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?

The gym suits we wore in high school were a one piece puffy red cotton thing with elastics at the bottom of the legs and at the arms.  It's kind of hard to describe but picture a bumble bee halloween costume but in red cotton with a zipper.

Our gym clothes were bright blue cotton shorts that zipped up the side, not very flexible, and white blouses that had gripper snaps up the front.

I had a memory today.

Remember when you dropped openthe glove box and there were two little round flat spaces on the inside of the door to put your soda when you were at the drive-in?  That was before cup holders in the console.  I also rememebr little plastic brackets that you wedged in your car window that held a cup.

Ya, I still live with the smell of unwashed gym clothes when I open the 19 year old boy's bedroom door and it is EWWWWWW.

I remember the spaces to set the drinks in the glove box and the plastic brackets in the car window - they broke pretty easily and more than once I had my drink slopping all over!  Thank goodness for modern day cup holders.

I remember when I had horn rimmed glasses and then the wire rims came out (in the late 60s - early 70s) - I was so happy to get my first pair of wire rimmed glasses in eight grade.  Now those horn rimmed glasses are back in style!

I had the same gym uniform  as sugar77 did only mine was in a hideous shade of bright green. No one looked good in that color.
