Any of the ladies remember the year Barbie dolls came out? How about getting one of those kits that had high heels, plastic "pearls", and a "mink stole" for dress up. Speaking of dress up, remember when you had to have white gloves and a hat to go out? Do you remember when your first pair of stockings was REALLY stockings with a garter belt, and you NEVER got them before 13 years old? (I'll stop here, now that you all know how old I am.)

My parents had one and I used to read the letters on the dash! And, yes, I remember when Barbie dolls first came out. Does anyone else remember "Bonnie Braids" or "Zippy"?

Jul 22, '02Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 4,738; Likes: 104I was born in 1976. I scored a 6, but I think it's more because I grew up in the country in a bit of a time warp.
Things that prove I am a fetus:
- Mom worked and I went to daycare
- Grew up with feminist toys and still own a copy of Marlo Thomas' Free to be you and me album (distributed by Ms. Magazine)
- I remember when candy bars were 35 cents
- Used to dance to Madonna's Material Girl during lunch break in 4th grade.
- Had classmates whose parents were hippies and smoked a lot of pot.
- Remember having my after school cartoons interrupted by Ronald Regan's address following the Challenger disaster.
- Remember being forced by my mother to wear jumpsuits made out of corderoy and velvet with bell-bottoms.

"I wonder how old you would be, if you didn't know how old you were?" Now I suppose no one remembers who he was either? I am not telling. Anybody know?

Jul 22, '02Occupation: RN Joined: Nov '01; Posts: 1,418; Likes: 25MamaBear, yep, I remember all of those things. I think one of the most difficult things a 7th grade girl could do on a Sunday was keep your seams straight, and keep your garter belt and sanitary belt from getting tangled! LOL!
BTW-Satchel Paige was a baseball player, but I don't remember which team-
Jul 22, '02Occupation: RN BSN Joined: Jul '02; Posts: 109Yep, you got it right. He was probably one of the greatest baseball players of all times. He was a black man and he played before they let blacks play major league ball. They had black teams that played all over tho. My Dad remembers them and said it was probably the greatest baseball that he ever saw. He is still around and talk about older than dirt!!!! By the way does anyone remember those awful brown stockings that they made us wear. They were held up by some kind of harness thing that went over the shoulders. Mine was always twisted. Could never get it on straight. Then I would go to school, go in the bathroom and unhook the thing and roll my stockings down to my ankles in a humungous roll. Everyone did it. Why oh why did they do that to us poor little kids!!

Went to the drive-in past w/e. They telecast the stero sound through your FM dial. Sounds fantastic!
