For Eddie and Connie

This is for my good friends Eddie and Connie~! We were reliving some of the good old days last night, like when you could get ICE COLD cokes in GLASS bottles~!

(For those of you too young to remember the Valomilk was a marshmallow candy in a chocolate cup; kinda like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups of today. The pretty bottles
were fruit juice in a wax bottle. You drank the juice and chewed the wax.)
You could get a lot of candy for a dime back then. Kits came in different flavors and had five individually wrapped pieces in a package; my favorites were the chocolate. The package cost a penny. Or you could spend a nickel and get a whole candy bar~! Fruit striped gum was a big favorite of many kids also.
