Lio by Mark Tatulli
Who knew you could go so far on 50 cents?
The horse at the Meijers grocery store was NEVER that much fun ! ! ! But than again, the horse only cost $.01 and still does. I wonder if its a hybrid???
Whoa! That one’s an endangered animal! Ten cents per ride? Unheard of in these days and times. Go on, Dad. Usually those things cost five times as much. Go wild!
Spaceman Lio (a tribute to Spaceman Spiff/Calvin?) needs those dimelithiums, Dad! –And it’s a cheap thrill; rides like that were at least a quarter, if not more, last time i saw any….
Ten cents? That’s what it cost my Mom for my horsey rides on shopping day in the1950’s!
As kids, we never got money for the rides, we’d bounce around on the things and make motor noises til a paying customer came along.
No guys not 10 cents one cent as in a penny, they are the penny ponies and they have Been that price at Meijer stores since they opened in 1934.
Meijer (pronounced my-er) started the super center ie grocery and department store combined, concept in 1962. They have stores in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky.
Some of these sure bring back great memories.
Yeah, Meijer is a great store.
If anyplace around here had one of those rockets, I drop coins in it every time just to make the smoke, if for nothing else.
Love the paint job!
A Rocket Boy.
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
Dad’s happy to see Lio do something that people would consider normal; usually Lio does things that get him on the 6 o’clock news.
Wow… Dad looks really pleased with himself, even though he wears shorts and sandals in December. I mean, doesn’t he get cold?
Yes, WillowsDreaming, I know about the penny ponies. But this rocket SAYS 10 cents on it – go and look – so I was not incorrect (this time).
Needs a new pair-a-dime…
NASA’s got the same problem.
Lio doing something normal? sacrilege
