|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!|

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.

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.
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.

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 . . .

|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...|

I seem to remember a bunch of folks being somewhat disgruntled back in the draft era, and I imagine a good number made the same comments about how much better their "good old days" were, and they in turn were talking about the folks that got WWII to contend with, whose "good old days" was the depression....

"Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack's what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I'm down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when"

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.

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.

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.
