The kind of Stride Rite shoes I wore as a toddler. 1950's White Leather Lace-Up Baby Walking shoes. Drs said it was IMPORTANT that the First Shoes Were GOOD Shoes, so the Ankles would be Strong, and Stride Rite Supported the ankles, it Applies to this day also, You Should Always put Your toddler in Sturdy, High Top Shoes, or their ankles will be weak.

Drive-In Reminiscing I saw this picture going around Facebook - does anyone remember these? Well, as a child of the 60’s and 70’s, I sure do!! In fact, I’m lucky to live near a place where these are still being used – the Drive-In movie theater. The antique looking speakers are still in position at one of the few drive-in theaters we have left in Minnesota.

Bucket List, Drive, Movie Theater, Movie Theatre, Drive In
It's time to get in your car and go to a movie ... literally. If you've never been to one, make the iconic drive-in movie one of the things on your bucket list. Love it or hate it, you'll relish the experience ...
Drive-In Movie Theaters - essentially a large outdoor screen where a film is projected. People park their vehicles and hang a speaker from the inside of their window, and watch. 50 cents a car. Mom would pop corn and make Koolaid and sometimes hot-dogs wrapped in slices of bread, and it was fun.
Drive-in movie theater - oh the memories! Fortunately, there's still one near where we live!

Growing up in the 60s to 70s you were "far out" if you owned a banana seat bike. Mine wasn't a Schwinn, it was a teal blue metal flake Huffy Stingray girl's bike with tassles on the handle bars. I don't remember if it had a sissy bar on the back. I didn't have hand brakes, just foot brakes. It had a white basket in front with flowers on it and flowers on the seat. It was groovy!
