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 They were superseded in the 1970s, but some of you may remember.

"Houston, we have a problem." Looks like MinusTwo is armed and dangerous! Bawling


@Maggie15 -- Great retro photo. The photo/cover I remember was ALL thigh tho', took up the whole cover. I would say life sized, but it had to have been smaller because (as a kid) we were putting our legs up to it and saying, "My leg is as big as Pele's."

Eli - except that the Nike program was discontinued in 1974. Still, it was an interesting tour. Everything is still in working order, except of course no longer armed and staffed except by volunteers telling history stories.
