41. I hear you.
Pre super market (aka the A&P) how did we manage to survive? The grocer marked his ledger up for what was purchased and the folks paid on Saturday mornings before the banks closed. That's how old I am.

I think it's the lack of sun light and chores. You couldn't play with your friends unless your chores were done. Then you spent the day light hours doing stuff.

Stores were closed on Sundays. You rode the bus if you had to get somewhere that was too far to walk.

Recycling was getting a used bike on your birthday. Hand me downs were this year's nouveau fashions.

You can lead a horse to water...
