Lost or Forgotten

I'm going to dedicate today's post (see that makes it sound like I post every day as if you could set your watch by it) to all things lost or fogotten; the obsolete, the ridiculous. No words or comments here. See if you recognize and/or remember all of these...

Nice, very nice. I never understood the "jelly shoe" they made your feet sweat terribly and you slipped all over the place in them...at least I did. I hated those stupid shoes.

It was really gross in the summer, when girls would wear the clear one's, cuz their feet would get all sweaty and the clear turned to a yellowish color....yeah, nice!

I get a shocking amount of those. A friend got a book for my birthday a few years ago filled with these "remember this" things. It is awesome, but most of yours are sadly not in it. I love 45's. I always lost those yellow discs.

ACK! There's no answers anywhere? I remembered at least half. I had a Max Headrom (sp?) t-shirt in 6th grade. I wore it with my white Reebok high tops and my jeans folded at the ankle and rolled up a couple of times. HOT! I also wore a big bow and the ever popular sterling silver heart accessories.

A few of those items were before my time, but I knew what they were.

What about click clacks? Those pendulous noise makers that would leave yer arms black and blue if ya messed up.
S&W green stamps brings back Brady Bunch nightmares...

Stomp.

S - Being a guy, guess I cannot relate to the jelly shoe (at least I won't admit it)
K - Yes! Those 45 disc converters were like the other sock..you could never find them.
F&D - To get the answers you have to have to purchase the teacher edition of my blog. Still got the MH T-Shirt? Can you say EBAY??$$$
SUZ: Come on now...you had an ant farm ;)
SM - I still have my original click clacks. I didn't include them here just because I'd used them on a post earlier this year. Check out my August archives, there is a picture in there along with Wacky Packages.

Remember CDs?! I used to have hundreds of them before mp3 players came along. If you scratched them even a little, they would skip! Things are definitely better today.
