Back In The Day

This is an expression that I always associate with Stan <1011 (for some reason :???: ), and conjures up halcion days of the great Victorian engineers. I can picture it now, Bazalgette is re-working London's sewers, IKB is building ships and railways, Telford has bridged anything worth spanning and the young Stan is building a Lego flow bench in his nursery.

As the phrase seems to have entered common parlance, when was "back in the day"?

Back in the day I didn't have fake teeth, fake ears, fake eyes, a fake knee, a heart full of 8 stainless coils, and everything worked. "Golden Years" my bony butt. :cry:
