Just today I had to explain to my 15 year old daughter that you didn't use to be able to get groceries at Walmart or Target but had to go to a whole separate grocery store, so I guess I'm old enough to have lived before the days of Super Walmart and Super Target 😊

I was in college when I went to my first Walmart....an hour drive from our college town.

I also remember when MTV started.....and they actually showed music videos.

I don't remember my first Wallmart trip, but I do remember when the full length video for Michael Jackson's Thriller came out on MTV!

I remember that, too!

Now thinking of musical memories, I once saw Sonny and Cher perform live in Las Vegas.

I used to make the blue light special announcements.  Kmart was my job in high school and summer breaks from the first year or two of college.

It's actually been relatively recently that we've gotten a Walmart near us.  NJ was one of the last states they came to and they were in South Jersey for a few years before they came up north.

My roommates and I were very excited to watch the world premiere of the Thriller video on MTV. We also watched a "making of" documentary about We Are The World. 

I'm old enough to have had roller skates with a key. These

With HBO's new Chernobyl miniseries and a book that came out recently dh and I were talking about how it was the Swedes who first detected the radiation and how the Soviet government was first denying it happened, then denying it was serious.

I came across this (11 Modern antiques kids today have never seen) when looking for a good picture of the roller skates and key. I remember all except the milk chute. We did however, have a metal milkbox on the front porch. You put your empty bottles in it the night before delivery day and the milkman would replace it with full bottles of milk in the morning. I hated milk. Still hate it.

What?  MTV doesn't show music videos anymore?  What do they show?

Last time I checked it was all reality shows, but that was a LONG time ago.  They haven't shown music videos for over 20 years.
