    There were only 3 channels on the tv. Captain Kangaroo was the only kids show in the morning,then it was game shows and soap operas. So you got on your bike and you didn't come home til the whistle blew. Noon, 6 o'clock, and 9. You took a bath on Saturday night. Whether you needed it or not.

    Nobody was ever in a hurry . The old timers would sit around and talk about how good like was and how bad it was in the 30s

    Most of the roads were gravel , Pop bottles had a deposit and they were like cash. it was good business for a kid but everybody was doing it so it was slim pickings. . Muskrats were anywhere from $ 1.50 up to $ 7.00 one year, mink $ 15- 45.00 Tire patches on my 5 buckle overshoes and bread sacks to keep my feet dry , Boy they were cold.

    We went to town every Saturday morning to sell cream and buy groceries and we took one yearly trip to Deloraine Manitoba in the fall to buy Sugar, Flour and other baking supplies in bulk.

    Party line telephone so you would have to wait for the neighbors to finish talking before you could use it The old timers would "rubberneck" and listen to neighbors talking. WHite gas and kerosene lanterns for outside and no mercury lights the earth was was pitch black out in the country.

    If you ever heard a car horn honk you took it seriously it was someone trying to get your attention and not locking or unlocking their car doors.

    Popular science magazine was about the only view we had of technology .

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also there were tough days in the 40s during the war when there were ration stamps. there would be 3 or 4 wore out tires strapped to a car or in the trunk for spares because you couldn't buy new ones. Lots of the old Tractors were hauled in and melted down .

    Neighbors used to come at night to visit. Smoke cigarettes in your house.(My parents didn't smoke, didn't think anything of it,would put out an ashtray for them) And stay all night.

    Cutting enough firewood to heat a big two story uninsulated house and jumping into an ice cold bed with about 6 heavy old blankets. Once you got a spot warmed up you didn't move.

    everyone rolled their own. My dad could have impressed the modern day hippies , I remember riding with him feeding cattle with the old M when I was about 4 before I was going to school and him pulling a pouch of Dukes tobacco and his papers out and rolled up a fatty with one hand when he was driving . The reason I remember it so well is that I was sitting in his lap looking up at him and I got tobacco in my eye .
