We all want to see Audrey he sounds adorable!

Some of the other Gypsies and I were talking about times gone by and was reminising on things we experienced or saw that the now generation have never seen. Like black and white TV, milk in a bottle, cloth diapers ect. What do yall remember? I had steam radiator heat growing up, but DH heated with a coal stove in the basement. Sticking tongue out

Ya I saw my first Black and White TV in 1951. I also remember how we could go shopping and for $50 we ate like kings and queens; that was shopping for 6 for 2 weeks. The movie matinee on Saturday was $.25 cents and for another 25 cents my sisters would get a sack of penny candy at the corner market on the way to the movies. Soda was 10 cents a cup. Popcorn was a nickle a bag.

To take the bus to school it cost .15cents and a transfer. So for all my sister and me it was 60 cents. It was 5 miles to school and there were times we had to walk. That was fun....not...especially if it was raining.

A Chuck roast was 25 cents a lb for a long time and was what momma used to make pot roast and stew from. Today that same cut of meat is up there with the so called better cuts of meat.

Yep and it was nothing to use 5lbs of flour every day for bisquits for our crew and all deserts were made from scratch, no store bought goodies at our house. Big Grin I still get a craving for chocolate gravy over hot bisquits. Thats what we had for supper when all the other food was gone. Hurray!

I love Tomato Gravy. Never had it til I married my Southern husband. Hubby says he has eaten lots of Chocolate gravy too. He is from a large family 12 kids. There were only 3 of us.
I remember black and white tv. I also remember using an old "Outhouse"
We ate lots of "beans & taters"
We had a wood stove and mama even cooked on one for a while before we moved to town.

I remember the smell of home made bread from the kitchen. The taste of it sliced and made into a sandwich for me...back then I had a compulsion of eating mayo and onion sandwiches with pickled cucumbers. Oh what a treat that was.

Fresh pies made with harvested strawberries, peach cobbler from the peaches we gleaned from the orchards, and the trips to pick roadside asparagus.

Dad's fishing trips and all the trout and salmon that mom canned for winter.
Each deer season we had venison, fresh and mom would can it too.

I remember these times as happy, carefree days....sometimes I wish I could go back there... Smiling

I think we all do, LaVonne. The joy of being a kid. My DH used to tell my kids "your job is to be a kid and have fun."

I have my grandmother's fine china. It's a beautiful Martha Washington pattern. One day my mom was hugging a plate. Then she told me... "I remember... momma would send us to the movies with a dime. It would be a double feature and you got a plate, too. If it was a scary movie and someone dropped the plate, everyone would holler and clap."

So much for the fine china. Hilarious!

Mule never tried any tomatoe gravy but have heard it was good. What about wringer washers? My sister got her hair caught in that thing one day and bout snatched it all out Rolling on the floor laughing I kept up the ironing ugggg, pillow cases,curtains and even underware Whats that all about Hilarious! One day Mom was gone and I decided to sneek a smoke. Well there wasn't a match anywhere. Well I'll tell ya straight up you can't light a cigarette on an iron I puffed on that thing until my ears caved in. Rolling on the floor laughing

I'm a Charlie's girl, too!
I remember when those Sat. movies were only a nickle! We didn't know what mayo was, and walked 2 miles every day to school. Biscuits and gravy , ham and eggs every morning, till we ran out of our own farm raised ham, then it was shoulder and bacon. I remember the "outhouse", too, Charleen/! I had many a pretty dress made from feed sacks, we would argue who would get them! We always had a huge garden, and raised our own chickens and pigs. We always sold the calves, though. I made pets out of all the cute little pink pigs! And 50 cents? you couldn't find 50 cents! My daddy was a hunter and fisherman, so we always had plenty of fish and wild game. So we were poor, but we ate pretty darned good! I'm older than most of you, so I can remember!

Yeah, I remember mayo, lettuce and tomato sandwiches growing up...bologna was a treat. Blinking We knew the money for groceries was gone when we had oatmeal and toast and cocoa for breakfast and supper. There were 5 kids in my family.

When I started driving, gas was 18 cents a gallon...by the time i graduated high school it had gone up to 25 cents. Cigarettes were 27 cents a pack and if you bought them from a vending machine there were three bright new pennies under the cellophane.

We got our first TV in 1952 when I was one y/o. Dad got it for Mom for Mother's Day and it was huge.

We got a swivel black and white inherited from my GF in I would say probably 1957, before that we listened to cool stories on the radio. We woke up to Farmer Brown every morning hollering get up you lazy heads! We played with holla hoops,hopscotch,roller skates and my favorite the pogo stick I could keep that thing going for an hour Big Grin We would get with our friends and hunt four leaf clovers or play marbles or just lay in the grass and make figures out of the pretty white summer clouds that rolled by. Hurray! I still eat mator sandwiches and peanut butter and banana too Big Grin
