How about the penguin YSU had in an enclosure in the 60's?
Boots Bell - yes indeedy doody daddy! And Johnny Kay.
Spending 50 cents to have your fortune told at Idora Park.
The malteds that came in a small glass in the basement in Strouss'.
Riding the bus and enjoying it.
The Aquarian Age head shop on Madison Ave.
Concerts in Wick Park with slices of cake being sold for 25 cents.
Having a whole quarter, going swimming at Northside Pool and still having enough left for an ice cream cone at the DQ across the street.
Feeding the ducks in Crandall Park.
Walking to school in all kinds of weather and not complaining.
Rushing home from school to watch Dark Shadows.
Changing the date on your paper drivers' permit so you could get in bars. There were no photos then, so borrowing your older cousin's was easy too!
