    Talking I Remember when I was a Boy

    Been thinking about a "I remember, ..... when I was a boy" thread.
    Anyhow,
    Yesterday my daughter-in-law came over for a few hour visit, with one of her kids.

    While they were there, and out of the blue, our grand son says to me, " Pop, were there Dinosaurs alive when you were little ?".

    Now the first thing that crossed my mind, was that my daughter-in-law had set it up to take the piss out of me. (Ok, Im gunna run with this one).

    I said to him, sure there was, I remember when I was a boy we had to walk a long way to school, the roads were all dirt and lots of bush, then you would hear a loud noise and trees being pushed over, we would run real fast and they would chase us. What was more scary, was that we had to keep ducking all the time as we ran because Dinosaur birds would be trying to peck your head. Thats one reason why older people can run faster than you, because we had to be fast to runaway from Dinosaurs.

    Ha! didnt bite, payback to the Daughter-in-law. I looked at her and said, ha!! didnt work, wasnt bitting.
    I then found out that she had nothing to do with it it .

    Ended up putting the young bloke straight. My wife looked at him and said, "poppys a nut".
    Thanks Hun, (I was being sarcastic) .

    Now, where was I going with this, oh yeh

    What is your I Remember... when I was Boy

    I remember.... when I was a boy, I could get get up out of a chair, or bend over to pick something up and you would hear nothing. These days, when I do those things I hear myself making these strange noises, things like, aahhhh, errrrrrrr, owooooohhhh and some that I have no idea how to spell.

    I remember... when I was a boy. Some petrol station had brands, like Atlantic, Neptune and Total

    I remember...

    Happy pants
    Cross colour jeans
    Hypercolour shirts

    First bitumen road in our area and all the kids swarmed it to skateboard.

    Going to our local forest to get chased by the older kids on motorbikes. We called the area "the chase". Now it's an estate called the chase and street name Chase Road.

    Getting the old mans records out playing Pink Floyd trying hard not to scratch them...lol

    I remember when there was NO TV, all there was , was The air adventures of Hop Harrigan and the Smokey Dawson show along with Dad n Dave, all listened to on the Little Nipper radio.
    Sitting on the floor as we had no chairs.
    I remember a Joey kept in a sugar bag hanging on the kitchen door, and making Fairies houses out of sticks and setting fire to the hayshed (aged 4)
    I remember stepping on a rabbit dung heap and getting snapped by a rabbit trap my dad had set.
    We trapped a wild cat, it got away with a rabbit trap and lived under the house, us kids were petrified to go outside.
    Darn those rabbit traps were cruel, but those were the days.
    Still remember it all, even 60 years later lol
    Cheers, the ferret.

    I remember asking my granny, in all seriousness, if she had ever been to space.
