I always think of drive in movies in the summer. I remember how much my boys loved going to them. I’m not sure if it was even the movie they liked, or the playgrounds they all had for the kids to play on until the movie started or it might even have been the concession stand. I’ll bet if you asked them both where they saw ET, they would say at the drive in. Think how many movies we didn’t see saw at drive inns as teens. Back in my day anyway.
My first job was at The Frost-Top drive in for food. No, we didn’t wear skates but we sure had a good time. All the boys who came to them and all.
So Sunday night on the news this list of things we don’t use anymore really caught my eye. This is 25 years and 25 things we don’t use anymore. There are some things on this list that I had completely forgotten about. Some things not on this list that are longer than 25 years that come to my mind are colored TVs, air conditioners and my grandparents didn’t have running water and we had the good old out-house, which probably is a good thing.
Take a look and see if you can think of any more things that have gone by the wayside.
