  2. You really missed out Rob. When I was 5-6 years old we had a 4-party line. Our ring was two longs and a short. It was really great fun listening-in on the other three folks 🙂
  3. I thought I'd repost this for all the new "Seniors" on the forum. And for all the other "Senior" folks who may not have seen it. Older Than Dirt Quiz : Count all the ones that you actually remember, not the ones you were told about. Ratings at the bottom. 1. Black Jack chewing gum 2. Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water 3. Candy cigarettes 4. Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles 5. Coffee shops or diners with table-side jukeboxes 6. Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers 7. Party lines on the telephone 8. Newsreels before the movie 9. P.F. Flyers 10. Butch wax (that was our hair product) 11. TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning. 12. Peashooters 13. Howdy Doody 14. 45 RPM records 15. S&H green stamps 16. Hi-fi's 17. Metal ice trays with a lever 18. Mimeograph paper 19. Blue flashbulb 20. Packards 21. Roller skate keys 22. Cork popguns 23. Drive-in movies 24. Studebakers 25. Wash tub wringers If you remembered 0-5 = You're still young. If you remembered 6-10 = You are getting older. If you remembered 11-15 = Don't tell your age. If you remembered 16-25 = You're older than dirt!
  4. Indeed, Let The Good Time Roll. Here's a walk down Bourbon Street. Been there, done that (several times). Add it to your bucket list. You'll never regret it. P.S. There's one thing they don't show though. That's the babes flashing their boobs to get more necklaces thrown to them.
  5. It's been too many years ago for me to remember but it was probably one of these:
  6. Scott Eggert, the keyboard player, has a PhD in musicology. He's the "driver" here. My son assures me that these covers are exactly the same as the originals, note-by-note.
  7. Graduation night 1960. The love of my life had moved on but I held her one last time for one last dance. After that dance I told her I loved her and kissed her on the cheek. I never saw her again. But the music lives on:
  8. Can a proud Dad throw one in here? My son, Scott, plays bass guitar. His friend, also Scott, plays the keyboard. These two guys go back 41 years. They started their first group in 1982. Just a couple of kids (like 13 years old). All they do now is Steely Dan covers. The video is lousy but I hope you get the idea.. Doug
  9. No doubt. Lincoln logs. Put those together with my American Flyer train and the world was good. 1950 was a really great year.
  10. He obviously forgot Landing Rule #1.........Remove cabin crew from knee!
  11. When my wife and I were first married we lived in a dumpy apartment in San Francisco. One building, three apartments. We were in the middle. All I can say to describe the experience is hookers to the right and hookers to the left. On the first of the month there was no place to park within two blocks. That said, there were a couple of babes on the right that made me wish I was still single.....🙂
