Thankfully I never had that medicine, we were a vicks vapor rub family. Between that and the Tussin we could cure anything

We used merthiolate......same but apparently burned worse than mercurochrome.....and apparently just as bad for you........

I know them all well....my mom made coffee in that pot every morning for 49 years, I think. Hence, why I do not drink coffee. I still have one of those meat pounder things, and the potato masher. LOVED to play with my dad's slidy address book thing!! I don't know if he had any actual addresses in it, lol. And, I'm pretty sure there are still a couple of those toilet paper dolls lurking somewhere in my house (my mother-in-law was a knitter....)

And, mercurochrome was awesome! Although, my family was partial to curing every ailment with Listerine and Vick's Vaporub.

I recognize some things, others not so much.

This is before my time and for some reason it blows my mind that these snacks came in foil.

I remember most of them, but not all.

This one really takes me back though, especially since its the holiday season.

I definitely pre-date pop tops. And where is the "78" option on the turntable?

One of the Trader Joe's I worked at still used a percolator to make coffee for customers (remember when you could have samples at the store?)
So many people would ask us why the coffee tasted better there than at home, I loved telling them why.

Number 34 gave me a little trouble but then I remembered that Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge.
