    I miss that you could buy a weeks worth of groceries for $20, and that a dollar bought several grocery items, like milk, eggs, butter, and bread.

    I miss that Lucy couldn't sleep in the same bed as Desi, on their t.v. show, even though they were married in real life.

    I miss that kids could play outside, pretty much unsupervised, until dark in the summers, and I miss seeing kids playing kick the can, and other made up games, outside. They are too busy with their computer games.

    I miss soda fountains, where you could by ice cream cones, and ice cream sundaes, and root beer floats.

    I miss the five and dime stores like Woolworths.

    I don't miss dragging in that old wringer washer machine, and that box to set the laundry tub on, and that laundry tub, every Saturday, from the back porch, and then having to fill it, and getting your hands caught in the wringers, just to do the washing.

    I don't miss those rubber girdles, (which you had to wear even if you were a size 7)

    I miss that show too. Red Skelton was fantasic. I have some of his original shows on DVD. (Chistmas ones with Clem Cadiddlehopper and the Silent Spot) I was just a little girl then but I have fond memories of that show.

    I used to play cowboys and indians, lol! I guess that wouldn't be politically correct today. I remember running everywhere, slapping my side, as if I was making my imaginary horse gallop, by doing that. I miss Roy Roger's, and Dale Evan's movies, too and the many cartoons before each movie, and it was only about a quarter to get into a double feature with several cartoons.

    When five dollars of gas filled your tank. When I didn't have to dye my hair to cover the gray. When I was 30 and they still asked for my I.D.!! When I could take all the kids to see a new movie that just came out at the drive-in for $5.00 a carload. When the only time we had to see O.J. was running in a 30 second Hertz commercial.

    I miss and remember quite a few things.
    1. Playing baseball and/or softball all day
    2. Being able to climb and swing from tree limbs.
    3. Playing tag with my friends
    4. Swinging from the trapezes on the school ground and playing on other equipment that they now don't allow on school grounds
    5.I miss going out on a date to see either a double or triple movie at the local drive in
    6. Paying 39 cents for a gallon of gas
    7. Being able to buy more food for less money which now is impossible
    8. Being able to drive into a service station for full service treatment

    There is just so many but these are just a few of the things I miss and remember about the good ole days.

    Friends and family that have passed, my childhood hometown 4th of July Parade, riding horses and my bike without any fear of falling off, playing softball, dodgeball, on the jungle jims and other games for hours and never getting tired. Picking cherries, apples, apricots, peaches and much more right off the trees and enjoying the taste REAL taste.

    penny candy. Long gone now. It was a good time when a poor kid could bring a single quarter into a store and come out with a little bag full of treats.

    The 5 and dime stores, Woolworth's, & Mc Crory's
    Double features at the indoor theatres
    Doctors that made house calls
    45's
    Horse drawn fruit & vegetable wagon., I can still hear the fruit man yelling "getcha banaaaaaaaaaaanas"
    Knowing everyone in your neighborhood by their first names, although for most adults children used Mr. or Mrs.
    American Bandstand
    Rides on the whip, which was on the back of a truck that came into the neighborhood as frequently as the Good Humor man, everyday
    And most of all, family members and friends who have since passed on

    Only a couple of my kids' close friends have my permission to call me by my first name, the calling of grown ups-- Mr. ,Mrs., or Miss, is one tradition that should be kept alive,,it's just plain good manners.

    The Good Humor Man-he came to our neighborhood around the time naps were over and not in a truck but walked a cart. His name was Mr. Mooney and I remember one day he had a new flavor popsicle-Banana!
    I also miss my Mom's cooking-she made the best fried chicken and biscuits ever!
    I miss going to Sears and getting a little bag of peanuts or cashews - they were warm. yum
