Generation Skipping
« on: March 05, 2011, 01:33:52 PM »
Each new generation creates their own perspective of the world in which we live, while those of us, from the prior generation, just look on with awe and wonder. I was born in 1954 and the world has sure changed. With that in mind, I'd like to hear what you think are the simple things, that this new generation will never know. I'll start with some of mine.

Ice Cream parlors and penny candy stores.

Phones with cords.

When "contact lists", quaintly known as phone numbers, were stored either in your head, or on a piece of paper.

Public pay phones.

A world with few computers and no Internet.

Black and white television.

The prize in a box of "Cracker Jacks" and the messages from Joe in Bazooka bubble gum.

Kids being able to wander their neighborhood, with the only real fears, being moving cars and mad dogs.

Purely mechanical vehicles with the highest intelligence, belonging to the driver.

Gas at 25 CENTS per gallon.

A MikeyDee's burger for 20 cents.

Boy, do I feel old. So what else might this generation be missing, in terms of experiences?

Good one. Reminds me of milk boxes and coal bins/doors and skimming the cream off a glass bottle of milk.

Also thought of Betamax and 8-track tapes. 5 1/4" floppy disks and computers that had 64kb (you read that right) of memory and a 20mb hard drive was consider as impossible to fill. Along with an amber monitor, that was one of the first IBM PC-XTs from the early 80's and it could be yours for $11,500 and yes you read that right.

Remember life before answering machines and voicemail? The phone would ring, no one would answer and you just called back later. You might not reach someone for a couple of days and it was perfectly normal. Now people freak out if they can't reach someone in a couple of hours.

Remember when people smoked cigarettes everywhere?

I was wondering if gas prices keep increasing whether there will be a return to people stealing gas out of your car.

Fixing things. Used to be that things were made to be repaired if they broke. Now it just gets thrown away and replaced.

Driving cars big enough to need their own Zip Code

The Pucker-Factor that accompanies trying to stop above mentioned car when it has only manual drum brakes at all four wheels.

When going to the Saturday matinee cost .35 cents. Popcorn and Mean Green Soda was only .50 cents more.  A weekly allowance of $1.00. (assuming I did my chores.  ::))
Hershey bars .10 cents each or 3 for a .25.

Black and white television.

Those TVs had to warm up when you turned them on before the picture was available.... AND when you turned them off the picture would quickly shrink down to a little dot in the center of the screen before going off with a click.

The highlight of our Summer Vacation was going to the Lake...on family picnics....


We DROVE in our cars to those vacation spots....no motels for us..you could pull over in any wooded area off the road and go camping with a blanket spread between two cars...without five State Troopers stopping to make you move on...

And...popping Jiffy pop popcorn , a pitcher of ice tea, and the whole family sitting in front of the TV and watching...(Alanbama)...The Wizard of OZ...every summer....

Same for Capt Kirk and Spock on Star Trek....O.O   ooooohhhhh.....

popping Jiffy pop popcorn

That popcorn was sooooooo good.  Remember the original TV dinners?  If you got one with salisbury steak, peas, and applesauce, one or two of the peas ALWAYS ended up in the applesauce.  Of course you had to cook them in a conventional oven and peal back the foil.

It was the proper adult thing for us to confiscate and test the substances in a human trial involving my buddy and I . We determined there was no need to pursue the matter further by involving parents or the authority's .

I always chose the one that had a little brownie in the center top, rather than the cobbler.

Sony and Cher were big then too.  I remember on Saturdays we watched Carol Burnett and can still see Tim Conway as Mr...A.Wiggens.

Edit:  I totally screwed that up.  Carol Burnett she was Miss-a-Wiggens.  Tim was Mr Tudball.  Guess I had one too many bong hits during the 80s, 90s, and around the turn of the century.

Roller blades are almost the same as ice skates, when blades came out back in the late 80s, I found this out

Laundry hung to dry outside in good weather and in the basement during the winter because there weren't dryers.

Watching the Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday nights with the family gathered in the living room.

Sleeping out in the backyard with friends and walking down the middle of the road late at night stopping to pop tar bubbles in the road.

Making impressions of Sunday funnies with Silly Putty.

Did someone mention when you had to return empty 16oz coke bottles to be cleaned and reused.  I remember thinking about all the people who had pissed in them, put cigs in them, and other nasty stuff in.  Everything came in glass--Gatorade glass bottles were dangerous.

A friend told me she told her son he was sounding like a broken record and her kid didn't understand what that meant.  Even saying a broken CD is now out. 

I still remember when every gas station pumped your gas.  I think this still happens in Oregon, because it is illegal to pump your own gas there??

