    Curmudgeon and quim.

    Last time I heard ‘Quim’ was in 1974 while sitting around the pool at the Sunset Marquis Hotel off Alta Loma talking to Maria Muldaur…

    What’s boggling my mind its a great number of these words I still use...:)
    However am told regularly that “Groovy” is outdated. Man, is also not outdated.
    I miss the 70s....:thumb:

    I know! As I recall nobody ever taught me how it worked. It seemed intuitive to me.
    But with dumbed down schooling the last forty years those lads were missing two generations of knowledge!

    "Hello, Operator, can you connect me with.....?"

    Party line (not the political thing).

    Long distance.

    Collect call.

    f-stop.

    Far-out, man....

    House-call

    Butter churn

    Hitching post

    Responsibility

    Typewriter

    My 2003 Kawasaki Concours has FOUR carbs and two sets of points.

    30 years of small aircraft mechanical-ing gave me waaay too much insight into magnetos.

    My 1965 Sunbeam Alpine MK IV had two Weber side-draft carbs AND an auxiliary hand-crank.
