I'm not gonna be real specific here.

Dirt is old right? Well, I'm older then that.

But age is not about years, its about attitude. By that measure I'm 16.

Well Okay. Maybe mid-twenties. Or thirties. Depends upon the moment.

When my girlfriend arches her finger with 'come hither' I am certainly twenty something. Aren't You?

Re: How old/young are you?

what a great thread. I am surprised it took this long for me to find it.

old enough to remember....

Crew Cuts,
good tennis shoes were PF Flyers,
Dimes and quarters were made out of silver,
Three cent postage stamps,
wearing "beetle boots"
Seeing Elvis movies at the movie theater,
The milkman,
John Glenn orbiting the earth,
7 cent sodas, and nickel ice creams.

I remember when good things were groovy or far out and bad things were a bad trip or a bummer.

I actually had to do chores in order to earn an allowance

Re: How old/young are you?

What would be interesting would be to make the above 60 category a bit more specific.

Sometimes I wonder if I am the only guy, 75+, working in Photoshop.

Re: How old/young are you?

hehe, nice cardmnal. sounds familiar.

i remember when a hershey's bar was a nickel, the original flash gordon was in the movie theatres and i won an official flash gordon flash light with my ticket stub.

i remember when gasoline was 18 cents a gallon and a pack of cigarettes was about 20 cents. i remember seeing a Hudsons automobile driving on our road, the milk man and the bread man coming to our door. i remember a truck having an accident near our house and he spilled his ice that was refrigerating whatever it was he was carrying.

i remember collecting empty bottles and returning them for 2 cents at the store. i remember visiting a friend of the family and having to use an outhouse. i remember visiting the south and seeing the various 'colored' and 'white' signs on bathrooms and drinking fountains. i remember lincoln logs and erector sets and that cardboard boxes were often more fun than the toys that came in them.

i remember soda fountains and that that was something that came 'after church' on sundays. and, i remember that johnny weismuller will always be 'tarzan'. and i remember the original lone ranger, especially the hour long one on the 'origin of the lone ranger'. i remember phil silvers as seargeant bilko and groucho marks on 'you bet your life' and 'pluck your magic twanger, froggy' on the buster brown show. i remember 'queen for a day' and 'howdy doody' and 'kukla, fran and ollie'. and i remember jimmie durante saying 'goodnight mrs. mc gillacuddy, wherever you are' and 'sky king', the original 'lassie', and jack benny telling rochester, his manservant/friend, 'now, cut that out!'.

i remember when detroit still had trolleys and seeing an airplane was quite rare. i remember penny candy and visiting a carpenter who had a bellows for stoking a fire. i remember one room schoolhouses. and i remember listening to 78 rpm records and 33 rpm and listening to fess parker's rendition of 'davy crocket' on that record player.

hehe, boy, what a walk down nostalia lane.

Re: How old/young are you?

For a British selection of reminiscences.

I can remember my brother still had a wartime ration card.

The gaslighter, still came and lit the streetlamps (and snuffed them out in the morning).

We had an outdoor toilet which we shared with nextdoor.

We walked everywhere.

Supermarkets were unheard of, and my mum had a "divvy" card with the local Co-op, and she was on first name terms with ALL the local shopowners.

I knew the names of everyone in our street.

We went weekly to the "matinee" at the local cinema.

I was 10 years old before we got our first TV.

Re: How old/young are you?

Well I'm not that old (33), but I do remember 10p back on empty pop bottles.
Being in the middle of the miners strike riots, as we lived next to a coal mine.
Rag and bone man coming down the street on a horse and cart.
Street parties, where everybody joined in and had fun.
Being scared to death of the police (unlike it is now).
Getting my first Raleigh Chopper bike with gears
Getting my first computer )and I still have it)
And best of all a 10p mix from the sweet shop
