LEST WE FORGET. REMEMBER WHEN:All the girls had ugly gym slips. ** It took five minutes for the TV to warm up. Nearly everyone's Mum was homewhen the kids got home from school. Nobody owned a purebred dog. You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny. Your Mother wore nylons that came in two pieces. All male teachers wore ties and female teachers had their hair done everyday and wore high heels. You got your windscreen cleaned, oil checked and petrol served, without asking, all for free, every time.. It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents. They threatened to keep children back a year if they failed the school year. . . And they did! When a Ford Zephyr was everyone's dream car... And people went *steady* . No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition and the doors were never locked. Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles? Playing criket with no adults to help the children with the rules of the game. Bottles came from the corner shop without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger. And with all our progress, don't you wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savour the slower pace, and share it with the children of today? When being sent to the headmasters office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited you at home. Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drugs or drive-by shootings, gangs etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat. As well as summers filled with bike rides, cricket, Hula Hoops, skating and visits to the pool, eating lemonade powder or liquorice sticks. Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say, 'Yes, I remember that'? I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a Double Dare to pass it on. To remember what a Double Dare is, read on, and remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care. Send this on to someone who can still remember the Lone Ranger and PC49. How many of these do you Remember. Coca Cola in bottles. Blackjacks and bubble gums. Home milk delivery in glass bottles with tinfoil tops. Hi-If's & 45 RPM records. 78 RPM records! Adding machines (comptometers). Scalextric. Do You Remember a Time When.. Decisions were made by going 'Eeny-meeny-miney-moe'? 'Race issue' meant arguing about who ran the fastest? Catching tadpoles could happily occupy an entire day? It wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best Friends'? The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was chickenpox Having a Weapon in school meant being caught with a slingshot ? War was a card game? Cigarette cards in the spokes transformed a bike into a motorcycle? Taking drugs meant orange - flavoured chewable aspirin? Water balloons were the ultimate weapon? If you can remember most or all of these, Then You Have Lived*DURING A GOOD TIME*!!!!!!! Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their 'Grown-Up' Life.
I remember Image Children of today will have their own version, of course. I recall a while ago reading about an inscription found on the wall of an ancient tomb in Egypt. The inscription read something like, "children today don't behave the way we did when we were children." It makes me smile because it seems whatever age humans live in we are all the same about our memories of the past ... it was always better than the present.
Huffbag....I was feeling quite good before I read this post...eye cream seems to be working, managed to get in to last year's leggings earlier on today and although it needs a cut, hair not too bad! Then I read this and realised that I can remember each and every one of them...... Imagenow I feel sooooooo old!!!!

(ps..thank you for making an old lady very happy!) Image Image Image

Some of it rings bells but other parts are pure fiction. Leaving the car keys in the ignition for starters. Thievery isn't a new invention, and the only person I knew who left their keys in the ignition and kept the car had a old style Skoda and left the keys there hoping someone would steal it.

They took the key fob. Image
I remember when spelling 'you' as 'u' would have got a clip around the ear from the English teacher and the threat of being put in the 'remedial class' for dimwits
I remember the stupid "I.T.A." reading system that was used to "help" kids who had problems reading. It made things worse.

You might like to re-phrase that.

Vicky,

I may be taking your post the wrong way, but I remember when "dimwit" meant students who were not interested in learning nuttin Image. Not a reflection on their abilities - only their attitudes.

Back in those days the height of those students' misbehaviour consisted of stacking the desks in the classroom against the door and then exiting through the window.

When I was at school the system was streaming and there was a remedial class, virtually everyone in it had a mild learning disability, they were not disruptive at all, in fact the most disruptive pupils were in the middle streams probably because they had enough about them to be artful in their behaviours, much as we see today.
The current system is to put LD kids in with those who have no such problems but do have behaviour issues, the children with the behaviour issues torment those with LD's. This is an issue I have very strong opinions on mostly because my oldest child has mild LD's and suffers from this kind of thing on a daily basis. I have to say though the insults are much worse than "Dimwit" but these kids are allowed to use this kind of language but "feral" is not allowed although anti-social behaviour is Image I don't consider anti- social behaviour to necessarily mean low intelligence but clearly LD's does mean lower IQ and those children should not be mocked anymore than people of a different race, sexual preference or gender should be.

When I was at school the remedial class was just as Stacey described- kids with learning disabilities were not catered for at all in mainstream and largely not at all before 1970. I know someone from my junior school remedial class who went on to become a successful businessman. It was a different world then.
