  Also, I remember babysitting fee was 50c per hour.

Cokes for a nickel--- Ice cream cones for a nickel

But I didn't take money at all for babysitting. We did "favors" for neighbors.
--- And we were poor kids----never had a nickel for treats---
Dad bought the largest box of corn flakes for 24c-------

It is fun to look back on those days. . . Thanks, Sunshine!
