  1. Loving those ties. My dad (a lawyer) had (maybe still has) an extensive collection, and he would wear some really fun ones. I remember him picking us up when we were little and we always had to talk about his tie. Fun memory. And the lowest I can remember gas being was right around $2.00/gal. I’m showing my age!

    • Garry — like a lawyer especially because reporters spend as much time in court as judges — wore a tie pretty much every day of his working life. He had a huge wardrobe. Dozens of ties, but probably hundreds of shirts that to me all looked alike. He would cluck his tongue and point out that no matter how many shirts you have, you never have the PERFECT one ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Tying one on, eh? I remember gas being as low as $.25/gallon and even in the 70’s, only about $.50, cheaper than a pack of cigarettes. Since I had a VW Super Beetle, I didn’t spend much on gas, which was just as well as I didn’t have much then. ๐Ÿ™‚ What a gorgeous pump!

    • The pump is pristine — part of a sort of museum at our local super auto store. The price … well that would have been HIGH when I was growing up. I remember when gasoline was as low as 19 cents, but I also remember when it started to go up … and after that, it’s just been up and up and up. Gasoline was so cheap for so long, I don’t think any of us gave it any thought. We thought it would always be that way. (Hah … joke’s on us!)

  3. Those were the days. I absolutely adore the ties and that gas pump is pristine. Wonderful odd balls. Thanks Marilyn.

  4. The cheapest gas price I can remember was during a local gas price war between stations. It was 10 cents a gallon at its lowest point. They were practically giving it away in an all out effort to kill the competition. Those were the days when you could by bulk oil out of a drum with a crank pump on it. They had glass quart bottles with a stainless steel spout on them to dispense that oil straight to your engine. Service was by attendants that scurried around checking fluids and cleaning your windshield really well. Gone are those days! ๐Ÿ™‚
