  2. My dad gifted me with an Underwood portable typewriter. It got a lot of use, especially when I was in college. I love old ads. These Christmas ones are the best. 🙂 — Suzanne

  4. The spring horse was only $9.99? I wanted one of those SO BAD. But nooo, I was a girl and only boys could have a spring horse. For $9.99, I would have been the happiest cowgirl in the world! Of course, that was probably a quarter of my dad’s weekly wages, back then.

    Merry Happy Christmas Holidays! 😁

    I miss my spring horse. When my children were little I found a second-hand one, and they all enjoyed it. I wish they made them in adult sizes. J.

    So many memories. 🙂

    I remember the office managers grumbling in the 1970’s. The office Christmas party used to require ties and formal wear. By the end of the 70’s the transition into casual wear had caused quite a stir among those who remembered elegance.

    The cigarette ornaments on the Christmas tree made me laugh, too.
