    You know your old when "getting lucky" means you found your car in the parking lot.

    Yep... 4...That's what we also got in Brunswick, NY...
    In 58 thru 60, I went to grades 1 & 2 in a two room schoolhouse.
    The teacher of grades 1- 4 used to put PBS on for beginning French
    lessons twice a week (5th & 6th grades were in the OTHER room)...
    With our lunches, we got milk in bottles with cardboard POGS in the top.
    Everybody had to rinse the bottles out after lunch & put em back in the
    milk crate...OLD...

    Don't you guys need to crank up the stove???

    Ok...H & S green stamps..Plaid stamps...I remember Mom would paste the darn things in lil books..probably traded them in for housewares..can't remember what she got!!! You gentlemen are too much.....

    One thing I fondly remember is the wonderful aroma from the Jewish Deli about 25ft before you got there...Boy would I love to have a pastrami sandwich and a beer right about now...Very few places like that today..certainly not in my town...Have to settle for kielbasa....I live near Polish Paradise....

    Thanks Dix,

    I'm trying to remember Diver Dan..maybe just blips on the radar...can't believe I didn't mention Groucho in You Bet Your Life, Queen for a Day, and a long list of game shows....

    Loved Betty White from a child...I will be very sad the day she goes...what a blast from the past...

    I'll admit that I don't remember the show, but it aired in 61
    when my Dad was USAF... We lived in Europe from 60 - 65...
    We didn't HAVE TV as it would have had to be converted to the
    European voltage...
    We watched the Grundig Stereo Console...

    How about soda cans that needed an opener, phones that were on party lines, and when the calculator was a bid deal.

    I still have a slide rule but long before I got that, I remember when I was sick
    one time and mommy kept me home from school, took me grocery shopping
    with her, and bought me a Felix the Cat book.
    I loved you mommy. :-/

    I don't know if it was true or not but when we were kids they said that people would put the pop tops in the can and accidentally swallow them
