    I remember when I could go to the Rose Bay Boat Ramp with some mates and sit on the edge with a big cork spool fishing line and catch little fish. Great memories of the "Good Ol' Days"....... now it's 2013 and it's illegal unless you have a FISHING LICENCE!

    Your turn....

                50 cents or a dollar buying you the biggest supply of lollies that would normally last a week.

                    5 cents used to buy a bag of mixed lollies, in my day. i miss the days when street lights would actually turn off at night.

                      yeah but 5 cents only got me a small bag. 50 cents got me something the size of a large lunchbox full. The old man also suggested when he could fill up his holden for under $5 as well

                          Street cricket, it used to bring the neighbourhood together,
                          Bonfires around cracker night.
                          Freedom, go anywhere, do anything as long as you back by dark or the wooden spoon would come out.......them were the days.
                          Very little technology.

                          on more.

                          Milk was available in bottles.

                            Sitting in the back of the theatre rolling Jaffas down the wooden floor. Steps were even better.

                              Those were the days my friend, I thought they'd never end.....
                              We knew every kid in the neighborhood/suburb, and in post war, baby boom, Southside Brisbane, there was an awful lot of us. 40-50 kids in a class at school. Great times we had, usually doing things that we would freak out at, if we caught our kids doing now. As you said, the freedom was the biggest thing. We were out all the time and our parents weren't concerned, as long as we turned up by dark. Oh, and the cracker nights....... There were often a lot of neighborhood scores settled around that time of year, blowing up letter boxes etc. and the big neighborhood bonfires....great times.
