counted 16-I bought a Winchester model 94 at Woolco Dept store(kind of a grandaddy to Walmart) for 62.00 + sales tax. Tax was like 2 percent. White people still worked in the packing houses and my hometown had the largest stockyards in the world- now a massive parking lot littered with stores here and there. I went 2 years once without buying new license for my pick-up or even registering it, got picked up in it while driving drunk and the cop told me to go home,he'd be by in a few minutes to see if I made it...registering the truck after 2 years cost less than if I'd registered the truck when I bought it and paid for new tabs. We still walked the bean fields, and baled hay and stacked it in the barn. Most of our vegetables and fruit were canned by Mom or Grandma. I walked beans for 2 weeks to save enough money to buy a transistor radio. It came with a single earbud. A 340 Rupp was a mean snowmobile and the '59 Harley Panhead I bought a week after high school graduation was worth more when I sold it than when I bought it.You could knock the snot out of some kid it school, if he was messing with you, and no one would say much about it. You could buy Ripple for about .55 a bottle. Life was good.
