    Cool Baseball cards

    I remember spending many, many nickels on those baseball cards trying to get Duke Snider. The only Brooklyn Dodger I could ever get was Danny McDevitt. Didn't know him then and don't know him now!

    Thanks Lone Wolf for that walk back to a kinder, gentler time.

    Default I do remember

    hey, I can remember when it wasnt unusual to pull up to the pump and ask for 50 cents of gas. The attendant pumped it and still checked your oil, water and maybe cleaned your windshield, too. And gas was much cheaper than 35 cents/gallon, too.....I'm really getting old, I guess...I wonder what my three children will remember one day?

    Wolf: Remember them all. Have talked to my older sister about similar issues and what our kids have missed by the evolution of our society. Great clip that brought back many pleasant memories.

    Remember, Trolling one. These off topic political and sentimental things need to be kept from us ordinary trail zealots.

    Yeah, me too. Including the style (and the name) of the music in the background. Beanie and Cecil? Don't forget Space Patrol, Wild Bill Hickock, Fury, and Ruff & Ready. Does ANYBODY besides me remember "Crusader Rabbit and Raggs the Tiger"? Or Captain Kangaroo's electric train setup at Christmas time? Duke Snyder baseball cards? How about Davy Crockett cards? And my car key is still sitting in the ignition, but then the closest metropolitan center is a half hour away and its only 70,000 people.

    As a kid I always wanted to go to Yellowstone NP. Although my family always took summer vacations in Denver to see my grandparents I never saw Yellowstone until just before I retired. Just before that happened, when I lived in England, I was amused by their pronunciation of geyser. They say 'geezer'. And now I'm living the good life in western Montana ane I am a Montana geyser/geezer (and, NO, I wouldn't want to go back...),

    I'll say...I'm one of them...Thanks much for this link...it's going to all of my extended family...even the young farts.
