Etch-a-sketch! Why, it was the precursor to the personal computer we know and love today! ;) (j/k!)

Hope you're having a beautiful day, Gary-- happy Friday!

It's going quite well thank you! And of course, you are correct! The fact that 1960 was 42 years ago just makes me feel old. I was only 10 years old then!

The first thing I thought of was silly putty. How silly of me. lol

Well, I must confess, when they asked the question on the morning station I listen to, I thought of the same thing! Silly putty must have been introduced at somewhere around that same time frame.

Hey Gary, just got back from our camping trip and was scanning my friends page and ran into your triva question. With my trvia brain I wouldn't have gotten it.....LOL. I think Silly Puttty came around 67 or 68 though. I guess that's pretty much the same time frame...LOL

Yeah, it's back there in the prehistoric era! :-) But, I know silly putty had to have been around earlier than 67/68 because I can remember my parents getting me some and we all played with it. I was 17 in 67, and I know I was much younger when I first saw silly putty!

You're probably right, at my age I'm beginning to suffer from brain fade....LOL

Re: brain fade
I used to have that, but what was it we were talking about? ;-)
