I think if you filled a booklet with stamps you could get $2.

Anybody else?

I don't remember getting money but there was Green Stamp stores in most large towns. We got lawn chairs, small appliances and lots more. You would get one stamp for every dime you spent. Later they came out with a larger stamp which was given for each dollar spent. I still have a book of stamps in my collection.

My first wife worked in an S&H Greenstamp store, in Ft. Lauderdale, from 1967-1970, while in highschool.....i remember them as a small store, with some of everything....very popular....i think most got the stamps from shopping at Winn Dixie or Kwik Chek.....

When I was a kid I remember when it snowed in Maine and how my friends and I would grab our sleds and walk a country mile where there was the perfect place to go sledding at. We would literally spend all day sliding down the hill and walking back up to do it again. we would be covered from head to toe in snow and we looked like little snowmen walking across the field that was sparkling from the reflection of the sun which ironically made you feel warm even though you were freezing cold. By the time we got home I t was all we could do to stay awake long enough to eat supper. And when we went to bed we couldn't wait to do it all over again the next day.

After Church every other Sunday, we would take a long drive to the mountains and then to my grandmothers house nearby.

When I was a kid..it was a great time. Maybe not all of the time, but most of the time. I had no clue about what it would be like to be an adult someday. Life was so simple in those days. Not much of a care in the world and the world was a different place then. I sometimes wish I could go back to it all again, but then I would never have the opportunity of knowing the joys of being an adult and having a husband and family. Just the same, I can never forget the joys of being a child. If it could only be that way for the rest of the children in this world. I remind myself of that everyday. There's always someone somewhere in this world who has had a far worse childhood then I could ever have had.

talk about true freedom! Nothing felt as good as getting on your bike and riding it around the neighborhood. Isn't it ironic how it made us feel so grown up and yet now we give anything to have that feeling of being a kid once again...even if only for a moment.

Hi 60s Chic, I agree with you 100%...it was a simple time...many times, we made up our own games. There was always something to do, and we never needed batteries. I wish the kids of today, were as happy now, as we were then.
I must say though, I do like having a husband and the thrill of being a mother. Time moves on...:)

When I was a kid having a dollar in my pocket made me feel rich, now kids don't even know what 1 is.
