I sure do... haven't seen any in years also. Never searched for them on-line...have to add that to my internet waste of time "to do" list. Thinking about giving up smoking, and see where they could help.

Also,remember when you could open a door for a woman when the opportunity should arise (say a store, restaurant etc)... and be told I don't know, just a "thank you"? Just how I was raised. Some of the ladies still occasionally do, I suppose.

But also most of the time they either don't say a word, and then walk by with their noses in the air, is if they were possibly royalty.... Or tend to look at me like "what the heck are doing?" like I was lost in a time machine from days long gone, LOL. But even half of the latter ones do seem to manage a surprised nod and a thank you, though :).

Me too... and when they arrogantly walk through the door that we graciously opened, it's too late to "accidentally" trip them anyway :).... So we may just as well just keep smiling.

Nope, not a cent. Twas a horrible thing of me thinking about tripping them. A shove maybe? Also, just kidding...

And didn't and I didn't realize about the pixie stix, until you mentioned them.

Wonder if they still make Big Chew... the shredded bubble gum that came in the look alike tobacco pouches? That was THE stuff when I played little league. With the huge bubbles we were blowing combined with the oversized helmets... it was a wonder we could even see the baseball to hit it.

There was a place I knew that sold all that stuff, not so long ago. Now it's a Casey's. But you can still find it at Cracker Barrel. I loved the coconut. They have the root beer barrels, circus peanuts, stick candy of all flavors, fudge. All the stuff from when we were kids.

... rolling down the drivers window just about all the way down, with the family, and putting that big old heavy speaker hangin' on the window at the drive-in ...

then the teenage years began and who cares what came over the speakers ... we were makin' out, lol ... the double dates were fun ... or a bunch of us would all bring our cars and pull in together ... Pam and Debbie had a Rambler station wagon we all piled in one time ... their brother was so big we called him Baby Huey ... Man, we had fun at the drive-in ... Remember when?...

I loved the drive in. There's still one out by the lake. And my first car was a Rambler 4 door. I loved that car.
