    Awesome thread!
    Candy cigarettes, real fire works that exploded and flew, living in the "country" (still live in approximately the same area but now is city/suburbia uugghh), trips to the wood shed, sitting on my dads lap "driving" while he shift gears and braked, I hadn't thought of A&W root beer in ages .
    Thanks for the memories everyone!!

    Re: Do Y'all Remember.....

    Mom would have us go to the store once in a while to pick up a few items. Always liked it when she wanted a couple pounds of hambuger. It was around 50 cents a pound or so back then. My brother and I would stick the burger packs down the front of our pants and then pay for the rest of the items at the checkout counter. When we got outside we would put the burger in the bag, tear up the slip and take what the burger should have cost out of the change. Point being, NO CAMERAS IN THE STORES!!

    They used to have flavored straws. There was a powder in the straw that would make your milk taste "kinda" like a strawberry or chocolate shake.
    They also sold "straws" that were specifically designed to be used as pea-shooters. You would get a straw and a bag of dried peas and use them like a kind of blowgun. Really fun at the theaters.
    Roller skates used to clamp onto your regular shoes and you needed a skate key to tighten/loosen them.

    Bluejeans worn around the outline of a 3-in-1 oil can (that a few squirts from gave extra thump to the Daisey bb gun).
    Weekend bbgun wars involving 25-30 kids . Artillery was cherry bombs fired from sling shots . Hand grenades made from green apples or sun baked clay balls with inch and a half firecrackers stuffed in them . Surprisingly nobody lost an eye

    Well I don't want to repeat all those memories, But since I am older than most, I will through a coulpe you missed, or never saw. I Managed a Spur gas station 2nd shift after school in high school, in the 50's. Gas was .25 a gal and they gave prize cupons. I can remember Kate Smith singing God bless America on the radio during a CD airraid drill. We had to cover the radio with a towl because no lights were allowed during a drill. cie WWII. I remember the claw machines that cost a nickle, I cleaned them out with my coke bottle return money. I remember the first TV. it was 4sq." and had a big magnafier in front of it called the bubble. I remember Howdy Dudy on TV. I remember the serials at the movies on Sat. morning like Rocket Man, the Lone Ranger, the westerns like, Tom Mix, Whip Wilson, Sky King. I remember the Capt. Midnite decoder ring. I saw Abbot and Costello on stage in Balto.I can remember the Japanese Maple tree I was standing under when they announced on the radio that Japan surrendered. I can remember toys like erector sets and tonka toys and lincoln logs. I can remember the hole I burned in the carpet with my chemistry set. Better quit, don't want to fill the server. Frank

    Re: Do Y'all Remember.....

    I remember trying to swat bats out of the air after dark.

    We had a wooden telephone for a while with the wind-up crank on the side and we were on a party line. Don't remember
    how many were on our line, but it depended on the combination of long and short rings for who was supposed to answer.
    Our number was 22 F 22. Two longs and two shorts. That was when I was about 8 years old. We only lived there for a year
    then the other places we lived had no electrical power and no phone until after I was 16 and we moved down to the lower
    peninsula.

    How about about Brill Cream signs on the fence posts along the highway, Like ---Slow down, Pa,
    sakes alive,
    Ma mised signs
    4 and 5.----
    That is the only one I remember off hand.

    Making bows and arrows, sling shots, carving toy guns other toys to play with.

    The car that went around the corner lickety split
    Was a pretty car
    Wasn't it?
    BrylCreem

    Dang there was a dozen of them between here and Grandpa's house on old HWY 99 from Sand Springs to Pawhuska, Oklahoma and that's the only one I can remember. I was in early grade school and learning to read, in oh, about school years 1960/61.I recall laying down in the back window shelf of my dad's rather stylish 1948 Dodge 4 door sedan. My sister was the baby so she got the back seat. She always got car sick and I didn't want to be near here when Mount Vesuvious erreupted as I always knew it would! One stime right on and in my new penny loafers .First they got slick, then sticky, then stiff and then I had to leave them on the front steps instead of bringing them into the house because of the odor!

    Re: Do Y'all Remember.....

    I remember when the creek in Trumansburg, NY flooded. The brick wall of the phone company basement was severely damaged allowing my buddy and I access. Inside were a bunch of boxes all containing BRAND NEW, wooden, crank-type telephones meant to be mounted on walls. We busted one open to see what made them tick. We discovered that they had some very large horseshoe-shaped magnets in them so we proceeded to break open a whole bunch more until we couldn't carry any more magnets. My place in hell will probably be near Hitler's.

    Never used Brylcream but we did use Wildroot hair cream and Vaseline hair tonic. We had an old multi band radio that we could listen to broadcasts from all over the world. It was a huge wooden radio that stood taller than I was as a boy. I think my mother may still have it in her garage or somewhere. We had our favorite Tonka toys and windup crawlers. My dad bought me my first knife when I was 8 years old, a barlow. He bought me my first bb gun when I was 9 years old, a Daisy Red Rider. Got my first bike when I was 6, an American Flyer. I wore the canvas Converse tennis shoes from the time I was 10 until after I got married. I got 2 new pairs every year. Sometimes mom would treat us to candy when we went to the store, we would get the round Maple sugar candy bars. It tasted just like Maple syrup. We also got the necklases you could eat and Mary Janes or Bit O Honey. Grapette and Nehi orange sodas were a treat. I still remmeber when Mr Cola came out, I had never seen a 16 ounce bottle of soda before. There was a young man who worked at the local service station, airing up ties and pumping gas. Us boys pooled our money and bought him a MR Cola, and told him if he could drink it all without stopping, we would buy him another one. He did it, but he layed on the ground gurgling for about 15 minutes afterwards. He didn't want another one. We were not mean, just mischievious. Ahh, the good old days. rockhound
