I remember when comic books only cost twelve cents . . ..
Remember when a comic book and a fudgesicle was ten cents? Enjoy the ride.
Ten-cent comics were slightly before my time. I remember them being twelve cents, then fifteen.

And, yeah, it's the rapid changes in technology that sometimes leave me feeling like a dinosaur.I learned to type on a manual typewriter and the only computer education I received in school involved cutting out punchcards with scissors.

Heck, when if first started out in publishing, back in the late eighties,all the editors and assistants still used typewriters, and editing was still done with a red pencil and post-its. And manuscripts arrived in the mail, not over the internet . . . .

(I have to admit that I don't miss White-out and correction tape.)
My college life would have been so much more pleasant if I'd had a computer to work on for all those papers. On the other hand, I had a manual typewriter from my sister that was the same model George Reeves used in 'The Adventures of Superman'
