How i loved being a Baby Boomer and life in the most magical era! ... 💓...
Memories flood my mind as i remember life when it was simple compared to today.
If you were alive in the 60's, you might remember some of these things. If not, enjoy the stroll!
Bought postage stamps the other day and a single stamp costs 50 cents... 🤔..
I remember filling my little red Volkswagen for $2.10.
When my younger brother and i walked to town, we made sure to take a dime in case we needed to use the phone booth.
I remember crowding in as many girlfriends as we could possibly fit!... 😍 ..
Not to forget those slumber parties Where we never slept a wink LOL!
This was the style when i was in high school--💄..Plus lots of skirts and sweaters. (Pencil skirts) I made a lot of my own clothes--liked the simple lines.
My mother dressed like this when we went to church. ..👠..Women always wore nylons, heels and hats. ..👒..When i was a senior in high school we were able to wear pants to school, but of course no jeans. I remember thinking how vogue stirrup pants were!
Anyone remember collecting those stamps to fill a book? When we filled a book we could redeem For something we thought cool!
Oh yeh! If you had a walkman, you were really cool! lol And as for cameras, i got into photography and started at the age of twelve with a Brownie---the little square box!
More styles and famous stars! ...👄
These are just a few highlights--I could go on and on but if you are a Baby boomer, or your parents were, you likely remember those years! I know i do quite fondly! I loved the music of that era and tuning in every day to American Bandstand with Dick Clark! And of course I had my favorite couples!
Have a good day and thanks for stopping by!
P.S. Almost forgot! I got my 1st real job days after I turned 16 and my hourly wage was something like $2.11 per hour! I was thrilled to be working!
