When Kool-Aid was the only drink for kids, other than milk and sodas.



When there were two types of sneakers for girls and boys (Keds & PF Flyers), and the only time you wore them at school, was for "gym."



When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.



When nobody owned a purebred dog.



When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.



When your mom wore nylons that came in two pieces.



When all of your male teachers wore neckties and female teachers had their hair done, everyday.



When you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, for free, every time. And, you didn't pay for air. And, you got trading stamps to boot!



When laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box.



When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him, or use him to carry groceries, and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it.



When it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents.



When they threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed...and did!



When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited a misbehaving student at home?
