I remember the Rockford socks, red heels. I was thinking about the red, blue, yellow and green socks we used to buy. Can't find them anymore.

I can remember tying the team up to a hitch rail in town on Saturday night when we went in to buy groceries. I was pretty young then but I remember.

I remember going to the Ford dealership with my Dad and he ordered a new Ford, a heater in the car was an option then. He ordered it. Thank God, because that was before global warming and we were in Indiana where it gets cold every once in a while.

Remember when FM radio was the bastion of beatniks and pseudo intellectuals? FM radio was considered to be way out there in the early days.

Remember beatniks?

Penny loafers?

I remember working 3 or 4 days mowing grass so I could buy a used 2 speed rear end for my bike from the kid a street over. That was living large. Ever see a kid today get on a one speed bike and try and find the brakes?

You don't have to be old to remember some of those things, you just had to be southern and poor.

During times that I lived with my grandparents, we still had milk deliveries. the glass bottles came with crimped paper tops. The same company delivered our ice cream and butter.

Indian River fruits used to ship us tangerines and oranges in small wooden crates, packed inside of a larger cardboard box. I haven't ordered from them in years, but it was still like that in high school.

I remember steelies, peeries, solids and cat eyes. Peeries were my favorites, because they were so pretty. There were big and small versions of all 4 types. We always played for keeps. I had a lot of marbles...

Never had a chamber pot, but I knew an elderly lady who had one on her back porch. We had an outhouse when I was a kid.

They still sell hula hoops, and I still play with them.

Staying at Great Grandma's house when I was a kid, we churned butter and made lye soap. We always did our laundry in the bathtub with a washboard until we got a wringer washer (everyone else had a regular washing machine). I still hang some clothes out to dry to this day.

I remember buying gas for 29.9 and filling the tank for $2.00 (or less)

And having alcohol ANYWHERE on campus was grounds for expulsion from college.

I remember steam locomotives, generators in cars instead of alternators, 6 volt car electrical systems and when girl's blouses buttoned all the way up to the neck.

I remember leaving doors unlocked and not being afraid to hitch hike or walk to town.

I remember being a child of the 1950's and the early 1960's which IMO was a great time to be a child.

I remember the draft (brother got drafted and I enlisted) and belted bias tires.

I remember when jobs were plentiful and you could overhaul an engine with a set of Sears box wrenches and a few other tools. I remember blowing out two head gaskets before I learned what torque meant.

I remember my dad taking me fishing and my mom staying home to raise me and my three brothers.

I remember IBM punch cards and when the IBM 360 was king.

I remember the Chevy that you didn't need the key in the ignition to start it and we never locked the ignition and didn't have to.

How about when you could get most things without leaving your house. Milk, butter & etc. by Sealtest, White's bakery, Fuller brush, & here in the Midwest farmers would sell fruit, eggs & veggies door to door all the time, had a guy known as the soup man that went door to door. Then there was the mom & pop neighborhood grocery store. There was one every 10 blocks or so back then, all gone now! Kids actually played outside, no video games. Yup, I'll take the old days for me.
