Remember when:

*We learned that COD meant Cash On Delivery and not Call On Dad!

*"Ted" Oke was so popular that everyone patronizing Edward's Hardware Store wanted him to serve them.

*The "Lyceum", one of Lindsay's original theaters, was located on Kent Street where the Laundromat is located.

*"The Ontario Reader", sold at the T. Eaton Co. for six cents. It was one of the first readers we used in elementary school.

*Harry Hawkins and his orchestra were a Saturday night feature at the Royal Canadian Legion on York Street. Saturday night was always a fun night back then.

*Whether it be around home or school, girls would be busily occupying their time with their skipping rope. They were usually skipping and reciting, as the skipped along, the following: One, two, buckle my shoe.

Three, four, open the door.

Five, six, pickup sticks.

Seven, eight, got me a date.

Nine, ten, start again.

I don't seem to see as many girls skipping and chanting anymore.
