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.

You could actually work on an engine

I remember the good old days when I was young and didn't have any bills to pay.... :D

I remember the good old days when gas was only $4 a gallon and you could wheel most places without a $50 permit...

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 :mad:

$4 a gallon? Its like $3.65 here in Ohio right now. I remember the good old days when gas was .50 a gallon and a guy came out and pumped it for you, checked your oil, and cleaned your windshield!

It's $3.75 here in Indiana, but im right on the border of Ohio and Kentucky. You had it good back then it sounds like though!

When you only had 3 forward gears and the shifter was on the steering column.

jimbot 05-17-2013 11:30 AM

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.

Or when you could tell a female co-worker she looked nice today without getting fired for sexual harassment

DeweysMom 05-17-2013 11:57 AM

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 a peach tasted like a peach.

Madden 05-17-2013 12:13 PM

When music actually used to be good

"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"

I was speaking of right now, its a great time. These are the "good old days" for 2050 people, and you can enjoy them now if you keep it in perspective ;)

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....

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

Pennsyman 05-17-2013 12:32 PM

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...

When they showed good cartoons on saturday mornings

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????

Beastmaster 05-17-2013 08:18 PM

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 . . .

When kids were able to trick-or-treat without an army of bodyguards

BlueRidgeYJ 05-17-2013 10:42 PM

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.

JPi4.0 05-18-2013 12:25 AM

5 cents

10 cents

15 cents

Thrifty ice cream melting down your arm.

bostiguy 05-18-2013 07:23 AM

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.

chucky cheese 05-18-2013 08:26 AM

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.

dav5942 05-18-2013 08:35 AM

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.

JPi1 05-18-2013 08:46 AM

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!

G54 05-18-2013 10:24 AM

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