Let's see, so far we've reminisced about dittos, drive in theaters, lick-a-stick candy, five-and-dime stores, Donny Osmond, Dark Shadows, what have I missed?

MT, I had not looked in here for a while, but as far as your last post...yes, I carry around those candy bar jingles in my head too. The other day, I was singing this one, "Goobers are delicious peanuts covered in chocolate, Raisinettes are covered in chocolate too...Goobers & Raisinettes, Goobers & Raisinettes!

Hope this thread can come out of its dormancy. I am getting old now and it needs the memories of some new middle-aged minds.

Sorry to see that this thread hasn't had any activity since I last posted something. Are there competing memory threads now, or are memories not a thing anymore???

I have to ask for help with an obscure memory today. I am a soccer fan (avidly enjoying World Cup right now) and I happened to mention that a long time ago, when Pele was a huge phenom in soccer, he was on the cover of one of the bigger magazines, like Time, Newsweek, maybe S.I., only it was not Pele's face...it was Pele's (almost life-size) THIGH. Wahaha, that was hilarious; but now, I tried to find the image of it and came up with nothing. I know it is very random, but can anyone else recall seeing that?

I don’t remember that image but I do recall what a big name Pele was. I also remember athletes like Mark Spitz and Bruce Jenner. That was a lifetime ago.

I don't know if it was ever a magazine cover, but one picture of Pele that I remember is a bicycle kick when he played for the NY Cosmos. Here is the link.

Sorry Eli - I don't know about soccer.

As for the thread - it's just this darn site is so hard to deal with. By the time we get here through the convoluted mess, half of the fun is gone.

But today I got to demonstrate how to move a Nike Missile to it's launch position. They were superseded in the 1970s, but some of you may remember.
