1978 Cost of Living
Childhood . . .
One Christmas money was really tight. I made wooden toys for the three kids and got them a refrigerator box(remember them?) to make a playhouse. They enjoyed those as much if not more than store bought toys.
1950s Sears Runabout �� w motor/trailer $1299!
Siting in my late father's abandoned house is a virtual copy of that rack component set. I think I'm gonna retrieve it.Doc,
Maybe you should hang onto that cassett deck..
Remember when turntables were worth nothing? Have you priced a top of the line turn table lately, from back in the day? Prices are going up think. So has the price of old records. I think there are new ones being made today as well.
Cassett tapes actually do a pretty good job of copying music, if you are talking top of the line tapes anyway... Who knows, could there be a day when lots of folks want them once again? Nostalgia perhaps???? It is how ever true today isn't that day lol....
Just my 2 cents..
