    Now that I'm older I find myself saying the TV

    shows I watched as a kid are a lot better then the crap on tday. I also think some of the toys I grew up with are better like the Games today's kids play with. Like the Game Boy Color and those slap bracelets that hurt like heck when you slapped it on your wrist. Lol

    I always use "back in the day"

    although I'm only 18 I use the phrase to refer to something that happened about 10 years ago. Or I use the phrase because I love classic cars.

    Looking backward can be fun sometimes.

    We didn't have anything but I don't think we missed what we didn't have. Maybe today we have too much. We must have been tougher because the government didn't protect us as much. We didn't have infant car seats, we stood up in the seat. When we were old enough we rode in the...

    Isnt it funny that we come to a computer site

    to discuss"back in the day" i think we did have it more simple and straight forward years ago. We had neighborhoods to play in and explore and do dumb stuff. we could be kids. that was fun

    As a father and Grandfather this old Kodak

    commercial has some deeper meaning for me now than it did when I first saw it in the 1960s.  I think maybe most parents can feel this story as well.
