    I thought this may be a fun thread for all the 40+ crowd here! I'll start:

    Remember when you could not wait to go to the drug store and get your photo's you dropped off a week ago?

    Remember when you were a kid at the gas station with your mom or dad? Two guys ran out to your car, checked the oil, washed the windows, filled your tank and would not let you leave without a handfull of Blue Chip stamps and a coffee mug!
