Nostalgia Lane

Recommended Posts

This will be an open chat thread for anyone ( although let's be honest, it'll mostly be Chris ) to wax nostalgic. 

A song, a commercial, a TV show or product you remember fondly, or have seen reference to and it jogged your memory? Tell us about it, and maybe you're not the only one who remembers it!

80's kids, how many theme songs can you remember from this Saturday morning cartoon lineup?

I can remember four: Muppet Babies, Pole Position, Pryor's Place, and Dungeons & Dragons.

last time we got a bike for aiden, putting that foam handlebar-pad in place reminds me of our BMX bikes, jumping the ditches, the "track" down in the pines on Courtright's.

the other day, the smell of leaves reminded me of when folks would rake them up, either in small piles or out to the side of road and burn them off, or the big piles we jumped in...to this day cannot resist kicking my feet through any collection of leaves for the noise it makes

I remember the eat at counters in Woolworth’s,  I think Newbury’s had one too.  Both stores were on West Water Street in Elmira when there was an actual downtown.

I remember the cafe thing at KMart, and the one at McCrorys at the Mall. Aunt C. and I would have lunch there when she’d take me to the mall to spend my birthday money.

I do remember Newberrys somewhat.
