Count all the ones that you remember not the ones you were told about.

 Ratings at the bottom.

 1.Candy cigarettes
 2.Coffee shops with tableside juke boxes
 3.Home milk delivery in glass bottles
 4. Party  lines on the telephone
 5.Newsreels before the  movie
 6. TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show
     and were there until TV shows started again in the morning.
     (there were 3 channels,if you were lucky)
 8. Howdy Doody
 9. 45 RPM records
11. Metal ice trays with lever
12. Blue flashbulb
13.Cork popguns
14. Studebakers
15. Wash tub wringers

 If you remembered 0-3 = You're still young
 If you remembered 3-6 = You are getting older
 If you remembered 7-10  = Don't tell your age,
 If you remembered 11-15 =You're older than  dirt!

Sorry, Guys, but I can't tell how many of these things I remember....because I can't remember if I remember them or not!  Where does that put me on the rating scale?  Don't answer that!!!

Just call me dirt 'cause I remember all those things.  Of Course, Sara always tells me I have a fantastic memory for trivia, but can't remember to put out the trash!

I am glad I am "old as dirt".  With all the things we endured as kids, it's a wonder we made it with all the SAFETY devices this generation must contend.  I am really glad I've made it this long.  Pam Coughenour Riemer

Never thought I'd hear myself say this.  It's sure is great to be older than dirt!  I just thank God everyday that He got me through it.
