Default Then and now

When I was 17 I would go out with friends for dinner on the last sunday night before the start of school. A 4 course dinner would cost $1.

We would then go to an ice cream parlor and splurge .For a quarter we would get an ice cream soda with 3 scoops of our favorite flavors .

Back then that was a lot of money, and most couldn't or wouldn't have spent it in that way.
