Ben Franklin...a five and dime store where you could really buy something for five or ten cents. The one in Grove City had the best creaky wooden floors and those wooden bins with merchandise separated with little glass dividers. You could buy a Barbie-like doll in a swervy see-through plastic case for ninety-nine cents. That was my go-to birthday party present!

This is what we did before texting :) I miss hand written notes sometimes! #oldschool
Before Text Messages. I still have all of mine from high school. @Kim Young...remember the silly ways we would write letters to each other?
OLD SCHOOL!! Omg yes. I only just recently got rid of all of mine that I saved from middle school up through high school. So much cooler than texting!
Before Text Messages oh high school and middle school memories...code words and everything!
Before Text Messages. I still have a ton of notes from high school! Will my kids still have those texts when they are my age?
I hope people never stop writing letters. Make sure you teach your kids that hand written notes are the best!!
I remember this in middle school...

The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary. My favorite book and a TV film I loved
Ralph is not like the other mice at the Mountain View Inn. He is always looking for adventure. So when a young guest named Keith arrives with a shiny miniature motorcycle, it's Ralph's lucky day. Right away, Ralph knows that the motorcycle is special—made to be ridden by an adventurous mouse. And once a mouse can ride a motorcycle . . . almost anything can happen! (Ages 8-12)
25 good kid book recommendations - The Mouse and the Motorcycle series was a favorite!
Mister Rogers- “When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”

Blake's favorite TV show in the mid 1980's was Mr. Rogers Neighborhood
Is it weird to pin Mr. Rogers under "Old School Toys"??
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood..
