I used to enjoy Jonathan Winters on the Jack Paar show. He was outrageously funny.
He lived a mile or so from us and we used to see him at the local Grand Union supermarket .

I remember when they announced on the news that we would have flying cars in 1965.. I was thrilled (IT was 1960 at the time). I begged my daddy to buyone when they came out,, he died fifteen years ago and I am still waiting.. he is probably using one right now!! emoticon emoticon

I remember my dad thought Jonathan Winters was hilariously funny! He could imitate almost any voice-- Dad had an old record with Winters' humor, and my dad could laugh, roaring in laughter, again and again----replaying that record many times!

I agree. The art of letter writing has generally gone by the wayside.
On a happy note, we just received a hand written wedding thank you note with a photo of the bride and groom.😀

Modern times-- cannot cancel out the importance of a hand written thank you note. I remember training my children on this "lesson"-- It should still stand!
(and my mother trained me)-- Recently I did receive a very lovely hand written thank you note from a very "courteous bride"-- It made me want to thank her for her note! (smiling)---

God grant me the strength to reach my goal.

Used to receive postal greeting cards for birthdays, holidays and other occasions. Also, newly weds would send a hand written "thank you for your generous gift" card with an enclosed snapshot of them. Last few invitations/thank you, etc replies were generic e-cards.

---When people used "hand signals" for turning-
I thought of this because this morning driving to work, the driver in front of me used his arm to signal a left turn- I was stunned because I had not seen this done in ages!

Last gas shortage after hurricane Sandy...waited 5 hours...line was about a mile long. I still refuse to go to my local gas station for fill ups. During the so called shortage the owner blocked the entrance and only omitted his "customers".

I do not know what click clacks are.....

Remembering Art Linkletter makes me smile!-- I loved the funny segment about kids saying the darndest things!-- Mr. Linkletter very often would ask the child,
"What did your mother say-- not to say?"--- The kid would always blurt out the embarrassing answer. Ha.-- and the audience would roar!

I remember 15 min. tv shows, just like radio used to have, "All My Children" and "General Hospital" had a half hour slot they shared. Also, there was an evening musical show, 15 min. of Liberace and 15 min. of Nat King Cole, and barely any commercials between them. Black and white tv, in the 1950's. Art Linkletter had a 15 min. "House Party" and followed with a 15 min. "Kids Say the Darndest Things", on in the afternoon. Part of daytime tv.

Amazing to think back about home prices! My parents bought their new home in 1939- It was all brick, 2 bedrooms, full basement, separate garage-- And the home had beautiful stained glass windows on both sides of the living room fireplace. Price $6000.00 (but it was a small lot) Ha.
