The candy lipsticks and the many varieties of candy all in different little boxes, and oh yes, the price was a delight to eye! Three of them for a nickel, my how that has changed. Now the same candy is fifteen cents a piece or at best a nickel each. A smiling face a friend to talk to, bottles of coke for a quarter, now priced at $1.25 to $1.59. Sharing with friends and the wooden smell of the shops, now only replaced by no smell or by someones perfume or aftershave. Fumes of oil trucks and city cars, diesel and reg., coughing children, adults, teens. Oh for the days when all was so tranquil. The schools, some of them still have the cafeteria smells, home made buns and homemade cooking. Your aunts and their friends and mom's too, all gathering to help make the school day I bit more tolerable.
