The Good Old Days

by Denise J Tidwell

Tell me honest
Tell Me true

Do you remember the good old days?

When fun was clean and pure.

When hamburgers were a nickel? And a beer was a quarter? Better have ID!
Don't forget Cokes for a dime.

Even better than that. There was the radio NO TV for a fire side chat. You had to be listening to the president. What more could you ask for.

How about haircuts for penny?
But mom really did them for free.

Drive-in movies , sock hops and going steady. What a fuzzy feeling blast from the past.

The Circus ' is coming to town with funny clowns and elephants in tow
Hey momma and daddy I gotta go. Gimme, gimme makes my heart just zing.
T-birds, Ford ModelT, Rolls Royce to name a few of the rides back then

Everybody was afraid of the draft! Nobody wanted to go to war. But if you were (18)eighteen you probably were going. Vietnam lock sock and barrel. Rather you liked it or not.

I know there's a lot more. But I'm through. So enjoy my few as you enjoy your trip into the past.
