Remember when:

*Harry Sharpe and his wife, Lena Taylor-Sharpe were the town's only chiropractors. They treated their patients in their home on Cambridge Street N.

*The price of pork was so low that farmers would kick a pig in the rear but at the price of pork to-day, they tip their hats to them.

*Warner Oland was succeeded by Sidney Toler as the great Chinese detective Charlie Chan.

*A popular poster in school classrooms was one that urged us to "Sleep With Your Windows Open Or In The Open Air".

*A clothes-line full of baby diapers was oft seen. The diapers certainly didn't hurt our environment.

*We were told to "look after the pennies and the dollars will look after themselves".

*School children from far and wide gathered silk from milkweed pods that was put to use in manufacturing parachutes during the war.

*Stone-boats were in common use, especially on farms.

*You first learned that a duck's quack does not echo and no one knows why.
