Tag along as the author recounts his amusing observations about everyday life with family and friends during the 1950s and early 60s. Reminisce about root beer barrels and Necco wafers- Howdy Doody and Bonanza- collecting baseball cards and building models. Delight in his enjoyable anecdotes about school days, as in the The Infamous Saltine Affair, and those endless summers of picnics, cutting through neighbors lawns, and Wiffle Ball games. Youll meet such people as Dirk the Destroyer, Ping Pong Paulie with the Ping Pong Head, and the sinister school nurse, Miss Kruckel, who examined our teeth and gums as if purchasing a horse at an auction. Enjoy a return to a time when jeans were called dungarees, school desks doubled as air raid shelters, war games involved only plastic soldiers, and a bloody knee was considered a right of passage.
