Old Hands awesome post inspired me to start a thread about what we remember as a kid vs. what its like now. As an oldster here, i go back farther than some. I remember: Black and white TV No FM radio Record players that were not necessarily stereo. I had one. Black dial phones attached to the walls. Handwriting class at school Cadillacs being the biggest status symbol in cars. Segregation in the south and open bigotry in the north (your parents would literally disown you for dating a person who was not white. I find this very sad. Girls had tp wear skirts to school (until my high school junior year). We had a smoking lounge at school. We would be charged with a felony for even being around a weed smoker. Long straight hair parted in the middle for girls AND boys. Richard Nixons resignation These are but a few things I thought of that dont exist today. You?
