Remember when that was a thing?
Getting cable tv.
Tuesday night ABC TV - Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley.
Family get together to watch Hee Haw and eat pizza.
Playing outside with friends till it was dark - baseball, bikes, hide seek.
Listening to baseball on the radio, it was rarely on TV except Saturdays.
Family lunch at Grandmas every Sunday after church.
Climbing our cranberry tree, building a tree house.
Earning money mowing grass and shoveling snow.
Our bike rides were ridiculously far. We didn’t have cell phones of GPS. We would use church steeples and water towers as guides. Got lost once and I was terrified.
Fishing all day. Getting horrible sun burns.
Getting stuff at Consumers Distributing1
Saturday morning cartoons and when cheating at a pvp game was slightly unplugging the other controller when your buddy went to take a leak? Not that i did that to the NES controllers...honest. Oh boy i can just imagine the social justice warriors running for safe spaces if Big Johnson shirts came back.1
Little house on the prairie4
Theater of the Mind0
Asking a girl out on a date face to face. Not by text or social media apps.
Full service gas stations.1
Corporal Pubishment. I got the board quite a few times.
Getting slapped across the face for dropping an F Bomb in front of a guys wife and daughter.0

Apparently still a thing... I was prank called at work not too long ago while school was out. However, the kid had no idea what *67 was (hides you on caller id). I think he just told me I was going to get fired, and then hung up before the giggling started. What ever happened to the old classics like asking if my refrigerator was running? Or pretending to sell me some stupid crap to see how long they could keep me on the phone for? Do they even use an actual phone book anymore, or just look up yellow pages online? It's defiantly a lost art.0
Having a hand written address book, or having to remember people's phone numbers. These days I just go find "mom" or "dad" and hit send...3
Good sitcoms, family friendly tv, when cop and doctor shows weren't flooding things.0
Remember when solider boy when a thing or on fleek or squaaa.
Or actually any of those stupid words I can't keep up with.1
Remember having tv antennas before cable became more available and then when you had cable staring at the scrambled Cinemax to hopefully see boobs?2

Growing up our cars never had working AC so it was the windows down or nothing. Even now I'd rather just wind the window down and we've had working ac for nearly 20 years in our cars now lol. As for lead the cars got good mileage with that until they took it out. Remember when cars had giant engine compartments animals could get into? As much as i hate new cars that's a nice touch.0

mIRC, ICQ, BBS chat rooms
Accepting that someone you met online didn't have a photo on their computer because they needed to go to Kinkos and get it "scanned in"...or accepting they had only 1 photo to share, from 3 years ago...2
