  1. I vividly remember attending Safety Town in the town where I grew up. Apparently it was recommended/required for kids before they entered kindergarten: I was four.

    The biggest thing I remember was how hard it was to learn my home phone number, but we were all expected to know it in case of an emergency. Eventually I learned it and got the “knot” in the yarn tail of the pasteboard mouse for it. (We all had little cardstock mice, with a piece of yarn for the tail, and every time we mastered one of the skills, we got to tie a knot in the tail, so you could see at a glance how far someone had advanced at Safety Town)

  2. Wing Ding! I remember that episode of The Lucy Show from 57 years ago. What a hoot!
