    The last time we got Yellow Pages, we were informed it was made out of a type of paper that couldn't be recycled.

    Consolation prize! The flip phone is officially back. I even think I saw a tv ad for The Razr.

    Did we talk about house and basement parties? The red or blue light in the basement? The Sliw Drag? Jamming to GQ, Heatwave, Parliament Funkadelic. Block parties?

    Yeah, we hit those way back at the beginning. I'll never forget sneaking into the basement as a kid when my folks were dancing with all of my uncles, aunts and their friends. A lot of the stuff on the new version of ABC's The Wonder Years reminds me of my experiences in the '60s and '70s. Anybody else watching it?

    Remember when people didn't mind taking a joke against themselves?

    Man, I never had an active shooter drill. The level of stress kids carry into classrooms is horrifying. I'm glad I'm not the parent of a schoolkid.

    We had air raid drills in the Fifties and had to wear dog tags with our blood types.
    Somehow, I was never frightened by it. Just seemed like a precaution.

    I remember we used to get tuberculosis tests in school. I got them almost every year in elementary school ['60s] but don't remember having one in junior high or later.
