Thank you! By the time I was old enough to use the phone on my own, we had the 232. We also had that wonderful system called party lines for quite awhile (as I recall). I don't remember when we all go + 481 more characters
Thank you! I remember the phone company being there and had friends that worked as operators. I'll have to keep an eye out as I go through the "archaeological digs" since I have a narrower time frame + 270 more characters
You're welcome. Perhaps you could record what you do remember of your Dad's stories. I know the sense of regret . . . I never got the chance to get Mom's stories before she was gone. Seems like we alw + 85 more characters
So sorry to hear about your Uncle Emil. I understand all too well the emotional issues when someone you care about is suffering or ill and there's no way to get there or really do anything. I wish the + 407 more characters
Thank you! Being sort of a "mid-century" thing myself, that does coincide with my memory that it was probably 1960s. I don't remember calling them "boats", but I do remember eating the contents.
Thank you, Shu! I don't remember the brownie ones being as popular when I was a kid, but maybe the folks just ordered what they wanted. I do remember ice cream cones for a dime and baby cones for fre + 253 more characters
Probably not a surprise that I'm asking for assistance again--some memories are harder to pin down as the years go by. I've located a large quantity (13 so far) of plastic Dairy Queen dishes. The stan + 486 more characters
As I recall, after Mom finished getting her shot at the clinic upstairs, we were sometimes treated to a Coke at Foster Drug (usually, we had to settle for a sucker from the doctor's office; however, o + 210 more characters
Interestingly enough, there is no Foster Drug and no Big Sky Pharmacy. The Drugs Section of the Directory lists only Thompson Rexall Drug and Western Pharmacy, with the former being the only one I cou + 76 more characters
I'm not positive when the 232 prefix started, but the number at the house here was (still is) 232. The folks bought it in January 1959. They were on N 4th before that, so they may have brought the num + 112 more characters
I think I like $3.00 better! Of course, I suspect my age has been "adjusted for inflation" by now too!
Lots of memories with the ads and features (48 pages long). I picked a couple I thought might bring back a few memories: url url Happy to check for others upon request.
Things were different in the "good old days". I just stumbled across some old MDU door tags (Form 385.1). They date back to somewhere between January 7, 1963 and January 6, 1968 based upon the $.04 po + 496 more characters
Thank you! I confess I still think of it as being "Foster Drug". It's hard to believe, too, that we've been struggling with the childproof bottles that long! Of course, it's hard to believe how old I + 115 more characters
One of today's "treasures" is a collection of Foster Drug prescription bottles filled with vintage snap fasteners--most appear to be the "pearl" western fasteners (2 bottles of round and 1 of square). + 612 more characters
I don't remember exactly when the costs went through the roof; however, it seems to me to be related to the uptick in insurance. When you add in what you have to pay for the insurance, it's even worse + 209 more characters
Mom passed away in 2010 so I suspect she no longer cares if these are disclosed. (Yes, I'm going through the archaeological digs.) I don't remember what she was hospitalized for in 1959 (I wasn't very + 403 more characters
You're welcome!
My solution is to have the mask up on my nose high enough that my glasses essentially "seal" the mask so it doesn't fog up. There are a wide variety of masks out there and different ones seem to work + 314 more characters
For those that don't think it's real or that we won't feel the impact here: url My condolences to the family.
