"Do You Remember These?"
I know most of you have no idea what any of these were, but you may enjoy what your parents shared with me......... Careful, it has a hip beat to it!

Um, sorry most of them I was to young for but I do remember the A&W root beer stands... the old fashion ones where you could buy a gallon jug to take home, that was the best, the A&W now does not taste the same or as good as it did back then!

I'm too young for most of the stuff but I know some of them. They still sell Lucky Strikes... come to think of it, the label is pretty much the same. We also got Cracker Jacks all the time. I hated the taste of them. I definitly remember A&W Drive in places... there is one in Faribault, MN. Sadie Hawkins was also a big thing for us in Jr. High and even in high school we still did them once a year. My sisters and I also had lemonade stands to make money. We used my littlest sister to get people to look at her cuteness and buy a cup.
I went to a Statler Brothers Concert in Mankato, MN a number of years ago. My Dad and I listened to his 8-track tape of them before we went... HAHA.Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

I don't remember any of the stuff they mentioned. Or maybe they were around and I wasn't paying attention.

I love it whey you reminisce Papabear. I remember a lot of those things. Sadly A&W is now grouped with KFC but we do have an original and still operating A&W hamburger stand complete with carhops on skates (rollerblades now) in Modesto, CA.
Those were the days, I wish they would come back more frequently.

Oh yeah. I also remember A&W and some great times that were had there.
When I lived in central CA in the early sixties, we had one in town, and it was a "must stop" on the way home after a date to pick up a quart of A&W and one of their "sub" sandwiches to take home for a late night snack. (I forget now exactly what they called the sandwich, but I can almost taste one right now. YUM!!)
I also remember just about everything in the video. Dang, I must be getting old.
It sure was a simpler and less stressful time though.

My cousin worked for the local A&W when I was a kid, sometimes we'd stop in and get these tiny little root beer floats, not much bigger than a shot glass, in little tiny keepsake mugs. Wish I still had one.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
