So. Was the Filter Queen the model for shop vacs? Or were shop vacs the model for Filter Queen?
funny story about those bob evans sells them niether me or my wife had ever seen them before, so when our boy had bought some and offered em to us we each popped on in our mouth and started chewing on them they were nasty, like chewing on candle way once we figured out the "trick" to popping the top and drinking them like real soda they got a little better
This phone is mounted on my dining room wall and it's connected and it works. It took me a while to do the research and figure out how to make it work but the darn thing does work!! This is sitting on my bar. It also took much research to make it work via an MP3 player (hidden in the lower box). You put the coin in, push the buttons and it plays the song that you picked. It took me forever to get the song cards printed and in the correct order to match the push button mechanism.:
I remember these used in grade school, but what were they called? For the life of me, i can't remember.
Overhead projector, when the teacher was out of the room we would make animal shapes on the wall with our hands on the projector!!
To this very day, in my old age, i can remember mom always saying to me, "Don't leave that refrigerator door open forever" Boy, i always hated that. Some weird thing that you remember forever.
Sounds like our mom's could have came from the same gene pool. lol
"Close that door! The beer will get warm!" I think that was Dad and not Mom
My old man would sometimes have a few cans of either Schaefer or Schlitz, beer in the fridge, which i think was cheap rot gut beer, back in the day.
Penny gumball machines. Mom would send me and my sister to the corner store, at the beginning of the street, to buy a loaf of bread, which cost 22 cents, back then. She gave us a quarter to buy the bread. We could use the 3 cents to buy gumballs out of the machine, by the door of the store. We would fight like cats and dogs who would get the third gumball.
Ride the Honda Mini Trail down to the station with a quarter, fill it up, get change back.
I liked Schlitz. Now Brew 102 was a whole different story. Stuff was nasty. We thought we were adventurous if we showed up with Primo or Foster's Lager.
Is that the Columbia Record House? Wow, i did that back in the 60's.
I had the Aurora 24 hours of LeMans HO set when I was a kid. Great fun to play with in the dark with the cars having lighted headlights and the glow-in-the-dark guard rails and road stripes. I think I even have a couple of the cars in a box somewhere.
one of my favorites as an 11 year old kid
I had the Aurora golden gate bridge set, it came with a porches and some other foreign car, I had a HO super blue dodge Daytona and a orange 55 Chevy nomad that were my favorites.
Jeff this a great thread, brings back lots of good and fun memories. I have you by about 6 years in age and remember having, seeing or wanting most of the stuff thats been posted Kevin
My parents had this EXACT coffee maker. ...it had a little amber light that came on when it was done.....my dad would be holding the newspaper reading... When that light came on, all 3 of us kids would yell "light's on!" And watch the newspaper shake as we startled him!!!! Jeff
I figured most of us are old enough to have a connection to these things! Jeff
