I remember the milkman and in our neighborhood, we also had the breadman and the egg woman. My favorite, of course, was the ice cream man - not the guy with the noisy truck who sold novelty items. This was a fellow who can to the house every Saturday and told you what flavors of half-gallon ice cream he had in his truck that week and my Mum would buy 2 half-gallons every week.

..... You actually know what happened to Randolph Scott. (And Gene and Hoppy and Roy) You watched Jack Parr and Steve Allen live. You helped dig the hole for the last outhouse at your Grandma's place and you know what a chamber pot and a "coal oil" lamp are. You might be way over fifty if you remember that kinda stuff. Coke machines dispensed 6 or 7-ounce bottles for a nickel and a twenty cent pack of cigarettes took a quarter for the machine to work and it couldn't give change, but there was a nickel between the inner pack and the outer plastic wrapper for your change.
