Regina Reed Returns with a Large Dose of Nostalgia!

Good to hear ‘news’ from good friend and Prager fan,  Regina Reed.   Look below what she collected for us ‘old timers’ to review:

 

 …
Slow Food & Being Older Than Dirt (a nostalgia piece)
— Unknown Author
‘Someone asked the other day, ‘What was your favorite fast food when you were growing up?’ 
‘We didn’t have fast food when I was growing up,’ I informed him. 
‘All the food was slow.’ 
‘C’mon, seriously.  Where did you eat?’ 
‘It was a place called Home,” I explained!  ‘Mom cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn’t like what she put on my plate I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.’ 

By this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn’t tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. 
But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it : 
Some parents NEVER owned their own house, never wore Levis, never set foot on a golf course, never traveled out of the country or had a credit card. 
In their later years they had something called a revolving charge card.  Their card was good only a Sears & Roebuck.  Either way, there is no Roebuck anymore.  Maybe he died. 

My parents never drove me to soccer practice. This was mostly because we never had heard of soccer.  I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow).
We didn’t have a television in our house until I was 9.  It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at midnight, after playing the national anthem and a poem about God; it came back on the air at about 6 a.m.  And there was usually a locally produced news and farm show on, featuring local people. 

I never had a telephone in my room.  The only phone in the house was in the living room and it was on a party line.  Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn’t know weren’t already using the line. 
Pizzas were not delivered to our home but milk was. 
All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers  I delivered a newspaper, 7 days a week.  It cost 7 cents a paper, of which I got to keep 2 cents.  I had to get up at 6 a.m. every morning.  On Saturday, I had to collect the 49 cents from my customers.  My favorite customers were the ones who gave him 50 cents and told me to keep the change.  My least favorite customers were the ones who seemed to never be home on collection day. 
Movie stars kissed with their mouths shut.  At least, they did in the movies.  There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or anything really offensive or disgusting. 
Growing up isn’t what it used to be, is it…?
How many do you remember? 
Head lights dimmer switches on the floor board. 
Ignition switches on the dashboard. 
Car heaters mounted on the inside of the fire wall. 
Real ice boxes. 
Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards. 
Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner. 
Using hand signals for cars without turn signals. 
Blackjack chewing gum
Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water
Candy cigarettes
Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles 
Coffee shops or diners with table side juke  boxes 
Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers 
Party lines on the telephone
Newsreels before the movie 
P.F.  Flyers
Butch wax 
TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning (there were only 3 channels… [if you were fortunate]) 
Peashooters 
Howdy Doody 
45 RPM records 
S&H green stamps 
Hi-fi’s
Hop-a-Long Cassidy
Buster Brown
Metal ice trays with lever
Mimeograph paper
Blue flashbulb
Roller skate keys
Roy Rogers
Cork popguns
Drive-in Movies (a.k.a. ‘passion pits’)
Wash tub wringers
Extinct Car Brands (40s & 50s): Nash, Kaiser, Packard, De Soto, Willy’s, Edsel, Studebaker, and Tucker to name a few.

If you remembered 18-27 of the 35 items:  You’re probably older than dirt…!

  1. Ghr, I have to agree you and I may be older than dirt since we can score 100% on this quiz. By the way, how are you? Well, I hope.

    • cjack….Good to hear from you….I had knee replacement surgery late last year. Recovery has been very slow….and uncomfortable. However, Spring may ‘spring’ a return of energy.
      Maneuverings of my computer service have made disappear our previous communications system some time ago….claiming “improvement” in communication, I’m sure.
      Did you ever listen to “Ma Perkins” or “Lorenzo Jones and His Wife, Bell”? ….or “I Love a Mystery”?
      My first auto I bought was a 1946 Nash Ambassador in 1953.

