    I was young in the 60s, and I got a dollar each time…that was lots of money back then. I also got a dollar for allowance, and I once used my dollar to buy an Uncle Wiggly game. Wonder how much that game would cost now…

    We only got like quarters and fifty-cent-pieces when I was growing up in the 60s. And no allowance at all. My mother’s excuse to me was that my brother wasted any money he was given, and she couldn’t give me an allowance and not give him one. Even then I couldn’t see why not. Maybe he would have learned something.

    My family was kind of the opposite. None of us got an allowance until I was in my teens (I was #6 of 7 kids). My father was so surprised that I asked for one that I got it, paving the way for my younger brother to get one. I remembered being TERRIFIED of asking, and so surprised by my father’s positive reaction. Oh, and it was quarters from the Tooth Fairy.

    Everyone knows the tooth-fairy is a voodoo priest.

    I think I got a nickel or dime for teeth mostly .. perhaps once I got a quarter … times were tough. Instead of an allowance, we had to earn our $$ by doing chores, such as cutting grass, weeding garden, etc. Now, I see kids 8 yrs. old walking down the street with their fancy cell phones, while I use my $24.95 Samsung no frills unit from Walmart. It’s a crazy world we live in …

    Odd to see teeth taken from the tooth fairy recycled into billard balls for your pool table.

    More likely recycled into dentures

    I saved my son’s first lost tooth, and whenever the tooth fairy came, I usually stuck a quarter under his pillow. He asked where does the tooth fairy go with all the children’s teeth. I pointed up to the sky and told him that all the stars in the heavens were little children’s teeth….he bought it at the time!

    As a wee child, I got a dime each from the Tooth Fairy for my first teeth…In spite of the Fifties being the “Happy Days” decade, inflation had caused the reward for a tooth to go up to a quarter before I was done losing them…
    That was a long, long time ago (in a place far, far away), and that same quarter would have also paid for a gallon of gasoline in those heady days when money was real an’ actually had decent purchasing power… …

    Yes indeed, got a dime a tooth and a quarter a week if all my chores were done. Every Friday night was payday and Saturday we went to the movies. A nickle for the movie, A nickle for the popcorn and a nickle for the drink and a nickle for the call home to come get us. The last nickle was put in the piggy bank. Those were the days but I wouldn’t want to go back and do it all again.

    All this talk about the tiny amounts of money we used to get as allowance or from the tooth fairy reminds me that it was all about self discipline and delayed gratification. Was that bad or good? I think it was good but I’m biased by my age group, I think.

    Remember when “a dollar’s worth of regular” was like a quarter of a tank?

    Sorry, Linus. You were paid for that tooth—that’s all you get.

    (Dont believe everything Lucy tells you. )
