Remember when suitcases had to be carried instead of rolled? Or when an airline ticket was a booklet of pages separated by carbon paper? Maybe you remember when Lou Gehrig held the Major League record for consecutive baseball games played.

I remember when you still had a mille

A MILL, MIL or MILLE is 1/10th of a US cent or 1/1000th of a US Dollar. In the United States, it is most used in gasoline prices,$0.009 is equal to nine mils, it is also used when discussing taxes on land and prices of electricity.

I can remember Blue Laws. The only store that was open on Sunday was Walgreens, and only 1/2 the store was open. I learned to drive in the mall parking lots on Sunday because no one was there.
