We did. Wonderful!
You and your family used to eat meals at the dining room table.
Only on holidays
Your dining room table was long, oblong and had extra leaves you could add
You had tablecloths for every day and for holidays.
Just for holidays.
You didn't have just one tablecloth for Christmas. Several to choose.
You or your mother had/have the felt-backed pads for your table which go under the tablecloth and cushion/protect the wood from your dishes, etc.
No longer. We tended to use potholders and kitchen towels
You remember party lines. (My aunt used to listen in on the other party. No life of her own, I guess)
I do! Wild how much things have changed.
You had a real milkman who came to your house.
Yes! Glass bottles with paper lids
Your milkman delivered butter and eggs too
He did. And cottage cheese.
You sometimes had cottage cheese and pineapple as a kid.
Not as a kid, no
As a kid you had some toys stamped on the back "made in occupied Japan."
I don't think so. I know this sounds weird, but I didn't have many toys as a kid. Just books, and our family had a couple board games.
You used to enjoy watching Monty Python's Flying Circus.
I never saw it.
If you are near a window, you can see the breezes rustling the trees. (If no trees, flags or banners).
(That s what I am seeing right now.)
