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.
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 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.
