Sooooo true.

The phone booth and phonograph/record player could be added to the list, too.

I remember embracing the introduction of FM radio because it was "commercial free".

I remember thinking my friend was crazy because he said he thought cassette tapes would replace 8-Tracks.

I remember when we had records that were 78 rpm. Okay, I remember when we had records, period.

I remember when you could pull into a gas station and someone actually put the gas in your car for you! And, if you said "Give me 5" and they asked if you meant gallons or dollars (and you were in a VW bug) you looked at them like they were crazy (a VW wouldn't hold 25 gallons!).

I remember when I had to trade in my Buick Skylark GS convertable for a Ford Pinto Station Wagon because gas jumped up to 35-cents/gallon.

I remember when we had affordable American made cars before Ralph Nadar - and even more fuel efficient affordable British cars.

I remember when cars had "steel" bumpers that actually protected you - not plastic "looks pretty" crap that doesn't do anything.

I remember when you could work on your car with a few wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers - without a $20,000 computer.

I remember when the vocal track on a song was louder than the band. And, singers sang - they didn't scream unintelligibly.

I remember when music lyrics delt with love - not degrading people, or promoting hate.

I remember when Mom could kiss my boo-boo and make all the pain go away.

I remember when I thought I knew more than my Dad.

Well, I can beat you all. We didn't get a TV until I was in the first grade, and we were the first family on our street to have one. We only had one channel, and it didn't always come in that well.
