    I distinctly remember being given one from a Seattle Police officer after, as a 2yo, walking in the snow to Fred Meyers for a $3 dump truck and only having $.50.
    Store called police, police picked me up, drove me around until panicked parent (that was taking a nap with an unlocked front door) found police car and me.
    Of course, I was sitting in the front seat of the police car, in the lap of the police man, without a seat belt and enjoying that pallet piercing Astro Pop...

    Believe it or not, I just saw these at the store, but they're labeled a candy sticks. The box is definitely a cigarette looking box.

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    Frozen Margaritas. You'd buy a bucket and in it would be a bag of the mix. You cut the bag open, dump it in the bucket, add your favorite fermented cactus juice, and stick it in the freezer. I think Sauze made them.

    I never cared for them I thought they tasted really bad.

    No role models I wanted to be like. I was loyal to Hershey products made up the road. It smelled so Good driving past.

    My elementary school had ropes and ladders in the gym. One rope ladder, one beaded rope, and one naked rope. These went up to the ceiling. I think the gym teacher put two mattresses under the ropes and we had to climb.

    I am sure that they are gone. No way are they insurable nowadays.

    We climbed ropes. We threw the javelin, pole vaults, shot put, all that stuff.

    Boys also swam naked in jr highschool. People in California freak out when I tell them about that. I’m afraid all those Scandinavians in Minnesota weren’t too stuffy back in the old days.

    They were notorious for jumping naked into frozen ponds right out of the sauna.

    Anyhow, I never did that, and in school, boys and girls just got the indoor pool on different days. This was always win there was snow outside and we could not use the track, field equipment or play ball.

    And no, the girls did not swim naked. That was the first thing that everybody asked.

    Nor did they play ice hockey, but I’ll bet that has changed nowadays. Back in the old days boys played ice hockey with skates and girls did figure skating and played broom ball.

    Broom ball is the same as hockey but you play with brooms and a basketball on the ice, wearing boots.

    For third grade, my elementary school in Philly reopened after being rebuilt. The gym had all of the latest equipment. I was the first one to climb a rope all the way to the top.

    My elementary school only had a couple ropes, with no knots. I can't climb a rope to save my life. We only had the thin padded gym mats anyway. They probably wouldn't help much if someone fell.

    Not sure why anybody from California would freak out over swimming naked. They've been skinny dippin' out here for years! But yeah, things are a lot different from when I was kid. Way different! Damn I'm getting old! Haha!!

    Hated those things. They were always timed as well which made it harder

    Yep, I was on Rifle Team in HS.
    Had an indoor range in an empty building on the back lot.

    Who remembers when the centerline was made of rubber bumps, ...and if you kept your tire riding on them they would actually say (well, sounded like) "move over move over move over move over..."?

    a deep throaty sound

    Highway department had to pull them all up because ---- cars were having head-on collisions due to driving the centerline just to hear it talk!
