oh bring back so many memories! thank you!

yes ! I know that video, my husband always wishes he looked like Barry Gibb! (all that hair!) I lost my virginity during a drive in showing of Saturday Night Fever - is that too much info? he he

Not that I haven't been divulging too much already!

oh your computer story is too funny! My daughter doesn't believe me when I tell her there was a time when we could only watch cartoons on Saturday mornings - or you had to wait for the Wizard of Oz to come on TV once a year - either that or you missed it for a whole nother year!

OB tampons used to drive me crazy! I need an applicator! LOL

Terri - my mom says in her younger days - they were all called Kotex - that's it!

NOT AT ALL, Terri! Some of the pads were called Modess. They were discretely wrapped in plain brown paper. I used to be so mortified when I had to go to the local drugstore and the 16 year old son was there. Usually I went home and faked it! I bet you never thought you'd be on the internet with a chick who knows how to make sanitary napkins!

I remember one time in college when the smug clerk asked me if I wanted a bag. (Try to embarrass ME will ya?!) I said, "No thanks, I'll eat them here." The look on his face was priceless!!!!

Oh y'all do make me laugh so much!

Now I remember Modess too vaguely on the shelf - but they looked like hospital supplies!

Oh yes the embarrassment of it all. I used to pick up a box then only go to the checkout aisle where there was a female cashier!

If there was no female cashier on duty at that time, I would leave and come back - gee!

Yes, my mom did say something about my grandmother making her own....we have come so far in some ways haven't we?
