Does anyone remember making rings out of glass soda bottles. You'd scrape the lips of 2 bottles together until they fell off, took hours!! then you'd smooth them down and put them on string and wear as a necklace! Making go carts out of wooden milk crates and roller scates?? Playing hide and go seek, hop scotch?? God I am Old!!

I got twelve. Brownie, my sources tell me that Butch Wax is what guys used to put in their hair to get the "greaser" look.
Its so funny when we go to the store. My son firmly believes that those dang wax coke bottles are the newest thing. I have to laugh. Does anybody remember those wax red lips?

Does anybody remember elevator operators? Carbon paper?
Stockings with seams up the back? Sanitary belts? Typewriter ribbons? Dress shields?
I can't be the only one.:roll

Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water
45 RPM records (the little ones, right?)
I know that Packards and Studebakers are cars (I think), but I know they were before me, and I've never sat my patootie in one. I was born in 1975, and even my granny had a souped up Chevy hot rod lookin thing.
"Soda pop machines that dispensed bottles" - I remember drinking out of bottles, but not machines that dispensed them.
So Don, sorry, I'M JUST YOUNG!!!!!!!!
