I too got 18. I'm going to go call Shady Pines Nursing Home and see if they have room available. Getting old ain't for wimps.

Great, I got 23. Ken if there are any and I mean any wise cracks, you're in trouble. BTW, you should remember more than 18, you're only a few months younger than me.

I got 18! Where is my rocking chair?! What was it again I got 18 of? Oh, no! I'm older than dirt?

I got 12! But, you know, there's a Sonic Drive-In about a mile from here so I wonder about some of those things . . .

I got 4-I assumed they were Talking about Drive in Theaters. There is a Drive in Theater still running here.

I got 15 - I don't have kids & I am only 31 how can I be older then dirt? I go to the drive in at least once a month in the summer. Our cottage still has the metal wash tub and ice cube trays. I should have been born in another era!

Duh, drive-in movies! There was one in the town we lived in last year, in CA. Still recent enough for my kid to remember it. Though she's clueless about vinyl records or for that matter tv without cable or a remote.

MY score is 24!! Some of that stuff isn't so far back - I'm only 44. The only one that I never saw, firsthand, was Howdy Doody. We never got that, here.:girly1: :girly2:
post #15 of 19
I got 13 - and I'm not even 30!
post #16 of 19
I got 2...which is good because I am only 19! I don't want to be old. (no offense to anyone)

Hey, Spooky, getting old beats the alternative!:tounge2:

You young kids don't know how to handle a situation like this!
What happened is that your mother told you about it; it's a false memory. Or--you saw it in an old movie or tv show. Everyone has watched Lucy. My problem is I REALLY remember 23 of these! But I'm young at heart!
