It was a time, when kids found plenty to do outside the house. It was County Fairs, quiet streets, wish lists, community barbeques, things paid for with cash, if you couldn't afford it you probably didn't need it. A time of neighbors and neighborhoods, of real friends. It was a time of family.
And it has become, a paradise lost.

Before we called them - "Buddy" or "Pal" ... They were our children.
In hard times or good times - they were at our side. We talked with them, listened to radio together, we read to them, laughed with them, played and worked with them.
Today, we teach our "Buddies" and "Pals" to work hard, to get a good job ... so you can buy good things on credit - I wonder what our father's father was taught by his parents????

A milkman delivers an order circa 1940. Does this occupation even exist anymore?

The pledge of allegiance was originally written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a socialist magazine writer. When he wrote it for an children’s magazine, he also described a salute that he thought would be appropriate during its recital.
The pledge was aimed towards children, and the magazine also gave free flags away to schools, where the pledge was originally recited. The salute they were taught to give, with one stiff arm outstretched toward the flag, was deemed the “Bellamy salute” after its creator (who had gotten the idea from a salute that the Romans had done).
In the early 1940s, it was noticed that the salute bore a resemblance to a certain other salute being used in Germany at the time (which was based off of the same original Roman salute). As a result, it was formally replaced by Congress with the now-customary hand-on-heart during the pledge.
