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

    When I was about 10 years old in the 1960's I was down in the creek with my brother looking for empty coke bottles. We hit the jackpot! We found three wooden crates stacked up on each other hidden in the bushes. Each crate had about 24 bottles in them! We endend up with several dollars each after redeeming them at the store! For two kids without any money that was a big day!

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

    Yup, I remember them all, Scott.

    I recall gas at 29.9.

    We'd put $4 worth in the 57 Chev and party all night.

    I see where somebody has his old BB gun. I still have mine. I won it in a local hardware store drawing back in 1957. Within a week I got into trouble with it and dad took it away for 2 years.

    In the mid 60's one could get a factory job for $4-$10 an hour with no skills or experience. It just came down to how hard one wanted to work. Jobs were everywhere and a new American made car was like $3,000. Very nice smaller starter houses were $8,000 to $12,000 with only 10% down.

    Today young people are lucky to find a full time job with some decent benefits. I know of people with teaching degrees who can only get part time work at $8 an hour. They work at a local paint store.

    Things sure have changed.

    Good post MB.
    In those days during and after WWII people were devoted to a cause.
    Everyone here in America wanted to help Americans.
    We were one people, Americans.
    Most had come from other countries but we were united in being Americans.

    Everyone tried their best to do what they could.
    To help this country.
    Because we felt we were ONE Nation, under God.

    Now jobs go offshore because it's cheaper.
    With slave labor.

    'Nuff said.

    Good post!

    People are working day and night to alter what the Founding Fathers said and wrote. There was a time when their good points were emphasized and their weaknesses overlooked. Today the opposite is all the rage.

    Today people have been led to believe our founders were godless hypocrites. Some were brave and brilliant but even they were greedy with corrupt motives to some degree. That's what young people are being taught today.

    Our founders understood that without morality a nation will die. When people live only for themselves and their lusts they are doomed to extinction.

    Our enemies (you name it) have been working hard for decades to corrupt us morally because they know it's the only way to bring us down. Our "music," video games, "education," and all media has been designed to program us all to follow the Pied Piper of doom. Rebellion, cheating, unfaithfulness, self-indulgence, you name it.

    What we see in America today is exactly what destroyed countless civilizations before us. They didn't listen and neither will Americans. History repeats itself.

    I mostly just joke around on the forums because I don't think there is any hope for this country (the country our Founding Fathers built). One might as well get a few laughs while one can.

    I remember...
    School:

    Saying the Pledge of Allegiance every morning with my hand over my heart.
    Paddlings (Was no angel )
    Tornado, fire and end of the world drills. ("Duck and Cover!")

    I had my own chair outside of the Principal's Office...
    I never got suspended but could be frequently found in "Detention Hall."

    Best,

    Not to get off topic, just an interesting article about who makes your iPhones and iPads.

    Foxconn, a company that builds iPhones and iPads — among other techy items, employs more than 400,000 people in a factory where they sit silently for a standard shift of 12 hours. Rooms are filled with 20,000 to 30,000 workers and talking is prohibited, Foxconn employees said in an interview with Mike Daisey, a monologist and author. Cameras watch every move of the assembly line. Employees work, eat and live in the factory, staying in 12-by-12 cement rooms that house 15 beds

    I remember...
    Schoolcon't)

    I remember Teachers and Principals who recognized my hidden potentials and encouraged me.
    I remember classmates ostracizing me and the "Bullying" that I endured.
    Most of all, I remember my Mom's acceptance of my abilities and nurturing them.

    It is all a part of what leads me to be who I am today.

    My Best,
    Scott

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

    I Remember...
    Siblings:

    I have one Sister, 18 months older than me. The rivalries that occurred were typical.

    I commandeered her "Easy Bake Oven," a Christmas present that she got when I was about 8 years old. She took control of my Tonka Truck. Fair enough.

    I learned how to pick the lock on her diary and read juicy details of her current boyfriend and utilized these revelations to my advantge by negotiating transfer of selected items of her record albums to my collection.
    Some might consider this to be "blackmail."
    I saw it as "leveraged negotiations"....this was when I was about 12 years old.


    Once this alleged activity was disclosed to my parents, a lock was installed on my Sister's bedroom door. . .
    Took me about 15 minutes to figure out how breach this obstacle. Today, I'm a Locksmith.
    I learned. Yes, I learned to not disclose the basis or source of my knowledge.


    Kinda wish I had a brother or two...nothing like a coupla good ole fistfights to bring brothers close....

    Best,
    Scott

    He tackled and hog tied her , then stuffed her behind the couch before the guy showed up . Her screams for help brought my response of ,"I told ya so "
    Guy showed up and introduced himself and his intention to take my daughter out . I splained to him that he was welcome here and could take her on the date as soon as he got her from behind the couch and untied her Coulda knocked his eyeballs off with a stick .

    I remember:
    Adolescent "Love."

    I remember asking out a girl to go roller skating when I was about 12.
    Being rejected but still went roller skating alone....

    Hormones, a new and unknown player in the game has just made your opinions of the opposite sex re-consider how you view others. Their desires and goals...your desires and goals.

    Trying to determine the fine line of the difference between Love and Lust.

    My God, what fury (ignorance) have I unleashed by this previous post?

    It clearly shows that I can remember when computers were as big as the whole room!

    Please excuse this "Techno-Age 'Old Timer'" and I promise that I'll try to keep up....{dang...how would I fix that last post?}

    I give up! Hands in the air, total defeat, I give up.

    All of this linking, copy and paste, and all of this other computer techno crap makes me pine more for the mountains and a simpler life....
    A'hem...

    But y'all can follow along with my feelings, right?

    I Remember...

    Songs and Music:

    I remember sneaking under the covers at night in bed when I should have been asleep, instead listening to the Saint Louis Cardinal baseball games on an early AM/FM transistor radio. (1960's)
    I remember Pat Boone.
    I remember the Four Seasons.
    I remember music BEFORE Disco!!

    Post your songs and what they mean to you!
