My toy soldier kit for Xmas. Came with big block of lead, and toy soldier molds. You heated up the lead, poured it into molds, let it cool, painted the soldiers. For ages 8-10.

very cool & detailed BOP, thank you for sharing


  • keeping school supplies in cigar boxes
    coffee shops with tableside jukeboxes
im thinking the above two items are my favorites out of the list


  • telephone numbers with a word prefix (Murray Hill 7-7000)
i wouldn't even begin to know how to dial that. from what i saw in an earlier post i'm guessing that was a party line number?

If I could get one favorite thing back it would be the brother I lost in 1952 when I was 5 and he was 3. Too many years without him.

my 1st 2 cars ...

66 Dodge Dart 170 Cu
67 Dodge Dart 225 Cu

- 3 on the tree

next 4 vehicles were a 72, 70, 68, 69 VW Beetles
The first car my wife and I bought was a '66 Dart GT. I wish I still had that thing.

I am so sorry to read that. :frown: My daughter told me this weekend that one of her college friends just lost a child at 6. Not fair. My son in law lost his brother (10 years older) when he was 10. Life sucks, a lot. But, we have to keep going.

I think the memories of us oldies are much better than the memories of the newer generations. I say that because life had more meaning before social media and all that. I don't do FB, Instagram, Twitter, etc. None of it. I still write letters. Times have changed so much so fast; it is scary and disheartening. Again, sorry for your loss.

I liked the boxy style of the 67 ... but yeah - mine was a wedding present from my FIL :lol:



65 / 66 / 67 were each different [externally]

My memories aren't as good as yours because I've documented a couple on Instagram? You're a righteous twit. :lmao:

I miss having to discover things on my own. When I was a younger you learned things passed through someone you physically knew or you got a hold of :gasp: a book.

Now I can find everything on any subject on the internet which isn't bad but even Victoria isn't secret anymore.
Admit it, you miss the excitement of finding a dirty magazine in the bushes behind the school. Kids now-a-days will never have that experience, plus all the pop-ups and inappropriate website ads will make sure little jimmy is completely desensitized to it all by the time he is 5 anyways.
