50's Grocery Shopping

I’ll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are,
it’s going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $10.00.

55 Red ChevyHave you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won’t be long before $2,000.00 will only buy a used one.

LetterDid you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter?

Gas PricesWhen I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.

Lunar Landing
I read the other day where some scientist thinks it’s possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas.

Joltin Joe DamagioDid you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn’t surprise me if someday they’ll be making more than the President.

Old Electric Typewriter
I never thought I’d see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They’re even making electric typewriters now.

VolkswagonI’m afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.

Speaker EisenhowerThank goodness I won’t live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government.

Original McDonaldsThe fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

50's HotelThere is no sense going on short trips anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

Hospital BedsNo one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it’s too rich for my blood.

GI HaircutIf they think I’ll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.

Meat Market

If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.
