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?

I do remember adding material to make flares.  I also remember in grade school we all wore either Levis or GWG jeans.  Other kids used to try to pull off the Levis tags so we used to sew it down so it couldn't be torn off. Our Prime Minister in Canada during the late '70s was Pierre Trudeau and his wife Margaret had a line of jeans called "Maggie T's." Those who were lucky enough to Maggie T's were the envy of the other girls at school (I never had any Maggie T's...but I sure wanted them!).

Girls didn't get to wear pants to school until the early 70s around here.  I got my first pair of jeans in 1974.  Not long after that came Jordache...I never could afford them.  But we already hit on Dittos from that era earlier in this thread.

I saved up for ONE pair of Calvin Klein jeans once, only to find out that the cut was a narrow waisted one, and discomfort was the price I paid to be fashionable.  I learned from that one.

I have a cool photo booth pic of my boys from about 5 years ago, from a booth at the MN State Fair.  I keep it on the fridge, it's fun to look at!  I wonder if that booth is still there...?

I only used a booth once with my best friend.  It was at Magic Mountain.

I've seen Bazooka gum around but not with "Bazooka Joe."  Does it still have the comic inside?  And what on Earth was the story of Joe's eyepatch...giant bubble explosion accident?

I actually had this pair in dove-brown.  Made me nearly 6' tall!
