Gas for under a dollar and the gas odd and even rationing days.

Banker-Chuck, I think we had it into the 60's.
If I'm not mistaken, Ipana is mentioned in the movie Blast From the Past with Brendan Fraser, Alicia Silverstone, Sissy Spacek, and Christopher Walken. That movie is a hoot if you haven't seen it.

The "records" that used to be made into the back of cereal boxes. You cut them out and they actually did play on a record player--the one I remember having was something by "The Archies" from the Archie comic/cartoon.

what did we do before cell phones. we use imaginations. something kids have no idea what it is. i have to practically force my grandkids to go outside and play. two of them are sports kids and they are always outside doing something. the rest you have to push out the door. then they have no idea what to do with them selves. what has our world come to. a bunch of lazy people.

keep on trucking

Penny candy--We would walk or ride our bikes down to the resort/bar grocery store and when we entered the door, 2 little barking dogs jumped off there doggie pillows to greet us. ( I was always a little afraid of them) Then we would walk up to the counter where there were huge glass jars filled with all different kinds of individually wrapped candies. We would pick out a handful and it would only cost 5 cents!
