Not older than all dirt, just older than some.

I watched Rocky & Bullwinkle (before it became The Bullwinkle Show), Merrie Melodies Cartoons on various shows, Captain Kangaroo when I was very young, The Little Rascals, The Mickey Mouse Club, Bozo the Clown, Howdy Doody... I even remember watching Amos & Andy.

By the time HR Puffenstuff and the Banana Splits came along, I wasn't into that stuff (my younger sisters were) but I stayed faithful to Rocky and Bullwinkle and Bugs Bunny for many years.

I can verify that having attended some of the "Bugs and Brew" parties (early 80s I think) on Saturday mornings after night shift at the house he and others were renting.

This thread is dredging up all kinds of memories....... some not so good.  Like having to watch Sonny and Cher, or worse Donny and Marie :o  And I thought I had buried them somewhere soooooooo deep that they would never again haunt me LOL.

Winter/Spring 1979. Millstone. Good parties. Even started attracting some locals (attractive ones, too!)

If I remember right Black Point was a summer rental community for vacationers, but then I am surprised anyone at those parties remembers anything.  ;) There was a St Patty's Day party that outage that just about wiped out the HP staff for the next day. If "the road" was like that again there would be more people wanting to travel (alas, fitness for duty prevails).

I can still remember waking up to the sound of the phone ringing and realizing immediately that it was dark outside which meant that nightshift had already started... and all four of us in the house were nightshifters. I heard Bob answer the phone, not with "Hello" but with "We'll be right there." If I remember correctly, over 90% of nightshift was either late or absent that night. We were told we couldn't have any more parties... which made for a great laugh at the Bugs 'n' Brew the following Saturday morning. (It was a force of nature. Even if we had cancelled it, the people would have shown up.)

Sorry Marssim.... but 1959 already looks like a long time ago to me and I still feel young.  BTW  I was born in 61.

I'm one of those kids you're mother told you that you did not want to be;

Remember? the ones who used to ride their bikes behind the mosquito truck and play blind bike tag in the billows of DDT fog?!?!?! :P





Our whole neighborhood used to line up to chase the fog truck... nobody knew any better back then.
Funny, most of my neighbors from back then are still alive. Those that passed succumbed to unrelated things...
Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

The mosquito man, playing with mercury,crimping split shot lead sinkers with my teeth t, blowing up gi joe and my big jim action adventure set ( with tent and alligator) with firecrackers, and oh yea, cherry bombs and real m-80s. For less than a dollar you could by a small bomb. And the inevitable taste of leaded gas when siphoning. I'd probably be a lot smarter if it wasn't for the good ole days. Mercury has a distinct smell and is a lot of fun until you drop it in the dirt and cant recover it all.  Aaaaaaah, the environment ,the environment!

I am beginning to grow fond of stating "At the turn of the century yadda, yadda, yadda,....", or "In the last century yadda, yadda, yadda,...." or something along those lines,....heheheheheh,....

 :P

Which Century would you be talking about................. ;D

By the way, it's also appropriate to use ,"About a Millenium Ago........"
