I was born in the 60's but while the folks worked I stayed at the grand parents in the UK.

Got used to an outside toilet, wooden seat in the cold and rough toilet paper. They had a wringer and one thing I did there that I've not done since is take a bath in an aluminium (or aluminum) bath tub in the kitchen filled with water heated on the stove.

Thanks for the memory lane trip. I remember a few of those things. Some relatives with farms still had outhouses when I was a kid. A few things I don't or can't do anymore:

-Ask the gas station attendant to "fill 'er up" (A gas station attendant? What's that??)
-Bake a pie. Grandma made the best, from scratch. It's way too much work for me.
-Keep change around to pay the paper
