Saturday Night Retro

Wow, it seems like forever since I've been home on a Saturday night.  Shooting competitions, Boy Scout campouts, and a myriad of other activities have kept me hopping.  I was tempted to go to bed when the kids did tonight, but I decided to soldier on.

This has been stuck in my head all week.  It's a great song, so it hasn't been too annoying, though Joshua did mention that I've been singing it a lot, so I guess it's not entirely in my head.

That led me to this.

And this.

(which Husband does not care for, but to each his own, right?)

So there ya go.  Golden Earring to Edith Piaf in two easy steps.

How about a bit of retro fluff?  Here's a pic of my sister, a friend whose name I've forgotten, and me in about 1972.

Joshua saw this and exclaimed, "YOU WERE A BUNCH OF HIPPIES!!!"  Hehe.  I think our friend is flashing the Girl Scout symbol.  That cracks me up.

Ok, how many of you remember Space Food Sticks?

We just called them food sticks, but most of the info I've found calls them Space Food Sticks.  Here's an awesome commercial for them.

My sister, brother and I loved those things.

What was your favorite snack as a kid?  Share in the comments.

  1. I've been thinking about those things for years & I'd describe them to people & no one could figure out what I was talking about! and then tonight the hubby said something about "space food sticks" and it totally clicked - that was it! And yes - me too - I only remember them in the red/blue box as "fodo sticks" - but it's them & we loved them! I don't know if I want to try the reproduction versions they've made - or just remember how good they seem in my mind :-)
