@beach-mom  I never heard that. 


Mine belonged to me and my best friend.   We did everything at her house, mostly in the garage.


We threw ours in the trash a few times. We kept finding in the garage again. Until finally it was gone.

@tarytoo Thank you so much for posting that lovely picture (likely on old post card).
What a great addition to this thread.👍

@proudlyfromNJ I didn't say nobody died from those things! Plenty of people did. My point was we (who are reading this thread) obviously survived those things.

@beach-mom  I never heard that one either.  I think the concern was that you were putting out an invitation with the board.  With the other things you yourself were the only active thing in control.

When our oldest was growing up in the seventies we had big halloween parties. We did apple bobbing for years. Then one year there were a lot of kids with colds so we bought apples with stems and tied them with long  strings and hung from the ceiling of the patio. That was fun.
