Do You Remember This...?


Time again for some smiles from the past.

Being an old man, I remember quite a few of these. I thought you might think back a lot of years...and see if you do. Just to be doing something a bit different for today, OK?



Or how about this one?



How about one more?



Just a bit of nostalgia for a Saturday! Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a while!

I do remember some of these and I do wonder where you get all this stuff! Funny, though, I use Maxwell House and even though my Mr. Coffee gurgles and burps, it doesn't sing to me like the old stove top percolator! Imagine, when booking a Hertz rental asking if they still offer the "20 months to pay" plan! As an adult, I am trying to remember why one would need a 12 page manuel for the decoder. My final thought, Ashley would love Armour Star franks if she was allowed to pick one up out of the flower bed and eat it!! She does tend to like "fresh" things!

Gee, Mister Hermit, sir...Anonymous sort of left you the newest generation of soon-to-be-classic ads, huh?

I love the old ads...they aren't as loud or frenetic as modern advertising and nowhere near as offensive. Audio assault, today's stuff.

I could use the coffee today, sir. Up until three, awake at seven, mind spinning its wheels and won't let me be. Ugh. Stupid brain.

Shade and Sweetwater,

I love those old commersials! It´s only about twenty years since we got commercial tv here, so when we went to the movies it was a must to come early so we didn´t miss the commercials :-) :-) Today we come late to the movies :-) :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hey Tony...
Scary to think that e can remember this stuff, huh?

I'm thinking that older is better!

Hey, thanks for coming by!


Hey Sis...
I think I had one of those decoder things, but can't be sure! I would probably need all 12 pages, though!

I appreciate your visit today!


Hey K...
Sorry that you aren't getting any sleep! Must be a guilty conscience or something! Hope you can at least take a nap later!

Thanks for coming by today!

HermitJim said...

Hey Crister...
Man, e used to get a lot of them...and still do!They used to be more fun to watch than now!

Thanks for coming by today!

:::snort::: If I HAD a conscience...

Hmm...maybe I feel bad because I made TWO pumpkin spice cakes in the last two weeks, and The Hermit didnt' get ANY.

Nah.

:-D

Shade and Sweetwater,
K

HermitJim said...

Hey Jesse...
Time sure does fly! Some of these things are as fresh in my mind as they ever were!

Why is everyone and everything getting so much older...except for you and me?

Thanks for coming by, buddy!

TEAM HALL said...

hahahaha! Those were priceless... Thanks for the giggle, Jim.
Have a marVELous weekend, my friend!

HermitJim said...

Hey Cath...
I could watch these old things for hours...they sure bring back some memories!

You're right about them being funny...especially by today's standards.

Thanks for dropping by today!

you know where I grew up, They were behind the times about 20 years so I too goto see some of those commercials. mostly on rerun shows though. I think if they made some new comercials using some high profile actors in it in Black and White old Style, They would be the talk of any town. I can see a black and white George Clooney pushing VIAGRA OR ENZYTE in my minds eye. Am I twisted or what!

Catman said...

Brylcream, man that brings back memories.

5 AM and my dad shouting and cursing because he put it on his toothbrush.

HermitJim said...

Hey OGT...
People would complain if they had to watch some black and white TV, I'll bet!

George Clooney pushing VIAGRA? Man, that would be something!

Hey, thanks for coming by, buddy!


Hey Catman...
Boy, deo I remember the one or two times I did that very thing! NASTY!!!

Gotta love the memories that come out of these old commercials!

Thanks fot coming by, my friend!

Thanks for making me feel old this morning... I'm going back to bed, and waiting for someone to bring me a cup of Maxwell House coffee.
Oh, and some Ben Gay!
