And it was such an honor and privilege to be asked to clean the blackboards and erasers!

For that matter, I'm old enough to remember blackboards. Nowadays they use white boards or computerized Smartboards.

I remember, if a room didn't have an electrical outlet, you could remove the ceiling lightbulb, and plug your electric iron into that, back when electric irons were rather new, lol.

Anyone remember watching older people try to remove a spot on a pair of slacks with gasoline?? They used to show that on black and white tv, an ad to tell you NOT to do that! I remember parents of my friends doing that, though.

Regular savings interest rates were 2%....and that was decades ago. It is hard to find a Long Term Time Certificate of Deposit that pays 2%.

Hi Chip....Let's do the cyber "Freddy". Last month I went to a Peter Noone concert. Herman's Hermits was popular around the same time as Freddie and the Dreamers.

Glass bottles of toiletries. Cut my foot when a bottle of Breck shampoo shattered in the tub.

Gas attendants checked your oil, tire pressure, and washed down the windshield for a full up

Saturday afternoons at the movies. Matrons would patrol the aisles with flashlights, and
shine it your face if you were talking too loud.
