would think odd. Rotary phones and party lines, milk boxes on the porch, opening the frig and seeing damp clothes rolled in plastic (to be ironed), we had a bread man (Strohman) who came in truck (had bread, rolls,cupcakes), Dad's insurance agent came to the house to get premium payments (in suit and tie) and visited with parents for awhile,we got physicals at the school grades 1-6, my parents had gone to schoool with most of my classmates parents, Drs. made housecalls, I'm sure I was never in a carseat as a youngster. I remember no seatbelts in cars.
I'm sure they are more. I know there have been variations on this theme but it's still interesting.

Having to get up from the couch to change the tv channels or to adjust the volume. Having only a handful of channels to watch. Rushing home to see a favorite show. 📺

Wringer washing machine, the ice man, the coal man, the milk man with milk in glass bottles, a man in a panel truck with everything from fruits and vegetables to house dresses. As we got older I remember the Charles Chip man and the Coca Cola man coming too. We had a phone where the operator came on to connect your calls. The rotary and party line came later.

Having one channel through my whole childhood. When cable finally was available, my folks didn’t go for it till years later.

I forgot about Charles Chips. We had a wringer washer too. As a kid I was told to stay away from it. I did, but only after I tried to "help" and got my thumb caught in the darned thing. BTW I got no sympathy from my grandmother. lol

Having to wait A WHOLE YEAR to see the replay of The Wizard Of OZ shown around Christmas time on our 13 inch back and white RCA TV. We did finally get a color TV....but still had to wait the entire year to see it. No video rentals😄