When bars never checked your ID and you could get in at 16.  When you could buy your parent's smokes when you were 6 years-old.  My mom would have us run into the store and buy them.  Then, the smoking age became 16 in most states and now 18.  Well, the drinking age was 18 in many states until Reagan threatened to cut off interstate funds if states didn't raise it to 21. 

Many people use to throw their trash out the window of their cars or into rivers and lakes when fishing thinking it magically cleaned itself up.  I don't think most do this now. 

TV stations signed off every night

No one had central air.  If you could afford a window air-conditioner, you were lucky.

Heated car seats were when you dropped a cigarette and caught it on fire

Parents encouraged young kids to go out and play all day and come back when it got dark.

I laughed so hard at this I have tears rolling down my face. I actually did this to a friend once, I was in the back seat and threw my cig out of her window in front. Couple of minutes later she was asking.."why does my back feel so warm?". She must have lent forward just as it had blown back in!

I remember when both the milk man and the insurance man came door to door.

We had a "milk chute" next to the side-door on our house. It was a little door about 18"x18" square - a door on the inside and a door on the outside. The space between in the wall cavity is where the milkman (would be milkperson today!) put the bottles. My mother put a lock on the inside door after my father kept using it as a way in every time my mother locked him out while he was at the local bar. Good times. At least he brought the milk in with him when he was really late - and never once smashed a bottle!

Those of us with younger siblings always had remote control.

I was that remote control. :D

Not having to lock your doors.

I don't have to lock my doors where I live now. In the summer, my back door is often left wide open for the cats - unless I'm going to be gone for more than a couple hours.

Matchbox cars (the really good ones, not the crap they make now).

My sister had a whole collection of Matchbox cars, all kept in pristine condition. (I wasn't allowed to touch them!) She left them in our mother's care while she was in college, and my mother turned around and threw them all out after my sister came out as a lesbian. They would have been worth a fortune now - she kept all the original boxes and everything. My mother was a bitch like that - she knew exactly what she was doing and how upset my sister would be about it.


Barrell of Monkeys, Pixie Stix, red Schwin bike.

Banana bikes! I had a purple one with tassels on the handlebars. :)


Grade School teachers who actually popped misbehaving kids on the butt (always boys).

No such division of the sexes in my grade school - I was forever getting swats for "talking back". That's what they called it, I called it "speaking my mind" according to my Constitutional rights. ;D


Adams Family, Lost in Space, Batman (whop, smack), Bonanza, The Wonderful World of Disney,

I Love Lucy, The Little Rascals, The Three Stooges...

Sunday nights watching Mutual Of Omaha's Wild Kingdom and then a Disney production , this was a family tradition at my house .  


Ahhh Stan watch out for the giant Anaconda ... Stan gave me a kiddie boner .

I was so disappointed when they were forced to include the disclaimer "all scenes, whether natural or created...."

Wasn't the Disney show called something like "The Magic Kindom"?

Yep, they both were a tradition in my house too.

Sony and Cher were big then too.  I remember on Saturdays we watched Carol Burnett and can still see Tim Conway as Mr...A.Wiggens.

Edit:  I totally screwed that up.  Carol Burnett she was Miss-a-Wiggens.  Tim was Mr Tudball.  Guess I had one too many bong hits during the 80s, 90s, and around the turn of the century.  

My mother never ever missed Carol Burnett. My sister and I have often speculated over whether or not our mother had lesbian tendencies, hence the typical right-wing style denial and attack of gay men and women. Mother's intense love of Carol Burnett and other women celebrities fuelled our  speculation. We both loved Carol too. :D

Yes this too ... my hair looked just like Donny Osmonds .

I had such a crush on Donny! Then when Marie came on the scene, I couldn't decide between them so decided I'd have to have them both!


Hoosier by birth...Texan by choice. I do love the Lone Star!

I'm a Hoosier by birth too (Ft Wayne) but my parents, both Buckeyes, moved back to Ohio when I was but a toddler.

Laundry hung to dry outside in good weather and in the basement during the winter because there weren't dryers.

It's rare for folks here to have a dryer - they're much too expensive to run. In the winter, most people hang the laundry outside for a few hours, then bring it in the house to finish it off. I remember it seeming to be a real inconvenience when I first moved here, but now it's just second nature and I take pride in knowing my laundry drying isn't contributing to global warming. ;D


Watching the Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday nights with the family gathered in the living room.

A really big shoe!

Anyone remember Red Skelton? He was one of my favourites from back then.


Galoshes that pulled on over your shoes.

Don't kids wear them any more?

TWO generations skipping...

