JJ's sub shop below the glass onion, nighttime christmas shopping on 4th ave before there were malls and the window lights reflecting on the snowy sidewalks, majorettes at the high school games before they were phased out, waking up on the 1st morning after school let out for the summer,
collecting baseball cards, buying garbage pail kid stickers, turning in glass soda bottles for refunds to buy candy,super ball,splitting the sides of the bottom part of jeans and sewing extra material in to make larger bell bottoms.
