Totally Unrelated

Who knows why these things flicker through our heads, but I'm sure this kind of thing happens to you too.  I can be watching Dancing with the Stars and I'll have something totally unrelated pop into my head.   Things like:

1.  Rod McKuen's  Listen to the Warm from the late 60's

2.  Black leather Comeback Elvis, Hawaii Elvis or Young Elvis?

3.  Athletic Boosters selling huge Mum corsages for Homecoming.

4.  The domed portable hairdryer you could sit under.

5.  Sweet Baby James

6.  Toilet tissue in colors

7.  Using orange juice cans as rollers, that were too big to fit under that hairdryer.

8.  Chocolate Soldier drinks in bottles

9.  Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue in "A Summer Place".

10.  Dallas, Knot's Landing, or Falcon Crest?

11.  Dancing on the dance floor of blinking colored lights in bars.

12.  The heavy glass 8 Ball my grandmother had that disappeared.

Oh my gosh, the more I read your blog, the more I love it! I remember all of these things. When I read about the toilet paper, it reminded me of Pay Toilets! Did you have those in your town/city?! I remember them as a young girl. They were in the Downtown Dept. Stores! Why in the world they'd have maybe one FREE stall, and then about five that you had to
insert a dime, before the stall door would open for you!
