starbucks wasn't around in my area (coffee was available at conveniences stores and fast food only), roller skating rinks & Video Game rooms were the rave.

*OMG - I totally forgot about Earth Shoes and Dr. Scholl's
*Sitting in the back-back of the station wagon at the drive-in movies with my 5 siblings. We were all in pj's.
*Picking up my mom after she had my baby sister from the hospital and passing her around so we could all hold her on the way home - no seat belts or car seats!
* Rolling down the windows in the car - no power windows
* Watching my father laugh at the Carol Burnett and Tim Conway skits.

I remember a junk collector that would drive a horse drawn wagon down the lanes of the city where I grew up. NOBODY used horse drawn anything other than for tourists, so this was a rarity even in the early 60's for Vancouver city (BC Canada)

I also remember the A&W drive-in had carhops with roller slates. The last one in the city

Coming to the public grade school early for two weeks before Christmas to sing Christmas carols, when the teacher played, "Oh Come All Ye Faithful", it was time to go to the classrooms.
The entire class memorizing and reciting the Christmas Bible story for the school Christmas program.
