  1.  Drive In Movie theaters.  Both Julie and I remember doing this.  How cool was it to be able to sit in your car and watch a movie in your car?

  2. Record Players.  Leigh Ann mentioned one of these to her 11 year old son and he had no idea what she was talking about.  And remember the ones that use to come on the back of a cereal box?

  3. Typewriters.  Do you remember “now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their county”?  If so, then you most likely took typing in high school, too.

  4. A rotary phone.  Leigh Ann used to have a contest with her cousins to see who could dial the phone the fastest.

  5. No remote control to anything.  We used to have to get up off the couch to turn the channel.  Kids were the remote control back then.

  6. Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Leigh Ann asked Hailey if she wanted Kentucky Fried Chicken for lunch and Hailey asked her what it was.  She explained it was the chicken place she liked.  Hailey said “oh you mean KFC?”

  7. Encyclopedias.  Now we just Google.  Do they even sell encyclopedias anymore?

  8. Remembering someone’s phone number.  Now they are stored in your cell phone.  Both Leigh Ann and Julie are guilty of this now.  Neither one of them knows their mothers phone numbers.  They just select “mom” on the phone and it dials.

  9. Card catalogs used to be the way you look up a book in the library.  Speaking of Libraries, not as many as those around as there used to be.

  10.  Manual car locks.  No more leaning over the front seat to unlock the back seat.  We have to admit this is a great invention.

  11. Cars without seat belts.  Yes, this used to make them.  We used to stand up in the backseat as our parents drove all over the place.
  12. Flash Cubes.  I loved the smell of them when they’d go off.  Julie thinks I’m crazy.  Now you even have built in flash with cell phone cameras.  They are so ancient we can’t even find a picture of one!200027016 001 20 Things Your Kids Will Never Know About
  13. Speaking of Camera’s, The Polaroid Camera.  How great was it to take a photo and have it pop right out of the camera?

  14. Inserting a VHS into A VCR to record your favorite TV show.  Say hello to the DVR and TiVo.  I have both while Julie has neither.  If fact I think I might be the only one to still have a VCR.

  15. Maps.  While you can still buy paper maps not many people use them.  Most people rely on a GPS system of some kind.  Cell phones even have them built in.

  16. Sonic Booms.  We remember hearing them as kids and thinking how cool they were.  When’s the last time you heard one?  Been a long time.

  17. Cursive hand writing.  Most schools no longer teach it.  We remember being so excited to learn to write our name in cursive.

  18. Roller Skate wheels made of wood.  I must admit I don’t remember this but Julie does.  But I did have roller skates and not blades.  We loved spending every Friday and Saturday night at the roller rink.  Couple skate anyone?

  19. Tape Recorders.  We used to record our favorite songs on the radio.  Sometimes waiting hours for the DJ to play it.  Now you can just download it.

  20. When you had to know how to spell.  Now it’s all about auto correct and abbreviations.  LOL!    We must admit that spell check has saved us a ‘tiem’ or two.
