I was just thinking the other day about some things I miss about the good old days.

Stores closed on Sunday
TV's going off the air at 10:30 PM
Eating 98% of our meals at home at the table.

How bout you?

I know somebody is going to say "don't shop on Sunday" "turn your tv off at 10:30PM" and "cook your meals and eat them at home" and yes I could do those things but I am a creature of the times.

I couldnt imagine not bieng able to shop on sunday.Sunday evening is my "go get what I need for the week" day. plus I dont get off until 10 pm most nights and midnight during weekends so I may not even get to bed before 4 am....I dont know if I could go 6 hours at the house at night with no television. And Dinner at home at the table??????? really? Wow...you really call those the good ol days?...lol. Im just Messin with ya. tho I couldnt imagine living in the 40's and 50's like my dad did. He would tell me the same stuff and Im really happy I was born in the 70's. I love technology. the only thing I miss about that era and mine is the respect kids had for there parents. I knewto never say a cross word and my dad told horror stories of getting waylaid behind the barn. I think Kids today need a little taste of those days. Hell even folks my age would appreciate life more if they had lived in those times. My hats off to ya!

I miss the drive-in movies, the soda machines that only held glass bottles (turned sideways), and after dropping in a quarter, or 30 cents,  you would then pull out a bottle of soda (of your choice) by the neck. (I was always afraid it would break when I'd pull one out, but they never did.*lol*)  I miss the taste of fresh fruit, that really tasted like "FRESH FRUIT".  I miss the way children had a higher respect for their parents than they do today. Or how you wasn't afraid to stop along a deserted road to help a stranger change a tire, or give them a ride to the nearest pay-phone/gas station.

YES YES for all the ole days for me too!  I still think we could live like that but technology wont let ya!
I can remember every Sunday going to grandmas with all the cousins and aunts and uncles and eating dinner and one playing the piano, another the guitar, another the banjo and (some with spoons) singing and just plain clean fun! God I miss that.

I miss the way neighborhoods used to be when I was a child.  When Mom had her housework done and before it was time to start supper (we called the evening meal dinner in Michigan), she would go visit a neighbor for just coffee or depending on the time of year, they would can stuff together.  All of the ladies in the neighborhood were friends. And not just the houses surrounding ours, but all up and down the road for almost a mile. Of course back then, there was only one wife/mother that worked in town, all of the others stayed home.   People made such an effort to get along with each other, too.
Here is a little story, case in point:
We had bought a purebred German Shepherd female and tried and tried to get her bred to a nice registered male someone had at a German Shepherd kennel.  She would have nothing to do with him.  Finally we gave up, and went on vacation, leaving our female in the care of one of our neighbors, to come down to feed and let outside.  Two months after coming home from vacation she presented us with puppies, obviously fathered by that very neighbor's little mutt dog.  Back then it was thought that if a Purebred dog EVER had mixed breed puppies, she would be ruined for life and AKC would never register a litter out of her. (I can't imagine this ever really being true). But anyway,  we got her spayed.  It was the neighborhood joke that our high priced dog preferred the  little neighborhood heinze 57 to good bloodlines, and my parents never got mad about the whole thing, like you know people would today.
Hey, it's just me, Suzi

I miss the days when the whole family (g'parents/aunts/uncles/cousins) would get together at grandmas and grandpas house for Easter-Thanksgiving-Christmas-4th of July-Anniversaries........I miss the days when me and my friends and others would ~party~ at the river or have a big bonfire on a gravel road......family camp outs at the river or the lake.......the mischievousness's we would get into during our high school years.....I miss the days when the kids were safe to ride their bikes around the town and safe to walk to school or to their friends.....I miss the days when my health was good............

Oh my goodness im gonna love this thread! I miss everything!
I miss when a man stood by his woman and respected her. Now all they desire is the trash they see on tv or the young ones who flash it around at em all the time. Familys just dont stay together anymore, cant do it with only one trying. I miss familys staying together, for better or worse, richer or poorer, IN SICKNESS & in health!! Amen!!!!

