A shiny silver dime I found sparkling up from the dirty floor board of the farm truck. A treasure, yes indeed.
I remember the excitement of having a dime to take to the Corner Market. There was penny candy back then. You could get ten pieces for that dime, or fifteen cents would buy you a delicious Hershey's candy bar (my favorite).
In Oregon there was a deposit on pop cans, so us kids would gather up cans along side the road and take them to the back of the grocery store where the nice people would pay us five cents a can. If you found a pop bottle you would get ten cents for it.
That was a great way to get candy money and it kept Oregons roadways nice and clean.
