I was pretty young too, but I remember my mom getting lamps, silverware, and dishes with green stamps. I also remember her getting dishes in the laundry detergent box, and from the gas station. We had a pretty eclectic set of dishes.

I can't remember what my mom got. I'll have to ask her next time we talk.

You know you're getting old when those around you post that "I remember when my mom did (such and such)."

But I remember when I did the same such and such!

I remember when:
Milk was delivered and put in the little metal box at the front door.
Fizzies were first made.
Cigarettes cost the same as the price of school lunch and went up in price accordingly.
Fishnet Stockings
Mini Skirts
Slurpees were first available at 7-11
Before: ADD and ADHD diagnosis, when children were disciplined to behave instead of drugged.

you know you are getting old, when being warm is better than being sexy.

Mini-skirts, fishnet stockings, and go-go boots. Can we still do the jerk?

Dad had 4 kids to move around the room to get the best reception, holding foil, wire hangers. He did it to get a laugh...he has regretted that abuse of parenting

His kids are very good about playing pranks on him, now.
