we always got these at this awesome candy store across from our middle school right before school started
My friends and I would go to Mr. Bulky's candy store to get all our birthday gifts, so we'd end up with trolls or this giant jawbreaker. After awhile, this candy would destroy your tongue.
Jawbreaker - I used to get the giant ones all the time and would always try to get it small enough to put in my mouth. Instead, it would end up on my dresser, barely started, covered in lint and dust balls, damn you giant Jawbreaker! Shakes fist angrily at the sky!
Gigantic jawbreakers that made your tongue raw and you stored it in a zip-lock baggie. the middle had rings of color!
Jawbreakers - thinking of my two boys, about elementary school age, when it would take them days to polish off one of these!
Huge Jawbreakers & Meeker Drug... I used to get these on the way home from school.
Huge Jawbreakers. Took me three days to get through one, my tongue hurt like hell!
Jawbreakers- I never once ever finished one of these.
Huge Jawbreakers...my typical lunch in high school.

Remember, Rotary Dial, Dial Telephone, Vintage, Memories, Phones
How to use a dial telephone..... ha I also remember phones with no dials and operators who asked for the # before the rotary dial phones were around. Party lines were the norm until Private lines were available. So many changes since the 1940's.
Vintage instructions on using that rotary dial telephone made necessary by phone numbers such as Circle 6-1234!
Rotary dial phones. Our phone number was EMpire 3-7619. The first 2 two letters were changed into numbers, so you would dial 363-7619.

Teenage Boy Cutting Grass With Push Lawn Mower Photographic Print by H. Armstrong Roberts at AllPosters.com
My brother and I took turns doing the lawns and back then they were big lawns, front and back! push mower
We used to have a push mower. I had to give a couple little shoves to get it going but once it got going it went pretty smoothly. Loved the sound of that blade spinning and cutting the grass. Good memories.
I used to watch my big brother mow with a push mower. Today that would be considered child abuse-ah the good ole days....
push mower - I never really had to use one (had brothers) but loved the quiet whirring sound they made.
We had one just like this. When my brother left to go to college dad got a power mower. Who would have thunk it?
Push mower. My dad used to say, "Do it for a quarter, or do it for free."
My G-pa had one of these. I love the sound it made... childhood memories

stockings in a box
Remember, Nylon Stockings, Days, Boxes, Memory Lane, Pantyhose, Nylons, Garter Belts
Before panty hose when stockings came in two pieces and in a box. Also one needed a garter belt to complete the ordeal.
Nylon stockings in a box. Not pantyhose - these were thigh high and you needed garters and girdles (or a garter belt, but I hated how they felt). If they had a seam you had to make sure it was straight. - rear of leg -difficult to twist around in a full-length mirror to see.
stockings in a box. And we wore garter belts to hold them up. To school every day. Because pants weren't allowed for girls until I was in 10th grade. Jeans were allowed on special days when I was a senior.
Remember when stockings came in a box???? I think I was twelve when I got my first pair of nylon stockings.
Stockings in a box. And we wore garter belts to hold them up. Wore to school every day because pants weren't allowed for girls.

Remember when stockings came in a box???? And ... there were two stockings ...*NOT* pantyhose ... *and* they attached with garter belts and such like.
Nylon stockings in a box - I still remember how they felt and smelled :) I used to sell these when I had my Saturday job in ladies underwear at 16 in what used to be a department store called Morley's of Brixton!
Stockings in a box - Wow, this goes way back. Can you remember how many you ran the first time you put them on? : I so loved the feel of them though but hated the garter belts!
