Comments: Back When I Was a Kid... In the Stone Ages

.... bwhahhah..... I can't believe that are quoting me and my corndog analogy of 1980s cinema...... that just makes my day.....

.... hell, it may be be the best corndog you've ever had, but in the end, it is STILL just a corndog.....

It comes up all the time. It's so dang funny.

BTW, they hated that corn dog. They thought it was the worst corn dog they'd ever had. Airplane was good. Weird Science was not. In their eyes.

Think back a few years to when we moved to Florida. The drinking age was 18, and it was perfectly legal to drink alcohol while you were driving. Many liquor stores had drive up windows so you could buy a martini to go and drive off drinking it. Ah, the good old days....

Dad- We were just talking about that during the 4th of July. That Package and Lounge that is/was across the street from the neighborhood had a drive through window.

I was telling my neice and nephews over Easter that the drinking age was 19 when I was in college. They looked at me stunned... But, that was only in the state of Florida. When y'all moved up to Michigan for those couple years, I was at the grocery store where TN bagged groceries and I went to buy a bottle of wine and they the age was 21. Believe it or not, since TN was there and explained to the cashier who he knew, that I wasn't being a jerk, but really didn't know the drinking age was higher there, she let me buy it. (It was a wine for cooking.)

Wine for cooking? We've NEVER cooked with wine. Nice try!

*I* use wine for cooking. They don't sell liquor at Kroeger! And I don't drink wine or beer... blech.

The 80s rocked...I don't care what anyone says. And I remember a drive-thru liquor store on Navy...was it The Flight Deck? Underage purchasing at its finest then.

St. Gerard, who, like the Savior,
loved children so tenderly
and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death, listen to us who are pleading for this sick child.

We thank God for the great gift of this young boy
and ask Him to restore him to health
if such be His holy will.

This favor, we beg of you
through your love for all children and mothers.

Some 80's movies rock, some are just god awful... Gymkata for example.

First, prayers for the young man and all who care about him. I hope there is a miracle and he pulls through without any problems.

As for the smoking and non-smoking sections, it really brought back memories. One time, My mom, my sister and I took stopped at Fudpuckers in Destin. When the waitress asked smoking or non-smoking, my sister and I said non-smoking at the same time my mom said smoking. So, she sat my sister and I in one booth and my mom in the one next to us. Our family has a strange sense of humor. We stayed seated like that and joked and harassed each other the entire time. To add to the situation, Mom didn't have her glasses and couldn't read the menu. So, we ordered for her but when they brought the food out they only brought mine and my sister's. There was a group of young navy guys sitting in the booth on the other side of mom. We had been talking and cutting up with them the entire and had explained the seating situation. So, when mom didn't get her food immediately, they shared their food with her. She had been adopted and we were disowned. We had a blast. We still talk about it.

I remember smoking and non-smoking! Wow...we are getting really old! ;-)

More prayers said for the boy.

Thankfully, NC went non-smoking for all restaurants a couple years back - shocking for a state so traditionally tied to tobacco revenues. Makes eating out much more enjoyable!! Don't think SC is the same however...not sure.

Ah well I remember the days of smoking being everywhere including in stores. I don't miss walking out of a restaurant and smelling like a cigarette. Not one bit. heh.

Prayers for the young man. How very awful. *sigh*

The actual Bend Bend style is a lot much more luxurious as well as intended for clients that like to end up being because showy within their design since the manufacturer

Prayers for the nearly drowned (and I see from a later post that he's doing better).

Another thing they'll have trouble believing is that airplanes used to have a little doily where your head went because otherwise the grease men put in their hair would ruin the upholstery.
