How many things are gone but not forgotten from our lives, which for some here go back only 2 decades, but for me to the late 40's, and my parents and grandparents generation that go back to the depression, and turn of the century. ( 1900 not 2000. :lol: ) I was thinking with cell phones, we never seen a phone booth anymore, When is the last time you saw a coin operated phone booth? Thought it would be fun to think of things nostalgic to you, of things that are gone but not forgotten.

Before the days of 8-tracks, you could get a 45 record player for your car, around 1964-65. The needle was held on the record and didn't bounce off.

I remember the dial up telephones, and it wasn't even THAT long ago either...
I also miss that people before 2000 actually cared about making good movies...
Same with video games, music and basicly everything...

I don't miss all the negative things though.

Those little plastic doohickeys you put in the middle of a 45's so you could play them on a full sized record player. I remember sitting around listening to my mom's 45's when I was a kid, and even getting to pick out one of my own just a few years before cassettes took over. Was also just packing up some stuff to move and found some old vhs tapes. I'm pretty sure my mom still has a vcr, but I can't remember the last time I saw one in a store. I'm not sure if I'm really old enough to play this game, though. :oops:

Mrs H,
I just recently saw a silver charm of one of those 45 record adapter thingies and was thinking of getting one
http://www.earthsolutions.com/45-RPM-Ad ... c_165.html

I miss the seventies most, I think (when i was a younger kid..born in 65)

I love watching movies from then..the fashion..the polyester..lol..remember the pull on pants covered in repeating patterns..how about velor..thos eold velor puillovers that were popular for a while.

the thick ties and checked clothing on guys
women's big, winged hair

someone mentioned "The Stepford Wives" movie..I like that old one just to see the people and the styles from back then in it.

Those big old, boat cars (and no seatbelts)

The Carol Burnette Show

I use to have an eight track player as a kid. I loved that thing.

am radio..back when it played just as much music as fm does now and wasn't moslty talk radio

I LOVED the Carol Burnette show!!!
I'm more of an 80's kid, don't remember the 70's very much (born in '76).

ETA: I think I've seen the necklace you're talking about. I would TOTALLY rock one of those!
