Remember the Day?
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?
