Coke! I love my Coke.
Yes, it was only black and white and you physically had to get
up off your butt to change the channels. Seriously!
Oh and let's not forget the rotary phone. What a lot of work
just to make a call. It was however a mobile phone, as long as you
picked it up and carried it around with you.
I hate to show my age but I've been here and made coffee with this
little beauty. Fun, fun, fun. If you wanted flavoring you
could always douse it with breast milk, lol.
Oh yea, 8 Track Tapes. Compact and you could take them anywhere.
And look how compact the player is.
Then, we have the Outhouse. We were very fortunate when I was
little because we had a 2 seater. Yep, 2 seats. Actually they
were 2 big holes in a wooden board that you sat on and hoped
nothing came up the other way and literally bit your butt.
Our little church had a 3 seater. Woohoo!!
I can remember the every day we said the Pledge of Allegiance to our
wonderful country and it was then follower by a prayer.
Full service gas station. Anyone remember having your windows cleaned and
your oil checked, for free. Customer Service.
I can remember gas being 25cents a gallon. Oh my age is showing.
When was the last time you saw a drive-in movie. Go in a pickup and
back into your space. Lawn chairs and a cooler. Oh yeah! Cool breezes,
crisp evening air and popcorn and Coke. I remember them well.
Water pump, literally.
Maytag Washer, top of the line at one time in history.
Remember the ringer. My mother always yelled at me to keep
my hair back so I didn't get it caught in the ringer, AGAIN!
Anyone ever used this little treasure?
Here we have the furnace, sort of. It kept you warm on many
long, winter nights as long as you didn't run out of wood.
Push Mower. These were actually cool at one time.
Personally I'll take our John Deer anytime.
These were in every school room you could find.
No motor or battery needed. It ran on human power.
The wood cooking stove. Oh now this was the way to make biscuits.
I can still smell them today. Momma in the kitchen at 5am making biscuits.
That's all for today.
Hope you enjoyed the trip down Memory Lane.

Wow! Think about the changes our parents and grandparents have seen in their lifetimes. Imagine the ones we and our children will witness.ReplyDelete
Remember many of these myself. We never did have an outhouse, but omg, I think we had that same pencil sharpener. Come to think of it I think my mom still has that sharpener!! Thanks for the trip down memory lane today :)ReplyDelete
What a fun walk in history ... although some of those things aren't that old. Crazy how fast we have developed as a people.ReplyDelete
