Throwback Thursday doesn't always have to involve old photographs. I thought it would be fun to tie in old concepts and products from the past. Check out the four products below and tell me what happened to them...
Then, there were expressions and definitions that changed...for example, a troll was just a character in a children's book or an ugly doll. The "mailman" walked your street. You had a paperboy who delivered your paper on his bike. And speaking of bikes, I won a "three-speed English Racer" in a Cleveland Plain Dealer contest that was the greatest bike ever!
Now go back to just the last 10-15 years...I found my old Palm Pilot the other day. And I can only laugh over how cool it was. Then came my Blackberry; again, it was slick. I was crushed when I lost my Blackberry while at IUSA in Nashville. I immediately hit the Verizon store in Nashville and paid top dollar for a replacement.
Feel free to add your memories from your own walk down "Nostalgia Lane"; if there are enough of you, I'll publish another post with your additions.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
