Fill ‘er up. remember gas station attendants? Funny too because it only caost a little over a quarter a gallon then, now it is 16 to 20 times more a gallon and we get to do it. Go figure.
Fill ‘er up. remember gas station attendants? Yes, I'm fortunate to live in NJ, where we still have them!! But, back then, they did the windows, checked the oil and they did all the windows while filling up. Service was king!!
Fill ‘er up. remember gas station attendants? I think we should bring them back if they look like this...

College Dorm, Cell Phone, Vintage Phone, Telephone Booth, Phonebooth
Phone Booths. You could actually sit down, close the door, and, for only a dime, make a phone call in complete privacy. They were pretty cool. Cell phones changed everything.
Phone Booths - There was just "something" about a telephone booth. You could shut the door, have a seat and make a phone call in peace, comfort and privacy. And you could actually hear the other person on the other end of the line perfectly, and you didn't have to shout into it to be heard over the street noise.
Row of Phone Booths; in the 70's I was a telephone operator and we always knew that when a phone with the first number of the four 555-9000 started with a nine, it was a payphone. We had a button we could push to return the callers quarter back to them.
Row of Phone Booths. We still have a few phone booths in the hallway at school. The phone is gone and we store the vacuum there--although once I saw a student sitting there using their cell phone. ironic.
Row of Phone Booths: Someone showed me what a small slit in the cord and a little spit could do for a free phone call.

1969 Moon Landing...will always remember that night! A friend and I were camping out in my back yard, and we came in to watch it. One of a handful of things over the years that I remember exactly what I was doing when it happened!
This is what I was doing on July 20, 1969. I was several years older than this little girl and it looked better in color. I remember feeling lucky to be alive and old enough to remember the first moon landing. On my birthday. what a present that was...
I photographed the TV screen and mailed a copy to a friend in another country. I'd love to see that photo again because it was my own snapshot of the event. My father was an engineer in the space program so we were quite on track for the whole thing. - - - This is what I was doing on July 20, 1969.

Don't know how many kids accidentally walked under the upraised end of a see-saw and got whacked on the head. Guess that's why they outlawed them while I was still in elementary school!
Oh yeah...standing and swinging. Felt like real daredevils :-) Not that I ever did that....

Things Remembered, Cloth Diapers, Childhood Memories, Safety Pins, Baby Boomer, 1960
*safety pins* not just 1950's, I used them 1978-1987 with cloth diapers on my kids. Disposable diapers didn't come on the market until the late 70's.
*safety pins* ~ actually they are "Diaper Pins" ~ that's right, we used to use "cloth" diapers and pin them pin with these cute diaper pins that locked. I'd usually have to run them through my hair or a bar of soap so they would glide more smoothly. Disposable diapers were for car trips, vacations or the well-to-do. The "very" rich used a diaper service and a Nanny did the pinning.
