I consider myself a young man but I do remember rationing during WWII and returning cooking fat to the butcher shop to help with the war effort. People had Victory Gardens in their yards and vacant lots. I remember the rags-old-iron man with his horse and wagon going down the alleys buying scrap. I remember when most people only took a bath on Saturday night; I guess we stunk pretty bad most of the week. I remember listening to The Shadow on Sunday afternoon and Bill Stern’s Cavalcade Of Sports on Friday. I remember when there wasn’t such thing as a TV in anyone’s home that I knew of. It was a big deal when the doctor came to the house in his brand new Henry J. As I said I am not old I have just been around for a long time.

Speaking of cold, I remember when getting ice from the freezer meant you had to lift the metal bar in the middle of the metal ice tray to free the cubes...and sometimes if you weren't careful, you could cut/pinch yourself...and if your hands were wet, they'd stick to the metal tray!
Those old ice trays were a "lethal weapon"! And rarely yielded intact ice
cubes... (if you were lucky enough to escape injury) you got crushed ice!

Default Like it or not...

Here are a few more "gems" from the book! "You've realized that the time from
"student discount" to "seniour discount" passes in the blink of an eye"!
"Your idea of roughing it on a camping trip involves a 27 foot motorhome
equipped with a queen-size bed, microwave oven, and satellite tv". HMMM,
my r/v is 28 feet long! "The women in Playboy and Penthouse look like jail-
bait"! "The car you drove in high school is now considered a classic worth
10 times it's original price"! AND if there were any doubt that you have
entered middle age..."Acne has given way to hemorroids and arthritis"!

Yes I remember. The Day they let the Indian and coloured into the schools. I'm only 57 but I remember. I'm the only one in the Family that remembers my little sister who died at child birth and was waked in a small coffin in our own living room. My Mother was still in the hospital. You see Robo we grew up in the south and lived off the land and did what we had to do in order to feed the Family. No disrespect, Wills in da Swamp in La. P S The Old Bourg School is still in use in Terrebonne Parrish
And "they" were wrong? Seriously, why else would you even mention it if you did not think so?

Otherwise, you would have said, "The day all Americans were welcome in the same school despite their heritage."

Do you remember the day the Hugonots first started to create their own language?
