Do You Remember. . .

Not sure what triggered this but my brain is taking its own trip down memory lane today, instead of writing.

Does anyone else remember:

  • Fizzies?
  • Tying your spending money/Sunday school offering in a handkerchief?
  • How scary the Wicked Witch of the West was?
  • Polishing your mary janes with Vaseline?
  • Setting your hair on pincurls? 
  • Toni home perms?

  • Dabbing vanilla behind your ears, pretending it was perfume?
  • Eating creamed tuna on toast?
  • Butter sandwiches?
  • Being able to turn a knob to turn on the TV?
  • Believing your friend when she said there's no Santa but hearing sleigh bells anyway when you went to bed on Christmas Eve?

I do!


  1. I remember Fizzies! (and the TV knob and the Toni home perms)

  2. I do, too! Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

  3. I remember the TV knobs, but I was more afraid of the flying monkeys.

  4. I can sing at least part of the Fizzies commercial...

  5. Oh, Marcia -- do sing it! I don't remember the commercial at all. Just the lovely fizz of the drink.
