    Re: Things you grew up with you might consider "white trash" now

    I liked the citrus ones (green and orange) and the purple ones. I thought if I ate the purple ones I'd get smarter.

    Oooh, I have alot. Let's see.
    • Riding on the hood of the car on the way to the river when I probably should have been in a carseat.
    • Getting a bag of assorted used action figures as an extra bonus when we did our back to school shopping at Goodwill.
    • My siblings and I jumping off the second story patio onto a matress laying in the backyard.
    • Demolition derby at the fair.
    • Eating PB&J for lunch every day.
    • Wheel barrel rides.
    • Tire rides, when I was little enough.
    • My mom keeping a wooden spoon in her purse to hit us with.
    • Those little frozen hamburgers.
    Wow, I totally forgot how white trash we were. At least our parent took us to DL every once in while.

    Juice is being generous. They were sweet colored water pops.

    -My parents used to take us to Sizzler for "all you can eat salad bar Sundays" especially during growth spurts. And they used to tell us to load up! I would eat 10 plates and thne 2 dessert plates.

    -We had an extra freezer that my dad used to buy milk on sale and then freeze it.

    yeah, we had shag carpet, but when it went out of style it was changed. We also had velvet pictures, a lot of wrought iron stuff and a night in armor. Our house was scary and dark. My mother put all this really harsh texture on the walls. If you hit it, it hurt. We didn't have central air or heat. We had wall heater s and a huge fireplace and a swamp cooler.

    We sold that house in 1989. The scary thing is when we went back to visit the new owners let us take a look inside. This was about 15 years later and it was decorated the same. the same paint, wallpaper, carpet...it was like going back into a time capsule...scary...

    THANK YOU!

    30 years from now will people be calling all those Hybrid cars, flat screen TVs and churros "white trash"?

    We never had a brand new car until 1977. Always either hand me downs my dad bought off my uncle, or beat up old cars. Like the 1964 Nova "3 on the tree" dad bought in like 1975. I remember going with him to Pacoima to get it. Granted it was only 11 when we got it, and looking back today a 1996 car doesn't seem that old. But even back then that car looked old and was a P.O.S.!

    Ditto the plastic runners covering the carpet. Because those are so much more attractive than walked-on carpet!

    Marshmallow Creme in and on everything.

    Riding 4-wheelers and 3-wheelers on the big dunes on the Oregon coast...without a helmet. Yeehaw!

    We had an entire set of Peanuts characters velvet paintings.

    Fake stained glass mirror over the couch, that my dad made himself.

    Coffee table and end tables my dad made.

    Our hi-fi was on a ginormous stained/varnished spool.

    Our hugeass black bean bag held a place of honor in the living room in every place we lived.

    My first bike was a dollar at the flea market in San Diego.

    Meatloaf once a week.

    Tater tots with gravy on them for breakfast sometimes.

    then playing tricks on unsuspecting people by turning it upside down, so the spikey side was up, and laughing as they jumped up and down!!)

Riding bikes around the block by ourselves, swimming at friends' houses, climbing the huge trees in our front yard. And when the weather started to change, playing barefoot outside after dark and your feet were FREEZING but you didn't want to stop playing long enough to go in and get shoes on for fear of missing something fun or have the magic of your pretending disappear once you got back... *sigh*
    *sigh* how i wish it was still like that!!! If my kids did even one 100th of what I did as a kid, i would have a heartattack!! *sigh*
