We didn't have damage night, but on Halloween we would smash peoples pumpkins.

This reminds me of the time when I was a teenager and we creeped across the highway to change the Great clips roadside marquee to say Great Clits (we were like only 14). We took the T from the Tuesday. It was like that for a week along a busy highway. We still laugh about that.

We ran back to the house all scared and laughing our butts off. We turned off the lights and peeked out the window. We thought there might be cops. Every day that thing was up was another notch on our belts.

Honestly, I am amazed that kids play outside anymore. I thought if it didn't have a microchip in it, they would not be interested. My hope for the imagination of future adults just went up.

I have heard from other women that girl scouts were lame, and that they were envious of the boys in Boy Scouts. You ladies didn't even get to ride horses. Did you get to make fires even?

Hey don't knock the girl scout cookies. Those are awesome.

Ok here's a good question, can you all remember the first album you ever bought, and how much it cost?

Me: Eagles, can't remember the name of it, was light blue cover with a cow skull on it LOL...and it was $4.99 and my allowance was $5.00 for cutting the grass once a week LOL

OMG on this music topic, I bought Jethro Tull Aqua Lung...and was cranking it and Dad walked in right when the title song was playing, he picked up the album, read the back and freaked LOL...I had to talk him out of confiscating it.

It was a tape cassette for me. I purchased two. Pearl Jam 10, and Faith No More Epic. I don't know how much they were, but I do remember that i broke the Pearl Jam tape. I was inspired by the movie Summer School to write the distributor and see if they'd send me another one. They did, and I was amazed.
Thank you Dave and Chainsaw.

It's all about the Boo Berry, Franken Berry, and Count Chocula... Boo Berry is rare.

I was actually more of an indoors girl when I was a kid. My favorite "toy" was a pad and a pencil. I would draw, doodle, and write all in one notebook. I always had notebooks all over the place...and I still do.

My daughter actually is outside all the time old school style.

Man this thread is bringing up a ton of memories. We'd play the dot game on paper all the time. The one were you use grid paper (if your lucky), or just line paper so the dots wouldn't be all skiddy-wumpous. You could do it easy and make it so three lines connected or the harder one with the four lines.

Each player could make one line per turn, whoever made a triangle or a square would initial it. At the end, tally up the amount. Whoever had the higher number was the winner. We'd play that for hours. I always read books too.

Glad your daughter plays outside "old school" ... right on, Snowflake! I love hearing that, it makes for so many great memories as you can tell with this thread


OMG the dot game...Eye we played that all the time on graph paper wow, I haven't thought about that in agesssssss, good one!

Remember the paper folded "footballs" that were really triangle shapes and the other person would make a "field goal" with their fingers and you'd try and flick it through? LOL.

Notes passed to bf's or gf's with boxes you could check off: "Do you like me, yes, no or maybe" lol each one having it's own box...
