$3.00 a six pack beer? When I moved to AZ in '74 the grocery stores had Coors on sale for $1.29/six pack. Now those WERE the good ol' days.
Could anyone ever (Truly) get a "Slinky" to go all the way down a set of Stairs?
Only had to deal with religious ed on Fridays... but yeah: no way to forget the ruler... or those times when they really went off on somebody and used him for jiu-jitsu practice...
Those nuns would kick your ass!
The original Slinkys of the early sixties were pretty good grade spring steel I think.
They were great until inevitably kinked.
Then the newer ones just weren't as good quality.
I could play with a Slinky like ALL DAY when I was a kid.
Nowadays, four or five hours is about all I can manage.
Slinky, Hula Hoop, Rock'em Sock'em Robots, Lite Brite, GI Joe, Trolls, Mouse Trap, & Hot Wheels were super cool when they came out............ Kicked the crap outta Matchbox!
What the hell were those heavy plastic balls on a string .................. Knockers?
