The idea of this game is to list something that you remember from " way back "
that only " old fogies " will remember

So you start each entry " Do you remember when.................. and then add what it is you remember

I will start

Do you remember when .......................

.................There were 4 US DOLLARS to a POUND STERLING

( honestly it is true when I was young that was the exchange rate )

Do you remember when.......you'd bug your parents into buying you those candy cigarettes at the local drug store/ soda shop.
This was before it was revealed that cigs were bad for you, the '50s.
They were either pure sugar or bubblegum and you and your friends thought they were cool.

*Much to my surprise there are companies that still make 'em and shops that still sell 'em!
I just looked online.

Do you remember when the dinosaur you were riding would get into a fight with another dinosaur that somebody else was riding, and you'd both end up showing up at work late as a result? Me either, but I remember:

- the Nixon-Kennedy debate, 1960 - I was four, my dad said "look at this, it's important, remember it", and I did! Just a glimpse or two of the candidates on my folks black-and-white TV is still etched in my head.

- Oswald being shot on TV, I was seven then and found it fascinating (read the annotated one-volume Warren Commission report cover-to-cover the following year, which my parents thought was sort of odd reading for someone my age).

- Cassius Clay beating Sonny Liston. I knew the fight was scheduled, went up to my dad the following morning as he tied his necktie in front of a dining room mirror, and he told me Clay had won - he'd been rooting for Liston.

- Beatles on Ed Sullivan the first time out. My older cousin, who was 13, screamed throughout and kept putting her hand on the TV whenever they showed Paul; I thought "she must know she can't actually touch him through the set, right?".

Do you remember when dialing a telephone actually involved a rotary-dial telephone?

Do you remember when no one had answering machines?
