Nostalgia, Remember these

Recommended Posts

I could go the the movies for $2.00.

 

.75 to get in.

 

The rest covered a huge buttered popcorn and big soda.

Winning wasn’t wrong!

Wanting to win was expected.

Doing your best meant you didn’t just participate!

Ice skating on public ponds.

Stick ball in the street!

Pilfering a watermelon.

Getting caught pilfering a watermelon!!

Getting your butt busted by any neighborhood mom!!

Getting your butt busted again when you got home ‘cause some other mom had to bust your butt!!

Why do they still label gas as "unleaded" when probably 90% of drivers today never filled a tank of leaded gas. Or Ethyl for that matter.

Roads that were made with some kind of tar and the sharpest rocks they could find imbedded in it.

 

Fishing from shore or seawall without getting hassled by the cops or property owners.

 

Being able to go into a locally owned hardware store that had knowledgeable employees.

 

$1.50 a carload light at the drive in.

 

Movies that had intermission.

 

Creature Feature on Channel 44 UHF

 

Wide World of Sports skier crash.

That road repair technique was called stone seal, there was also sand seal. Gad that tar did a job on your car sometimes.

PF Flyers are still being made.

 

The brand, originally owned by BF Goodrich, now belongs to New Balance.

 

And boy howdy are they expensive.

The other day I was thinking about those TV tube testers they had at most drug stores. If your TV quit working, you'd take off the back pull out all the tubes take them down to the store, and find out which one didn't work. There was a selection of new tubes there and you'd buy the one you need, go home and fix your TV.
