I remember requesting a Swanson Fried Chicken TV dinner for my Birthday meal, and one for my friend that stayed overnight, and we thought they were so "cool", we sat with TV tray tables, watching tv, it was a "treat"!

I remember our parents rented a freezer locker at the local butcher, they had a key, and we would go downtown to bring home some hamburger or piece of beef, whatever my mother asked for from there. They would run specials on meat, so you could keep it filled up. Every body did that with various grocery stores.

There were some very cruel teachers many years ago who did get away with abusing the students. At a recent school reunion, a classmate remembered that the teacher actually bloodied his nose. One of my high school teachers was just plain MEAN-- Of course, there were very caring ones and devoted ones---but, somehow those meanies are never forgotten...

God grant me the strength to reach my goal.

Yes, Barbzumba, this particular teacher was my first grade teacher, an old woman who was just waiting to retire, I suppose, so she couldn't be fired. She also took me out of the classroom, slammed by head against the wall by the door, because I colored a boy on a picture orange. Back in the 1950's. BUT, in the 1980's, my oldest son had a 2nd grade teacher who put boys into a closet, threw their lunch into it, and locked the door. She also did not believe in holiday's, so the room mothers had to give kids their treats for the various holidays outside in the play ground. They tried to get rid of her, too, but she found lawyers in San Francisco to aid her, so she wouldn't lose tenure.

All outside roller skate had four wheels were metal and had a key to tighten them to your shoes (not sneakers). Full leather boot skates were used indoors at the rink with four wheels also. In the early 50's everyone wore real shoes never saw anyone wear sneakers, unless they were an athlete.
