My kids Now in late 30s and 40) know all of the things i grew up with because I showed stuff I still had or showed pictures and all. Same with my grandkids. People laugh and say kids today wont know how to use rotary phones, typewriters, viny records, etc. Not true my grankids know all of that because I have a rotary phone yet (in addition to cordless phones) I have a type writer, we play vinyl records, 8 tracks, cds etc. because we have a complete stereo system. lol. Also they know kitchen items because I have some old dependable ones that were my moms. I dont think theres anything they dont know about. Well if I dont have it I showed them pictures of it. The thing that I got mad about is, my 2 younger grandkids didnt know cursive writing. (the oldest did) So I taught them how to write cursive when I used to babysit them lol.

A man would go around with a pony and a hat, vest, and take pictures of us on the pony. Bother me now about the hat. And it work out well we had a neighbor with a fence in the front yard.I am the only kid from us 3 that had my picture taken on the pony.

I remember wanting white boots, over the shoe boots they had a little button on the side with an alastic cord that was pulled around the button, I told my Mom they were just like the boots Opie Taylor on the "Andy Griffin Show " funny how things play tricks on your mind I was watching long after I was an Adult and realized he was barefoot running along with his Father to go fishing. He wasn't wearing boots as I thought. But I did get those boots.

My mother would hang clothes on the outside clothes lines and when it was too cold, they became like ice sticks. She would put them on the warm radiators in the house to thaw out.
I had lots of Little Golden Books which I kept in a box under my bed so no one would steal them :-)
