Here is a pretty cool site:
RC Cola and Tom's Moon Pies! God almighty are you bringing back the old memories! :grin:
I remember my first bicycle weighed in at about 50 LBS and had what would now go for motorcycle tires on it. Also remember my mom cry as we watch Pres. Kennedy's funeral procession in B/W.
First video game I ever played was asteroids and the first game we owned was pong. We played it for hours.
Life seemed simpler then.
and...... Moms stayed home, gas was 0.19per gal,, no welfare, most men worked and people had common sense which is missing these days, every body stood up for Flag and Country even Hollywood, the communist were in the USSR and not in Washington like today, people were more important than animals and people weren't so sensitive, men stood up for the rights of others no matter what and you didn't get sued for straitening out the neighbors kid!
That's to funny.
My daughter was being harassed by a neighbor’s son (single mom). I called her and told her the situation and she said she didn't know how to handle him. I offered to come down and show her and she said she would call the police if I did. I told her if it happened again to have them send the ambulance too because I was going to take someone with me if they came.
I had no more problems from the young man.
It never hurts to instill a little fear to keep kids or parents in line.:grin:
Beautiful women of our time
How many do you remember? Someone did a lot of work on this.
This is really quite amazing. Some aged quite well, others not so well
Need a clearification : old timers, just turne d70 feel like thirty. Just ask the wife.
Better to feel young than get old and crabby.
More Old Music
OKAY, FOLKS THERE WILL BE SOMETHING, SOME SONG, FOR EVERYONE.....HAVE FUN.
My friend sent this e-mail to me and I'm having a blast with it. So kick off your shoes and enjoy a walk down memory lane. I'm listening to the songs of long ago and loving it!!!!
This is "WAY TOOO COOL''
.... and it really works
Its aJuke Box!
Click on any year and a Juke Box pops up with 20 hits of that year!
If you are younger than 30 youare out of luck. NOT REALLY! THERE IS SOME GREAT MUSIC HERE.
25 cents for a gallon of gas!
You must be younger than me I was buying gas for 19cents in High school:lol:
When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning....Uphill... Barefoot...BOTH ways… yadda, yadda, yadda
And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it!
MS]But now that I'm over the ripe old age of forty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia![/FONT][/FONT]
And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've got it!
MS]I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!![/FONT][/FONT]
There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a pen!Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!
Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe!
There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!
Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig?
We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it!
There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOD !!! Think of the horror... not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.
And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent... you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!
We didn't have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! Wehad the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids'. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen... Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!
You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no, what's the world coming to?!?!
There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-finks!
And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!
And our parents told us to stay outside and play... all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside... you were doing chores!
And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were lucky, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place!
See! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1970or any time before![FONT=Comic
Sans MS]The Over 40 Crowd[/FONT][/FONT]
Remember back before cans had pop tops? You had to open your can of Pepsi or dad's beer with the sharp end of a can opener?
I recall our black and white Admiral TV and my dad bought a static film to place on the screen with blue on top, yellow in the middle and green on the bottom... That was our color TV for a while... Then he bought a magnifier that fit about a foot in front of the screen to see the TV program REALLY Big... but you had to be directly in front of the magnifier... LOL...
OLD FART PRIDE
I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old fart receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see. Old Farts are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner (or O Canada ). Old Farts remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
Old Farts remember World War II, Pearl Harbour , Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam .
If you bump into an Old Fart on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Fart on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old Farts trust strangers and are courtly to women.
Old Farts hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
Old Farts get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
Old Farts have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
It's the Old Farts who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.
This country needs Old Farts with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.
We need them now more than ever.
Thank God for Old Farts!
The President stood up for the USA and would never apologize for the Great things she has done and still does for the world (except Carter). The Communist were in the USSR and not in Washington D.C... We had Factories producing for the world, no such thing as Gang bangers or rap except from your dad would rap you across you’re a$$ when you smarted off.. Yep the GOOD OL DAYS!!!!! When Men were Men and Women were Women and didn't want to be the other. We live in an upside down world these days I feel sorry for my Grand Kids if things don't turn around soon.

Burma Shave with the Statler Brothers
You may need to watch it twice; once to watch the Burma shave signs change and once to catch all the pictures plus listening to the music of the Statler Brothers. THIS IS REALLY GREAT.
I am only sending this to my 'older friends' because most folks under 50 would have no idea what I am talking about. 'Too bad they missed it!'
May The Lord Bless You and Keep You!
