I remember when skates were rolling on the hardwood on McCurdy instead of balls.

I remember writing 10 page papers in college on a typewriter before the UBC campus Okanagan.

I remember chatting with my girl friends on our only phone which was attached to the wall in the kitchen and rotary.

Renting a VCR because no one owned them and they would come in a giant suitcase. Our friends were lucky as they had a Beta.
