When you graduated from high school and John F. Kennedy was president.   Then you get the notice for your 50th high school reunion.

We used our daily newspapers to make kites.

We bought the Hit Parade magazines to know the lyrics to such songs as Wooden Heart, Crazy, and the favorites from Paul Anka, Bobby Darin, Ricky Nelson and then, the Beatles.

Issues of Marvel and DC Comics were the rage among us neighborhood boys and we'd trade them so often that oftentimes, we'd have double issues and such.  

Cracker Jacks popcorn were my favorite just to get at the toys at the bottom of the box.

Trix are for Kids cereal, jello jelatin, Tang, and Ovaltine were a luxury in my household.

Didn't use helmets riding bikes. 

Have a complete Encylopedia Brittanica set sitting in the bookcase.

Remember wall phones with rotary dials.
