"Get your fanny movin"............"Hey Bub"

I use to use the "Get your fanny movin" until I started living in britian, 'fanny' in britian is not all that great to use, especially to a gal.

'Bub' came from german immigrants and they pronounce it 'boob' meaning 'boy'

OH shit!! I just realized, I may be getting old, not only do I remember most of these terms, I still use a lot of them today, hey, but that's cool, don't really care, I'm living in fat city now and life is good.
I'm just glad I still have the memories, and was blessed to live in those great times.
These youngsters today will never know how America "used" to be.
Poor dumb bastards

I remember my dad saying "He who passes on hills and curves is not a man of iron nerves...he's crazy!" Might have been a Burma Shave ditty or some such.

I went to the mens workwear store the other day and asked for some galluses. I got this blank look from the ladies working there. Had to ask for suspenders to get what I needed.

I was a Hippy in 1965 till 1968 then I was in the U. S. Army for a long time. I heard some different words for normal things. Most I can not type here but I believe a lot of you G I types will remember. Sorry to ramble on but got to tell you all a story that happen to me last week. I went to Wal-mart and ask a young lady if they had turn tables for sale? I got a deer in the head lites look and a blank stare. Good thing I did not ask for a stylest, needle for my hi-fi. The world has changed in my short visit to this life. Good memories fellows Don in Indiana

Back in the early 70s I had all Pioneer, turntable, Amp/Tuner, Reel to Reel (my fav), cassette player and.......two round marble top walnut floor all around sound speakers. Some swore to Teac, Panasonic, Sony, etc but I was a Pioneer soldier!!!!

"and make it snappy!...." {Do it fast, quickly, hurry up.} My most favorite '20s-'30s saying. I picked it up from the old movies on TCM.

What's a pound sign, other than an outdated unit of money? It's always been a hashtag here.
