    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!
