    I'm so old that when I was a child ..... You could roll down the back window in my mother's Mercury ...... and I got to sit on the arm - no seat belt - no car seat.... they brought me home from the hospital in a wicker basket.

    A 16 color video card was considered high end, and everyone was playing Oregon Trail and Number Munchers.

    We actually practiced hiding under our desks in school, especially after the movie Red Dawn came out.

    The fallout and tornado drills were the same for us. We had to go into the hall and duck and cover, with hands over the back of our necks. I'm not sure what good that would have done for either tornado debris or radiation.

    Once in high school we actually had to take cover in the hallway because a tornado was moving in our direction. Luckily it dissipated.

    At age 12, I had a paper route with 46 papers (the S.F. Chronicle) and got paid $25.00 per month. I spent part of it at Winchell's Donuts sometimes, where you could get a donut for 7 cents, and a creme filled bar for 15 cents. A coke cost 10 cents.

    My big purchase was a Schwinn Stingray with a banana seat, which set me back about $60.00 (which was all the money in the world to me then.)

    Mine was like this one, but blue.
