Remember when:

*Lifebuoy soap used a fog horn to close out their commercial that went as follows:

"Singin' in the bathtub singin' with joy,

Livin' the life of Lifebuoy.

Can't help singin' 'cause I know,

Lifebuoy really stops

Beeeeeeeeeeee Ooooooooo"

*We lived the "simple life".

*If a Dragonfly flew anywhere near us we would take off like a shot! "If they get anywhere on you they can sew up your eyes and mouth" or so we were told.

*Swinging on a gate was a great way to pass the time away; and it was fun too.

*Tree houses for boys were so common as were playhouses were for girls.

*Like everything else, instead of parents helping their children build these dreams they buy them the things they the parents, always longed for.

*The excuse for buying these things is that they don't want their children to do without what they had to.

*You were told to always tell the truth because it is so easy to remember.

*A common sight was seeing a child riding a "Kiddy Car"?
