Wink Speaking of 'old'

SPEAKING OF 'OLD' How many of these do you remember:

Headlight dimmer switches on the floor
Ignition switches on the dash board
Heaters mounted on the inside of the fire wall
Real ice boxes
Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards
Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner
Using hand signals for cars without turn signals

OLDER THAN DIRT QUIZ. Count all the ones that you remember, NOT the ones you were told about. Ratings at the end... Ones I remember bolded.

1. Blackjack chewing gum
2. Wax Coke-shaped bottlesd w/ colored sugar water
3. Candy cigarettes
4. Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles
5. Coffee shops with tableside jukeboxes
6. Home delivered milk in glass bottles w/cardboard stoppers
7. Party telephone lines
8. Newsreels before the movie
9. P.F. Flyers CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT THIS IS??
10. Butch wax
11. Telephone numbers with a word prefix (mine Osborne)
12. Peashooters
13. Howdy Doody
14. 45 RPM records
15. S&H green stamps
16. Hi-Fi's
17. Metal ice trays with levers
18. Mimeograph paper
19. Blue flashbulb on camera
20. Roller skate keys
21. Packards (my father had one)
22. Cork popguns
23. Drive-ins (movies)
24. Sutdebakers (father had one of these too)
25. Washtub ringers (brother got his tie caught in it)

If you remembered:

0 - 5 you are still young
6 - 10 you are getting older
11 - 15 do not tell your age
16 - 20 you are getting there
21 - 25 You are OLDER THAN DIRT

(guess we all know what this makes me....

I'm older than dirt - thanks for the reminder!!!!!!!!!! P. F. Flyers if I recall were a brand of tennis shoes. It's vague (yea right) - but I think that's what they were.

OMG - I only missed 2 and I could just need a gentle reminder on both of them.

BUT, they used to be just black and white - and norge!!!! This is neither a joke nor a game - it's downright discouraging - I guess I'll have to add a forum titled - Things We Must Accept

I remember all of them with fond memories..

i have several green stamp books (and Blue Chip stamp books) in my kitchen drawer..still use the ice cube trays in the RV. They don't crack like the plastic ones do..
Still have my roller skates with Maple wheels on them in my skate case in the garage..White high top boots and a pair of Motoecycle boots with studds on them are out there too..All from the very early 50's.
I guess I'm older than the dirt that dirt sits on, LOL

I am older than dirt.....outside.

Inside I am a girl in my twenties, and can't understand why the mirror does not reflect this.
