Slam Bang Theater and Iggy Twerp.

Small pox vaccinations.
The first day of school the nurse would check each child for a scar on the arm.
If you didn't have one you couldn't go back to school.

I had to get vaccinated twice, the first one didn't leave a scar, just a slight blemish and discoloration.
Almost had to get a third.:-/

Polio vaccine on a sugar cube.
March of Dimes really was a march for dimes.
Mom's going door to door with a kid in a wheelchair collecting dimes.
My mother didn't have a dime, so she gave the lady and child some Kool-Aid and saltine crackers.
She wouldn't let them in the house out of fear;
because little sister was a newborn.
I was @ 4 years old then.
We sat on the porch.
I remember the little boy let me touch his braces and how withered and skinny his legs were.

Sabin on Sunday (1960)- Across the nation, families lined up at local hospitals and schools to receive (free) the first oral polio vaccine.

OMG, another Mr. Rogers conversation. Yikes. I know some of you know this, I think David and I had talked about it in the neighborhood thread, but I was so terrified of Mr. Rogers show. It wasn't so much him, all though he's a fruit, it was that creepy a$$ puppet, the one with the big red nose and cheeks. I don't mean mildly afraid, I mean run out of the room screaming afraid, lol. Had nightmares about that stupid puppet, I think my brother was teasing me and making it worse, because I see it now and it was ridiculous to be that scared of it.
Did you hear that he supposedly hated children, he didn't like to interact with them or be touched by them. This is just hear-say, so I might be wrong but was told that.
He was a major advocate in getting free educational public television for children (PBS).

I made my first bike with parts I found throughout the neighborhood.I had spare parts everywhere.I used to fix bikes for free. I also remember collecting bottles (2 cents) so I could go to the movies....
There was just so much 'adventure' out there.
I even used to collect bugs....spiders and caterpillars( all different colors)....you name it.

I feel sorry for kids nowadays.
We spent so much time with constructive things.

Do you remember Bargain Town?

Milk at school was 3 cents..
Milk was five cents at my elementary school duringthose first few years. A kid was elected "milk monitor" and collected the nickles and brought back the milk cartons on a brown or beige fiberglass tray.

They were free if you used your belt and Snached the rod, until they upgraded those machines
