I would never pin a tail on an old maid, a young maid or a medium maid. On the other hand, I do pay a maid who comes in occasionally to clean -- something Ms lleechef insists is necessary, although I don't see why..

A cleaning lady?  I used to have one.  Loved not having to do it myself.
 
We pinned the tail on the donkey at all my birthday parties.
 
Wooden toilet seats?  Do they still make them? 
 
Has anyone mentioned Murphy and his bed?

I've never played pin the tail on the donkey.

My Birthday parties (it was the 70s) were at gasp Mc Donald's.. I got to fill the balloons and snap the head off the Ronald Mc Donald cake decoration. We had Grimace hand puppets and watched training films.

My Brother gave me two black eyes...in the same day.

The first with a toy gun that shot backwards while he set the target with a small mirror. I stood all the way over there...so I was safe. That was one.

Don't cry...we'll play catch. That was two.

He never got the baseball glove back...after I had to use it for all the ice.




OMG.....and you Had a "YAZ" Glove.......you won!...no matter about the 2 black eyes!

Still a Red Sox fan...and the glove still fits. My Mother put my name on it...and it's still there. I don't know what kind of marker she used but it sure was permanent. He was 14...I was 4...and she was mad.

Mar had good ones with kumquats & pineapples. I only know of one restaurant Shun Lee that serves kumquats. Mr. Chow serves loquats but I couldn't order them without laughing.

Yep.  Often with fancy brass hardware and a higher price to boot.

CC, does that charm bracelet include a Tree of Life?
 
Those should be worth a fortune today.

Of course! Don't forget the gong from The Gong Show.

The two rules are...

Put it on after you are dressed

Never fall asleep with it on.

But I usually don't remove my earring when sleeping.
 
Are lipstick brushes still used?
 
How about lip liner?
 
Are dry cell batteries still being used?

Elizabeth Taylor had dangerous charms. An ice pick. I think the pink thing is a rabbit's foot...

Is that a sugar tongs a few over from the mezuzah?
 
I used to wear those charms on a chain around my neck.

CC, that picture just made me think of those old, copper plate molds for jello and aspic....did I say aspic? whoa there's another blast from the past. The ones in the shape of fishes, chickens, and other creatures or the ornamental one. We had them, but they were never used and just kitchen decorations. One of our family's friends used to make the most awful tasting aspics like she was cleaning out her refrigerator for the weekend. I hated going for Sunday visits and getting stuck with her dense kids. They did have an air condioner and later a color tv, so it wasn't a total loss.

I let go of my fish when I had an antique space in a mall.  I always wanted to make a smoked salmon mousse but never had the right occasion.
 
I have my mother's nut chopper and very scarred wooden bowl which she used with it.
 
I buy my nuts pre-chopped.  It's easy because they're already measured.
 
Now I'm wondering if walnuts, pecans and almonds are even sold the way they were when I was a kid...  like the apples and onions. 
 
In my grandparents' store they were all in big burlap sacks next to the pickle barrel.

The copper plating didn't last very long on the one's we had. They developed these spots that got wider as they aged and we threw them away sometime about '77 - '78 after sitting in a draw for years.
 
Did you every eat any Aspic CC? At least what was called aspic with a lot of help from Knox in the box and Campell's. It was awful. No, disgusting.
 
Mar, you may have hit on another one. I don't know when was the last time I seen any mezuzot. They were very common when I was a kid with my grandparent's friends and the proper observence of kissing your finger and touching them as you entered. Does anyone do that anymore?

The nut choppers that I remember was the glass bottle with the white or translucent cone and it had a side knob/turning thingy that looked like those keys that came with a tin of sardines sticking out the side. There was something red on cone too. You turned it over and it turned the key to get crushed nuts.
 
The nuts came those drawstring, cloth bags with a label on them or from bins, not in plastic bag packaging like now.  Most of the shelled nuts were in the bags or in bottles IIRC. While we're at it, produce didn't come packaged either, nor there were those plastic bags that are in every produce section. They used to put out bushels with the wire and the colored wood for you to pick out of for some vegetables and fruits. Lots of the stuff like onions and potatoes came in those paper bags with netting or in net bags. Some stuff was put out in barrels. I never seen anything in a deli, market, or deli section or anything like pickles in a barrel self serve. That was always behind the counter.

I have a mezuzah on my front door.  A friend brought me a silver mezuzah when she went to Israel.  I also have a tiny stick on in my car. 
 
So, they are still used.  However, I haven't seen one hanging from a necklace in a long time.  Chai's also used to be very popular.
 
St. Christophers.  All the surfers wore them in the '60s.

Mar,
 
Do a google search for "Ebay Navajo Moose"
 
Make sure you're sitting down and don't have anything in your mouth when you read a few of the returns.

COSTCO has the mesh bags of Nuts during the holiday season.
 
We have thousands of Hickory nuts and Black Walnuts on the trees this year. The double shells of both species make cracking the a real labor of love.
