Oki used to get the larger sized ones.(6 inches tall maybe?) and use them for target practice.

I have a huge collection of 45's for my jukebox. It's actually Hubby's, well, it was his grandfather's. A 1954 Wurlitzer, still works too! I do remember 8 tracks too, but don't have any of those left. Just vinyl records.
I only have LP's left. A small handful at that.
Is so awesome you and the hubby still have those (45's).

My 8 tracks were mostly of the band, Ten Year After. My father who liked classical took them to play in his car. Strange.

By the way, welcome back. I too was out for a week.
Say..has anyone seen Troll Doll? Hope she is good and all with the fires out there.

I'll have to vote Lego. We had a cat that would steal them, bat them around the kitchen in the middle of the night, then leave them scattered across the kitchen floor. They were mini Lego mines in the dark, of course the light switch was across the room.

I had every KISS 8-track at one time. The real KISS, when they wore make-up, the first time! I wish I had at least 1 left.

Love it! I'm a huge Allman Brothers fan. Too bad you don't have a player, if the tape would still play. I still have quite a few cassette tapes, but they're not as obsolete as 8-tracks, are they?

My mom bought me the Kiss Destroyer album when I was a kid, it was my first album and looking back I'm surprised she bought that for me, but I scratched it up so bad I used to have to put weights on top of the needled to keep it from skipping lol.

Apple head dolls.:) You took an apple, poked cloves in it for eyes. Made a cut for a mouth and carved a bit to make cheeks and nose. Corn cob and husks for her body. Corn silk for her hair. Set it in a window. As they dried and wrinkled, they "grew old".
Hows about orange and clove closet fresheners? Carved soap bars wrapped in nylon net with sequin eyes for bathroom decoration deodorizers?
In reply to another poster about cranking the engine to start a car....Haha.
Am not that old but I am old enough to remember when only very wealthy people had cars with auto transmissions.
