    "Gardol" (Colgate commercial from the 50s. I still use it.!)

    "The relentless pursuit of perfection." (Lexus 1990s.....made me buy my first one in 1993 and my second one in 1997.

    SO glad I did that because after my divorce in 2000, I know I will never be able to buy another car. That 1997 Lexus is now 18 years old and is still serving me well, though it has some not so minor blemishes, just like me.)

    remember the "Un Cola Nuts" for 7-UP
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Burma Shave signs. The last one I saw, just a few years back:
    If you drive
    When caution ceases
    You are apt
    To rest in pieces.

    I had heard they were going to put up another saying on that road; they had a contest and there was a winner, but there still are no signs. I'm waiting.

    Tide makes your washer clean like it's 10 feet tall.
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    Okay - how about: "Forty isn't fatal."

    In Seattle when I was growing up we had a car dealer called Ralph Williams -
    Hi friends! Ralph Williams from Ralph Williams Chrysler Plymouth, 132nd and Aurora Avenue North, in the City of Seattle.

    There was also a car dealer named Disk Balsh - he used to smash cars with a sledge hammer then laugh like a wild person.

    By golly, I think you're right! I'd forgotten the dog's name. Wonder who actually did the voice? Sometimes I sing that song when we have chocolate here...crazy lady...but it lightens the spirit.

    These sure bring back memories.

    The "zoom, zoom" whispered at the end of the Mazda adds is back!

    AND I just couldn't watch the baby boy in the crib advertising E-trade (I think) singing..."Nobody knows the trouble I've seen..." Deep bass voice...hilarious!

    Hanes makes you feel good all under and Gentlemen prefer Hanes. I heard these a lot in school because my last name was Haines. Remember - and she'll tell two friends, and she'll tell two friends..... and the screen kept filling up with women's faces? I think it was for hair color. We use that line a lot in Sunday School. Just think how quickly God's word could spread but we will tell people about our hair color.lol Our daughter didn't understand what they were saying when she was little and would say Hucky Hucky Sick sack instead of Heft Hefty Cinch Sack. She's 30 and we still tease her about that.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    A local hardware store had a Big Clarence Sale. This tall good looking guy was sitting on his haunches and correcting us. He said, "It's not Clearance, it's Clarence."

    In SoCal we all heard Go See Cal, Go See Cal, Go See Cal - Cal Worthington, a car dealer, and his dog Spot which was a tiger. I think he had other animals there too. His grandson does the commercials now but he isn't as charming as Cal was.

    And my favorite commercial "bet you can't eat just one". I think that was Lays Potato Chips. I can't eat just one.

    How about "See the USA in your Chevrolet"?

    You can always tell a Halo Girl by the wonderful shine of her hair (shampoo ad)

    Jimmy Nelson was the voice and puppeteer for Farfel. He retired to Ft Myers/Cape Coral area of Fl and they would appear every so often in a commercial for a savings and loan bank there

    Funny! I grew up in Vancouver, and also remember "Beep! Beep! Jarvis Jeep!
    I also remember that obnoxious late night commercial Tom Peterson had for his furnature store, "Wake up! Wake up!" Where he is pretending to knock on your TV screen.
