Took pictures just on Vacation or at Christmas and at an occasional family reunion

I remember silver money,  3 cent chocolate bars and 12 cent comic books.

The last silver dime and quarter was 1964, half dollars were different.

I remember using silver money as cash.  1960 I received 25 cents for allowance.  I'd buy a 12 DC Comic and a pound of green grapes and have a wonderful afternoon.  I just looked up the value of a silver quarter,  any old silver quarter and they are selling or being offered at $5.50.  I could still pretty much get the grapes today but perhaps not the comic.

We didn't have air conditioning so we had a large fan in the window that was reversible. Then window shakers came out that needed a 220 line.

At 10:30 "do you know where your kids are at" would come on the TV.

Was a long time before I found out that the Wizard of Oz had color.

I remember, how at 10 years old, I was the oldest of my cousins to get my first .22 rifle for Christmas. Most of my cousins got theirs at 8 or 9 but they all lived in the country and we lived in the city. Gas at 19 cents a gallon in KC when I was little too. Penny bubble gum and buying a few pieces at a time, and them another few pieces, and then another, to not have to pay tax and lose any!! Lol!!!
