Reading Janet552's comment I recall the local milkman used a horse to pull the milk van. The horse would knew where to stop as the milkman dropped off the milk to each house. Thanks. I hadn't thought of this for years! 1123 days ago
We couldn't wait for it to snow so we could go sledding down the street by our house, playing baseball in the street, party line on the phone, talking on the CB, black & white TV, watching American Band Stand, playing 45 records, collecting pop bottles to get in the movie for free, also going to the drive in. Great memories with the neighborhood kids and my siblings!
PS Using the outhouse at our country church and at great grandma's house.
Living in CT as a young child and building snow forts in the winter that would last for weeks!!
Father in Navy, and he would do the monthly grocery shopping at the commissary. He'd buy milk in paper half gallons, 6 to a box. We had a freezer in the garage that we'd keep the milk in. Have to remember to take a carton out before going to bed, AND because the milk solids would freeze at a different temp than the liquids, the milk would separate. Easy solution, you shake the carton before you pour the milk! I STILL shake my milk today!!
Living in VA, being in 5th-6th grade and in the summers playing shadow tag and flashlight war until 9 or 10 at night. All of our parents knew each other and knew where we were and that we were doing what we said we were doing - playing!! 1123 days ago
Listening to records on my friend's portable turntable that closed up like a little suitcase. And putting the little plastic thing in the center hole of my 45s so that they fit on the turntable.
