Flavor Straws... dip and sip
 
Al, I loved Lic-M-Aide.  Did you empty the entire envelope in your mouth?

Coat checks. Eh.

When they do exist...watch out.

House calls by a Doctor.

Chewie, you must have lived one sheltered childhood. I didn't dare utter the word fever or that I felt sick. My Grandmother's and Mother's idea of Dr. Mom was worse then the real Dr. visit.

Nowdays, it would border on torture and definitely child endangerment/abuse and practicing medicine without a license...if you could call it medicine.

Maybe that's another thing thank goodness is lost to the past.

Well my father was a Surgeon, he heartily approved,, as the alcohol not only cooled you off, it killed germs. I thought everyone got them!

You're always welcome Belle! We have oodles of outstanding old-school Diners!


You sleep like a baby after the rubbing alcohol.. Zzzzzzzz.... Not at the Diner! After the schvitz...before the cold plunge.

I don't think I ever experienced those alcohol rubs, but do remember the gob of Vicks my mother would swab the back of my throat with for a cold/sore throat.  Now that's one treatment the AMA would frown on today.

Without re-reading... has anyone mentioned mucilage?  Maybe I did.
 
The garage sale was a major flop.  Someone ripped down most of my signs and neighbors at the other condos down the block decided to bank on my ads and big signs to hold their own.  They got the bulk of the customers because they were more visible.  Sometimes a person would tell us that "the other garage sales" told them that we were also holding one.  I still sold $300 worth of stuff and got rid of the brand new tile saw I bought for my store at $159.... sold it to a nice contractor for $50.  It was never used and he wanted it for $40.  I had $100 marked on the box!  But it's gone.  It was huge and heavy and took up way too much room.
 
Tile counters are becoming a thing of the past.   What is going to replace granite?
 
Corian is long gone.

Too bad about the garage sale but those are always a "hit and miss" type of thing!
Almost every garage sale I have ever been to the bulk of the stuff for sale was junk.
Sometimes tho you can find a really nice treasure.
$300.00 is $300.00 so at least it wasnt a total loss.

I use catgut strings. Catgut (natural strings) needs to be re-strung. No cats are harmed.

I loved those things. My mother had this glass-topped table and I'd be all over it with those dogs.
 
Speaking of dogs, We saw chocolate covered bacon at the Ohio State Fair last Tuesday.

I still use it every day, the alcohol rubs that is.  A super great way to end the day with a alcohol rub on the throat.  Canadian is my favorite swab

When my Mother wanted to enjoy cups of coffee # 18 - 21 at the Rodeo Steakhouse...she would give me all the change she had...so I could go across the way (at the Hudson Mall) to Good Times video arcade. It went from pinball in the late 70s to video games in the 80s. But...it's long gone.

However...we do have a new exciting place to enjoy the video games from our era. Barcade in Jersey City. Food spirits and all the video games from the 80s. It's awesome!

The other Barcade locations are Brooklyn & Philadelphia.

Intimate apparel fitting.


According to Mrs. Metro, Nordstrom still offers this service.
 
Fitting bras is evidently a science - a field in which I wouldn't mind getting a Ph.D.

It's nice to have a voice of reason....even when the lecture is in French.

They'll tell you No No No! at any age...and it's best to listen.

How about seeing someone off at the airport or picking them up where you went down to the gate?  Any airports have observation decks anymore?

Tea rooms in major dept. stores. White gloves too.

I have a picture of my parents on their way to a tea room excursion in NYC from the early 60s. I have to find it. My Father looks soooo happy to be on his way.

Has anyone mentioned the days b4 tamper proof packaging? It seems weird to get a bottle or box now that can be opened without some sort of seal.
 
That brings us to prescription bottles and other types of child resistant....people resistant caps and tops. I've been known to take a pair of pliers to some that einstein himself could figure out how to open.

I have suffered from the people-proof pill bottles many times.  Luckily my current service offers both styles of containers--child-proof and 'regular opening' as a choice for us old guys.
 
I miss being able to go to the gate to meet family or friends arriving at the airport.

When I was 16 or 17 (1963-4 or so) and still in high school, one of our favorite goofy things to do was to go to O'Hare and go down to the gates and greet "family". Dumb game but we were country kids and thought this was cool. They had an observation deck at that time.
