307. Being fascinated with the drip pan under the ice box

and how big the blocks of ice were when they were delivered every other day.

Getting bread and milk delivered to separate boxes on the front porch. Seeing the milk bottle lids popped off and sitting on a column of frozen cream on super cold days.

Feeding the rag man's horse a piece of carrot.

Watching my parents do hobbies while radio shows played (we got the first TV on the block when I was four).

Loving the old Dumont Netowrk's animation of a big ass plane circling an itty bitty earth when they signed on.

Getting free miniature loaves of bread when supermarkets would have a grand opening (now they just get sold out and put new signs up).

And mostly, being trusted to play outside all over the neighborhood, as long as I came home before it got dark. Walking to school by myself and to the park by myself at the age of seven and feeling very grownup when I did it.
