We had a water bucket and a dipper in the kitchen; I can remember ice crystals on the top of the water bucket several times in the winter. Ah, the good old days!
    I also remember drinking from a dipper and a bucket. Cooking on a kerosene range, heating with coal and wood. One car, one tv no telephone, microwave, video game, DVD player, cable, dryer or mot other things we take for granted. But, I had mom at home, home cooked meals, fresh milk and eggs, woods to play in, I could shoot a rabbit or squirrel with a .22, make trot lines, trap furs, build a fire, prime a pitcher pump. Poor, not me!

    I'm just 50, but I remember growing up in Eastern Oregon. Out there, you didn't call someone to fix or repair every little thing that stopped working correctly. You learned how to fix your "stuff" yourself. If a guy had to call someone to fix their car, or a non-functioning light switch or the lawnmower, everyone sort of looked at that guy a little funny.

    Of course, we raced around on dirt bikes in nothing but a pair of shorts and tennis shoes and rode in the back of pickups down the freeway too.

    I am only 61 years old. I remember when a Promise was made - it was kept, when A "Man's Word" was His BOND, when a Handshake was all that was needed to seal a deal. On the lighter side, i remember when you bought at least 8 gallons of gas, you got a free glass or a towel. Does anyone remember "Dino" from the Sinclair gas stations?

    I remember catching lightning bugs, and setting on the front porch at night listening for the first whipporwills which meant we could start going barefooted.

    Not sure but I think "Dino" took the easy way out and became Fred and Wilma's pet...
