    I remember getting the polio shots at school.
    I don't remember a time without a black and white TV.
    My grandmothers both had freezers.
    I do remeber the 5&10 cents stores, but I remember paying more like a quarter for things.
    I'm 57, and while some of the things are off a bit, depending on where you were in the country, dates are different in different areas for when things were normally done or had.
    thanks for memory walk! :)

    I miss some of those days. When I was learning to drive a car the gas was 3 gal. for a dollar. So I better pay attention, because that was a lot of money. I didn`t miss chocking grain. Going out to the bathroom, lugging water to the house with a pail. OR having to listen to Gabriel Heater tell us how a war was on out back door, and then being told to go to bed. What for I couldn`t sleep. I`m 72.

    I'm 55 and remember some of those things too. I hated the margarine with the yellow color packet. I also remember getting a color TV but only a few shows were in color. Back then we only had 2 channels to watch.

    I'm 70. I can remember when MY kids could play safely in the front yard of my house and the neighbors' and no one worried they would be snatched. I can remember when my kids could ride a city bus to school through an ethnic mixed part of town to school without incident and I remember when my oldest child came home and said a student was shot in the school cafeteria. Change happened to all of us.
