The Way We Roll 12

Claude Provost, Forward

Related to yesterday's post: Because I bought a Harter chair at 10% off I saved $12, but not for long. Claude's card smiled at me with a $12 price tag.

On the back of the card I read Claude was known for his 'short, choppy style' and scored 33 goals in 1961 - 62, earning $100 for each  goal over number 15. The extra $1,800 in his pay packet was a lot of money in the early 1960s.

Why, I got a five-cent raise (to 55 cents per hour) at Maedel's Red and White (grocery store in Norwich) in 1963 and thought it was a pretty big deal. About once per week I felt like I was eating out 'for free' at Parker's Dairy Bar.

And everybody likes eating 'for free', right?
