Remember all of them-loved the Fifties !! Glad I got in those times ! Thanks.
We named our daughter Troy back in 1962. My husband always said Heavens to Murgatroy which made her laugh. All through her life until he passed away his nickname for her was Murgy.
Didn't read them all, but the "jalopy" one was too funny.
OH loved these, sadly I remembered ALL !
I remember those sayings.
Me too. I still say holely moley.
Thanks for a walk down memory lane.
I still use 'pshaw'. Also, piffle. patooie, phooey, crymony, patootie and cawabonga (Howdy Doody and Ninja Turtles).
I told my niece she was a Cutie Patootie, and she asked me what a Patootie was. lol.
Not yet mentioned but I remember wearing: jodhpurs and also poodle skirts with big crinolines
The 30's and the 40's bought the 50's with tears, stamina, endurance and their lives. The 50's and early 60's were the best time to grow up for most of us.
For sure! My classmates and I are the leading edge of the baby boomers, born in 1946. Dr Spock wrote his book saying that parents are smart enough to know, with his help, what is right for their children. People like my parents who put their wedding on hold until The War was over were ready to settle down and start a family. Schools and whole neighborhoods were built for us. TV was new, and that showed us kids what other kids were like. We felt part of a group, with kids all over the country. OK, we were spoiled. But it was a great time to grow up. Now since my classmates and I reached retirement age, there are more services for "Seniors" and all sorts of new devices and aids, better wheelchairs and walkers... Large print books, computers that help older people if we take the effort to learn to use them. So many good inventions, made for us adored post-WWII babies.
I grew up white in Maryland in the 50's. ... Yeah, those were the good old days. Such great memories.
Yep, I agree. That was unfair, violently unfair. As I said, it was great for my classmates and me. We weren't even aware of kids like us who did not have the opportunities, the basic civil rights, that we had.
I remember everyone of these, and still use a lot of them, betcha bottom dollar!

I think you are "throwing the baby out with the bath water"...the basic article was good and fun. The words and phrases she cited are gone forever to be replaced by the effects of technology. I grew up in the late 40's-50's had a great childhood and as a child ignorant and unaware of anything political as I believe children's lives should be.
