I remember going to a department store in Tyler and standing on a machine that x-rayed my feet to see if my new shoes fit.

I am sorry you missed so much.
Watch the Dennis the Menance movie...the new one with
guy from the Odd Couple...memory going.
Sort of will show you in a more modern way how things used to be.

We made skateboards out of a 2x4 with roller skate wheels and rode them without helmets or knee pads.
When we didn't ride our bikes, we walked everywhere, and would usually be gone most of the day. Nobody thought anything of it.It's like hell vomited and the Bush administration appeared.

Crocket, I'm going to say that you are 42.
Mood rings and black and white tv (which no one watched anyway) But if they did, it was Bonanza or Andy Griffith. Penny candy really was a penny.RC Cola had cork under the cap with a cash prize, men had giant sideburns...mutton chops(?)Red Skelton and Dean Martin, staying out all day playing with your friends, only checking in at lunch time because the whole neighborhood kept an eye on the kids, going to bed with the doors unlocked, smelling fresh air...I mean, really fresh.Bozo the clown, quisp cereal, Dick and Jane books, Red Rover...Red Light Green Light. Kids called the adults Mr and Mrs...avocado appliances, tv trays and rotary phones. We played cowboys and indians...none of us ever thought that we really were a cowboy or an indian and we never needed therapy. The cap guns never posed a threat to anyone. We ate dirt and skinned our knees and spent most of our time in the creek and catching frogs. Ligtning bugs in a jar were a special treat and if you forgot to let them out before you went to bed, they were all dead in the morning and stunk up the jar. Hoppity hops and running through the sprinklers...and best of all, just talking with friends like we are now.

No helmet ...
What a concept.
We used to stay gone all day, too.
Went to the creek and pretended we were
Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone.
My brother even had a racoon cap.
