1950s Sandwich Menu from Woolworth's. ...
Our Generation's Fast Food.
If any of you have doubt about what we kids paid for a coke and a sandwich at
Woolworths (How many don't know what Woolworth's was?)in the 1950s, here's proof of the era we lived...Can you imagine getting a Banana Split for .25 cents, hot chocolate for .15 cents or apple pie for .15 cents. I'm not even sure our children or grandchildren could make these so cheaply. Those were the simple days, days of innocence and times when children could be children without any fears. I well remember riding my bike across town, to Stanford University, when I was in grade school. We played in the hills and were often out for hours at a time without supervision; I can't imagine that being the case today unless you are blessed to live on the land without neighbors. To those who are raising little ones in this day and age, I pray that somehow you can carve out an area in your life that allow your children to play with wild abandonment, to run free and experience the joy of being in nature. For those who live in the cities, I pray the Lord gives you creative alternatives that allow you to get your children out into nature and enjoy their childhood. Of course a good dose of warmth would help; maybe during winter it is the time to build forts inside and play with Lego's or to go cross country skiing as a family.
Have a blessed weekend enjoying the simple things of life.
