Sorry that pictures didn't show up with this. I don't know how to get e-mails to this site. Good old memories though!








Here's a trip down memory lane..........and I've been wondering where my scrapbook went.







Recognize any of these?





baby doll pajamas -





manual window crank - when you actually rolled the windows down...





clotheslines & pins





vent windows in cars - why did 'they' get rid of these?





35mm slides - are yours still sitting in a box in a closet?





carousel slide projector -





Creamsicles!



loved Fudgsicles!





1960's child car seat - they may not have been the safest, but it's what was available at the time... at least we put our precious cargo in something! lol





Popeye cartoons





the soda fountain - best egg creams and black & whites - I miss 'em.





switchboard operators - before automation, there was a real voice at the other end if you needed assistance...





child's metal sand bucket and shovel - before the influx of plastic





plain ol' red fire hydrant - you hardly ever see a red fire hydrant anymore - now they're yellow, or construction orange, or blue,

or two-tone... but not just plain old red...





trusty ol' aluminum stove top coffee percolator



Flintstones chewables - my son loved these - crawled up on top of the fridge to get them when he was a toddler!



used to see these posters all over -



"I Remember Mama" TV series - wow, a real oldie from the 50s...



plugged mine in every morning(!!) and curled my hair before work... and before these,

you rolled your hair and slept in the curlers - good grief, the things we did!



Nancy and Sluggo comics



Dick Tracy (and his two-way wrist radio) comics...



did you used to do this? - we'd put metal taps on our shoes so we'd sound 'cool' as we click-clacked along. it was especially

cool in the school halls!



Brenda Starr comic strip



in October 1957 the Soviet Union wins the Space Race and launches Sputnik 1, the first man made, earth-orbiting satellite...



remember the trademark orange roofs, inexpensive meals, endless pots of coffee and 28 flavors of ice cream at

Howard Johnson's? they used to be everywhere...



I'd go shopping with my mom on Saturdays and what a treat to stop and have a grilled cheese sandwich and soda

for lunch at the 5&10 ...



25 cents a gallon for gasoline - you could cruise around a lot on a couple of dollars... now you almost need to take

out a second mortgage for a trip to the store!!



at school we bought savings stamps for 10 cents. they went in a little booklet and when it was filled, you could take it to the bank for a U. S. Savings Bond - a war bond.



oh my, how could I forget Howdy Doody and Buffalo Bob! we didn't have a TV, but I watched it after school sometimes

at a neighbors house.



Parcheesi - played it all the time back in the day, haven't played it in years - do they even still make it?



classic white bucks...





Superman comics



Little Lulu and Tubby comics and look at the price



Wonder Woman comics



Batman & Robin comics - the Dynamic Duo!



we still have some of these floating around the house... the cats love 'em



♫ "you'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent" ♪



wish I had mine - I had a lot of cool names... Johnny Cash among them...



my mother loved this ...





4 cent postage...



I remember 3 and 4 cent postage, and 1 and 2 cent postcards...



"I Like Ike" campaign buttons



Ipana tootpaste and Bucky Beaver...



lace curtain dryer/stretcher - my aunt had one of these scary, evil looking things (with all the little nails sticking out)

in her attic - it was years before I knew what the heck it was... lol



48 star U.S. flag



Vicks was rubbed in the chest and under the nose....

Looks like it sort of defeats the purpose without the photos.

Bob, thanks but I guess there is no way to post pictures here from e-mail that I receive. I know that I can copy and paste texts here from e-mails. That's about all I know how to do. I am not that tech savvy.

Save the pics from your e-mail to your hard drive, upload them from your hard drive using the "Upload an image" tool, then delete them from your hard drive. When you upload your images, the forum software creates a copy of the images on their server, so you don't need to save them on your computer... unless you want to save them for some reason...

Here's a video I made to explain how you can post pictures from your hard drive. I went pretty fast to keep the file size small. You might want to maximize the window so you can see the details.

Bob and Yomama,

Thanks for the advice but I'll leave the pictures alone from now on. I like to pride myself on being somewhat intelligent but when it comes to computers even with your instructions,I am dumbfounded,I'll pass!

I held a grudge and boycotted Sherry Lewis, Lambchop and Charlie Horse for decades after this.
