	I know this is not Histology related and some may have a few unkind words to 
say about this. But there are times when the stress level gets high that one 
just has to kick back and remember the slower and kinder days.  Enjoy. 

	I counted 19, not good. We had one of those bottles on the ironing board 
too. AND I remember all but the soldering iron on the gas burner. Just not 
one of my better days.

B: Older than dirt....... 

	My Dad was cleaning out my grandmother's house and he 
brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top 
was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately 
what it was, but my daughter had no idea. 

	She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or 
something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end 
of the ironing board to sprinkle" clothes with because 
we didn't have steam irons. 

	Man, I am old. 
C: How Many Do You Remember?? 

	Head lights dimmer switches on the floor 
Ignition switches on the dashboard 
Heaters mounted on the inside of the fire wall 
Real ice boxes [Ask your Mom about that] 
Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards. 
Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner. 
Using hand signals for cars without turn signals. 


	Don't forget to pass this along!! 
Especially to all your really "young" friends.
