Here's something I DON'T miss: smoking "sections" on airplanes.
As a kid I sat with my dad in a non-smoking section one row behind a smoking one. LULZ!

I am originally from EB and remember all those as lived in Windsor Park behind the McDonald's on Race Track Rd and 18 ....Back in the day Late 60's early 70's there was a bar on Ryders Ln & Salt Meadow Rd that used to give us "under aged" HS FB & BB players drinks in a plastic container that we would take to party's or back to the HS to drink. Also there was a turkey farm when I was growing up were Brunswick Square Mall was built and on the other side of 18 was an open field were all the kids in the "hood " would play FB BB after rounding up the kids..........
