Whatever Happened to...?


Baby Jane [I know, I know that one is too easy-for us old movie buffs]

Cartoons and newsreels before the feature movie at a theater

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"

Phone booths

Outdoor movies

Breaking with a hammer and eating coconuts 

My Space

Cell phones

Marbles

Kodak cameras

Doctors making house calls 

Baseball cards in bubble gum package

AstroTurf

Collecting coins

Roller Derby 

Jai alai [in Las Vegas]

Vinyl records

8-track tapes

Betamax

VHS

Traffic cops

Occupy Wall Street

The tea party

Sarah Palin

Kellyanne Conway

Jesse Jackson [thank goodness hasn't shown up in a while] 

"Tastes great, less filling"

"Hey kid, catch" [mean Joe Greene's jersey]

An inside the park home run [I used to think no hitters occurred less frequently]

Stealing home - or even an attempt to steal home [the one thing I have never seen in person at the ballpark]

Cuckoo clocks

"You the man"  "No, you the man"


Moving the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

Real hot meals on airplanes


Jukeboxes

The nurse in elementary school "painting" your throat when it's sore

The milk man

Dry ice being delivered to your house

Friday night fights of the week - by Gillette [boxing]

Black Jack gum

Teaberry gum

All day suckers [lollipops] 

Baseball double headers [real ones-two for the price of one, not these day night deals]

Chocolate phosphates 

Drugstore diners [in the back of the store where you could get the best hamburgers]

Sightings of UFO's 

and last but not least, whatever happened to: 
"Whatever happened to" lists?



With the events of today [April 19, 2017] we may add to the list in a couple of years - Whatever happened to Bill O'Reilly?
