    Let's see if your old enough to remember certain things. I thought this would make for a good thread because of a picture I just saw.

    Do you remember when places used to put AIR CONDITIONED boldly on the sign out front. Used to see it at motels and places trying to bring in a crowd on a hot day. Motels used to put TV or COLOR TV on their signs at the swanky ones too. Now a days this is taken for granted all of them have A/C or a TV. In the 50s though it was a big deal.

    How about Dizzy Dean and Pee Wee Reese doing the Game of the Week on Saturday afternoon? If Ole Diz got enough Falstaffs (remember those...yuk) down his throat a rendition of Wabash Cannonball no doubt would be sung in the late innings.

    What are you old enough to remember from the bygone days?

    I remember serving my 6 month sentence in Juvenile Hall when the 9/11 attack happened.

    I saw the movie! :p

    one of my early remembrances, rotary telephones and party lines!

    and there was always that one nosy neighbor on the system that would eavesdrop in on everyone's phone calls, and then pass it off as gossip.
