Thread Name: For all the Ancients
Subject: RE: For all the Ancients
I'm not ancient, but because my dad is, I grew up watching black and white movies and helping him restore the '51 Studebaker Champion that he still hasn't finished. My first crush was the guy who played Zorro in the t.v. series. (Of course, I saw it re-runs, he's probably dead now.)

I saw a list of items a while back that said, "If you remember 1-10, you're over the hill. If you remember 1-15, you're old. If you remember 1-20, you're as old as dirt." I don't remember all of them, but item #18 was a rollerskate key and #19 was an ice box. I recognized everything on the list, so I guess I'm old as dirt.

By the way, my dad will be glad to hear that he's not the only living person who knows what a slide rule is!
