OK, I gotta chime in. I'm going to be old on October 8th -56- so here goes.
I grew up in Southern California, so my winter snow stories are from when we would drive up in my grandparent's 57 Buick wagon and look at it and play a bit in it then get too cold and drive down again.
The milkman came on Friday mornings, early. My mom would keep the used milk bottles in the garage until Sunday night. First she would rinse them out when they were empty,put them in a wire holder (kinda like a 6-pack with a handle over it)and put it on the front porch. She'd write a note for what we needed - butter,mild,sour cream,etc) and leave it for him. In the morning we would get the milk. If it was cool enough in the morning (November to February) we would skim the cream off the top and use it on cereal (cream rises to the top in the cold like that).
We had a huge television - a Dumont-Rumson (they no longer make them). It was black and white and we had the TV guide printed in the daily paper along with the radio guide next to it. If you missed a show,too bad. NO VCR's. My brother and I would get our chores done on Saturdays and watch American Bandstand at 1PM. It was the only national dance program on at the time.
We had no air conditioning - that was a huge luxury. Even JC Penneys, Montgomery Ward's or Sears weren't air conditioned. They had large fans that were ceiling mounted. There were thin ribbons tied to the grating on the front so the workers could tell if it was on.
When we would purchase something in the department stores, the clerk would write down everything you had on a sales slip. She -it was always a woman - would take your money (few people had checking accounts yet)and put it in a small hooked basket along with the sales slip. She would then hook it on a long wire then push it. It slid along the wire to the cashier at the back of the store who would make the change and push it back to the clerk.
Today, we don't show patience in much of what we do. We pace in front of the microwave. We want things now. If it isn't soon enough - screw it-I'm moving on.If someone doesn't do what we want - then to hell with them and we go find another. Sad what we have become. I'm no paragon of virtue. I do a lot of dumb things and then stand there and wonder what went wrong.
Yeah we were the Woodstock generation. Viet Nam. San Francisco. the LA scene. Sit-ins and war protests. A lot of us died in Viet Nam and a lot of us tried to change the way others who had no voice could get a better life.
But we soon discovered that change doesn't happen overnight and we got disillusioned. We tried to make things better, but there were others who introduced drugs and alcohol into the mix and a lot of my generation got hooked on things that would make them never the same.It made their lives messy and jail and probation and now you have a record.I remember seeing Big Brother and the Holding Company (that's who Janis Joplin was with for you younger people). We thought this would go on forever. She believed the lie that heroin would help. I recall watching Jimi Hendrix play and thinking what a master he was. He also believed the lie. He choked to death on barbiturates and his own vomit.Jim Morrison was a tortured soul who couldn't stay clean,either.
Guess I'll stop rambling now.....

All right, another use for The Cannon Diet!!! You could always tell that Cannon was behind you because his car was leaning the wrong way!!!

Anyone remember Fizzies candy??? We used to see how long that you could hold one in your mouth.

Fizzies are back!!!
