any of you other geezers remember the warning about never putting aspirin in a Coke?

Uncle Bob do you ever put Boston Baked Bean Candy in your coke?

Uncle Bob make sure people don't use the red skins or hot n' spicy!

Uncle Bob: mouth full of peanuts, swig of coke, swirl in mouth and chew!!!
That's how the kids do it nowadays.

Gosh Miss StirBlue I'm still a kid I just pour those goobers in the bottle and enjoy them. What's aggravating is when ya run out of Coke and there's a couple of peanuts stuck in the bottom of the bottle. It can become a real challenge to get those little devils to turn loose.

As a kid, you probably should refill the bottle with the water hose till they float to the top!

I remember this, except we used those little spanish peanuts... that is soooooo goooooood!!!!! Katie... beer and m&m's is about the strangest thing I have ever heard!!! It don't even sound good but I am not one to knock something till I have tried it, so I will get back with you on that when I do.

I have had folks look at me like I was sick when I spread peanut butter on my celery or carrot sticks.

Ahhh, what memories!!!

Being from Texas, we had to have a lot of salt to make a map. We started eating it on Monday and we only had enough to make Oklahoma by Friday!

The kids make dough maps in Illinois so I have received many Iowa maps!

I have sent M&M & Skittles to school for solar systems projects but I have not got one yet.

Sattie, many years ago when our children were small, we used to serve them a snack we called "ants on a log." It was celery sticks spread with peanut butter sprinkled with raisins, so your peanut butter/celery thing isn't so weird or unheard of. At least here in the U.S. It was also served as a school snack to the children.
