Wow! That's incredible that the doctor didn't know what a smallpox vaccination scar was. I mean, didn't they teach anything about smallpox in medical school?

Chippee - my doctor asked me if my smallpox scar was a sun spot that I should be watching. Obviously, he is a bit younger than me.

The only time I could have a Dr Pepper as a child was when the family went on vacation once a year to the Carolina's. This product was not available in Florida. It was a treat then.

No cable television. We had reception for channels 2, 4, 6, 10, 11 and 12. We had a little black box on top of the TV that was connected to a rotating antenna on the roof. And you actually had to get off your butt to turn on/off and change channels on the TV.
