You remember when Burger King gave out cool shit in their kids meals.. Like note pads, the piccolo, and some stupid straw thing that you blew to make a strofoam ball magically float.

(I don't think mcdonalds had caught onto this yet... But they at least had those "coke spoon" coffee stirers that were good for catapulting crubs with.)

The milkman delivered to the house to a little metal insulated box on the porch. You could leave a note if you wanted something other that the usual delivery. Milk was not homogenized and had cream on the top. Glass bottles with a cardboard cap under foil. Quart bottles, not half gallons as I recall.

.. you've ever had a grandma put "mercurochrome or merthiolate" on a scrape or cut.  (It was the stuff that stained your skin a bright red-orange color and it stung like a mother!)  ;P
My mom used that stuff on me... :'(

You lived in a small town and garbage pick up was by horse and wagon.
