Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

Comments Made In The Year 1955

‘I’ll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it’s going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $10.00. ‘

‘Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won’t be long before 
$1,000.00 will only buy a used one.’ 

‘If cigarettes keep going up in price, I’m going to quit; 20 cents a pack is ridiculous.‘

‘Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter.’

‘When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.’

‘If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.’ 

‘I never thought I’d see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now.‘

‘It’s too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.‘

‘It won’t be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.’

‘I’m afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.’

‘The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.’

‘There is no sense going on short trips anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.’

‘No one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it’s too rich for my blood.’

‘If they think I’ll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.’
