Default The good old days

since we had started to get into talks about the things we loved as kids, I thought it would be a fun thread to reminisce together about all of the good things we missed or just remember and are glad they are gone.

Some things already mentioned:
The wax candy with the juice in it
penny candy that actually costed a penny
"Ringer washer" washing machines
Drive- in movies
Drive-up restaurants
Candy cigarettes
records, do you even make tapes anymore
the floppy disks that were really floppy
Saturday morning cartoons
soul train
American Bandstand....ok guess i can go on all day

Here's one, the handheld electronic football, baseball and basketball games with only the red slashes on the screen. They reintroduced them as "classics," recently, but they are NOT the same.

Carmen~ the barber shop my DS goes to has a rotary payphone still. One day I dropped him off and his DD was supposed to be there to pick him up, and I gave him $50 to call him when he got there.
Well about 30 minutes later his DD calls and says DS never called him. I go up there and DS is sitting there and says, "the phone is broke, when I press the number nothing happens."
