Yeah, that's right AvalonBlondi, if you were under the age of 16 you had to get a "work permit" for a job. I remember getting mine from the Lyndhurst Board of Education and then going downtown to fill out an application for my social security number.

I got my first work permit at age 14 1/2 that was the earliest one could work. I went to work part time at Kresges Five & Dime in the candy department. Can't remember what I was making but am sure it wasn't much. Every week the store manager gave me a huge bag of chocolates to take home for free, they only kept the chocolate so long before throwing it out. I coinsidered that a real perk at the time. Things were so much simpler then weren't they?

Kresge's? I loved that place, but the closest to our home was Benjamin Franklin's Five and Dime. They had the candy aisle to die for.

One of my very first boyfriends Gene George father owned the Ben Franklins in Indiana. I got free stuff from there all the time and rode around behind him on his big black motorcycle. I felt like Olivia Newton John and he was my John Travolta. Oh be still my heart!!!

I worked in a skating rink for three years as my first job. Talk about getting to see all the guys...wuhooo! And the owners gave me a precision pair of skates and pompoms...sigh. Life was so simple when the most major decision you had to make was whether to get solid color pompoms, or half-in-half...

My guidance counselor back in high school told me then that "these are the most carefree days of your life, enjoy them."

I never forgot that wonderful lady even if I did wonder at that time if she was right. I think she was.
