    I think that's a US model (Land Cruiser). We had a Canadian model of The Land Cruiser (pictured below). It had a small vent window in the back seat, and didn't have the front window separation plate. The grille was different, as well.

    Remember when we actually had to carry real books from class to class,and some one would wear one those little pocket things with every kind of pencil and pen invented?

  9. #2759
    I didn't know any kids with pocket protectors. Our "nerds" were in the audio-visual club and were really nice kids. I remember being in the office once and hearing one of our brainy girls talking smack to one of her buddies about another. Cracked me up to realize that this clique was just as small-minded and petty as every other one in school. Until then, I thought that they were all perfect angels.

    Hey! I ran the Bell & Howell projector for our homeroom in the 6th grade! LOL!

  11. #2761
    LOL! That's a far cry from the kids who set up equipment and ran it for the administration in a high school with 700+ students, though. All were smart as a whip and very respectful to everybody but their own gang.

  12. #2762
    What,no pocket protectors? Not even a little one?[hehe]jerry at my school you would've sat with the smart kids and it was a very small table[hehe]we were dumb as chalk and just as mean,every time one of us actually made it to the next level a flare was sent to warn the next school.

    This might be the best thing you've posted in years. And you've had some classic posts, Amigo.

    Nicely done. I wish we had a "like" button on SDF.

    WHY THANK YOU JERRY,THERE MIGHT BE A WALK ON FOR YOU IN MY NEXT-POLAROID CLASSIC...[soon to disgrace-opps-err-ahem-hehe..grace a screen door in da hood],

    Hey remember when? Umm when we would?? Like back then???.....what were we talking about?

  16. #2766
    I dunno. But as we're getting older and this post is getting longer, we'll probably soon be wondering who remembers some of the folks who posted here 55 pages ago and hoping that they're still with us.

    Yeah, we started out with 700. Back then, we went to high school as sophomores and I remember our assistant principal giving us an orientation and informing us that one in five of us would drop out due to pregnancy. We started out with about 300 kids and wound up with just over 200 graduating, so I'd say that he was right.

  27. #2777
    We had five in my graduating class...and the principle made us draw straws..and whoever drew the best looking straw was class valadictorian!!

Size:  21.1 KBI still have 4 trays like that. I like 'em better than the ice makers. My ice maker over flowed shooting out too many cubes- so they fall out when the door opens. So, I turned off the ice-maker. I have 4 refrigerators. One in The Netherlands, one in Denmark, one in Germany, and one in USA. I also live in Canada. But there, I just share my sister's. I have 9 bicycles-2 in The Netherlands, 3 in Denmark, 3 in Germany, one in USA, and one in Canada.

    I remember when some had just green and red, and hung from a cord hanging across the street intersections. I remember when there were no street number addresses in Jordan.

    Addresses before they started street numbers were "directions" quoted about where the house, building or tent was in relations to large boulders, trees, wells, or other landmarks.

    Yeah. We have some great pictures of my brother, cousins and me dressed up like Elliott Ness & the Untouchables on Easter morning. Shoot, I remember people dressed up to shopping or to the movies. And "dressed up" did not refer to putting on a clean pair of jeans that were four sizes too big so they could fall to your knees and let people see the brand new boxers you bought. Crazy world.

    I bet I could start a business and make a mint by teaching young people how to tie their shoes.

    Yes, especially in the sixties. I have pics of me and my brother with my Dad wearing our first double breasted suits in 1968. I wanted a Nehru jacket. LOL!

    If this was prompted my my post about Jordan's street addresses, it's unwarranted. I'm only 73 years old. It was during the late 1970s that Jordan started using numbers in street addresses outside the centers of their big cities.

    I remember being able to count on getting my mail on a consistent basis. My mailman seems to think that placing it in a mailbox on my block is close enough. So much for pride in one's job.

    And also, soap. And dog food. BTW, remember these commercials:

    It is true that "Jello" gelatin is made from the ground up animal bones. When water is added to it, it "gels" up.

    It's also true that a lot of red food dye is processed from tiny red insects called cochineals. And the FDA has a standard that regulates the maximum number of rat hairs that can be detected in hot dogs and processed meat. And there are also standards for how many bug parts can be found in processed spices. There's a reason for the old quote "Nobody wants to see their sausage being made". Oh, and this:

    Is that the one where he tells us that the grease he uses is actually recycled pomade? I heard it was a good one.
