The little Murdo Girl needed a day off, so I’ve been doing a bit of looking back myself. Fun memories…
YUP! DRAGGING MAIN…made a u-turn at the end of Main Street and circled out around the Brunskill’s, back to the Highway, and back to Main St. The ones without a car or gas nursed a coke at Mack’s Cafe. Usually, everyone ended up there.
MOO MOOS. ..MOM HAD A COUPLE OF THESE. THEY WERE COMFY I GUESS. I REMEMBER DAD WEARING ONE WHILE HE SMOKED A CIGAR AND COOKED SUNDAY DINNER. MY FAVORITE WAS FRIED PHEASANT, MASHED POTATOES AND GRAVY, AND CORN…FOLLOWED BY STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE. Cousin Valerie joined us every chance she got. Dad dirtied every pot and pan, and dish in the house. Val and I had to clean up the mess, but it was worth it.
Dad came in the living room one morning and I had the Electrolux vacuum on the couch. I used the exhaust end of it to dry my hair, while I sat on the floor and did homework. The next day, he bought me a hairdryer like the one above. He said he’d rather spend $18.00 for a hairdryer than have me use a $400.00 vacuum cleaner.
“Is the phone for me?” We actually had to answer it to find out, and the operator was on the line if it was long distance.
I remember our first black and white TV. The first program we watched was, “As the World Turns.”
