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?...

Drive-In theaters were great! When we were young, us kids(sibs)usually wore pajamas because we'd fall asleep way before the movie was over.

When Mom would go out the back door and yell "Greymouser! Dinnertime!"

And I'd yell back "Coming!" and woe to me if I didn't arrive in a few minutes.

As long as I was in yelling distance, I didn't need constant supervision.

But things have changed, I guess.

One in a million or ten million of possible tragedies is the expected now.

Fear of anything and everything is the new norm?

No, it was a lovely shade of pink, inside and out. Best car I ever had. I remember the Boon's Farm Strawberry Hill pretty well, too... I wouldn't touch that stuff with a broomstick now. Been there done that. Did it take you a week to get over the hangover? We liked that and the cherry vodka in 7up. Ahhhh. Good times. LOL

and the "premiums" you would get with the gas--free glasses, plates, coffee mugs, or whatever.

They still have them in Oregon and New jersey, it's against the law to pump your own gas there :)

Yes! and I'm a lady.... It's the young guys who let me keep holding it who need to remember manors...

Sometimes when that happens they even have their girlfriend/wife with them.......neither of them say thank you or even take the door from me. RUDE!

I remember when everyone had manors!

One of my uncles ran a full service 'Phillips 66' gas station in the Texas panhandle in the '60's through the mid '70's. Delivered propane to the local ranchers/farmers to run their huge irrigation systems. Most times he had to 'carry' them on account until their crops had gone to market.
Long days-in a pretty desolate area.

I'm sure. I've heard people around here talk about the same thing--only with tobacco. One lady was telling me that after her parents sold their tobacco crop, he paid off the grocery store, and the dry goods store (pre-walmart, of course) and buy seed for the next year--and they were broke again.....

I can't say that I think those are the "good ole days"

I hear that. My dad carried an account at the local general store that he paid off every couple of weeks.
Before he started getting laborer's jobs with area construction companies through the Union hall, a lot of our income was dependent on the income from our farm's crops. In 1954, the year I was born, the heat and an accompanying drought was so great, the crops burned up in the fields.
Through it all, my dad always paid his bills on time.
