When I watched my mother exercise on a machine that belted around her waist and jiggled her. Then she sat on a machine like a wooden cylinder that rolled her butt and thighs.

when milk was delivered to my house. The milkman came in freely, no matter what the family was doing. He placed the milk (in a box at that time) in the refrigerator.

I still have my key, complete with string so I could wear it around my neck. And you had to have shoes like oxfords, so that the clamps on the roller skate had something to hold on to. The skates would fall off, otherwise. We skated all over town, not thinking about safety then.

Clamp roller skates. A strap buckled around your ankle and you tightened the clamps around your shoe with a key that you always wore around your neck.

Yes, I just looked up Bill Cullen, he had polio when he was 18 months old, and when he was older, he was in a car accident, so he never could walk well after all of that. They did hide it well, I remember reading about that in an old TV Guide, many people that worked in TV didn't even know that about him, because he was seated or standing near where he would sit down.

Remember "Beat The Clock", "Name That Tune", "Concentration", used to watch all of those when as a kid we had to be home because of sickness, and they didn't want you in school with a cold. Daytime tv was sure different then. I wasn't old enough for Soap Opera's yet.

The Price is Right with Bill Cullen. Bill had a limp due to polio or an accident. The TV camera avoided
showing it.

That's right. Theses old fashioned type of children's shows were popular back then. Claymation cartoons also took so long to film. Now there are severa channels just for kids.

Yes, they do still sell Charming t tissue. I buy it sometimes.

I remember the show Perfect Strangers with Bronson Ponchot and Mark Lin Baker.

One of their girlfriends was played by Melanie Wilson who is the daughter of Dick Wilson who played Mr. Whippel in the Charmin commercials.

Remember the guy in the grocery store who wouldn't let you "squeeze the Charmin"? I don't remember his name, too lazy to look it up, because I have to go somewhere, but I still see his face. I don't even know if they still sell "Charmin" bath tissue, or, as we normal people call it, toilet paper.
