I like to remember the happy times as I get older yes bad thing do happen that we have to deal with.
Life's has its ups and down But there are good memories that need to be remembered.
My good memories I can still vividly remember.

When I was 13 or so I got a Marx Electronic bowling game I still have it.
Another thought comes to mind is The best Show of All I think it is of Walt Disney Sunday Evenings pm. Gosh I miss those good old days. I own a lot of those videos purchased when the video stores closed I still look for all the Walt Disney Video. The best one of all is I was at a yard sale and I got there just in the nick of time there were file boxes of videos every where for $.25 each Whoa I got the best collection of all Treasure Island and Plus Parts 1-6
that's the best $1 I ever spent. There is more happy times along with sad times but not enough room to Witt it all down here.

I'll agree with you on this one! Especially memories of lost family members and pets. They help deal with the negitive of the present! However, new memories are just arround the corner and life is here for the living! Weither your memories are past or yet to be made they are there to bring us joy and happiness! I too miss the sunday night Disney movies and it was a highlight of my child hood!!! Great topic! :D

I can only definitively remember what I've forgotten when someone reminds me.

I've always felt very old because our town and local area has been changing at a pace that would make anybody's head spin. In the last 10 years, there have been over 50 new businesses, some gone, some moved. Older ones have gone. Successful ones have expanded twofold, now unrecognizable. Some buildings were knocked down, others were simply cleaned of their previous establishments.

As a young babe, I used to get free cookies at the farmer's market bakery in town. The owner of the store recently 'got out' of the business after over 30 years and another upstarting farmer's market took its place, in the same building.

I forget a lot, but at least I remember that I forget a lot.

Trailer Park Boys:

Lahey: "Ask me if I care."

Julian: "Do you care?"

Lahey: "Care about what?"

I certainly understand that. Seems like when I was younger,
change of course occurred, but at a much slower rate.
It seems that things, buildings, neighborhoods, technology,
stayed pretty much the same as I grew up in the 50's-60's and
Seventies...in the late 80's everything started accelerating and
the pace of change only increases. :roll:

I'm starting to get that wistful yearning such as the character
in the Twilight Zone episode,"Walking Distance."

I also agree . Times back seemed simpler but i suppose as a kid we had fewer responsibilities . My entire childhood was wonderfull , filled with friends and lots of same family interests . Lots of years of radio hunting and flea market stuff . Its interesting how certain smells can bring back the past .

How's this:
Family time - " I'll wait here in the comfort of my vehicle while my assistant, Jim, wrestles the black rhino.". "Oh, it looks like he could use some help.. Look at that rhino man-handle him!"
:lol:
Great fun. I don't really miss those days. I sure am glad that they were part of my life though.

Yep - "Wild Kingdom" with Marlin Perkins...

I don't want to get too far off the OP....BUT...and this has
been lamented here before...The shows that brought the family
together on a Sunday night were enjoyable but also contained
reinforcement of doing the right thing, the honorable thing...

We would sit down around the big 25" Color console
and enjoy the likes of such wholesome fare as:

NOW? what messages are being programmed into the minds
of impressionable youth? :roll:
