Riding in the back of pickup trucks, no seat belts for us!
80S, Pickup Trucks, Childhood Memories, 70S, Truck I, Kid, Seat Belts
Riding in the back of pickup trucks, while sitting in lawn chairs that folded up on you when your Dad stopped to quickly! Kids of today... you're welcome!! The stupidity of the children of yesteryear and the oblivious nature of their parents are the reason that you now ride safely inside of cars secured in seat belts.
While in high school one of the girls clubs went on a swimming outing. We went in the back of a pick up truck. I can't believe that was once acceptable. Kids did it a lot also.
Riding in the back of pickup trucks. I remember doing this a few times before it became illegal. What were we thinking? LOL!
Riding in the back of pickup trucks. As a kid ( in the 70's) I never rode in a car seat, never wore a seat belt and rode in the open bed of my Dad's pickup truck. Apparently, it's a minor miracle that I ever made it thru childhood with parents that had so little regard for my safety ...
Riding in the back of pickup trucks, no seat belts... Remember the Football, Baseball,Golf and Bowling Game?
Riding in the back of pickup trucks, no seat belts for us. My great uncle would take us for ice cream all the time.
Riding in the back of pickup trucks we had El Caminos and the kids loved riding on a half open tonneau cover even in the winter If it was really cold we would squish 2adults and 3 teens in the front seat especially if raining or snowing Those were the fun days with kids
Riding in the back of pickup trucks. Lots of fun...the good ole day's!

1963 ~ The Zip Code - It was the year Robert Moon, known at the time as Mr. Zip, gave us the Zoning Improvement Plan, the 5 digit Zip Code

1963 ~ The Zip Code - It was the year Robert Moon, known at the time as Mr. Zip, gave us the Zoning Improvement Plan, the 5 digit Zip Code #retro #nostalgia #zipcodes #Mrzip
Mr. ZIP, encouraging use of ZIP codes in the 1960s and 1970s -- I remember my grandparents "address" to receive mail in the late 70s - early 80s being the name of person the letter was to, "general delivery" and the town's name. Post ofc delivery had to REALLY know their routes back then!
The Zip Code was introduced by the US Postal Service in 1963. Robert Moon, known at the time as "Mr. Zip," gave us the Zoning Improvement Plan, the five digit Zip Code.
July 1, 1963 Robert Moon, known as Mr. Zip at the time, gave us the Zoning Improvement Plan, the 5 digit Zip Code.
1963 ~ The Zip Code - It was the year Robert Moon, known at the time as Mr. Zip, gave us the Zoning Improvement Plan, the 5 digit Zip Code. This changed how I could address mail to my grandparents--mail was general delivery to their very small WV community, meaning you had to go to the general store each day and pick up your mail from the post mistress. I could send a letter to them with only their name and their zip code and they'd get it!
Mr. ZIP promoted the use of ZIP codes for the USPS during the 1960s and 1970s. ZIP codes are a system of postal codes used by the United States Postal Service (USPS) since 1963. The term ZIP, an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan, is properly written in capital letters and was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently, and therefore more quickly, when senders use the code in the postal address. The basic format consists of five decimal numerical digits.

This is how my ears were pierced back in the day!....with a needle after freezing your ear with ice. Yep been there...done that!! Didn't use GLOVES!!
Remember, Ice Cubes, Childhood Memories, Days, 70S, Memory Lane, Friend
this is how some of us got our ears pierced back in the late '60s/early '70s ~ with a needle "sterilized" with a lighter that was then poked through ones earlobe after freezing the lobe with an ice cube. the girl across the hall from me when i was a freshman in college cut a potato in half and had me hold it behind my earlobe. quite the little surgeons, weren't we?
.Getting your ears pierced with ice cubes and a needle. Don't forget the bar of soap behind your ear. I pierced a lot of ears back in the day.
Getting your ears pierced with ice cubes, a needle and thread! When I was 13 my best friend, Marsha did it!

Getting your ears pierced with ice cubes, a needle and thread!... My Daddy pierced mine when I was in sixth grade.
Getting your ears pierced with ice cubes, a needle and thread! My cousin Sheri and our friend Dora...
I remember my cousin getting her ears pierced like this. You "sterilized" a sewing needle by burning it in a flame. After numbing the ear with ice you (or an accomplice) stuck the needle thru the lobe and left it to heal with a piece of thread or an inserted straw from a broom. You may well wonder: So what was the point of sterilizing the needle if only to reintroduce bacteria from the dirty broom? I have no answer. Yes, those were the (Neanderthal) days. hahaha

Is it for me?...OMG!!...I remember my Mom telling me I had 5 minutes on the phone!! Today's kids will never know the joy of the phone being for you OR their mother limiting their time on the phone!
Very funny to me because the last thing I do with a phone call is rush to it ... although back in the day, I was just like this ad!
When the phone rang you didn't know who was calling until you answered.the only time in life I hoped it was for me.
When the phone rang you didn't know who was calling until you answered. Yep, I remember those days! ha!

WOW....70's decor... Rubbery grapes. My grandma had these in a bowl on her dining room table *forever*. I used to secretly chew on one every so often. They must have been completely toxic because even after a DECADE on her table, they still off-gassed chemical fumes something fierce. Correction: Apparently these lovelies are blown glass, much nicer...
