My first bike ~ a Christmas present in 1942. It was a junker my parents had gotten rebuilt and nicely painted for me. It was the War years and the rest of my toys were made of wood.

I lived in New Orleans in our first 3 bedroom house bought for $5500. My first Rawlings baseball glove in 1956! My Dad said, "Take good care of it. It was $10! I'll show you how to oil it good so it will last." He also bought a baby blue 1955 Chevy Bel Air for around $2200! God Bless him!

Milk man coming to deliver milk, he would leave it on our back steps. They were glass bottles with little cardboard tabs on the top.

When "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" was first uttered on our black and white console TV.

When it was the norm for women not to work outside the home.

I remember when ... Girls could not wear pants to school.

... Sanitary belts were used to hold up sanitary pads (I know, TMI), but it wasn't so easy ladies.

... children used their imaginations to play - toys were not needed.

forget about tomorrow - right now is about a good a time as ever to start.
