Oh, yeah, where's my free toaster for opening up an account? Today we practically have to pay the banks to keep our money!

Sears and Roebuck catalogs; pay phones; cars without seat belts, air conditioners, and power anything

Oh yeah, saving accounts just for kids....they could open one up for a buck. I remember my first savings accounts, I was about 9 and felt so grown up!

I had a savings account as a kid, too. Do they even let kids have ones now? I don't think so...

Anybody remember dairy trucks delivering milk to people's houses?

I remember leather upholstery in the farmer's car - and towing milk churns which made a clanging sound. My mum was working on a farm which had working horses. Sometimes when I was a baby my dad put me on top of the horses to keep me safe and out of the way. Everything in the barn smelled of hay or grain, or manure . On weekends we went to watch the cattle auction. As a city girl I wasn't too keen on milk drunk warm from the cow, but there was a comfortable, slow feel to everything at that time.


Later the farmer got sick and things became nasty.

PS I don't think that I was safe at all on those big plough horses. Lots of photos of me at 2-3 yrs old with my legs stuck out horizontally each side along the back of the enormous horse and an uncertain half-smile on my face. Photos of me put on top of walls at the same age.... humph.

My dad liked Laugh-In and Batman. Those were the only TV shows he would watch. Holy Sock It To Me, Batman. The rest of us watched everything
