record players and cassette tapes--No microwaves yet, what was cable?  that was unheard of-and no computers in the house and still learned typing with a type writer in school-also banana seat bikes and penny candy actually was a penny--I did--

Anyone else?

I'm 19, so most of those were around, we had a cassette player. I think microwaves and cable were around, we didn't have them, we also didn't have a computer, but that might have just been because I had an unusual childhood. I got my bike at a dump, so it was a banana seat, and they still have penny candy.
