A Little Gift for the Kids
July 18, 2008
When I was in third grade I went to Catholic school for a year. After school every day I would walk with a bunch of my friends to a nearby child care place where we would run around and make trouble until our parents came to get us. Honestly, I don’t remember what we used to do in those few interim hours. It was a shockingly long walk that included crossing railroad tracks and a busy intersection.
We would walk by a little candy store on the way. My mother used to give me 26 cents. With that I could buy a piece of candy. A huge gobstopper, a large pixie stick, or a ring pop were my typical purchases. But every once in awhile I would pool my money with another friend and we would buy a box of bubble gum cigarettes.

I keep wanting to burst into song…
“Rice-a-roni, the San Francisco treat.”
Does anyone else remember those commercials? Of course now I am curious, what does Rice-a-roni have to do with San Francisco? And why is it called a treat?

You know how when you are traveling with a toddler you do whatever it takes to keep them quiet and tantrum free. Turns out that it never really changes, even when your kids are 11 and 12. Except change “quiet and tantrum free” to “keep them from talking non-stop to me and forcing me to play endless cards games.”
Yup, I have 250 more of these photos. Most prominently featuring the wing of the airplane.
