I too fall into the getting older camp. I remember almost all of the pictured items. I also played far away with coke bottles.

Stan, I guess I was in the wrong crowd. It was $1.00 a bottle at the parts counter to pull one out of the empty rack and farthest away won the pot. We even had a map on the wall with a string around a push pin to determine which one was farthest. And the biggest joy was to pull the Hawaii bottle and keep quiet and wait to be last to reveal your bottle location, then watch the guys face fall who had pulled Alaska......

We also gambled on what color you would get out of the gumball machine.... We were bad people.LOL

Remember almost all of that stuff. I'm getting old too... The bottles that had deposits reminded me of a game my dad and I used to play. The game was called "Far Away"  In case you don't know what that is; the smaller Coca-Cola bottles had the name of a city on the bottom of the bottle. Whoever had the bottle with the city that was the farthest away won the game. The other person had to buy the next cokes as we called them.

Re: NanoVNA Discussion on ZOOM at 6PM Local Time

 

Mike: Glad that you and others (including me) got something out of that NanoVNA "school".  Now I just have to got out and buy one....

That club is a good one, and that's why I'm still a member after over nine years away from that area.
