    I'm 38, and the only one I didn't know was LS/MFT... I guess they really did stop trying to sell tobacco to kids at some point.

    ctreay, I know you are the same age as I am and I do not remember the green pack of Lucky Strikes. Started to smoke in 1950. Cigarettes were 15 cents a pack. No filtered cigarettes at that time. I believe Winton's were the first cigarettes with filters. Old navy buddy Tom

    #13 was for Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper. All three perished in the plane crash.

    Remember 1955?

    If they raise the minimum wage
    to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.



    When I first started driving, who
    would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon.
    Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.


    .
    I read the other day where some
    scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by
    the end of the century. They even have some fellows they
    call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas .


    Did you see where some baseball
    player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball?
    It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than
    the President.




    I never thought I'd see the day
    all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They're even making
    electric typewriters now.



    It's too bad things are so tough
    nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.


    It won't be long before young
    couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.



    I'm afraid the Volkswagen car
    is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.

    The fast food restaurant is
    convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.



    There is no sense going on short
    trips anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.


    No one can afford to be sick
    anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.




    If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.
