    • Smart voter

      I remember gas prices at .35 cents a gallon. A service attendant would not only pump the gas, but wash your windshield, check the air in your tires, check oil and water and sometimes they had special gifts like dishes or drinking glasses and other little goodies to thank their customers. My husbands paycheck was $95.00 a week, I still have one of his pay stubs! Going out to dinner meant going to Mel’s Diner, but only on special occasions.
      Those where the day’s……..( remember Archie and Edith Bunker’s song?)
