What I remember from the 70's

Pee_chee_folder_front"You might have been a child in the 70's if..."

You remember a time when most homes still only had one color TV.

You wore your hair in braids just like Laura on Little House on the Prairie.

Your older sister had daisy stickers stuck all over her headboard.

You carried your school papers in a Pee-Chee.

Your parents installed brand new carpet - a "lovely" long shag in multi-shades of green and gold.

Your mom owned a yellow and orange speckled mushroom shaped Ajax/Comet dispenser.

You played "Lost in Space" with your friends.

You spent your summers at the city swimming pool - never giving a second thought to tanning, or wearing sun screen.

You watched re-runs of the Brady Bunch every day after school and you know all the words to the theme from Gilligan's Island.

Recess came three times a day - in the morning, after lunch, and afternoon.

One of your friends owned a Donny Osmond lunch pail.

You watched Captain Kangaroo, remember the name "Mr. Green Jeans" and still wonder what was up with the moose and all the ping-pong balls.

You wished they would play Cinderella on the "Magic of Disney" because you didn't get to see it at the theater.

Your mom sewed most of your clothes, including a yearly Easter dress with a matching crochet shawl.

Your favorite dolls were Malibu Barbie and Skipper.

You read all the books by Judy Bloom including Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great.

The boy down the street owned a candy apple blue banana seat bicycle.

You toured the "Freedom Train" and saw Judy Garlands ruby slippers and the Liberty Bell.

Jimmy Carter won the first presidential election you remember.

Road travel was frequently a wild ride in the "way" back of an olive green station wagon - stuffed with all the "gear,"  other children, and no seat belts.

Mom did make our Easter Dresses but we did not have a shawl. I am jealous. just kidding. Good for your mom to make you both. The folder caught my attention It certainly was part of my history. Giligan's Island and Brady Bunch, Batman The Wonderful World of Disney and Mutual of Omaha's wild Kingdom, as well as Laurence Welk and Hee Haw where some of the things my family enjoyed. I am not sure they were all in the 70's but you got me thinking.
