When you back the car out of the garage with the hatchback open, hitting the garage door and shattering the back window of the car. (Oh yes, I did!)

You are always meeting new and interesting people, sometimes in the mirror.
Frequently wrong, never in doubt.

"Oh. It's only you Maynard."

What about seeing "It's a Mad Mad Mad World" in the theater? Over 3 hours of some of the best slapstick humor from nearly every well known comedian who cut his teeth on the Vaudeville circuit. I about peed my pants when Buddy Hacket flew that plane through the Coca Cola sign.

Back in 1964 when a teen, I remember the monster flicks and plastic models. It seems monsters, motorcycles, and surfer stuff was big. The movie big thriller at he movie house with the girl friend was "The Tomb of Ligeia" with Vincent Price. Later there was Beach Blanket Bingo and the RAT Eric Vin Zipper and a crazy gal called Candy that really could do the Twist-- Later known as Miss Perpetual Motion.
The most stupid TV show was called "My Mother the Car". I always had to watch The Twilight Zone, then later it was Vic Morrow on "Combat" on the B&W TV. The big new comics were huge 70 page war or monster comics. I still have all original four issues of Blazing Combat, as well as editions of Creepy & Eriee. And don" forget Famous Monster Magazine. I got about a 2 foot high stack of those in the back closet from 1959-1966. And Later in high school it was hot rods, auto races, and chicks. Still later say 1968-69, War games with all those little card board pieces- Richthofen's War and Wooden Ships and Iron Men. We actually played these games later in the Corps on Okinawa,-- when we ran out of cash for the Kin Vills town pleasures.

If I would have been smart I would have got some bring back K98, Lugers, and 45s--cheep. :snooty: :snooty: :doh:
I chose poorly. But what do you expect from a kid that enlisted in the Marines during Viet Nam. :shhh: :shhh:
I bet a lot of us late 60s kid enlisted- a different breed than todays high school kids.

I enlisted in the Navy in 1970 out of patriotism.

You know you’re old when someone yell’s “Duck and Cover” and you look for your school desk.

Duck & Cover, wasn't that when the Nun came after you with the long wood ruler :doh: :lol:
At the catholic school in the early 50s we had 3 grades in one class room. Had those crazy drills out in the hall. God forbid if some of your marbles slipped out of your pocket and started rolling on the floor during the drill. Our desks still had the hole for the glass ink wells during penmanship hour. I remember we had fountain pens with internal ink cartridges with a lever that sucked ink back up into the pen. Thick black pencils, not sure why we did not have ball point pens? Best invention was that Texas Insterment big black calculator a T 30 around 1976- no more slide rules in the corps. Then the photo copy machine with that big roll of paper that faded almost as soon as a copy ran off. How many remember the first Apple II computer ? Made writing your Masters a wee bit easier. I also remember TV dinners in those tin trays, jiffy pop corn and the VHS/Beta tapes that were neat so you could view a movie any time you wanted, and the micro wave to make pop corn or heat water. All neat inventions. I miss pay phones, 45s, and my 1962 Ford Pick up.
