Remember when

Old School 1951

Remember when you had to hold your hand under the spindle on your car record player to keep records from dropping if you hit a bump? Boys that didn't have record players would ride around slinking down toward the middle of the seat to make out like they had one. The girl had to get in to know for sure LOL

Do you remember when kids were allowed to smoke in school and anyone could buy smokes?

And you had to put a penny (or two) on top of it to keep it from skipping?

Remember when you had to carefully place the needle on your record player precisely in the groove on the album to listen to your favorite song over and over?

I had no idea that we had a Montgomery Ward!! LOL

I actually worked at Electric Avenue in Myrtle Beach when I was late-teens / early 20s, which was a division of Montgomery Ward. I quickly learned that they had TONS of lawsuits against them. They would file bankruptcy, wipe out the lawsuits, then come back with a different name

Do you all remembers Ghost Town in the Sky? I loved that place when I was a kid! I just saw a video from one of the "gunfighters" that worked there; turns out that he was also the "he gotta real purty mouth" guy in Deliverance!

Weird to think that I probably met the "purty mouth" guy