      Keep me, us readers posted on how you feel and think about Our Donald’s 100 days in the White House. I fell in love with him the moment he said “Only Rosie O’Donnell” as answer to the insulting claims “feminist”, Megyn Kelly dumped on him during the Fox GOP Debate that August 6, 2015. I wasn’t fond of his lifestyle and name, the 45 years of it I was aware of at that time through the press. I knew he was very, very bright. His actions up to that moment had made me wonder what he was after in life beyond stardom and accumulating money, knowing his enemies would thrill at any news, true or false, to abuse him.. After researching for about a week, discovering his Ivana still spoke highly of him, the folks who worked for him in Trump Tower spoke highly of him, I began follow him sans attitude…..But, he kept winning and winning like he said he would.
      Think of all the garbage thrown at him, Melania and his family which has continued to this day by sleazy cat Democrats saboteurs…
      Be certain to review CBC…Canada’s state corp. and its coverage of the election that November 8th evening. Sixty or so ‘reporters’, ‘experts’, ‘lawyers’, ‘reporters’ etc…. for eleven hours from beginning to end smeared with whatever they could use to smear against Donald and all of us “Nazis” who voted for him.
      I noticed quite early I have never, never loved a political candidate in my life……until Our Donald…with what he had to endure winning with his remarkable determination, confidence in himself and his allies, and experience being a gutsy big time guy who adored his family, was inspired by tragedy from an older brother he loved who had killed himself……and most obvious DONALD TRUMP EXUDED A POWERFUL LOVE FOR HIS COUNTRY…..the one and only ‘star’ of the political show that reeked energy determined to do something about it……WHAT SAY YOU, GOOD COLLEAGUE! Not only did he beat crooked hillary, he’s putting an end to Obama’s hate America ‘decade’ of deceit and plots..

  2. Coincidentally ghr, I also had internet problems with my service provider. My pc suffered some trauma from the incompetence of its remote technicians on distant shores who couldn’t get their tasks straight so I dismissed them and installed a better-quality integrated modem/router, set my own wireless network connections, ran a number of software repairs and restored my files; but I’m still attempting to recover much of our discussion group’s key commentaries that may have been erased by these turkeys.

    So I am back and much elated to know you are on the watch to keep the nasty DNC toads out of the pond. I just cannot believe the extent to which they have gone to attack the President and his loved ones, and his cabinet. That DNC coalition of endless radicals funded by George Soros and incited by Obama and Bonnie and Clyde Clinton are bent on taking down the lawful government of the United States, yet dumb America refuses to be educated. How can dumb folks like Maxine Waters be elected to the US Congress? Common Core, that’s why! Our kids are under-educated and as uninformed as their liberal teachers, who click their fingers at rap music drinking ‘Starbucks Latte’ on the NYC subway on the way home to their rent-controlled apartments to a TV dinner and another dose of nonsense dispensed by liberal media.

    Speaking of another topic of interest, that is the shakeup and shakedown at Fox News; it is heart wrenching to know that the Irish Leprechaun who every Christmas, and on many other occasions, stood up to the hordes who are trying to destroy Conservative American values and ideals, will no longer be at Fox News. Though the Irish Leprechaun may have often blown some hot air and tip-toed back on forth with Obama on the Factor, he did take ‘Sir’ Rupert’s Fox News network to high financial ground erasing the financial beating the old newspaper mogul took in the UK when the gossip laden “Sun” was driven out of business. In the end it was sad to see the Irish Leprechaun’s ego so out of control which permitted the salivating liberals to use what may have been unfounded allegations of sex harassment, to send him back to the dog patch in Long Island. Oh my, the gender war was on as soon as the ‘feminazis’ began to taste blood as ‘Sir’ Rupert started doling out the cash to appease the gold digging vixens at Fox. I tell you these ‘slick’ vixens in the media have found a way to intimidate the insecure ‘hombres’ with a wink, high gloss manicure, crimson lips, smooth leather garbs, and a shake of the tail; then when their careers begin to slide all they have to do is shout “sexual harassment” knowing the foolish old men will pay up to keep things quiet. I say call their bluff by taking them to court to unveil the evidence. Heck, sexual harassment can go both ways, right?

    Though they say one of the young Murdoch boys is married to someone who works in some corner under the auspices of the Clinton Foundation, let’s hope ‘Sir’ Rupert’s two young bulls will defend our conservative value and ideals by raising Fox News above the mundane; let them not allow the morally misguided to lead Fox News and the nation; we have enough bad behavior in the liberal media, already.

    Lastly, our man Trump is moving on steadily as he promised, yet there are so many croaking frogs in that dirty DC swamp to deal with. However, Beijing is buying American coal and beefing up its army at the border with North Korea; ISIS is being decimated; Moscow is not as vociferous; and Tehran is beginning to mumble. I tell you that big bomb did send a warning. It may be that the overfed lunatic in Pyongyang is not going to last much longer, but let’s check with Vegas and London for the odds.

    Keep up the good work, ghr. Best regards, always.
