20: 1. My grandma was with her family a lot more than with her friends. She has 3 brothers and 3 sisters. They always ate together as a family and her parents were strict on table manners and the way they ate. 2. My grandma got to hang out with her friends a lot. On a date her and her date would go to a photo shop, which is kind of like a mall today. It was where teenagers used to hang out. They would also go to see a movie or go to a sports event. Gone with the WInd was one movie she can remember going on a date on and seeing. Her parents were strict on dates and she had to be home by 10-11. Her parents had to know who was going. 3. She lived in a community, like most people did, called Thomasboro. There weren't many farms, but there were a lot of gardens in their back yards. 4. Her parents were strict about school. Her parents always wanted their children to get good grades. They still went to school on the weekdays and for about 9 months. She liked school a lot.
21: 5. Her first job was when she was 16 years old at a department store. She made around $2 an hour. This was while she was in high school and after high school she went and worked at a bank. She did do chores, but she didn't get an allowance. 6. Sports were a big deal back then like they are now. She liked to go to sports events at school, but they didn't have football back then. Some of her hobbies were sewing, and getting together with friends. 7. Girls wore hoop skirts and ballerina slippers and curled their hair. She cared a lot about how she looked. She tried to keep up with what everyone had on. 8. World War II impacted her life a little, but there weren't many other things that impacted her as far as she can remember. She can remember when the first people went up into space. 9. Prices back then were very low. For example, a movie was about 50 cents and bread was only about a quarter. The prices back then weren't very high to them. 10. She didn't get her first car until she was 18 and it was a dark blue 50's Chevrolet. She was allowed to drive to school and back and on weekends. Her curfew was 11 o'clock on the weekends.
