I dream of Jeannie, F Troop, Dobie Gillis, Dukes of Hazzard, Marcus Welby M.D., Patty Duke Show, Little House on the prairie, and The Waltons. Wagon Train and the marine show that the lead was Gomer Pyle. Star Wars movies. Silver alumimnum xmas tress with a color wheel. Walter Cronkite, Hugh Downs, Johhn Carson, Merv Griffen, Huntley/Brinkley report, they were newscasters. Evil Knievel, Spectacular Bid, the racehorse. Lava Lamps, and I think they called the lights black lights.

Tiki dolls, or statues, little wood ones. The room dividers that were beads hanging down in the doorways. I don't know what model cars these were are makes, but the ones with the big wings or fins on the side going to the back. VW Bugs and vans, hippie mobiles.Bean bag chairs, Marijuana was not used for medicinal purposes. China Beach , Scooby Doo, Mr. Magoo cartoons. Bugs bunny, the roadrunner, Yosemite Sam and Daffy Duck.

This would not pass the politically correctness of today!!! LOL

To hear my grandmother tell me about the horse that used to take her and her siblings to school in the morning. The horse just knew where the school was and would take the cart load of kids to school without direction and would come back and pick them up later.

I'm old enough to remember how creeped out I was by Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video as a kid and now later in life creeped out about him for entirely different reasons.

I'm old enough to remember when boys had a disagreement they'd take it outside after school and the loser went home with a bloody nose, not to the morgue with a bullet hole.

i remember my parents getting a landline phone at age 10...i hated it, scared me to talk on the phone..i remember black and white TV, only 3 channels, and it wasnt available 24 hours either!!
I still have all my 45s and LPs, i still drool over the thought of Elvis, i played outside (and away from the house so as to avoid additional chores...lol) as much/as often as possible, there was no such thing as stranger danger in our small community, the local shop closed at 5pm every night and wasnt open on Sundays, we wore school uniforms and accepted the fact that they were gross and unfashionable, we respected teachers/elders, etc...you dealt with problems by duking it out behind the bike shed after school, you thought the opposite sex were gross and had cooties until you were mid teens, you understood that not everyone was going to win a prize..if you excelled you got rewarded, if not..you lost..but you moved on with it...we all had small jobs (paper route for me..ugh...but it taught me a lot!!)..oh my gosh, i sound like an old fogey, but i sure miss those days...no computers, no cell phones, we did have manual typewriters, then electric ones, and then later we moved on to word processors)..wow, i feel so dated....
