Do You Remember When?


LOL stood for “Land Of Lakes” cheese?

When comedy was ok to watch in front of your children?

Phones made you stay put during a conversation?

Fast food was a treat?

Trying to get your kids to play inside was near impossible?

It was time to go in when the street lights came on?

A short dress was at the knees?

Coming out of the closet was what you did after getting the vacuum cleaner?

The only time you wore a helmet while riding your bike was on the way home from football practice?

You paid extra to order your car with seat belts?

“Air bags” is what you called your in-laws?

A quick meal didn’t include a microwave?

You went to the Post Office to send and receive letters from friends and family?

The words voice and mail weren’t connected?

Filling up your gas tank cost less than your weekly grocery shopping?

When someone said “Hey” it wasn’t a greeting but what you fed the animals?

The TV tuner only went up tp 9 and stretching your legs was a necessary part of changing the station?

Computers were for smart people?

Frozen dinners were for bachelors?

One job was enough?

Please feel free to add your own “remember when’s” to the list.

  1. – When catching lightning bugs in a jar was WAY more fun than staying inside to watch The Office.
    – When cursive writing was taught in school and you tried hard to excel at it.
    – When eating out AT ALL, AT ANY restaurant was a special occasion.
    – When getting one piece of candy at the bank was a big treat!

    Great post!

      Yay Lightning Bugs, I remember catching them in a jar and sneaking them in under the blankets when Mom wasn’t looking! thanks for the memories 🙂 Yes eating out anywhere at any time was a huge treat and one we hoped for just about anytime we were in a moving vehicle anywhere close to a meal time! You don’t even want to hear the stories of the fights that erupted at the bank over lolipop colors 😀

    Cartoons were only on Saturday mornings and after school, and you didn’t have to monitor weather they were acceptable or not for children to watch.
