    Try remembering the 60's when Gilligan's Island was not a rerun, all TV's were black & white. 21" was a huge TV. There were only 12 stations posible & you had to change the channels & adjust the volume manually. There were no remotes.

    There were only LP's & 45's no CD's, not even 8-track or casettes.

    There were no microwave ovens, no disposable diapers.

    All phones had a cord, nothing was wireless & you had to dial them, not push buttons. No video games or no walkmans, only transistor radios. No FM radio in cars, unless you has a converter.

    Mick Jaegger was young. You had Rock, Country, Folk, Jazz, Blues & Classical music. That was about it.

    A gas station attendant put the gas in your car, checked the oil, tire pressure & washed your windows all for free.

    There were no drive thru fast food restaurants, no convienience stores.

    Men didn't wear their hats sideways or backwards or got body parts pierced.

    Kids did not talk back to their parents.

    Teachers could punish you with a pointer or ruler rapped on your knuckles or your jiggly butt without fear of anyone crying abuse.

    People didn't sue other people or companies over B.S. stuff or anything & everything.

    When you start remembering things like that, then you can feel old. :wink:
