Life was sweet when a great meal could be bought for two-bits
Comments re article 82711 Charles Marshburn Old if he remembers McDonalds at 15 cents
By Jon Halsey
Right on Tractor Man and it wasn't just Micky Dees.
Two-bits bought a 'burger, a plate of "REAL" fries and a nickle more added a fountain coke on real pottery and glassware with metal utensils and "ketchup" in a bottle.
3-plays on the Juke for another two-bits and life was sweet.
However, we realized the world as we knew it was on the way out when Coke and PayPhones doubled in price from 5 to 10 cents and gas went north of 25 cents.
Don't know that I'd want to go back but wouldn't it be fun to have the opportunity to have a go at it.. - Jon Halsey
