likely because you've been gone 30 years. I'm alive barely 30 years, and I understood plenty of the things on the list but there were others about places that closed when I was 6 or so, like Paragon Park, or shows that aired before I was born, like Major Mudd. Just sayin'

"You bought your engagement and wedding rings in the Jeweler's building on Washington Street"

Bingo. And you bought on the top floor from a wholesaler because your mother knew someone in the business....

That was one of the funnier ones on the list, wasn't it? I don't actually remember what floor we bought the rings on, maybe it was the top floor, lol.

Crazyworld, you were on Bozo? Did you get any prizes? I remember a show that used to be on right before Bozo, something like Uncle Bob or Brother Bob or something like that.

Funny Casey....I was the only kid there in a party dress on Bozo. My cousin was on Major Mudd. Wasn't it Big Brother???? Not sure but we weren't allowed to watch it because when the guy was still on the air he was heard saying "now get these little bast**ds outta here".

We both bought our rings also at the Jeweler's Building. In the 70's the guy's name was Herb Shuster. We did get good buys though.

That might have been the guy, Crazy. I remember he was a very good salesman.

I disagree with you, eevee. I'm only 18 and from a Boston suburb, and I understand or have personally experienced over half of the jokes on the list.

Talking Hillbilly Club, The Old Bus Station and "Borrowing" My Uncle's Playboy Club Key

elfakowhammo brought back memories with his accurate description of the old Park Sq. area.

I remember when my cousin and I would would steal my uncle's Playboy Club Key and walk through the doors of the Playboy Club like we had just entered the gates of heaven.

As we went in, there was the bumper pool table to the right with a Playboy Bunny ready to take on all comers. The bar was to the left and of course there were so many other floors to explore. Great jazz ensembles, witty comics and a plethora of beautiful Bunnies who kept my cousin and I rubber necking all night.

We weren't even old enough to drink, but my uncle's plastic, creditcard- like key was all we needed to drink and roam freely through that pulcritudinous paradise. We were never once asked to show our "fake" IDs.
