I Not That Old But I Remember When

Snow in the winter time was fun

Staying up all night with friends didn't take you two day's to recover from

Hanging out was something your shirt tail did

You didn't need a loan to fill up your car with gas

I will add more

going on any amusement park ride you wanted without needing to take a few hour break

It was a special treat when Dad said we could ride in the back of the Ute, told us to sit and stay seated, and we did just that, so we could get another ride one day. Not one of us fell out either

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the<br />
streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle. Horrors.

"Weeee" was the sound you made when riding your bike down a steep hill, not a brand name.

yeah, my kid doesnt EVER play in the snow "it's too cold"<br />
<br />
we'll see about that

Shhhhhhh don't tell my kids that.

You could wash a potty mouthed kids mouth out with soap and not get the cops called

you could buy milk directly from the dairy and it was really good.

Someon could buy a house with a 20 year morgage, and get what they paid for

I miss those days.:)

When you waved at the police with the whole hand open....Not with just one finger...hehehehe<br />
<br />
Sorry to admit this but I have waved like that to Ranco Cucamonga cops

this is good, you guys are the best lets keep them coming.

I drive a 67 bug...so mine is more live 4-45 hahahaha well on a good day 55

Air conditioning was 4-55, 4 windows down and 55 miles per hour.

You guys & gals. You are bringing back sooo many memories. I thinks its sad our children missed all the good times, Ah well, guess they make their own.

When you could afford to take a family with four kids to Disneyland with out taking out a loan

I heard the ling ling man today!!! And i was soooo excited, i got my money and chased him down the street!!! cant beat the mickey mouse things!!! it was the best ever, at $4, it had better be thought, lol

the sound of the ice cream truck coming down the street was the highlight of the day...

Santa was still real<br />
Driving was a mystery<br />
You didnt have to pay for school<br />
a bad grade wasnt the end of the world....<br />
everything sparkled!!

you only locks the doors when you went to bed...and you left if unlocked thell all the kids were home

the cops would come up on a beer party, and tell you that you have 30 min...and the place better ba clean...and no drunk driving...and go right home...Or they would call your parents

you were smart enough to know that what the coyote did was stupid and not to try it at home.

Cartoons were only on Saturday mornings...<br />
<br />

You could go play all day and never worry about being abducted or molested.<br />
<br />
You could "Trick or Treat" all over town and get home-made goodies!<br />
<br />
We had to wear dresses to school.<br />
<br />
We prayed in the school lunchroom before we ate.<br />
<br />
Everyone in my world had good intentions.<br />
<br />
I love to wax nostalgic....

You could run and run all day and never get tired!

Bike riding was done for fun.

mothers would call their children home for supper from the front porch instead of on their cell phones
