Comments: I am trying to find out about a product from the 60's, It was Half & Half Potato Chips in a Foil Bag. They were salty,and great.I believe they were produced in Saratoga N.Y.
Admin reply: A difficult product to research since it was a regional one. I can't find anything on it.

Comments: I really enjoyed your site. Seems we have almost identical memories. I too got my arm stuck in one the older washing machines up to my arm and was put in a sling. The town I was from is San Pedro..now usually called the Port of Los Angeles. It's still San Pedro but LA got their hands on the port now. San Pedro was a small town that everyone knew each or have seen them around. We'd go out and play all day and come home before the street lights when on. No creeps running around ready to pounce on you. On Facebook we have a group for people that grew up there. Thank you for sharing your memories of such a great town growing up. I actually feel sorry for today's kids.
Admin reply: Thank you Gloria for sharing. Perhaps we were not unique. I bet there are others who shared the same memories of growing up in a great town just like Circleville, Ohio and your town.

Comments: Enjoyed your site & getting ready for a 50 year class reunion. Excited & sad all at the same time. Anxious to see my friends & classmates but sad that some have passed on either in Viet Nam or other reasons.
Admin reply: Thank you LeAnne for visiting. It is sad to think about the classmates that have passed on. My class has lost 25. Have fun at your 50th reunion.

Comments: Being born in '44, I certainly do remember the 60s, and recognized a lot of expressions on the list. I've always supported the 'underdog', so of course I supported the protesters during the 60s/early 70's, even though my Old Lady didn't. One college slang expression not on the list is 'first-nighter', which referred to oollege girls who would sleep with a guy on the first date. That's also about the time that the 1-10 beauty rating scale started on college campuses.
Admin reply: Thank you for stopping by and sharing your memories Lowell.

Comments: I was just reviewing some of the dances that went with what songs! Boy, did that bring back loads of memories! We had the best dances, the best music, the best musicians, etc. You name it, we claimed it! And the really neat thing about it was the best musicians were groups as well as soloists!
Admin reply: I can't argue with that Charlotte. Thanks for signing the guestbook.
