    The good old days!!

    You know, we never stop and think, and realize how much some of us miss these days...

    Before the Internet or Text messaging...

    Before the shots and joints

    Before Sidekicks & Ipods

    Before Playstation2 or X-BOX

    Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night...

    When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing...

    When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie...

    When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our WALKMANS!!!


    ***Way back...

    Tag

    I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk!

    Red light, Green light!

    Heads up 7 up!

    Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came on.

    Hopskotch!

    Mother May I?

    Red Rover

    four square

    Hula Hoops

    Running through the sprinkler

    Happy Meals where u chose a Barbie or a Hot Wheels car

    Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car



    ***Wait...

    ....Watchin' Saturday Morning cartoons

    & Price is Right...

    ...Hey Arnold and Doug, RUGRATS!

    Gullah Gullah Island

    The Original Power Rangers!

    Or what about... Legends of the Hidden Temple!!!
    The Mysteries of Shelby WOO!
    Ren and Stimpy
    Global Guts!!
    Double Dare!!!
    Rocko's Modern Life!
    AAAHH!! Real Monsters!!!
    Wild & Crazy Kids!
    ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK!
    The Original 'All That' Cast Members!
    Pete and Pete!
    My Brother and Me!!
    Kenan and Kel!!! lolz (who loves orange soda)
    SALUTE YOUR SHORTSS
    Who could forget Snick?!

    & Nick at Nite! with Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, facts of life & I LOVE LUCY!!!

    & every1 wanted to be in love after watching THE WONDER YEARS!



    ***Not finished yet...

    Kool-Aid was the drink of the summer

    Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars or spokes

    Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school

    Class Field Trips

    When Christmas time was the most EXCITING time of the year!

    When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.

    When getting high was swinging on the swingset

    When $5 seemed like a million, and another dollar a Miracle.

    When you begged to go to McDonalds, for dinner...EVERYDAY.

    When Toys r Us overuled the "mall"


    ***Go back to the time when...

    nobody had cable & people watched THE BOX on channel 25 & called & paid to watch music videos!!!!

    Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"

    Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!"

    "Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

    Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"


    It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.

    Being old, referred to anyone over 20.

    The chance to couple skate at CN Scate Palace was like winning the lottery....

    The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.

    Nobody was prettier than Mom

    Nobody was cooler than Dad

    Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better

    It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the fair...

    Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.

    When staying up late was 10:00.

    When slumber parties were the most awesome thing in the world.

    When you didn't care that you weren't as skinny as the girls in Teen Magazine.

    When Spice Girls, N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys were your top 3 favorite bands.

    When a knife was something your mom used to cut up your hot dog for you.

    When you could get lollipops from bank clerks.

    Getting a pony for your birthday was what you wished for when you blew on the candles.

    When playing make-believe was more fun than watching tv.

    When Disney Movies were the top choice for movie night.

    When saying a bad word to your parents was a big "no."

    When you could still ride in the shopping cart at the grocery store.

    If you can remember most or all of these, then you have LIVED!!!

    Re: The good old days!!

    I love these memories. I still do some of them!!!

    Lawn darts anyone?

    How about metallic jungle gyms with nothing but hard asphalt underneath.

    Having to go home when the street lights turned on.

    Pretending your bike was the Disneyland Monorail and riding it around the local church parking lot.

    Popsicle stick boats floating down the rivers of street gutters during a rain storm.

    It's sad that we can't let our kids have those kinds of memories anymore.

    As for the popsicle sticks ... I still do that when I'm walking the kids to school.

    Great list figment. Almost brought some tears to my eyes.

    Man that list made me feel....so not young!

    How about if you can remember

    Underdog

    Rockey and Bullwinkle

    Watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" when Walt was still around

    George of the Jungle (the tv cartoon, not the movie)

    Fizzies

    Jiffy Pop

    Candy Cigarettes

    Bubblegum Cigars

    No microwaves. We had to learn to use the stove.

    Our phone had a rotary dial and a very short curly cord to tether you to it. It was also mounted on the wall.

    Our address was Rural Route 2, Box 780

    I still remember our phone number as OLive 9-4379....

    Count me in on that vintage too!

    I still remember our first remote controlled TV. The remote was one of those brown bakelite and gold anodized aluminum boxes with just 3 buttons – on/off, volume, and change channel. The change channel only went in one direction – up. You’d press the button. It would make a loud “click” and then, about 5 seconds later, the channel would change. Ahhh… Those were the days!
