    A few words for you to peruse. If you are of "a certain age" they will be familiar to you. Others of a younger set will say "Huh?"
    Do you remember......

    fender skirts
    curb feelers
    steering knobs
    suicide knob
    neckers knobs
    Continental kits
    emergency brakes
    foot feed
    clutch
    dimmer switch
    running board
    store-bought
    Coast to coast
    world wide
    wall-to-wall
    in a family way
    expecting
    Unmentionables
    picture show
    rat fink
    percolator
    DynaFlow
    Electrolux
    SpectraVision

    Some words aren't gone, but are definitely on the endangered list. The one that grieves me most is 'supper.'
    Now everybody says 'dinner.' Save a great word. Invite someone to supper. Discuss fender skirts.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Or curb feelers.

    Rat Fink and "Big Daddy" Roth. What a guy, a true American artist.
    I dream of the day a chicken can cross the road without it's motives being questioned.

    Open a supper club.

    I think fender skirts is dead though. I recall curb feelers and I own a car with a clutch!
    Be Not Afraid.
