    I'm older than dirt!! I always thought I was one day *younger* than dirt! The only thing I don't remember are the washers with wringers. I mean, I've SEEN them, but never actually had one in the family, I don't think. I think I played with one in a vacation house one time or another, though.

    I remember blackjack gum - you really had to be in the mood for it, but I think I'd like it more now that I'm adult than I did at the time.

    I also remember something that wasn't on the list! I SWEAR I remember running down the street behind a truck that delivered ice, with a bunch of other kids, begging the guy in the truck for ice chips. My father and grandmother said that there was NO WAY that I remember that, but I remember it vividly.

    One of the places we lived, they delivered UNHOMOGENIZED milk, too! Ewwww, that was yeuchhy!! I would never take the first two or three glasses from those bottles - they were GREASY with cream.. Ewwwwwwwww

    Yep, older than dirt, but what was the question?:zzzzz

    My kids ask what position I played in Little League, and was aghast at being told GIRLS weren't allowed to play when I was young.

    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?
