My First Job
My first job (9 yrs old - 1944) was at a Aldrich's Sunoco
Service Station at 2800 North Dixie Highway in Northridge, Dayton, Ohio.
oil bottles, washed windshields and rear windows, mirrors, emptied ashtrays, wet toweled dash board ------
free for customer, got tips plus $0.25 per hour!
Bought my 1st (almost new) Schwinn bicycle. It had knee action on
front wheel, chrome fender with streamlined
headlight on the front, chrome panel in middle of frame with a push button
horn, large bright leather seat with coiled springs on corners, and custom Schwinn reflector on rear fender, AND White Wall
Tires! Bought it from the gas station owner
for $25 and bought it on extended payments of $5 per week!
Schwinn Black Phantom
(This pix is of the exact bike I had...pix on internet say the one in this pix is from 1950...Mine was an Arnold Schwinn
“My new Phantom sure is a beauty. All the fellows say it’s the swellest
looking bike in town.” Sure is the swellest. Schwinn Phantoms
were the most bodacious, luxurious, and feature-filled bicycles on the road. There was the deluxe leather saddle, the
patented spring fork, built-in horn, streamlined tank, Schwinn fender lights and an automatic brake light,
an integrated lock.
ago, I found a replica of that bicycle in green...still have the replica...paid $25 for the replica! :)
Thanks for sharing and nudging me into remembering my first job & bicycle.

Karen Smith Forrer, my high school English teacher, gave me a monogrammed folio when I graduated, with the stipulation that I use the
pad within to write the great American novel.
I made sure to copy the first page of Digging Up The Bones onto it when I completed the final draft. Write? Check.
As for the great, American, and novel, looks like I’m in luck. Apparently, good enough
American stories will meet those requirements. I’m delighted.

A NEW SCHOOL BUILDING TO BE BUILT
The voters in the Northridge Local School District voted
to approve a bond issue and maintenance levy to build a new consolidated school. The State of Ohio will supply forty-two
million dollars of the fifty-five million dollar project. Ground breaking is expected to start sometime in 2016 and possibly
be ready for the 2018/2019 school year.
