speaking of soda fountains - how about those paper cones they put into a holder to serve drinks (like cokes, cherry cokes, chocolate cokes - yum) They held probably 8 or 12 ounces.

Sky King and soda fountains (where they made burgers, ice cream floats, etc). But you didn't gain weight from it because you were outside playing from daylight to dark!

gas was 29 cents a gallon, bread was 3 loaves for $1, candy bars and postage stamps were a nickel each, the beetles were a new music group, dancing the pony, wolfman Jack on the radio and our black and white tv.

Moderation is the key. avoid excess.

29 cent gas; odd and even rationing days and when you left home in the a.m. stayed out all day to play and no one was worried you would "disappear" or something bad would happen to you.



"NOTHING changes if nothing changes" Remember, while looking forward to reaching your destination you need to enjoy the journey.

With God, all things are possible.

when there were no pop top cans; you had to open them with a can opener.

Then when they came out with pop tops, they didn't remain attached. Some people would put the pieces into the can instead of throwing them away. There were a number of medical emergencies as a result and the pop tops were redesigned.
