In the '76 election, on voting day, mom took me with her into the voting booth to show me the process of voting. I seem to recall that she voted for Ford. If I remember correctly, I was kind of bummed out bcause I was missing my favorite TV show. Plus, if I'd known at the time she was voting for the loser, I'd have found any excuse to stay home that night.

When I was a kid, I didn't receive an allowance. However, there always seemed to be about 45 cents in spare change I could scrape together between the cushions of the sofa in our living room. I think candy bars were about 20 cents, so I'd have some spare change left over. My folks never seemed to ask me where I got the money, and I never told them. I figured if I did tell them, they'd be more careful about the change in their pockets and my money supply would run dry. It was definitely a "don't ask, don't tell" type of arrangement..
