I remember black and white tv with vacuum tubes and a test pattern.
When I pee it sounds like someone milking a cow.
￼￼￼ Oh yes, you also owe me a new keyboard.
I felt really old the first time I dealt with a criminal that was born, more than a decade after I started working in Law Enforcement.
I had that exact one.
My brother and i playing war games using molotov cocktails right next to a busy highway and nobody showed up to stop us.
I remember my grandad starting the car with a starting handle that he inserted into the engine flywheel and turn signals that flipped out of the side of the car.
You remember your father going to the corner independent drugstore to test tubes and buy replacements, as well as setting up a pattern generator and aligning the RGB guns. Or, using percussive maintenance on the mechanical tuner dial. (Yes, that sometimes worked).
I remember going to the corner store for my Mother (I was around 10)
Buying her a pack of Chesterfields (cigarettes) for under a dollar and showing the cashier a hand written note stating the smokes were for her.
When you start to fart dust. Jack.
Or when a fart requires an underwear change.
Not quite there yet, but close. Jack.
Had a 1969 SAAB with four on the tree!
haven't even thought of her in decades, watched romper room before I was old enough to go to school. my mom use to call miss jean a babysitter in a box, i'd sit motionless for however long it was on for, 1/2 hour?, and gave my mom a morning break.
Old if the only choice for tires are two:
Woah, like Hillary???
Shit I used to do that. Had a special long plastic handled screwdriver to discharge the high voltage capacitor
When you could buy cigarettes in a vending machine.
When everyone carried a can of starter fluid in their car during winter months.
Everyone had an oil funnel that punctured the oil can before you poured more oil in your car.
When multi weight oils didn't even exist!
When you have been in a car that experienced a blow out with a bias ply tire.
When you had your car tuned up before winter and points, condensers, distributor cap, rotor and plugs were changed every year.
And reliable car meant you were only left stranded twice a year..
The Saturday dump run.
That still happens in my town, but it's a "recyclables/bulky waste disposal" run now, not household trash.
Keyboards are cheap, a picture of me scrubbing the bathroom floor is death sentence.
I can remember buying cigs for myself out of a vending machine for two dimes and inside the celophane cig wrapper, there were 2 pennies as change for 20 cents.
There was no need for that.....
We threw it over an embankment at the town garage/ dump. The dump guy kept a shotgun with rock salt to keep the bears away during dump hours. He also kept a bolt action handy, just in case. (just in case it ain't bear season but I still want me a bear)
Creature double feature.
Watching TV stations play the national anthem when they sign off at night
When we went to Canada, eh? for a vacation when I was a kid, there was a crowd at the dump every night watching the bears.
I no longer trust farts.
My dad’s car (a 1970 Ford Galaxie Converible) coming back from the tire shop with these new-fangled French tires called “Radial tires” that were supposed to be much better in the rain.
My dad put Michelin X on every car thereafter.
