Remember the Day?

Remember...
  • When no one locked their doors?
  • We sat on the front porch counting different makes of cars? In those days models like the Cadillac coupe de ville were more glamorous.
  • Everyone had a front porch and we were invited to sip lemonade and chit chat?
  • When we acquainted ourselves with neighbors by walking the streets?
  • Saturday morning cartoons and newsreels?
  • Driveways were too narrow for anything but the Model-Ts?
