When Life Was Fun (Part 2)

An email to YellowStoneFly from a close and dear friend, Idaho fly fisher and generally good guy. I thank him for sharing. PS-In two parts due to the length.

 
How Many Of These Do You Remember?
Candy cigarettes...
Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water  inside...
Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles...
Coffee shops with Table Side Jukeboxes...
Blackjack, Clove, and Teaberry chewing gum...
Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard  stoppers...
Newsreels before the movie...
Telephone numbers with a word prefix...(Yukon 2-601).  Party lines...
Peashooters...
45 RPM records...
78 RPM records...
Green Stamps...
 
 
 
Mimeograph paper...
The Fort Apache Play Set...
Do You Remember a Time When Decisions were made by going...'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, 'Do Over!'?
'Race issue' meant arguing about who ran the fastest?
Catching The Fireflies Could Happily Occupy An Entire Evening?
It wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best Friends'...
Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a Slingshot?
Saturday morning cartoons were NOT 30-minute commercials for action figures?
Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles?
The Worst Embarrassment was being picked last for a team?
War was a CARD GAME?
Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?
Taking drugs meant orange flavored CHEWABLE ASPIRIN?
Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?
When most high school graduates could not only READ THIS, BUT UNDERSTAND THIS AS WELL!

If you can remember most or all of these, then You Have Lived!!!!!!!
Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their 'Grown-Up' Life..
I Double-Dog-Dare-Ya!
 
Tight lines, hard takes, huge fish and remember the "Bucket List".
