Exclamation ~~~For Us Oldie Goldie Folks~~~

My Brother sent me an e-mail that contained a link that he wanted me to look into. It is a You Tube video called " Once Upon A Time Long Ago ".


I was impressed because it was a black and white video except for the last frame. It also contains music. It is nice! It brought back some serious memories about a time that I grew up in. The cars and things you see in the video were brand new when I saw them. So, keep this in mind!


It has photos of kids playing basketball in the street and photo's of a small girl helping Mommy cook ( and eating the frosting for the cake).
Here are some things that I noticed. I had to really pay attention:::


The family gathering around a Black and White TV.
Wife at home with kids while husbands worked.
Larger families.
A&W ROOT BEER DRIVE UPS!

Hoop Skirts!
Behaving kids in classroom
McDonald's Hamburgers were 15 cents
Coke a Cola was 10 cents per bottle.
BURMA SHAVE SIGNS we used to see while traveling highways on vacations. One says, " BIG MISTAKE...MANY MAKE...RELY ON... HORN INSTEAD... OF BRAKE! "( each two words were on separate signs).
Kids eating watermelon
Good Humor Ice Cream Bars
A milkman delivering milk to home.....etc......etc..


The Link is:::::youtube.com/embed/nSC7SXpInM?rel=O




There is a man who sings a song along with the video and he is pretty good at it.


Give it a try! Even the young people will like it.

Nice video..

It is funny when we are young we are so quick to grow up and do all the grown up things in life. Then when we get there and the time passes so quickly we wish we could go back and enjoy it all again. I know my Dad loves to watch the older sitcoms like Andy Griffith, Walton's Mountain, Little House on the Prairie.. etc heck I like to watch them too but he watches them everyday.

Thanks for sharing

Oh thank you Bryan! and thank you Dave for posting this for us Golden Girls and Guys!
I loved seeing the birthday party pony rides with little girls in “party” dresses and patent leather Mary Janes. And the tinsel on the Christmas tree. Although my sister in law still uses tinsel! Fun to see...

Do they still sell tinsel? I used to be the one with the job of putting on the tinsel - one strand at a time - perfectly spaced - but it was worth the time and trouble for the beautiful winter wonderland effect!
