    OH MY GOD.  The party lines.  Remember people who would just sit there and pretend they were not there and listen into your conversations?

    There are still drive-in theaters. I've recently been to one called the Glen Drive-In near Glens Falls in upstate New York.

  • Driving 2,500 mi. to see a movie isn't something I've done in a while.  :)  

    But you're right ... there still are  some drive-in theaters.  I understand that the great state of Texas has thirteen.  They're only 1,200 mi. away. :))

    The Glen is within 15 miles of Lake Luzerne, where I've spent summer vacation time. It was an easy drive.

    The local 'root beer stand' is for sale. They have been unable to find carhops on Saturday nights, so they close the place down at 3pm.  Nice, clean facility. $375,000.

    Everything I did was much cooler back then than it is now, due to my outlook.

    After you do something over and over and over, it looses it's sparkle.

    Hop Scotch doesn't do it for me no more

  • A band of we youngsters riding dirtbikes out on the roads.  The roads were pothole ridden trails around here back then.