I so, miss our old drive in.  And I hadn't thought about those soda machines in years.  I also miss Jim's market and Mallow's Market.  They were so easy just to walk to when you needed something. Oh and who remembers the little ice cream place at the bottom of the Waynesville Hill; where the welcome to Waynesville sign sits now? I miss the "Dairy King" where Curves is now, I also miss Ted Williams Steak House, the original one. I miss all of our neighbors going to church together before the church split.  I miss Sunday dinners with them all at one of our homes.  I miss having Gilbert Crismon and the Buckhorn Four here to sing.  And when I was a little girl, Marion Mallow would give us a stick of gum when we'd go in the store with our parents.  And speaking of parents, I miss the respect kids had back then too.  I miss so many things about what seemed a quieter, easier time in my mind.  Maybe it wasn't, but my memory thinks it was.

I miss sitting on the front porch of our "old lady" neighbor and hearing all her stories about the past.  I have since figured it out and I we think she was probably around 50 or so.  I miss going to the movie and being able to stay and watch it again without paying.  Thanks for the memory about the Dairy King, I had forgotten that.  I remember when there was more that a few feet between houses.  Seems like everybody in town, where I lived, had an acre or two, now when I go home all of those acres are full of houses.  I miss being able to have dogs and all we had to do was keep their shots up, now there are a half dozen reasons to take them to the vet, heartworm, parasites, etc.  didn't we have them back then or did people just not know about them.  I remember sleeping outside in the summer.  No tent just a few blankets thrown on the ground and a couple to cover up with.  Oh to be able to go back there just for a day, to see my mom and dad and our house.  I don't think kids now will have the memories that we do.  They are too busy playing on computers, watching television etc.  I remember going to our public library and we could make crafts there anytime.  The librarian was always willing to help us make something for our mom or grandma.

I remember playing hide and seek and kick the can when I was a kid in CA. 

Technology and progress have improved a lot of things but it has caused us to lose a lot of the old ways and values.  I think that is why I am so glad I moved to MO.  It is a much friendlier place than CA has become and the pace is so much slower than living in a crowded city.

Well I am not as aged as some of you, But even in my generation I also miss Jimmy Johns. Not only was it right down the road but every time we would when a base ball game we would go for Ice cream...  I also miss the older labor day parade.. When it was up town and not so much at the park... I see more political campaigning then I do anything anymore. and the cost of the games.... It is hard to spend a night of family fun... I heard the carnival at St. Robert was awful some friends told me they took there two kids and spent $50 withing minutes and the girls didn't get to ride all the rides...  That's hard to do on a tight budget.. I know my family spent alot of time together, More than other my age did anyway... We always went to Silver Dollar City, Or fishin, Big Surf. I think we spent most of our time in branson. I remember this great big Water slide Boy was it a blast... And Hearing all of you talk about drive in movies I wish there was still some around here, I think there is one nearbye.
With the cost of things these days I sometimes understand how it is hard to do things.

I miss making homemade ice cream, and hayrides, when we were growing up the churches, and the farmers would have these more than once a year. And it was always fun. We would build a bond fire and roast hot dogs, marshmallows and have smores and tell scary stories. Those were the days!

I miss the summers when me and my cousins would go stay for weeks with our grandparents on their farm. We would help gramma in the garden,gather eggs, help with the chores and we got to go fishin with gramma in the afternoons. I miss the times when i could walk to work at Jimmy Johns, or Leona's Cafe. Things were definately nicer back then. Thank you all for reminding me to "Stop and smell the Roses". And Thank you for the memories, I love this thread

i'm just glad my kids didn't have to move around like i did and go to so many different schools, and to have to make new friends all the time. I always tried to do something fun with my kids during the summer, something that hopefully they would remember. I still do stuff with them toghether and apart as each one is different...
