Didn't realize it till I look back now and wonder how we made it. Eight years of Catholic grade school and never had the few bucks to enroll in school lunch or milk program. Never owned a lunch box cause there was nothing to put in it. Always had an Easter outfit and plenty of toys at Christmas, cause that could be charged and paid off a month at a time . Last family in the neighborhood to get a TV,but it was such a big deal I still remember the day it came. Yeah I guess we were poor but no one knew, not even us.
