Kids played until the street lights came on, then you went home.
Shoes were worn for school and Sunday School. We went barefoot in the summer.
There were 3 channels on the television and if you were lucky, you had COLOR! There were no remote controls to change the channel. That's what kids were good for!
Moms stayed home and dads worked.
We weren't overweight and we were very creative.
We said, yes mam and yes sir. Kids were to be seen, not heard when visiting other people's home.
We actually had penny candy and a dime bought 10 pieces of candy :)
Movies, a bag of popcorn and a coke costs .50 (Sat. Matinee)
Our favorite games as a girl was, Jacks, Pick Up Sticks, Marbles and Jump Rope, triple Jump Rope if you were really good!
Roller skates had a key that was worn around the neck, used to adjust the skates when necessary.
Winter months were filled with snow men and hot chocolate. Burl Ives narrated Rudolph the Red nose Reindeer. And Frosty The Snowman was everyone's favorite!
Christmas was simple. Girls received Paper Dolls, or Dolls and boys received Hot wheels and balls. If lucky, they received a Tonka Truck and army men.
I miss the good old days when life was simple.
What are some of the things you miss as a child?
