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?

What a hoot to see the picture of  us hiding under our desks.  South Louisiana was pretty close to Cuba.

I know we all had go-go boots (from Hulla bullu and Shindig). How about the John Romaine pocketbooks, troll dolls. Wearing rubber bands around the top of your knee socks so they stayed up. I remember when I was little and I wore a slip with my dresses. If the slip stuck out at the bottom beyond my dress my mom would tell me to raise my arms and she would tie a string around my waste to inch up my slip a little. I remember when the first hand held hair drier came out to dry your hair, otherwise it was sitting under the hair dryer waiting forever to dry. Icee's (like Slurpies) but had the polar bear and you saved points off of the cup. Going to the drug store for a soda and drinking out of paper straws. I would always flatten mine and nothing would come out. High beam button on the floor of the car and wing windows. I sure do miss those. Those long stocking hats that went halfway down your back. Oh I just love going back.

Every time I read one of these posts, memories come flooding back.  Too much fun.

Remembe Skee Ball, and juke boxes that actually had records in them.  Come to mention it, remember records? Those 45s that you could buy for a dollar, and it would have the hit song as well as the B side (sometimes the B sides were better than the A sides).  They had those little yellow inserts so they could be played on the HiFi.  Remember when you had to get up off the couch to change the tv channel?
