you might be, if:
you straddled a drainage ditch with your car to work underneath it.
the bottom plate for the bumper jack was left in the mud from the last time you used it.
using a bumper jack and the bumper moves several inches before it lifts the frame.
lifting the frame and suspension is still to low to change tire.
car jacked up, starts to roll and you grab the top of the bumper jack to stop it and pinches hand.
the emergency kit in trunk was; 3 quarts of oil, 2 spare tires with the cords showing, a scrap piece of lumber for the bumper jack plate and an empty coal oil can.
if you ran out of gas in-route and walked to the filling station with the coal oil can.
didn't have your own can, the filling station attendant would loan you an empty can, usually a metal anti-freeze can with a punch can opener hole in it.
his last statement to you, be sure and return the can, please.
the kitchen sink had an outside style faucet on it
and it was cold water only.
later on it had a soap dish attached to it between the faucets and it held lava soap.
you had a swing out towel rack mounted on the wall near the sink. it usually had 3 racks.
1 for hands, 1 for dishes and 1 for whatever else needed swiping.
mom hollering out; who wiped their greasy hands on my towels?
the cabinet underneath the sink had a curtain over the opening and it held all kinds of posions.
the sink had a rubber stopper with a chain attached to it.
the sink typically just drained to the outside on top of ground.
this is where you dug for your fishing worms.
the bed springs required slats and sometimes they would bounce out.
oh, the inhumanity of that.
people really did use old bed springs for tv antennas.
use a car differential on tv antenna pole to change direction of antenna.
if you were real ingenuous, the drive shaft extended inside so you could fine tune for yourself.
entering the back door without mom knowing and she hollers out; wipe your feet or don't slam the door.
the only thing you washed at night was your feet.
sliced bread came in a cellophane wrapper with a useless sticky tab to reseal.
in your 50's? the twisty ties with the expiration
date printed on them.
grass control, if any, a push reel mower.
weed control, a sling blade.
brush control, a bush hook.
saturdays as followed:
tv; westerns first, cartoons second then outside to play for awhile.
afternoon movie theater-serial, previews, cartoon and then the movie.
end of afternoon movie they would make you leave the theater.
after movie it was to the five and ten store.
not to belittle some, but that stood for five cents and ten cents.
every thing from clothes, hardware, toys and home of the cheap perfume.
stop by lunch counter only to smell and lust; no money.
walk home to hamburgers cooked in an iron skillet and an rc cola.
speaking of cartoons; remember these?
little lulu, baby huey, woody woodpecker, heckle and jeckle, speedy gonzales.
