What Was In Your Lunch Box? Childhood memories of the 60's and 70's (80's and 90's welcome too)

   This just pooped into my head and I will write more when I get back from running errands. While making my grocery list for this week I had a flash back to my childhood. Those wonderful metal lunch boxes, glass thermoses filled with milk, pudding cups and fruit cups that were in little metal cans with pop top lids. Those were the days. I remember boloney sandwiches with American cheese, tuna salad sandwiches and PB&J's. I believe I had a Partridge family lunch box in '71. I would have been in first grade. Metal lunch boxes and glass thermoses had a distinctive smell.

    Please respond in the comments with your childhood lunch box memories. I am feeling nostalgic. Now I know some of you are too young to remember metal lunch boxes. Some of you may only have memories of vinyl lunch bags. That is O.K. , lunch box memories of the '80s and '90s welcome too.

So What was in your Lunch box?

Graduation 2009

Yay! Richard Graduated!- A little sad though too. He has been in the school system since he was 3 months old. He loved school and he had some awesome teachers down through the years. Richard is my special needs child and was able to stay in school through age 21. Now what?-- Well, I am not sure. One of his old vision teachers is helping me design a program and come up with activities for him. I will be like homeschooling an adult although he has the mind and heart of a child. My hubby's work is going to hire him as an independent contractor to de-bur plastic parts. That is something we believe Rich will be able to do. Well I will keep you posted. Anyway here are some graduation pictures.
