And if you got a drink of water in the house, it was from an aluminum (called it "tin cup" back then) cup. And if you had really good water like where I grew up, it tasted better than anything then or now.

And another one (I've heard echoed by another Inmate at a rally).... During warm season, you probably got bathed before nightfall and played some more. So before going to bed, you washed behind your ears, face, hands, and soles of feet with a wash cloth before going to bed. Even if you didn't get a bath that day.

Probably a Southern thing.

Back when I was your age, there was no such thing as butt dialing.

We delivered newspapers in the winter in Wisconsin, in the snow, on a single speed Schwinn bicycle with a extra large basket on the front of it. And that was after going to the place where the paper bundles were delivered and we had to "sub" them, by putting them together with all the different sections before we started out delivering.

I never delivered papers. Back when I was your age all news was chiseled in stone tables and placed near the village well where the person who could read spread the news OR we watched CNN.....

No really. It was called cave news now. I remember Wolf Blitzer was always outside howling.
