Make a trip to New Jersey. That's all they have there.
And not only would they pump the gas, they’d also check the oil and radiator, top off the tires, and clean the windshield.
You know you’re getting old when the cougars aren’t interested anymore.
Here they hide inside the building, behind a plexiglass shield, with a small hole cut in it.
Aye yi, yi, yiiii
I am the ___________ ____________.
Here’s the tricky part!
I have one of those and used it in collage. It lives next to the E6-B now....
You must have gone to an engineering "collage".
My wife went to collage college.
Oh wait..... I got that reference...
Yup, you've cracked the code!
Mine is made of Whale bone.
I wonder where that thing is?
Pedal car hell, I had one of these. Cast iron. Musta weighed 50 lbs, which is a bunch when you're like 5. In the winter it would live in the basement. We'd push it as fast as our little legs would go and smash it into a steel lally column. Rang throughout the house, but never put so much as a dimple in it.
BSME University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus.
My first job, at 16, at the local Esso station! Summer of '69, when I didn't get to go to Woodstock ...
We just had a tour of USAF academy cadets. In years gone by, all the cadets were clean cut. Now with hair and facial hair standards relaxed and changed, a couple of them looked they just stepped out of a Bob Marley video. Plus they were younger than my twins.
My baby sister applied for Medicare today.
HS Class of 81 would be boomers. Boomers areb orn 46 - 64
Class of mid 80s would be Gen X. Born 65 - 80
Class of 79 for HS or college?
Premium was .299 per gallon
Uuuh, there was still a manual control on the TV, you didn't have to use the remote.
The Zenith remotes are audio at very high frequencies. The button struck basically a tuning fork. One evening, my parents were going out, and all of a sudden the channels would change. Sometimes one, sometimes many.
We finally tracked it down to a belt my mother was wearing. It was a belt of metal rings. And there was a dangling loose end. The rings clinked would change the channel.
I was working for HP when I got my first HP-41, when they first came out. A few years later, I sold it to a buddy while in USAF UPT. Had a friend who still worked for HP get me an HP-41CV to replace it.
I still have a couple of HP-41CXs around.
You know there is an iPhone app that emulates the HP-41CX. It even looks like the -41 keyboard. But better, as it has a display bar that shows the values in the stack.
Your mom was a fashion plate!
....If you can identify these characters...
Clarabelle, Howdy Doody, and Buffalo Bob!
You know you're getting old when a thread about the earliest momentous event you can remember quickly gets filled with things that happened when you were in college.
I knew of one lady who’d lost her remote but found that dropping a certain number knitting needle on the parquet floor would change channels and a different one would turn the TV on/off.
Oh man. I’m resisting. I’m really trying to not name 3 politicians. …. Whew, wiping brow, I was able to resist.
You know you're getting old when your entertainment was the radio show, "Stella Dallas".
You also know it when your 1st tv pilot hero was Bob Cummings,
And your 1st true love was pilot Penny on Sky King
It was from Bob Cummings I learned that pilots (especially photographer-pilots) get the hot chicks.
Actually my first pilot hero was probably Gadabout Gaddis, but I caught onto Sky King around the same time (reruns, I think) in the 60s.
Penny was cute, but I always thought of her as a spoiled brat.
My first true (tv) love was Emma Peel.
Even as an 8 yr old I always said I wanted to see Emma "Peel"
For me it was Barbara Feldon (Agent 99).
Watching the video versions of Death Valley Days, and recognizing the theme bugle call from the '30s, when I originally heard the show on the radio.
I recognize some of the actual stories, too. Ronald Reagan did not do the old audio version, though. As host Old Ranger, he does sound remarkably similar to the old Old Ranger he replaced.
Pfft. There was only one...
