I remember those. I remember in sixth grade there was a lot of adults worried about candied dots. Strips of waxy paper with rows of colored dot candy. LSD was big back then.

When Bubble Yum first came out. My pal and I bought all the Bubble Yum in the neighborhood and took it to school and marked it way up and sold it all in a day.

pay phones that cost a dime, for local calls, and long distance operators that were real people you could speak to.

When we landed on the moon. I was little, but I will never forget sitting on my living room floor with my parents watching that. For me, still to this day probably the single biggest news story of my life.

Shocked Re: Things baby boomers remember

One particular historical event that sticks in my mind is the Cuban Missle Crisis. (The year was 1962. I would have been 14.) At the time (for reasons that would be too complicated to go into) I had to walk through my parent's bedroom to get to mine. And I still recall one night standing at the foot of my parents' bed in the dark & my mother saying it looked as though there was going to be a war...
