    Quoted from poppapin:

    If you're using one...

    I have one in my basement. Just having a land line these days may mean you're old.

    I didn't remember that, I was only 6 at the time. I do remember when they announced that Elvis died. I was home with my sister playing a board game and the TV was on in the background. I also remember my mom tearing up when John Lennon got shot.

    Quoted from cottonm4:

    Remember when? If you have to ask, then you are not old enough.

    I don't remember seeing them but I have one in my gameroom.

    The back of mine says "Whistle Squealing". The whole saying is Train approaching, whistle squealing, pause - avoid that, run down feeling, Burma Shave.
    Always thought it would be fun to find the rest of the set but seems unlikely.

    I still see those penny trays around Wisconsin. Especially Kwik Trip gas stations.

    vintage hottie of the month coming up for November. Any suggestions? Donna Reed Miss December locked in.
    So beautiful in its a wonderful life.

    I don't know who she is but Angela Greene works for me.

    I know I'm old now. I just turned 50. That's just a number. The thing is my wife and I were driving to an antique shop last weekend. She pulls out a couple Saltines and asked me if I wanted one. I said sure. That's when I knew. Eating Saltines with my wife on the way to go antiquing.

    Quoted from LTG:

    I never did it. But I had relatives that checked the obituaries everyday.
    LTG : )

    My dad used to say he was just checking to make sure he wasn't in them. Ha.

    Quoted from electricsquirrel:

    Seriously...I don't think I could keep up with you guys anyway.

    That's where I am at now too. An old buddy called me up a couple months back to meet up and have some drinks. Just a regular Friday night for him. I ended up feeling like I got hit by a truck the next day. A beer or two with dinner is about all I can muster anymore.
