From the Church Mouse
Friday I discussed my future, These were in my past, well maybe not Ricky Nelson
A very young Ricky Nelson.
Grandma’s old, square-faced watch.
A brown paper bag which we took for lunch.
A pair of bronzed, baby shoes with a plaque.
A library book, a card out of a library book signed and dated by how many people took it out.
Who can forget Smith Brothers Black cough drops?
Plastic pants to fit over d.iapers for babies
Stockings, that’s right two separate stockings held up with garters with seams right down the back and you had to make sure that they were straight.
A young person leaning against a blackboard after having written “I will not be late for class” about 100 times.
A tray hanging off the window of a car at a drive-up with soda and hamburger.
A hood with a big hose that women wore over their head as a hair dryer.
A rotary phone.
Merthiolate – First Aid for cuts and scrapes.
A mimeograph machine - boy do I remember running those holy rollers.
A wringer washer machine.
An old gasoline pump.
For the women, spoolies in the hair.
Those are just a few things from our past that 55 and younger would not remember. She shared these to go down memory lane and have a few laughs. Hope that you enjoyed using your own “visual” for this time.
