      That is what my Aunt used in Hillrose CO. Uncle was a Trucker with his own business so often bought things in bulk lol.
      And my Grandparents in Greeley also used drums or barrels.
      Goodtimes.

        I hardly ever see them now.. the time is on the cell phones.

        Everybody has a cell phone. Seriously..
        I have not met a person in the last few years who does NOT have a cell phone.

        The only time I have been asked to lend mine to someone for a call..
        is because their battery is dead.

        Little kids at the bus stop.. old ladies... everybody .

        It is un-real when I think of who we used to be..
        not very long ago.... and how it is now.

        Just in the last decade.. our world has gotten a lot smaller.
        I know this thread really brings back memories of what we didn't have and how things have changed so much. I am 39 and can say I witnessed the beginning of the internet, cell phones, CD's, DVD,s, satelite navigation, and a ton of other things I cannot recall right now.

        It is really amazing to think in that short of a time the world has changed that much. For good and bad.

          Yes... by and large...
          thoughout history.. there was a "sameness" to the human experience.
          The printing press changed things-
          Indoor plumbing changed things..
          the light bulb changed things..
          in 1876 the invention of the telephone changed things...

          yet there was always a sameness to being human..


          this new phenomenon of each one of us walking around with a
          computer straped to our hip..

          well..
          we are actualy living as NO other humans have ever lived before.

          Instant communication. No excuses. Everything is a choice.

          If you do not stay in contact with your wife... you are CHOOSING to do so.

          The pictures we can instantly transmit in real time..
          have fundamentaly changed business.. bids... work... recreation.

          The GPS.. the online "yellow pages".... everything is instant.

          With the new 4g network...
          we can even now chat face to face with each other....
          soon.. that will be a standard for communication.
          Everyone will have that face to face feature.

          Yeah.. it is amazing how we as a people have drasticly
          changed and are living unlike any other humans before us have.

          We are really NEVER out of tuch with anyone we CHOOSE to be in touch with.

          I remember when the answering machine came out..it was amazing...
          NOW.. we did not have to sit at home waiting by the phone for an important call..
          we could actually go do something else..
          and then come home to find out later if the call came in. It was amazing.

          NOW.. well.. you know how it is now... any time anywhere... you can find me at the end of the phone.

          I think that is why texting is so popular... people are still people..
          they do not want to have to be accountable at all times.

            Great post PD. however it does make wish for the good old days when If you called, you called my house, and if I wasn't there, you called back later. Or if I was busy, there was a busy signal. I love technology but sometimes I just want to be left alone. We don't NEED to be contacted right away for anything, really. (ok family emergencies)

            Now I get blamed for never answering my phone.....

              It's like.. If you really cared.. you WOULD answer my calls. It makes me feel like ..."

                  It was around X-mas.. everybody talked about it..
                  only the "rich" kids got it...
                  but really it was like a big gift for the whole family.

                  Remember the Farrah Fawcett poster?

                  I always remember Friday nights watching TV....

                  The Partridge Family.. David Cassidy and Danny Bonaduce...
                  then after that was "Here Come the Brides"....

                  Friday night TV.. around 1972.

                  until one night.. my buddy Wayne said..
                  "Screw the TV.. meet us over at the Bowling alley."

                  I did. That was the last time I watched TV on the weekend for many years.

                  Hanging out with the gang.. (before hanging with a "gang" was a bad thing lol)
                  in the park late at night doing the things we did in the 70's..
                  meeting chicks, playing pinball, foosball... hanging out. making the scene.

                  Celebrity Sports Center. All the kids in town met there..
                  we would meet girls from all over Denver.

                  They had slot car tracks.. a pool.. bowling alley.. game room..
                  and a big dark parking lot. Tim had a van.. we'd take girls out there to "sit in the circle".

                  JJ's Fun Center in Aurora. Pinball Wizard on East Colfax. The Brick Yard on Montview.

                  Concerts in the park.. Wednesday night movies in the Park at Del Mar.

                  Scaring girls with stories of the Hatchet Lady out on the Hogback..
                  and out east at the old silos... The Albino Man.

                  Huge woodsies... partying until the sun came up... bonfires.
                  Laserium at City Park.

                  The cave at Red rocks.
                  Concerts at Redrocks...
                  climbing to the top of ship rock..
                  steps carved in teh top up there..
                  so many many concerts at redrocks.
                  (Still go there a ton)

                  Concerts at the Coliseum. Saw pink Floyd do their
                  "Dark Side o the Moon " tour... floor seats were $5.50

                  Sunday #1 at Mile High. Allman Bros, Beach Boys.
                  Sunday #2 Crosby Stills Nash and Young

                  Then they built Big Mac... saw the first show there...
                  ZZ TOP.

                  Marvin Gaye was supposed to play there first..
                  but he did not show up... there was a riot I heard.

                  Sneaking into the 3.2 clubs with a fake ID....

                  My Sweet Lass in Cherry Creek
                  The Pub on Mountview in Aurora

                  After the Fox on south Broadway
                  Dude......I am not being pollyanish at all...but all that you said just gave me chills......I cant even respond to that......

                    down on Larimer Square before LoDo was "the scene".

                    You must have seen Freddy Henchi...
