    I won a Village People album when I was in grade school. I'm not as old as some of you. I'm embarrassed because I thought it was a good album at the time.

    I remember using my sisters Village People album for Daisy Red Rider target practice while wearing a denim jacket and a baseball shirt that said "Disco sucks long live rock n roll" (bad news bears style)! I thought it was cool the way vinyl shattered from a well placed BB shot on a cold day! Must have been shortly after Christmas, because the record was one of her presents, and the BB gun was mine! Ah! Good times!

    I remember my cousin's father banned Beatle music from their house. She had to hide her Beatle 45's. One time we went to visit them and she hid her 45's in her dresser before we went out somewhere for the day. It was one of those 100 degree and humid mid-summer days, and when we came back, her "I Want To Hold Your Hand" single had warped into an ashtray. When she saw that, she started bawling. Her Dad came into the bedroom to see what was going on and immediately saw the Beatle single. She got a real whoopin'.

    UHF channels on the TV. And you had to get up to change the channel by rotating a dial.

    Emma was fine, but you can keep the little Brady girl, and Barbara Felton, a fully mature woman who was built like a little girl. Calamity Jane on F Troop wore a mean pair of jeans. And Ginger. Maryanne who? She wasn't even mentioned by name in the original theme song. Her and the prof were "...and the rest, are here on Gilligan's Isle!"

    Julie Newmar as the Catwoman. Batman was a horse's ass. I would've had SOMETHING on that belt to make her want to bang me.

    I'm old enough to remember when "Safe Sex" meant not telling her your last name!

    obi, so where do you stand on the age old question of which one would you choose? Mary Ann or Jeannie?

    Good point Tony. Mary Ann may have been a little firmer, probably because she had to climb trees for coconuts, fend off the Skipper, etc, whereas all Jeannie had to do was fold her arms and blink to get what she wanted....

    I'd have to say Mary Ann, only because she aged so well.
    Miss Jane from F-Troop was another hotty. She came across as the dominant type......fishnets, corset, bullwhip:twisted
    IIRC, she had a whip on the show didn't she? Her characters name was 'Wrangler Jane' so.......

    Heck, almost forgot about F-troop. Yeah, Miss Jane was all that to a young kid man. That show was pretty darn funny too. Now I can't get that intro tune out of my head.

    No one had dryers. Everyone hung their clothes outside on lines to dry.
