Hi Abedy

The continental car kit, fender skirts, We used to call the cars that had those add ons "Pimp Mobiles" due to the guy's occupation that drove them, Those cars had lots of bling bling' chrome phony staps that went over the trunk and car hood. Chrome curb feelers so the wide white wall tires wouldn't get dirty rubbing on the curb.

Then there was another group that had fuzzycolored dingo balls around all their car windows, Fuzzzy dice and high school graduation tassle hanging from rear view mirror, vigin mary's, on their dash board and the dog statue with the knodding head in the rear window, ledge.

Suicide doors on cars, Carters little liver pills are still around but now their called something else.

Last option: Open up the back of the tv /radio and look for a tube that wasn't glowing. Take it in for testing and get a replacement.

Flight attnedents were called stewardess SP?/:$ I don't remember any that were "Old" over 25-30.. Now there are flight attendents that are dudes :o and some women attendents that have lots of flying hr'sB|

'FENDER SKIRTS.'
A term I haven't heard in a long time, and thinking about 'fender skirts' started me thinking about other words that quietly disappear from our language with hardly a notice like 'curb feelers.'



I had a '74 Cadillac Coupe De Ville with fender skirts.

Does anybody remember the 70's diet candy called "Ayds"? It had to be pulled off the market, for obvious reasons.

Hi John,

Re: Feb 3, 1959

The day the music died.

:S

PS) And who was sick & decided to not get on the plane?



The "Big Bopper" (J P Richardson) was sick and did get on the plane. Waylon Jennings gave up his seat to him. Another of Holly's band, Tommy Alsup, lost his seat to Ritchie valens in a coin toss. The plane was originally intended for Buddy Holly and his band (and arranged for by Holly) but he was the only one who didn't give up his seat on the flight.

Thanks for keeping me honest.

I knew who did what just did not spend the time typing it out correctly.

Ya gotta be old to know that Waylon was supposed to be on the plane,

The “Big Bopper” has the flu and talked Waylon Jennings out of his seat. Ritchie Valens won a coin toss for his seat. ;)Sparky

I hadn't been born yet, but I know enough rock and roll history (and/or trivia) to know about Waylon.

The Wiki link has the part about Buddy wishing Waylon "I hope your bus breaks down" and Waylon retorting "I hope your plane crashes." Having that be your last words to a friend had to really suck (and reportedly haunted him the rest of his life).

I remember the belt drive dentist drill to well . My parents dentist wasnt getting any of those new fangled air drills. He was retiring in a few years. My last visit he said"Well Roger a few more visits we will have you done". I replied "Roger is my brother I am larry". He replied I must have gotten the wrong chart, I wondered why I couldnt find a cavity in 18. All this without Novacaine My parents were Christian Scientist. Never went back.
I saw a comment about Jimmy Carter. We talked about his brothers Billy Beer today. There were bars that had dance contests. The winner got a six pack second place got two six packs Third place got three . Worst was you had to drink it there to go home.
How many kids suffered through getting Levis {Button only} a few sizes to big because they shrunk so bad. Sitting in a bath tub of hot water turning blue so they would shrink to you. The other kids laughing about wearing your older brothers pants.
How about the 1950 Studebaker that had the syarter button under the clutch pedal so you could start it even in gear

I had an early Sony color TV that would "green out" from time to time. I found that if I opened the back and whacked the gun end of the picture tube with a screwdriver handle it would return to normal for about 2 weeks before greening out again.

If they hand me a cup of ice and a can of coke on each flight I really don't mind. I've never gotten on an airline flight with the intention of getting laid anyway.

That's a very relative term.

To you, probably not.

To the teenagers that live in my neighborhood, most definitely (although they think I'm at least sort of cool because I jump).

I don't see any problems with it as long as they have minimum stds regardless of gender(s).

"The airline has just recruited an additional 30 attendants – but of the five kathoey applicants, only one got a job.

"The other ladyboys' English was good, but their looks no good," said cabin crew manager Natcha Mitsumoto. "You still have to look like a lady to work here."

Remember when an 'electronic game' was vibrating football players!



And then we had Rock 'em Sock 'em boxers, then Pong.

Edit : I just did a Google search and realized they're still being made. Oh, well.
