Now that was some year. Remember lining up in the gymnasium of your school to get the little white cup with the sugar cube that had the pink liquid on it? That was how we got our Oral Polio Vaccine here in Minnesota. I had a friend with polio, she already had braces on her legs. She still has braces on her legs.
Gas was 29 cents a gallon and a loaf of bread cost 22 cents. If you could plunk down $3,200 you could buy a car. A first class stamp was 5 cents and we used zip codes for the first time. We watched Bonanza on TV on Sunday nights. A different night we watched Combat! with my Dad.
