Didn't use helmets riding bikes. 

Have a complete Encylopedia Brittanica set sitting in the bookcase.

Remember wall phones with rotary dials.

Lots of good posts here but nobody seemed to mention 

  • watching Neil Armstrong take man's first steps on the moon
  • senior pictures were headshots where the boys wore suits and the girls wore a simple black sweater
  • postage stamps cost a nickle
  • candy bars cost a nickle, not $1.79
  • The Flying Nun and Captain Kangaroo
  • mom always had dinner on the table when dad came home from work and dinner was a family event
  • parents didn't pick random Scrabble tiles to name their children
  • bi-racial couples were unheard of and "queers" stayed in the closet
  • you remember when they added the smell to natural gas

didn't have Beatles, but I loved going up in an all black community where everyone in the community knew everyone. My teachers lived on my block, I could come home for lunch, if ever I go in trouble my parents knew it when I came home, same school from first grade to twelve, it was an expectation that we would go to college.
I miss that for the children today. That protected cocoon.
