Trust me on this: when you fill one with gasoline, the final result is not what your 14 year old mind envisions. Not sure why, but it also leads to a really sore bottom and mad parents. Do they not understand that kids will be kids?

Geesh.

i fondly remember the toy, it was loads of fun

Far out man.. this thread is so cool. It just blows me away man. You know what I mean man? It's like wow man... I mean way far out. Peace brother.

I'm still a hippie at heart I guess. I still love my fellow man.. consider them a brother and treat them that way. I might have extremely over indulged at the time but I survived.. and think I'm perhaps a better person for living the times.

My mother laughed at me when I bought my first bell bottoms. She informed me that it was a girl's dress style in the early forties. My father said I was only wearing my hair long because I was a fashion follower.... what little I have left is still long.
Every generation has it's fashion and lingo. ...and so it should.

My question is.. how did any of us grow up without knee pads and a helmet? If you ever see a child outside these days they are "protected". At least they are outside, right? It just blows me away.

My father gave me a pocket knife for my sixth birthday. It's in my desk drawer now. I carried it with me every day. It went to school with me all through my education.
It was a useful tool that I would not think of being without. The police are called if you have a knife at school these days.

Can a toy gun be purchased these days? I was so poor that a good stick was my gun.. but I fought many a battle and killed lots of enemy with it. Was that unhealthy behavior? I've never considered doing my fellow man harm as an adult.

Speaking of guns and such, do you have to be twenty one to buy a bb gun? Do they still make them? Do father's take their son's to the country and teach them how to hunt these days? Not how to shoot but how to hunt... kill, clean, cook, and eat one's spoils? ...very useful information IMO.

I agree. I came in on the tail end of the hippy days and enjoyed it too. As kids we were resourceful, because for us poor kids, we had to make some of our toys.

Make love, not war! Peace out!

Like you guys said, we all turned out fine. What gets me is we all use to play outside and have fun the kids of today you never see them outside playing everything is the electronic age. Which we are all sucked into it too. It's the times and that's what you have to go with everybody else is. We could still be our own person but everything around us is the electronic age so we kinda have to just follow along.

Something I had as a child and you likely had it too... the dream of success. Call it the American dream or the World dream or whatever. All I had to do was to apply myself and success would follow. I don't think the children today have this dream.

I remember buying my mom one of these fruit bowls when I was around 7 yrs old or so. I think I saved the nickles & dimes I got, because Christmas was coming. I went to the corner store and bought for like 75 cents.




She still have this bowl, it is one of a very few things we (7 of us) bought her growing up.

Right on! All great cars and many more you did not mention, both foreign and domestic. Although I will always consider a true muscle car to be bred here in the place where cars were once cool, there are some mighty fine cars out there.

I had a few and I sold a few I should not have sold. Loved many fine cars and thankful that the net gives us access to all of them. As a watcher or driver.

My last favorite car was a Packard Clipper. The olds Super 88 is in storage and the V-8 Vega is long gone. That last one was not a muscle car, just a example of the little engine that could blow your doors off.

The pic you posted is quite nice, I must say.

Jeez, I learned BASIC in high school in an old Western Electric TTY machine connected by phone line to the school district mainframe, long before there was such a thing as a "DOS prompt". (Back then "DOS" was a mainframe OS.)

I remember when real men used 8" floppies. Heck, I remember when removable media was a stack of hard platters inside of a protective plastic carrier that looked a lot like something that should have a cake inside!

I bought a BB pistol a couple years ago to pass time during TV commercials. I wasn't carded, but I'm far from 21. At Ft. Campbell there's a store where my 12-year-old cousin bought pellet guns. Since the store was in the BX, I don't know if Kentucky law applied.

When I lived in Illinois, which has the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, you had to be 21 to buy and own pistols, but could shoot long guns if you were 18 and under the supervision of someone with a FOID card.

My dad took me fishing, and taught me to clean and cook fish. He took me to the rifle range too, but never went gun hunting. I guess what he saw in WWII turned him off to using guns on living things for good.

I have a few of those. Not that brand, perhaps. They are still fun to use.

I still use a Marchant Rotary Calculator. No computer genius can fix them and when you take off the covers, you are tempted to not try to fix one. A nightmare for many.

Still works and it does the job.

I grabbed this pic off of the net but I have a very similar one that belonged to my Uncle. He used it to run his dairy business many years ago. It will keep a daily running record while keeping a weekly as well as a monthly. Pretty clever pre electonic adding machine.

And purely mechanical, too. Pressing a button moves a lever that slides a pin to engage another lever that turns a cog attached to a lever that flips another cog aligning a little pin to move the dial. Or something like that, LOL.

I'll bet nobody in your state could hope to begin to fix one. Hell, the tools look just like the parts and the parts look unfathomable and they cant be fixed here in Utah. All the repair people are dead.

That almost looks like an old Burroughs Bookkeeping machine. We did have a couple of those adding machines, too.

The thing weighs two tons at least. It still works so no repair is necessary. I was once at an auction and bought another just about like the one I have for four or five bucks. It was far to heavy to lug around so when the auctioneer and crowd went to the next trailer I sat the adding machine under the empty trailer and followed the crowd. When the auction was over... my adding machine was gone. Lesson learned. I still had to pay for the fool thing. The good part was I had no earthly need for a burroughs adding machine and besides.... I already had one.

Was told it's been sitting in my attic for 30+ years when I moved into my house last year.

Most definitely can tell it lol.

Do you remember this? The boy closest to the tv doubled as the remote.




I doubt these are safe enough for the children of today. How well I remember the lickin I got for burning my name into the side of my dresser with my wood burning iron.



Or melting the nose off of the sister's doll with a magnifying glass.

When things were made for quality and not quantity for big profit? Everything is about profit and not a good quality product, and that sucks!!!!!

There are some cottage industries that still work that way. These people take pride in what they do and how well the products are made.

These "independents" are seen by some larger industries as a threat. If you don't go to a big box store to buy a quilt, or a sweater, or maybe an item made of wood, you are hurting the bigger store by not buying their crap.

That's what my mother used.

Being a bit of a coffee snob, that makes me throw up a little in my mouth.

There is no worse way to make coffee.

Those used to leave so much grinds in your coffee. Now use the Keurig for individual taste, and is fast too.

Those things are sinfully wasteful, but would produce a decent cup if they would let you brew your own fresh ground coffee beans. The vacuum sealed, landfill boosting, Chinese packed (no offense), year-old crap for beans they brew do the engineering of the device no justice.

I apologize, but coffee is no joke.

Near as I know, the only perk to a percolator was the aroma that filled the house in the mornings. I miss that but I certainly don't miss the coffee stuck between my teeth.

Percolating is fun to watch.

The dance that is...

Let me see you percolate!

That, my friend, would be a sight you would not want to witness.

My dancing skills leveled off after the twist, watusi, and the mashed potato.

For those that might be interested in how a proper cup is brewed, the basics are covered here.
If more people demanded good coffee, I wouldn't look like such a douche. Please get picky so I don't look so bad.

That is some neat info. I usually have 1 cup a week on sun morning. That is it for me.
