old enough to remember...

waiting in line with my Mom for gas - depending upon if your license plate was even or odd.

I remember... Kiddyland in L.A., before there was a Beverly Center. I remember the rides and the pony rides for a quarter down the street.

I remember hearing on the news that Elvis Presley and John Lennon had died

I remember writing people tickets for switching their odd/even license plate numbers during the gas ration era....

You're just a kid.

I remember when pretty much all phones had cords.

Unless I was just sheltered, and cordless phones came out earlier than I'm thinking.

That's what I thought! I was just trying to remember when they came out. I know we got my mom and dad a cordless phone probably close to 20 years ago?? And it was expensive enough that three of us siblings chipped in for it...
