Our real phone looked very similar to this model and it set on a shelf in the hall. You had to stand there to talk.
I'm not that old either but I remember having a phone like that, you had a cord holding you stationary???

Do you know 500 people? I have around 50 Facebook friends. If I don't know you in real life, more than a few minute interaction, you don't get added to my friends.

Still using one. They cut the grass much nicer Like a scissors instead of a machete. My lawn has become much healthier since using it.

I actually enjoy using a REEL mower, that is the only way I don't mind mowing. Kind of relaxing

We had a powered reel mower years ago. Family said it cut better than a rotary.

Kid got an allowance and was paid extra for doing extra. She was too young for most yardwork, but we did give her an extra penny per weed she pulled. We had an influx of Russian Thistle or Tumbleweed.

Sadly my wife and I have fallen a bit into this rut. We both had it hard growing up (some nights a single pack of ramen noodles was dinner for 4 at my house). I didn't get a lot of toys when I was a kid. Sure we had had a day in the end of December and our birthdays, but they were scant. I try not to give in every time they ask for a toy and never when they whine. But I do want them to have it a little better than we did.

We are making a conscious effort to curb this. Now that the youngest two are in school they have been doing a lot more chores (they mow the yard with the aforementioned reel mower) to earn their coins.

Sounds good and I understand. We never had kids, and it's a little too late for her to have kids now. Making them do chores and stuff is the best way to go. Hopefully they will appreciate it more. and not take everything for granted like some other people do. The bad thing is it's not the person's fault it's the parents fault that made the person or kids that way

I remember all of these except the telegraph, but I did know what it was. Growing up my grandpa's house had an out house and a well, but they did have indoor plumbing too. We only used the outhouse and well pump when we were swimming in the pool.

I am sure it has to do with reliability, both of device and signal

It might be because the baggy preserves it better. The foil was not airtight so bacteria and stuff can get into it so it must be safer to have it in a baggie now.

There is a pay phone at a 7-11 up the street from us, it does not have a coin slot. It only accepts prepaid calling cards and credit cards.

I remember all of them. I have had them all, I should think.

I also love Sen-Sen for the breath. Do you remember Teaberry, Black Jack, Beeman's and Clove gum? Wax lips? Old school Fizzies in the long strips of foil? Candy dots? How about Barley sugar pops?

One of my favorites is C. Howards gum. Especially their violet gum.

I fond a few web sites that sells candy from the past. Ordered the above gums a few years ago. I found a site that created gift baskets based on the year. A nice assortment of candy old farts remember and kids never knew existed.

Thanks for the pictures.

Seems to me that a beeper saves time. No chit chat. Perhaps the better signal/reception is a good idea. I want my doctor to have 1245 bars when I am dying on the O-Table or in the E-Room.

My DH HATES those miniature spares, and has been known to buy another full-size wheel for the car and have a tire put on it, so he has a full-size spare.

I remember the first time I bought a used car from a car dealer and noticed the doughnut spare tire in the trunk. I went back to the dealer and told the salesman that I had the wrong spare tire, that I got a volkswagen spare.

He said let him see it and when I did, he told me that is the type of tire that comes with cars now days. This was around late 1980s and the car was a Pontiac Bonneville.
