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?

It was just a picture of a box of Space food Sticks and a old Tang jar.  I remember the sound as you unscrewed the metal lid, and there was a little Tang grit on the jar!  And taking a spoon and popping the paper seal.  A lot easier to break than the super strong ones these days.

DH came in on monday and asked if I knew what Vegemite was.  I asked if he was wondering why I had a jar of it in the fridge.  He said no, just heard someone make a comment about it on TV.

Vegemite and avacado on toast...Mmm

Meece, is it the real Vegemite or the pretend cheesymite?  We are not that far forward thinking nor do we have the funds for a space program, the closest we get is a launching pad at Woomera in central Aust that the I think, Japanese have used to launch ......oh damn....I'm am brain dead today....that's it.....a satelite....daaa.

I remember my younger sister had a Chrissy doll and a very big baby doll that was life size but I can't remember the name.  Unfortunately, I was still in school in the early sixties and a young married with family in the seventies so didn't have time to get caught up with trend and such like.  I was always way too mature in the head to follow any of that....unfortunately for me i feel I actually missed out on a whole lot.  As you all post your memories here, My brain does a jump of recognition of some things and I am now living young through all your memories...Thank you.

I just love Vegemite.  Another way to eat it is cucumber and vegie sandwiches.  vegie and cheese sandwiches.  It also makes an added richness to stock and gravy.

Oh god!   I Love Lucy....I do remember most of the episodes and yes that one is very funny.  I also like the one where she is in Italy and ends up in the large barrel stomping grapes for wine.
