YOU KNOW YOU'RE OLD IF
I used the term "Dagwood Sandwich" recently and a young friend had never heard the term; I didn't even know if Dagwood and Blondie were still in the "funny papers"! Yes, "Blondie" is still syndicated.
In a family and friend survey, the following were determined to be examples of "YOU KNOW YOU'RE OLD IF" you remember these:
S & H GREEN STAMPS
RESTAURANTS WITH TABLESIDE JUKEBOXES
KUKLA, FRAN AND OLLIE
ROLLER SKATE KEYS
WATCHING ANNETTE GROW
WAX COKE-SHAPED BOTTLES WITH COLORED SUGAR WATER INSIDE
45-RPM RECORDS (78 AND 33 1/3 TOO)
METAL ICE CUBE TRAYS WITH LEVERS
FULLER BRUSH MAN
THE "TWIST", "MASHED POTATO" AND "LOCOMOTION"
POP DISPENSED IN GLASS BOTTLES
HOME MILK DELIVERY IN GLASS BOTTLES WITH CARDBOARD STOPPERS
NEWSREELS BEFORE MOVIES
