I just googled it. This chart shows .34. But there were frequent wars between stations.

Ok,,, I was in elementary school, 1-6th grade back then,,,(early 60's) I poked a kid in the hand with my just sharpened pencile to show him how sharp it was... I was going to get my spankin,, with the LARGE wooden paddle with holes it it... I stuffed wadded up paper in my back pockets... Didn't work....... Needless to say I never did either of those things again....

When I was a teenager cokes were a nickle, milkshakes were 20 cents, and the movie theater was 15 cents.

21 for me, and I'm 'only' 56. ;-)
And yes, Mom had that big glass bottle (Pepsi in this case) with the water sprinkler top for ironing. She still uses the ironing board from back in those days. It's older than I am, and still going strong - not a bit of plastic in it.
She still has the old Brownie camera she got in her high school days - I used it in my high school days. Finding batteries, flash bulbs and even film for it is very difficult.

My Dad would give me $.25 and get me to walk to the grocery store to get him a pack of Players non filter cigarettes. They came from a vending machine that stood on the sidewalk outside the store. I think I was 7 or 8. When the price went up he got one of those roll your own devices that made foot long smokes and I got to use the razor blade to cut them to length.
I remember him being upset because it cost $5 to fill the car at the Gulf station.
It's amazing we're not all psychopathic criminals with all the leather and wood flying around grade school back then.

Some of those vintage John Deers are still in use Monkey.. Ive seen em myself, Never drove one but I've hand cranked some other makes that did not have electric start.. (We called it an Armstrong Starter...... If your arm was strong...)

And my dad worked for a while as a well tender (Oil well) the motor was an old single cylinder thing that you started just like that John Deer. Sadly the well was NOT on our property.

Michael Jackson

Some time ago I was watching a documentry on The Jackson Five. My son was about 12 at the time, he came in the room and said who was the kid singing, I replied thats Michael Jackson. He said thats not Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson isn't black.

I forgot the:
Foler Brush Man
Watkins man, Mom always sent us downstairs until he left. I wonder now a days.
Gas was .29 cents a Gal with Full Service.
Cigs were .27 cents @ the Clark Station and they gave out little orange balls to put on your Radio Antenna.
I am living in the same house that they brought me home too, 58 years ago

I didn't know I'm not suppose to use colored letters in the Forums I don't even know how it happened " Another one"

My Mom sold Rawleigh and NcNess products out of her car. We had a pickup truck for farm work (1970 F-250) . A good car for going to church on Sunday (74 Caprice Classic). And, my mom drove a old rusted out piece of junk (64 Chevy Biscayne) .

I once overheard my son and his friend . They were surprised to learn that Paul McCartney was in another band before Wings.

I got everything except the Blackjack gum. Never heard of that. My mother has passed now, but the coke bottle with the spritzer on the end for ironing really brought back memories of her.
