Work without feeling inferior. It don't take much for a boss to replace you for GOOD/BAD reasons. It seems that being hard to replace anymore is obsolete, When in fact, maybe to easy.

Leave the house to go play first thing in the morning and not come home until the street lights came on without your parents worrying about you getting snatched.

Ride your bike without a helmet.

Make your little brother have to actually get up and change the channel to a different cartoon.

Stand up on the floor in the back of a car. Who wore seatbelts?

Welcome to America, home of constitutionally guaranteed free speech. You might ask the f-bomber if he or she kisses their mother goodnight with that mouth.

Park your pickup in the school parking lot with two shotguns in the window rack and no one even questioned it or tried to steal them.

I sure do. Dad always went to the local Shell station and I remember them giving away Matchbox cars, pro sports team drinking glasses and presidential collector coins. This was roughly 40 years ago.

I have a rocking chair in my living room that my mother got with S&H Green stamps. I can remember going with her to get it on Cleveland Ave.

I also have a 12 ga shotgun my grandmother got for my grandfather with coupons from soap, but that was way before I was born.

I remember when Sears had a toy department, sold records and tapes, had a Boy Scout shop, a candy store and a cafeteria. They were also the first major company to introduce digital cash registers.

Sears used to sell guns also.
They were marketed under the "JC Higgins" name but made by all the major manufactures of the time, and privately labeled for Sears.

"Sears has everthing" was their motto.

Damn, I'm old.
