I take it you're asking what your family didn't have here?

Jewel, some of our candy was "two for a penny."  My granddaughter's eyes grew wide when I told her we didn't have seatbelts or pantyhose - and that we only had three tv stations.  Remember when they all signed off after midnight?

But she thought it cool that we played outdoors until dark.

Razor blades or needles in our candy
Fast food
Shopping malls
Pedophiles around most corners
Automatic washers
Clothes dryers
Electric coffee pots, fryers, etc.
Permanent press clothing
Steam irons
School buses
Designer labels
Portable radios
Time-outs
Shopping malls
Gas lawn mowers
Clock radios
Locked doors
Mass shootings

Thanks for the help.  Keep it coming.
