    Otherwise, count me in for 17.

    I made my own wine, while in college, and it was good and much much better than Boone's Farm.
    I let it be known that for every 5 empty wine bottles, I would fill one up with my Peach Wine.
    One Sunday Morning I found and empty 24 bottle case of...

    Strawberry Boone's Farm

    on my rent house front porch.:clap:

    Blackjack Gum must have been regional. I don't remember that at all. Everything else is a given.

    I know what a Studebaker is, but I never have seen one outside a movie. All that other stuff I've lived, but I'm not that old. I hardly know s#it from Shinola.
    Is Pedro's South of the Border still there?

    knew them all on the list. dad had a 1936 lightning, sold that for a 1922 star that sat on a WWI converted truck frame of a trailer with wood spokes that sears had new tires and tubes and the rubber strap that protects the tube from the wheel chaffing all in stock. then a 1948 alden US one design. then he bought the 1966 alden , but it was still fresh. now it's all old. And i'm old now, but i claim that makes me wise.

    it's a tough sell :)

    Just Friday I asked a customer to fax over a PO. He asked if he could send it by email, as the fax machine was upstairs next to the 8 track player.
    When you think about bottled milk delivered to your house, well you can still get bottled milk delivered to your house, Its just in a bottle that is plastic and you have to order it online from your cell phone.

    And for your listening pleasure:

    I found my thrill on strawberry hill. Then the cookies were tossed. What’s the word...Thunderbird, what’s the price??? 50 Twice. Worst drinking experience of my life. Unfortunately score 17 as well. Old as dirt. Actually only four elements on the periodic table then....Earth, wind, fire and Dert (De).

    We had a Studebaker. I wasn't quite old enough to drive it. I wish I could forget Boone's Farm. Otherwise I don't remember Blackjack Gum, Wax Coke Bottle Candy and Butch Wax. Still comfortably in the "Older than Dirt" designation.
    The old "PushmePullyou."

    You always bite off the head of the bottle, since the base was too much WAX.

    My brother used it for his, Stand Up Bangs, on his crew cut.

    Now you are remembering long gone Sayings!