Neighborhood kids congregating at the first home to get TV, watching "Howdy Doody" and "Kukla, Fran, and Ollie."  

Kukla, Fran and Ollie was still going when I was quite small - I remember it scaring the absolute crap outta me! :o


I still remember when every gas station pumped your gas.  I think this still happens in Oregon, because it is illegal to pump your own gas there??

My very first job was pumping gas.

No one had central air.  If you could afford a window air-conditioner, you were lucky.

We'd put a big square fan, facing out, in the upstairs hallway window and open all the bedroom windows. We were only allowed this comfort at night and only on the hottest, muggiest nights. Growing up in the Greater Cleveland area, that was most of July and August.

Speaking of hot summer nights, the front of our house faced north, towards Lake Erie. Quite often we'd sit out on the screened-in front porch and watch the thunderstorms come in off the lake. It was the coolest place in the house to be on those hot, muggy nights - in more than one respect. I miss thunderstorms - we rarely get them on the Rock.

Anyone remember chocolate and/or eggnog PDQ? I understand they no longer make it - what a loss! Do they still make Tang? It was my sister's favourite but I never really liked it much.

Not too long ago, I had my 7 year old nephew for the night and we played my old disco records on my old record player.  He just loved that technology.  They stopped over a few days later and he asked; "uncle Greg, can we play some more of those big cds?"

I loved the Drive In movies...sometimes what was going on in the cars was more entertaining... :-\

That laundry hung outside could sure fill up the laundry basket.... :D

I spent a few years learning Cathecism' from the Nuns....who could wallop and raise a few good whelps across the palm of my hand...

.I was considered to be 'just a caution' ...and seemed to earn them for some reason. ::)

I used to get sent home a lot for pulling down my peers pants on the playground, as well as various little pranks, none of my teachers thought it was funny, I got kicked outta catholic school for smoking
and telling a nun she had bad breath, and trying to push her down the stairs....I too seemed to earn a lotta good whelps back then  ;D

Do they still make Tang? It was my sister's favourite but I never really liked it much.

I haven't seen that stuff in years.  I think Gatorade took over in popularity though... especially when they started offering it in powder form for you to mix yourself.

I remember on Christmas day all the adults would block off the street so all the kids could play with their new toys together without fear of getting hit by cars.

Toy guns looked like the real thing and your parents had no qualms about you owning a replica .44 Magnum like Dirty Harry. 

Pizza Hut served real pizza....

Creature Feature on Sunday mornings showing all the old scary movies our parents enjoyed when they were kids. 

Wondering what that smell was in the bathroom that came once a month from my mother.  I think the advent of central air did away with this.

yes! ;) It's an important ingredient in a favorite Christmas drink (Instant Russian Tea, although my personal recipe increases the amt of tea) that I make every year to share with my family, and to give away as gifts.

Metal ice trays with the pull handles that would stick to your skin until you ran water on them...

...then the sibling fights and finger pointing at who was the last one to pull one out and NOT refill it...


Barber shops and they never asked how do you want it styled? as there was only one style....short...

..they knew this because MOM had left a standing order....


Going to Blackie's Texaco and getting gas and not having to pay for it...as it was put on our bill which Mom paid monthly...he would also perform all maintenance as needed...

How's about Drive In Movies? We would go in the station wagon, dad would bck into the spot, andwe would roll out our sleeping bags. We would be in out little footie pajamas and there would be a big brown paper bag with greas stains that held buttered popcorn mom made at home.

I remember as a young kid driving with my parents past this adult bookstore in southern Indiana right off I-65.  Back then, they had an adult movie drive-in.  The fence was in really bad shape with many missing boards and the screen was kinda tall, so drivers could see the screen from the interstate.  I remember my brother and I getting all excited driving by there at night.  The bookstore is still there with the peeps and glory holes, but the drive-in is gone. 

Now, kids have to turn on their computer, wait for it to set up, and get on Explorer to find some porn.  So much work for them.  We appreciated porn more, I think.  It would be interesting to see a study about porn and kids coming of age before the internets and after.  I would also like to see a study whether there were more car crashes when that adult drive-in was open.

I couldn't help but recall my young drive in youth days.  My mum took us to a drive in outside of Columbus when we were young and took her quite a while to realize there never was going to be a "plot" to the movie.  I'm sure she thought she was going "To hell in a handbasket".  Never have figured out what that phraze meant, but am pretty sure it involves a penis.

Rewinding your cassettes manually with a pencil to save the batteries for your Walkman.

The fact "Walkman" could end with "man".

I hated them  cassettes, when I used to make mixed-tapes to play in my Truck, and them the dam things would chew and get all twisted up in the cassette-player  and eat them up  :D
