G54 ...you could get on a plane without being treated like a suspect.

JPi1 When you could weld on your jeep without disconnecting the battery because the electronics consisted of an am/fm radio and a set of points and condenser!
05-18-2013 07:35 AM
dav5942 And no helmets no seat belts!

And you were not breaking the law 18 times a day.

And government worked for the people not for a dictator.

chucky cheese when making your own gun powder from stuff you got at the drug store or fire crackers and blowing up GI Joes or Barbies was not considered terrorism.

bostiguy When you actually never really heard of someone on welfare or disability some other form of government assistance.
newspaper delivery was from a kid on a bicycle.

JPi4.0 5 cents

10 cents

15 cents

Thrifty ice cream melting down your arm.

BlueRidgeYJ When Snickers only made A Snickers bar.
When you memorized phone numbers, and not 10 digits either. That's long distance, and expensive.
Fried chicken - REAL fried chicken - on Sunday, after Church of course.
Sugar in Coke made in the US, not Mexico.
Real food.
Pick-up neighborhood games.
No bike helmets, skate pads, 'cushy' baseballs, or face screens on batting helmets.
When 'social media' was the pinboard at the community store.
When news came from the Babershop, Hair Salon, and Front Porch.
When t.v. went to sleep, with Dixie singing her a lullaby.
When throwing rocks at cars or destroying mailboxes was kids having fun, not felonious terrorism.
When everyone ate supper at the table together, and dinner came around noon.
When 'reality t.v.' was Cops and Rescue 911.

When we weren't at war.

Beastmaster Ah yes, the good ol' days when your vehicle only had an AM radio and the way you got cooler was to roll down the windows and drive faster.



Oh, wait . . .

bostiguy When Wide World of Sports was on. Or you could watch huge sporting events without being charged $59.99.

What used to be the challenge events show where (pro) athletes would compete in different events against one another????

Pennsyman When my buddy and I would go outside at 8 a.m. on a Saturday, go fishing, play stickball, basketball, football, ride our bikes to the drug store to buy a candy bar, then go fishing at the local pond, then over to his house to have a cook out....with no Game boys, video games, i-phones or other nonsensical distractions....we just had to be home when the street lights came on. Life was good...

True enough...the good ole' days depend a lot on what era you grew up in.

DeweysMom When we could play "hid & seek" out at night, without worrying about being abducted by some perverse person.

When my parents would take us on weenie roasts to the bay, or when Mom would make hot chocolate and home made donuts, and then Dad would take all of us to the snow to play.

jimbot When you could smoke inside.
Being able to tell a dirty joke without worrying about losing your job.
When I could bend over and touch my toes silently.
05-17-2013 09:40 AM
Beastmaster When you only had 3 forward gears and the shifter was on the steering column.

I wish I knew of these good old days when gas was cheap, I'm only 19 so my entire driving career I've been paying ridiculous prices for it

I Remember the Good Old Days when...

Could be about anything, and it doesn't matter how old you are, we all remember the good old past before something changed it. Finish the sentence...I remember the good old days when...

...air conditioning in a Jeep meant driving with the top off.
