There have been a number of nostalgia emails floating around the web for years now about that kind of thing, but I thought it might be kind of fun to start a thread about what we remember from the "Modern" era years that are no more in our post-Modern world. Pretty much anything is fair game, from advertising slogans to gizmos to anything else you can think of. The only rule is that it doesn't have a place in "Post-Modern" life any more. I'm looking forward to a trip down memory lane!

I'll go first...

I can't believe it I found a picture of my first radio. Here it is without headphones and antenna.

P.S. I built one shortly after I got this one. They both worked.

Oh such fun -- green/shag/desert boots, kiddie cars, go go boots, hot pants, even young we all wore girdles, rubber lips, illusion high heels, fortrel, phentex, penny loafers, white bucks, ivy league shorts, live Houdy Doodie, Dale Evens, Indian Test pattern I would watch when we first got our tv in 55. I called my father Daddy O. Necking with 6ft. 3" boyfriend in back seat of my Beatle - the battery touched the springs and started a fire. Told my father we were going to watch the submarine races. On and on. "God gave us memories so that we might have roses in December".

I just looovvvee this group!! I feel like a pup at 40.

I vaguely remember owning desert boots, and the shag in the living room. Platform shoes, and hearing the term "Go-Go-Girls", but that's all childhood stuff. My teenage years were the 80's.

I am, however, diggin' on that cat's whisker! Nice setup.

Flash Gordon. Alfred Hitchcock's Thriller. (I was only allowed to watch it if I went to the back door all by myself to check if it was locked. BARELY passed the test...) Gunsmoke and Marshal Matt Dillon.
Eating green grapes on the front porch swing.
Coon skin caps.
"Oh, you'll wonder where the yellow went when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent"
Dinah Shore and "See the USA in your Chevrolet"
A 4 digit phone number.
My dad starting to build a fallout shelter in our basement.
And, omigod, dashing through the DDT cloud when the mosquito fogging truck went down our street.

(Did you know, there were spiders inside some of those beehive hairdo's?!)

When Zest bath soap was first introduced.

"For the first time in your life, feel really clean, get that ZEST glow from head to toe."

Lifebouy soap.

"Lifebouy really stops BO."

The George Gobel show.

The original Maverick show.

Yeah well I got my mouth soaped with Lifebouy soap for swearing ! I also owned a Mao styled dress. Very style conscious in those days. All the sock hops where the girls danced with other girls cus the boys were too cool (shy). We did the Popeye, Mashed Potatoes, Stroll, etc. dances I mean.
