|Cars were classic!|
A little more meat on the bones was considered beautiful.
Elvis was king.
Women dressed with elegance---mostly in dresses. 'Casual' was a housedress.
We wore these to bed. And sometimes to the market, if we had to. Painful!
This was every woman's dream.
She was every man's dream.
Or you could sell a little kiss for charity.
And back in those days, Father knew best.
No, life wasn't perfect back then. We didn't all have a 55' Chevy or a dreamy home. Dad certainly didn't have all of the answers and the tv was on the blink more often than not. Women couldn't get great jobs. Often they didn't want them. The economy permitted many of them to be housewives (which back in the day, was an honored profession, and still is, to my way of thinking.) Music was upbeat. Movies usually had happy endings where the good guys always won. And the luncheonettes had the best darned greasy burgers with fries that you've ever eaten! Nope, life was far from perfect, be gee, it was swell!
