How many of us busted our asses with these??? And how many lost the key in the first week? (Raising hand over here to both)
This old cooler is another one- It probably dates to the late 50s-early 60s, and held bottles in the ‘racks’, and used chilled water to cool the cokes, which cost .06 cents.
In the middle of the summer, we would ‘skate’ down the road to the drugstore that was a couple of blocks away, and for less than a quarter get a Coke and a bag of peanuts (actually, I think for less than .20 cents, if I remember right). Once we’d cooled off, we would either skate back home or go to somebody else’s house, and end up walking home just before dark.
We were ‘free range’ kids in more ways than one, but I don’t ever remember us having any trouble other than getting our butts beat for coming home late for dinner. Now days, if you aren’t standing over your kids watching them from FEET away, apparently you get CPS called on your ass.
