Spanish moss hanging from southern trees.

Push mowing the entire 2 acre yard.

Sky King, and Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.

Cars with no air conditioning or radio.

Foam hair curlers and bonnet hair dryer.

My father picking up hitchhikers without fear of personal safety.

Neighbors really knowing their neighbors.

Calling someone at their home phone and if it rang, and rang, and rang, that meant nobody was home.

WOW, only two people on a party line. We had about 16. Series of rings that went something like long, long, short, short, long.

Got those in my short wave radio, and a tester of my very own.

Every GOOD guitar amp contains those.... There's no school like old school!

Hey, Roger, I still have a reel to reel mower. Got it with my college graduation money back in '76. It has moved 12 or 13 times with us, but probably only mowed half that much.

The original Beetle - hey, we still have that too.

A VW bus (Don't go knockin' if it is rockin'). Almost have one of those too, just in pickup form. Look around NE IA, Roger, you might see our old bay window bus.

I remember when Black Jack gum was available at every counter where candy could be found. I remember real soda jerks making chocolate Cokes on Saturday at the corner drug store soda fountain. I remember my first automobile that had hand operated windshield wipers and a hand-choke on the dashboard. I remember a gas war when gasoline was 12 cents a gallon. I remember being able to go the the "air-cooled" theater on Saturdays for a nickel. I remember when the trucks that haul things from coast to coast weren't as large as today's average sized pickup trucks with an 18' U-haul trailer attached. I remember when all roads were two lane............one each direction...................with the lanes not even as wide as the ones today. I even remember when we'd go on a vacation and not lock the doors at home.
