    Ever run into those 'nostalgic' posts, photos, and memes on the social media?

    I do ... I was born WAY WAY back in the 'before' time of the early 1970's and I cringe a little when people my age post nostalgic stuff about how 'hard' it was ;)

    Then ... I started running into nostalgic posts about the 1990s and 2000s ... what????

    I must be getting old!

    Starting this VERY tongue-in-cheek thread for 'nostalgia' ... but I'll be going a little bit farther back than my on 'time'

    "What's in the ice box?"

    "What the heck *IS* an ice box?"

    Duh ... it's a box with ice in it!

    Like when the radio station starts talking about reaching way way back for a hit from yesterday and you remember when the song came out..... and had it on a record?
