  1. I remember stick ball at my grandmas. She lived in the city. I remember capture the flag at night and the boundaries were my entire neighborhood. I remember two party phone lines and having to wait until the other party finished before making calls. I remember 8 tracks and LP’s that were brought out only at Christmas. I remember bubble gum being .25 cents a pack. I remember pop in glass bottles. I remember Frisch’s in Lebanon where they brought the food to your car and made change without a computer. I remember movies for a dollar on Sunday afternoons. First run movies too!

  2. Memories are great! I’d love to hear what my kids remember when they are 40!

  3. I remember camping out in my back yard for a whole summer! Storms and all!

    I remember 9600 baud modems as being the fastest thing ever!

    I remember when Big Macs came out -“Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!”

  4. And the Big Mac came in a styrofoam clamshell box. Remember the McDLT, hot on the hot side and cold on the cold side.

    I remember Marathon candy bars and Clark bars. I also remember the 2 party phone lines. I remember my Mom taking us to the Taco Bell for the first time in Boardman, OH. We stayed outside and played until the street lights came on. I remember eraser mates because they were terrible for leftys! I remember my dad taking us to the drive-in movie theaters in our PJ’s on Saturday nights. I remember fireflies, but I never touched them….bug phobia! I remember hating that high school computer class and thinking I’ll never need to use one of these.
