    I use to love to stick my finger in the top of the delivered milk and lick off the cream. Mom would yell, of course, cause that was for her coffee. And you all know where little boys fingers had been.
    Went to the drive-in past w/e. They telecast the stero sound through your FM dial. Sounds fantastic!
    I remember the wash tub & ringer sitting down in the basement, but never seeing it used.
    I'm older than dirt too.

    Here's some more paths down mem'ry lane:
    Glass IV bottles
    enamel/stainless steel bedpans/urinals
    (and collecting them to take to be washed a night?)
    Glass syringes and sending needles back to c/s
    re-wrapped,"sterilized" resp equipment (seems ewwww now)
    when gloves were only for 'dirty jobs', ie; "code Brown"
    thanks, I've enjoyed this.
