This weekend I was thinking how simple the 4th of July was when I was a kid. A backyard picnic and then we carried our blankets and lawn chairs to the park for fireworks. Everyone was happy.
Ever get nostaglic for things from 'The Old Days?' I wish I had the switch for the brights on the floor of my car. What things do you miss the most? Here are a few to get us started.
Remember Nehi Grape pop? Nothing tasted better on a hot summer day - except maybe the occasional Orange Crush.
Remember real Popcicles? Blue were my favorites!
"Open the wing!" Kids today wouldn't know what that means! It was a great way to get ventilation without wind in your face.
Penny candy. And it was a penny! Remember how the paper stuck to those silly dots, but you ate it anyway? And wax bottles with sugared liquid inside.
And while I'm right here - The Satuday Evening Post! Those covers were incredible bits of Americana at its best.
