The Good Old Days
Do you remember the
good old days? Well I sure do!
If your memory needs a little nudge, some of these things will
take you right back, and I hope bring a smile to your face!
Pick up the phone and
you heard, "Number please?"
And you said,
"Randolph 4- 3381."
Sometimes you picked up
the phone and heard voices!
Remember those party lines! We shared the lines!
You had to remember your ring before you
answered the phone, one long, two short!
Playing tag and hide
and go seek on a summer evening.

Sometimes we pinched off the glowing end and
put it on our finger for a glorious glowing ring!
(I feel so guilty! How could we do that!)
Wringer washers! What

in the wringer you had to lug a basket of wet
clothes to the back yard and hang them on the line.
bottles...remember how we had to sprinkle
down the clothes after they dried and roll them up tight
and put them back in the basket? Then came the

Do you remember any of
Window fans, Kick the Can, roller skates with keys,
coonskin caps, hula hoops, 45 records,
cherry cokes, juke boxes, pony tails, bobbi sox,
penny loafers, sideburns, Breck & Halo Shampoo,
drive in movies, jacks, going home for lunch,
marbles, monopoly, rabbit ears, aluminum glasses,
sweater sets, white gloves, and can can slips,
the smell of Old Spice, penny candy, and
Mother May I.

your mother's back.

Red Rover, Red Rover,
won't you come over.
Pepsi-cola hits the
12 full ounces that's a lot.
