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

    hi from my end of the world

    never wore shoes all summer, coke was 10 cents, Rode waxed brown board down huge sand dunes, gathered shellfish at load tide , fished at dusk, Checked the set nets before dawn to beat the pelicans .Soft serve ice,cream trucks once a week. Fried fish and chips on fridays .Never owned a pair of long pants till i was 10. Played baseball rather than cricket .There you go baseball in Australia in the 1970's . Fireworks ,penny bangers and rockets, gee we use to get into trouble. Set rabbit traps in back of the dunes. Threw rocks a deadly black tiger snakes. Swim, run, fight and the day was never long enough. Theres a film about where i lived as a kid . "Storm Boy" No far from fact.

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

    Saturday movie matinees with double feaqture, two cartoons and a serial. Mom would give me 50 cents and it would buy my ticket, popcorn and candy bar with a soda pop and a dime to call home to come and pick me up! Bottled pop was a nickel 'cept if you took the bottle with you and that was two cents extra. And yes picking up pop bottles along the road to sell back for candy money. A dollar would buy ten giant packs of black cats around the 4th of July. And a cherry bomb would blow a tin can to pieces as well as a finger or two if you weren't careful. A one dip icecream cone for a nickel, two for a dime and 20 cent shakes and malts. (I worked in a dairy store when I was 13 years old). Usually ate up my pay check before the week was out even with my discount. Gas wars, 22 cents a gallon for regular. Drive in movies where nefarious trysts were reported to have happened. (But I knew nothing about that)! wink, wink! Friday night teen town dances after the football games and lining up to dance with the "hot" girls. Riding your bike with a BB gun escort due to that bad dog down the street. Brylcreem , a little dab would never do you cause it got the girl's fingers greasy. Ducktail haircuts. Sneaking out dad's work car when they went to dinner and driving it around the block a few times.
    Being grounded. Being grounded, Being ...oh well I said that didn't I? Going over to John's house to sneak out his Dad's Playboys so we could "read the articles". My first car a 1950 Ford 2dr Cpe with a '53 Merc flat head V-8, two two barrel carbs with an Offenhauser manifold. A chevy killer for sure! My first taste of Falstaff, the choisest product of the brewers art. After all it was recommended by Dizzy Dean and Peewee on the game of the week. Puking up my first taste of Falstaff after 4 beers and swearing to quit forever! And a thousand more I could name. Monty

    The Theater in our town had shows only on Friday & Saturday. One of the candies that we bought was Necco's, I believe was the name, kind of a fizzie tablet that came in a tube. The tube was what we were after. You could make a lot of sound affects with that tube sitting down towards the front of the theater. Sitting down there allowed you plenty of warning that the usher was coming our way to check out the noisy kids down front................Great days!..........

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



    Listening to Tarzan on my Grandmothers battery radio on Saturday nights, I rode my pony to her house , about two miles, (crossing a river) on the way & spending the night with her while her Son was in town chasing girls, :P
    I was about six or seven at the time.
    Driving the hay truck when I could barely see over the dash, they put it in 'compound', & let me go, while the men loaded it.
    Lying in the barn loft eating dried peanuts, (drying on the vine that we raised), listening to the rain on the tin roof, & smelling the sweet feed the cows were munching below in their stalls.

    Gotta stop now (getting teary-eyed & nostalgic), what some days we lived through.

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

    Looks like the responses have covered about 3 generations with a brand new one working now! Some of those things are older than me if that is possible, and some are brand new from my early adult years. Radio for me was The Lone Ranger (early Clayton Moore, what a voice), Dick Tracy, Clyde Beaty the lion tamer, Of course Amos 'N Andy, The Shadow, and a few more. TV was just coming into its own and radio was fading fast in my youth, 1950s. Remember the tri-color plastic stick on that went on top of your black and white tube giving the illusion of color TV? The late night Rock and/or Roll "filthy music", ( or so the pastor said).Your first kiss, dating, and running the bases, or at least trying to. Of course when you met up with your buddies after taking the sweet thing home first base was told as a home run! Girls who everyone said they would, but never did. Ah, but sex was a very hot topic even though many of us now think of it as something better not discussed. Going steady, ring on a string, romances and breakups, the most important thing in the world at the time until you met another fair maiden in the process. Movies.....,Blackboard Jungle, Rebel Without a Cause, Splendor in the Grass, Thunder Road, , and the many naughty paperback books with the dog eared and well worn pages clearly marked! The ladies foundations section of the Sears and Roebuck Catalog that some black hearted parent tore out of the catalog out in the outhouse! Dang, I am sounding like a pervert, but all the guys use to talk about it. But funny as it seems now it was darn serious back then. Monty

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

    I remember cigaretts for $0.23. In a machine, they were a quarter, but there were three new penny,s in the celephane package for change.
    My first car: A 1949 Kaiser
    Gasoline was normally a quarter except during gas wars, then 17 cents.
    .22 shorts were 15 cents or two for a quarter

    The local cafe sold & closed about ten years ago. No one had any keys for the doors. They hadn't been locked since 1923.

    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!!

    Girls didn't get boob-jobs, they wore "falsies".
    Guys didn't use Viagra.......didn't have to, girls looked great with their falsies.
