













Your Grandfather and I got married first, and then lived together.
Every family had a fatherand a mother.




Until I was 25, I called every manolder than me, "Sir."




And after I turned 25, I still calledpolicemen and every man
With
a title, "Sir."




We were before gay-rights,computer-dating, dual careers,daycare centers, and group therapy.




Our lives were governed by the TenCommandments, good judgment, and common sense.




We were taught to know thedifference between right and
Wrong
and to stand up and take responsibilityfor our actions.






Serving your country was a privilege; living
in this country was
A bigger privilege.





We thought fast food was what peopleate during Lent.






Having a meaningful relationship
meant getting along with
Your cousins.





Draft dodgers were those who closed frontdoors as the
Evening breeze started.





Time-sharing meant time the familyspent together in the
Evenings
and weekends — not purchasingcondominiums.











We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CD's, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.




We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny,and the President's speeches on our radios.




If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan 'on it, it was junk.





The term 'making out' referred to how
you did on your school exam.




Pizza Hut, McDonald's,and instant coffee were unheard of.




We had 5 &10-cent (5 and dime) stores where youcould actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.




Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar,and a Pepsi were all a nickel.




And if you didn't want to splurge, you couldspend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letterand 2 postcards.




You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600,but who could
Afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.


In my day:






'
"grass"was mowed,
'
"coke" was a cold drink,
'
"pot" was something yourmother cooked in and
'
"rock music" wasyour grandmother's lullaby.
'
"Aids" werehelpers in the Principal's office,
'
"chip" meanta piece of wood,
'
"hardware"was found in a hardware store and.
'
"software" wasn't even a word.















We were the last generation toactually believe that a lady neededa husband to have a baby.





We volunteered to protect our precious country.






No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.




How old do you think I am?




Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.

Are you
ready?????




















































This woman would be only 61 years old.
She would have been born in late 1952.











GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO THINKABOUT.
