I remember seeing ice and milk delivered by horse drawn wagons. Anyone else remember that?

I have lost 6 pounds. Though I am not trying as hard as I feel I should I am very happy about the weight loss. Good luck to all of you.

Right....garter belts. But I didn't wear them, my mom got me a panty girdle with the garters attached. I was in 6th grade when I began wearing one cause that's when I started wearing stockings!

When gas stations ran out of gas, and they still pumped it for you, while cleaning your windows, and checking your oil. The gas was less than $1 a gallon.

Going down to the mall to see a demonstration on cassettes. Having my science teacher bring in an Atari, and show us the future, and tell us that the computers we heard about on TV, would one day be in every household. We laughed of course. He was obviously a nut job.

When T.V.s were either 100 lbs, or 13" black and white's, and they all had tubes in them, and could be worked on.

When you could actually fix your own car.

I remember having to pull over on the highway or street to scrape off the windshield cause there was no defrost or windshield washer fluid. Sometimes I lowered the car window and reached around with the scraper at stop signs or stop lights.

I remember disposable paper dresses. My aunt sent me one in 1967 and remember it being uncomfortable. Wish I saved it now, they are collectibles on Ebay.

I remember the iceman delivering blocks of ice for our "icebox" and his cart was powered by a horse. (1948, I was 2)

I remember door-to-door peddlers. Fullerbrush and Watkins salesmen, an old lady who sold handmade doll clothes and a man who tried to buy things for low prices who showed us the holes in the soles of his shoes to prove he walked everywhere and couldn't afford new shoes.

I remember local "gas wars" when stations would lower their prices to get all the business. Sometimes the 25cent gas went down to 15 cents a gallon.
