I also remember my neighbor got HBO, shows didn’t start until I think 7 or 8pm. And ended at 1 am.


Forgot about that. The HBO song would come on when it started. Saw it a hotel.

I remember the last plane I smoked on, 1991 I think, going to London from SF.

Remember pull-knob cigarette machines? Like the knobs on my 77 Bronco. Cigarette machine next to a pay phone at bars and lounges. (Remember lounges with candles?)

We used to ride our bicycles to the corner store and ALWAYS be able to find someone that would get us a 6 pack! Three cans of animal beer each for me and the neighbor kid = fucked up! Riding sideways back home!

I dont think there is a person anywhere that will buy kids beer nowadays! I know I would not even think about it and I was on the receiving end so I can understand!

Lol, things have changed!

Food stamps were actually stamps in a booklet.

Programming in cobal and FORTRAN. And basic on a Commadore 64. I think I took a spin at pascal. Hell, I taught my teacher how to build a database for grades.

Yeah I remember those bastard punch cards from college FORTRAN. I don’t think I ever programmed an error-free deck. And finding the bad card in a two-foot deck was a chrome-plated bitch.
